I will try, Bob, seeing as how I started the poll in the first place.  Not a 'demise' in the sense of no longer existing, but in the sense of... well, here's an example.  The Great Dane is the only person to have posted on Life Today thread, at the time of writing, since 31 May - which means there is a single daily post on that thread by one user.  Isn't that a change from (say) 2009?

It is probably futile. I'm trying to post to the general chat but there is hardly any signs of life. I guess it was a temporary fad ... Huh  
The only things that survives is the songname "shared word" game undecided

Noooowwwww - don't go blaming it all on him!  We're all to blame.  Such is the way with forums - it ebbs and flows.  Original users ebb out while newbies flow in. It changes things.  Simples.

If you have to prod people to get them to chat, then I think it's best left alone. If you have something to say that you think the forum might like to read, then post it - otherwise just let things happen, or not happen, as the case may be.  
 
I belong to a number of real-time chat sites, and sometimes the activity dies for a while. that happens. However I find nothing more boring than the people who come on and complain about how boring the chat is.  
 
In my case, I don't post much these days except for the SWG because I really don't have much left to say that I haven't said already, either about the band or about other music, or any other topic. If someone started a discussion that I was interested in, I would respond, but that hasn't happened for some time.  
 
The constant spam is also getting to me. When I log on and see a heap of spam subject headings, some of which are several days old, it gives the impression that the site is not being looked after and I lose the incentive to participate. The Yes forum is many times larger than this one, yet I never see spam there, meaning it's being dealt with somehow, and promptly. (The Yes forum has its own problems, but that's another story.)
