My presence on different forums alternates between 'totally dead' and 'extremely active'. I've been very active here the last few months after being barely present for about a year. That's in part because the place was dying and because new people are coming in. Also, I'm making some effort to actually check for new threads instead of only going off of notifications, because notifications are broken and I've turned them all off now.
-Also because my friends are all getting into Minecraft now, we have many servers, and they need technical advice and seed/build suggestions from here, but that's not why I *post*, that's just reading and watching videos sent here.
When I think about it, there's no one forum that I've been continuously active on since joining. I always disappear for a few weeks up to a few months before coming back, IF I come back and don't just delete my account. In the case of my second-oldest forum, I haven't been more than a ghost's shadow in YEARS, like I went silent in 2017 and since 2020 have posted about once a month. Versus where I had made 5-10 posts every single day in 2013.
Personally I use a lot of forums, I love it it's interesting.
I used to be present on a number of forums which I only lurk today (if even that), this is pretty much the only one I'm consistently present and active on anymore, although I do use the related products for places I no longer speak in much. Forums are a great communicaton tool but they can be dangerously addictive due to the sheer number of respondents and threads, and sometimes they manage to out-toxic social media and chatrooms. (Also, I'm not always all that interested in the topics).
If anyone's curious about whether they have other forums in common with me, I can sauce you a list of some I used to be more present on.
I jump on every so often for the Legacy Fabric/Cursed Fabric posts but otherwise just the odd threads I find interesting and more on to other things (other forums, games and so on) and then come back again.
I mean I make wikis for mods these days that's the most related to the game besides this forum that I do now besides mod news on that forum.
