Have more content, draw in/back more people. Have content titled in ways that maximize search results, increase the likelyhood someone is to find said content and come here.
Even if it is good for the site it's hard to want to spend the time creating what one might think is a useful piece of literature to have it read by a bunch of people but not interacted with. Worse, it often brings in the classic GW 'internet rager' that just makes you want to shut off the monitor and go outside or something. I want to write a new edition of the BA article I wrote when the 7th ed. 'dex came out that incorporates some of the new stuff that's happened since as well as my own vastly superior knowledge of the game and army compared to when the book was initially released, but spending any amount of time writing something that large when the last thing I posted on the topic felt
like a waste of time...
Well, even you admitted that you stopped trying with the tacticas and reviews. Unless I read your post wrong.
I would if given free reign merge most of them.
It can't make anything worse, that's for sure. For some reason it didn't occur to me that you intended on keeping categories like that, but rather '40k Tactical Articles' and '40k Army Lists' for examples and everything that fell under that header would be there regardless of Faction.
Lack of content is biting this place compared to those other sites mentioned.
I see a lot of the same topics across all those forums and this one, what I don't see is people involving themselves in the conversation. I don't frequent anything but BoLS and Natfka (admittedly, I occasionally look with longing at the BA membership of B&C) so that I can transfer rumour mill stuff from there to here, but I am oddly entirely caught up on all current conversations in my group via conversations I have here about rules queries and the game as a whole. Sure, we could always use more content, but even when the content is the same (or even ahead of others with some pictures in the Rumours forums) we still seem to have the same issues.
