Just an observation; BOINC has a lot of projects, most of which have different goals and aims. The best way of getting more BOINC members is deciding the Project of the Month (don't know whether you've started that yet?), then promoting the goal of that project.

With so many different options, people are split over what exactly they're working towards. With a single project to focus on, it would be a lot easier to get word out.

Indeed it has: https://www.overclock.net/overclock-n...ne-2010-a.html (it's Rosetta). But I'm sure you know that already

There's also both project and team (other team) challenges that people/we could contribute towards.

Team Challenges
Project Challenges

49 active people (according to BOINCstats, which looking at it, has to be wrong) and pretty much 99.99% of the contribution is held by 4 people

While that's true, I think first of all you need to raise awareness. Use the Project of the Month as a platform to get new members into BOINC, then give them the information to spread to other projects.
