Mod!Post -- Lonely Prompts Issues

If you've spent any amount of time here on comment_fic, you know we have a few issues in the area of Lonely Prompts. For any given day we have lots of prompts that go unwritten and end up in our Lonely Prompts index.

That index is growing way out of control, despite the lonely prompts Sundays and challenges.

We need to do something about this in order to spare our hard working code monkeys and llama the incredible effort of keeping up. We really don't want to go to the point of having to restrict the number of prompts a person can leave, and we don't really want to start deleting lonely prompts...but we might have to do both.

So, I have some questions for you. The mods, code monkeys and I will discuss the results and make some decisions based on the poll.
