Cheathappens membership is still growing, its over ten times what it was when I joined, I think. Maybe the board activity is just more evenly spread and less noticeable to those who cruise the social boards?
forums aren't cool anymore. people come here for the trainers, not for the community.
im afraid we will never see the energy of the 'old days' on these boards again. these message boards have seen their prime and passed it by.
not just the trainers...but its the community too which made it fun here..Nic/FFQueen with her RPG game OTDs and Dhampy with his drunken posts etc. made it really fun. now its a bit quiet here. maybe things will pick after a while.

tis ashame that you feel that way. i had hoped that by now the general anti-newb mindset of veteran members would have mostly faded away since we dont get many new members on the forums these days.
i wouldn't worry too much about being 'intrusive'. everyone here generally appreciates anyone's input on a discussion regardless of their join date.
take Dhampy as a good example...well not a good example but an example nonetheless. as a newbie he dove into the forums face-first(mainly because he was drunk) and now he's like family to all the us vet members here...yuh kno, like the creepy uncle that always smells like scotch and beef jerky
