People join the Asian arowana/monster fish hobby, people leave, people take a break. So there is a lot of natural turn over of hobbyists. Throw in changing social media preferences - especially the rise of FB and decline of BBS (Bulletin Board System) forums, and well, you end up with few posts. One interesting thing is that the number of "lurkers" - people who check in and view/read threads but do not post, is quite high. We seem to have around 300-500 people who monitor this site or check in weekly to see what is happening, especially in terms of buy/sell.

My guess is the site has gone global on some level. There is a fairly deep knowledge base on the site in past threads, relatively well organized by section/sub-section. For people new to the hobby - anywhere in the world - there is a lot to learn here.
