1. This forum isn't nearly as popular as it was in the era of the D1. I think its simply because of the influx of other android sites (it also doesn't help that the site name implies it is only for Droid branded phones) and specifically only serves Verizon phones for the most part.
2. Many devs have migrated to Rootzwiki and thus have taken the traffic with them. Even XDA has slowed from what it used to be.
3. Some who did frequent this forum (and specifically this section) moved to a different phone because of the many at-launch issues some were having.
