Trying to improve the community can be productive with thousands of people following you. Trying to improve the community can be an act of futility with little or no people expressing interest in what you're trying to accomplish. Just try the best you can and hope that it will all lead to something positive somewhere down the road. Even if the positive accomplishment is a small increment of one or two, it's one or two steps forward. And even if you do a tiny bit at a time, then even if the pace is slow, it will all be worth it in the end. Then in the end, everybody will say that you were right all along and they will all apologize for having doubted you. And that alone is reward enough.
