Do you suppose people might be holding out because they want to enter vote #264?
It wouldn't surprise me - I myself actually waited an extra week or two to join Wikipedia Review, because I wanted to be the 100th member. At the time I didn't even realize that the board doesn't store that sort of information - I ended up being Member ID #275, and nobody remembers where I was at in the sequence. (I think I ended up being, like, 97th or something.)
And I don't think it's just me... there's always a lull period just before we reach a "landmark" number. Just before the 1,000th member recently, I think we went for almost a week without a single human registrant, whereas normally we get at least one or two a day.
