It'd be good for a change to go out and actively get some new blood on a couple of platforms that don't have the widest selection of games.
I'm with you completely on this one. I think Angband only appeals to a small proportion of people, but a lot of those just may not get to hear about it unless it's around.

Because of this,I have started advertising for the last couple of releases of FA. I don't know how many more players it got me (there were certainly lots of downloads quoted...), but I did get two offers of ports from this (one to OS X, one to Ubuntu) so I guess someone noticed it.

I heard from rgrd that www.versiontracker.com is the number one Mac site, so used that - and it then appeared on any number of other Mac sites. I also listed on Happy Penguin, and on download.com.
