First off, thanks for running a bridge.  Bridges are divided into at
least four pools in the bridge database. The pools are web, email,
manual and other, effectively. If your bridge was slotted into the
latter two pools, it will take a while to get some users. An
alternative is that your bridge is already blocked in some countries,
such as China, and other users haven't found it yet.
