At first, I was worried that the community was dead or dying and it's obviously not. Hope to help it grow.
Someone looking at activity on the Forum might assume there's a lack of life. The real strength here, though, is in the exchange of feedback and the interaction between writers about their stories. There's a huge amount going on beyond the Forum, and we welcome your desire to help it grow.

No, the forums aren't dying. They're officially dead in a month or so! Should have joined sooner stupid!
You know you have to be kind to win friends and influence people. Poor Denver just stepped off the bus for goodness sakes! Give him five minutes to catch his breath before he learns the internet is no place to be yourself.
Trump being elected just proved your words wrong. I don't think you understand what it means to influence people. And you surely don't need to be kind to do it. History is a never-ending lesson in unkind people with great influence. It's been nearly two weeks since he posted this topic. That is not 'just off the bus'.
If you can't handle some barb-less joshing, then the internet is not the place for you.
