Is it just me or ..?

Hi,

I have not been active on this forum these last 7/8 years maybe …

Back in the day, I remember the boiling forum of content, you could make a living just by staying here ..
SEMrush

I wish to be active again on the webmasters communities. My favorite forums today have all disappeared. What all freelancers have bought and destroyed, and even other forums ..

DP seems to be the last forum in place .. But after spending a few days here, I just discovered that I'm sending MPs and that I'm talking to people who started discussions there are more and more. a year! I felt like an idiot …

These discussions are at the top of each category …

Then I discovered that you can not add new topics unless you are a premium member.

So I wonder if it kills this forum? Do not get me wrong, if you make more money this way, so much the better for you, but is it the right long term approach? There are no new offers and content in some forum categories, it seems deserted …

I mean that happens even in the discussion areas. I mean one of the main page topics because "trends" is this one.

A guy asked for advice to choose a brand 7 years ago! people are responding right now …

So yes … I admit it's been awhile since I have not been active; so i have no idea what happened .. but the forum is dying in my opinion ..

Let me know what you think!
Thank you
