Where did everyone go?

I’ve noticed that forum activity seems to have dropped a lot recently.

 

It used to be that there were new postings appearing pretty regularly across multiple forums, but not so much recently.

 

Has anyone else noticed this, or am I just imagining it?

I've long noticed that forum activity is seasonal, depending on what's going on in Real Life(tm). We've just come off summer vacation season, and now we're in the surge of back-to-school. I would say, let's give it a little time before we start to depress ourselves, see if things pick back up. :)

Every forum I use has seen a drop in activity (hopefully not because I’m a member…), there are simply too many alternatives. Despite Discord’s chatroom style steam being singularly unsuitable as a forum substitute it does appear to suit what a lot of people like, so it draws folks away. Same with Reddit and the rest.

Yeah, I think this is the biggest factor.  People often end up discussing things wherever they already are, even if other places are better suited to the discussions.

Some of it's from the continuing drift away from forums, but I agree about seasonality as well. Certainly I've been occupied with other things lately. Bu I'll be cranking up another Hero campaign for the fall and winter. There's nothing better to bring warmth and light to a long, cold, dark winter. :)
