I hope so. That is what this message was designed to do. IE: Stir up

I am not sure what groups are exactly active though even through IRC.
Most things seem to have just stopped. I hope I am wrong, but from what
I have heard from others that is just not the case.

that not much is happening.

It always has. Hence theforums existence. It is a way for all members to
express their views irrespective of time zone etc.
