As the members get older, their lives become more busier. There's probably not a lot of new members coming in that have the free time to be on here which is natural. There are also a lot of competing sites such as social and meme sites that are becoming more popular. So it probably makes sense why this site is not as active as it was.
Yeah other sites have been really changing since years ago. I'm not a fan, but A4 is really different than it once was.
