I find PMing to be an excellent idea actually. If you check the sent messages you can definitely see if the player opened them or not. Coupled with the impending zzz of inactivity, it gives you a good reason to suspect the player dropped out of GP entirely. A lot of people try it out and them find it’s not for them (or life happens!). You can see when the player joined on their profile and some people actually take that in account when choosing.
My experience is l that, if a game truly stalls, it will almost surely die out... Even if it starts again, people lose interest and move on due to the loss of pace... Routine and consistency seems to be the key thing you should look for (after the character creation momentum!) to measure the “health of the game” as far as I can tell
OOC:yeah, I think Coriolis is one of them, so join the other space game that showed up recently as a replacement instead of waiting for it to restart :D
