It seems that with so many other social media outlets, a lot of established forums are seeing drastic changes in the numbers of active posters, the numbers of topics posted in specific intervals, the numbers of replies a topic averages.It's not just SG; although SG's other issues are probably making it more obvious to the members who are here on a regular basis. I believe it's cyclical, and that established, well known communities will see an equal resurgence in popularity in time. I think it's really just human nature to occasionally take a break from routine, and many new sites crop up that are shiny and exciting. Some of the new places will thrive, and we'll see their influence in various ways; including losing a few members to them. But in time, many of those will also fail, and we'll see the influx of newcomers looking for a "home" when they do.At the end of the day, I don't see any of it as a cause for concern.

If you see something that you think the mod/admin team should see (after all, you may have seen it before we have! ), please report it. And be sure to tell us what you think or why you are reporting it. I can't promise that we'll necessarily do something about that particular post, but it's all "grist for the mill," and helps us try to keep SG happy and healthy in the long term. Thanks for your help!Lisa
