This forum won't die if the amount of activity drops off. In fact, it might help things. A lot of the time I forget to reply because posts sink to the bottom of forum pages quick-smart. I know what you're saying (seriously, the point isn't lost on me), but I'm not sold on the idea of activity being the reason (or a strong reason) for forum success. This forum has grown because of the quality of information, (Dexterity originally) and the quality of the people involved.
