The downtime would have been enough to make me look elsewhere.
But would it be enough for you to take people with you and setup a competing site? ;) Depends on the relationships you've built during the time I suppose.
TBH I think the OP needs to breakdown the reasons people are still leaving his site now it's up and running again. I've had people try and poach members / copy my sites - best strategy I found was to basically ignore them and focus on improving my own sites. In fact, the few occaisions that this has happened have been perhaps the most creative and constructive periods of development I've had. Something to be said for motivation! ;)
