Is the forum on a downturn

I was thinking the same. The post from someone complaining that their photos had disappeared but hadn't been on the site for months made me wonder why people actually use the gallery.
I'd always thought that people used them so they could show off or discuss their work in the forums (I don't mean show off in the pejorative term), but if people aren't doing that perhaps they are just using it as a holding store or a place to link to on other websites that don't have a gallery?
I didn't use the gallery on the Photoradar site much as I thought it was not very user-friendly and prefer to host my pics on my own server which means I only have to post them once and can show them on a number of websites.
Whilst I have started to use the gallery here, I still find it clunky and the way it all works doesn't encourage me to want to use it much.
As to whether the forum is on a downturn, it's an age-old problem, there will always be a small group regular users, increasing that group is a problem.
