Is this entire forum dead? I have been going through sections, and there nearly all topics/threads are old with no replies. There’s no information on here. Is there an actual art or artist forum that is actually useful?

Circa daily 2-3 new posts are around (sometimes a bit more), but the "good" habit of people; the doing a new topic for nearly every posts. And these posts mostly contains informations which do not generate too much responses, so they sinking like a piece of rock. And on the top of them coming again a 1-2 posts topic, also determined to sink. This is how became 99% of the topicks dead.
Probably shold make a topic (again a new one??) for general discussion, where most of the ideas, questions, informations could be posted independently from their subjects. Probably would be a bit chaotic, but much more lively... And of course most people still would post their one time post in a specially made new topic. That's how thinks working in and age when the FB is the etalon and most people don't have a clue how a classic forum suppose to work. :vs_laugh:

Most art forums are dead these days.
This one is no exception.

Most art forums are dead these days.
This one is no exception.

Most FORUMS are dead these days partly because they're out of fashion and (mostly) because long-form, community oriented discussion is not popular, but check out Pinterest and Facebook et al and there's plenty of activity.

The busiest forums these days are Gaming forums, where there's a lot of exchange of information and tactics, along with a lot of 'smack' talk of course. But, they have a very strong community. Maybe that's something to keep in mind - here's hoping that the forum isn't dead.
