There's a few of us regulars who still post here, such as myself, egg82, kiwi-kiwi, Dean, Thegluestickman, pirateplatypus, VigilanteNighthawk, and a few others whom I am no doubt forgetting, but for the most part it seems like this forum, and the NG BBS as a whole, have died or is dying. Can't really say I know why; I haven't the faintest clue.
It's a shame, but it happens.
However I only frequent this and the Flash forum, so perhaps the rest of the BBS is actually going strong and I'm just oblivious.
The "Programming Regs Lounge" thread is pretty active, so at least there's that.
