Yes.  The LNH20 launch is a success on that criteria at least.  
However, I would caution against automatically assuming that is a 
long term indicator.  I've noticed a similar statistical aretefact in the 
past - for several years running Dvandom put of a single LNH story 
that similarly raised the stats on the number of writers.
The LNH imprints all share a powerful storytelling flexibility because 
of their anarachic, parody nature.  It allows people to dip in briefly 
and post stories as inspiration takes them.  But ultimately I try to 
keep in mind that different writers have diferent preferences for 
what imprints they primarily work for.   Resting on laurels would 
probably be a bad idea.
