Apparently not.  You are here and your picture does not give me the impression that you are dead.

Due to client needs I've not been able to put in the promotion times I wanted. Got to put the paying clients ahead of non-paying projects.

There are a number of things waiting in the wings for launch that I just need the time to get to that should help drive some traffic.

Same here.  Daily visits are not uncommon.
Still enjoy the discussions.

Hi there sunfighter and jmrker,

the reason for my enquiry was that prior to this thread
of mine on the 22nd, the previous post was on the 11th.  ???

Passing by really does nothing to enliven these forums.  ::)

I think the decline in genuine activity here  is actually due
to the arrival of this other new kid on the block...

If that can be considered "new".

The problem is drawing in new people. Most of us here are old hands at development, so we don't ask questions, we all answer questions instead.

There are two ways to drive traffic, bring in beginners for the old-hats to guide, or create something (or multiple new things) that require a degree of support or guidance.

Elementals 4 and a second as yet unannounced project are supposed to be those things, but I need to polish off the new sites and content for those first. Sadly both are things

I never meant for this to be a "competitor" to CF or Chump's plans, so much as a forums I planned on having all along. The "death" of the original CF just lit a fire under my arse to put something up.

I've just not had the time to sit down at the workstation to finish up said projects between trying to meet paying client needs, and the fact I've been in and out of supervised medical care on and off for two months... and then spent nearly as much time with a friend going through same.

I know how to actively promote a forums, I just need to sit down and do it. Sadly there are a few places such promotion could work, but I'm persona non grata thanks to such places being a mix between being dens of suckups and sycophants, or worse flat out supporting the dirtbag nube predators peddling their bald faced LIES.

Like the LIE that bootstrap, jQuery, vue, react, etc, etc are actually useful, or better, or whatever other propaganda based BS is being peddled.

Well that would be one explanation

I was not aware that that site had been resurrected!
If not, then that must be the fastest growing forum membership in history. :)

Resurrected being the proper word for it, as it's certainly not the "new kid". Just new management and a different domain name.

Which how/why they were able to get a complete database dump but NOT the domain seems a bit sketchy to me. Indicates some ugly goings-on behind the scenes to me... but we'll probably never know the full story of it.
