I haven't been paying attentions to statics for quite a while. However, as generally speaking, many forums are getting quiet, as well as many blog etc. The trend is moving to something more interactive and more social I guess, something like Twitter or Facebook.
As for the quietness of this forum, well, this forum is not optimised for tablet nor smart phone devices. I fully understand that certain member might loathe those devices due to the market of those devices being dominated by a non-Redmond company (however, the love/hate situation will change once the Redmond company releases its killing device).
Perhaps, there are more interesting iOS games that people like to spend time on playing those (instead of logging into the forums), or wants instant updates such as Twitter or Facebook, or perhaps people like Don
is watching the London 2012 game on super-high definition TV cheering for American's big win.
