Drop in traffic to webmaster forums?

It has been some time since I have visited various webmaster forums. When I dropped by some of the ones I use to visit, I noticed there are a lot less people now than use to hang out.

I am not talking just about v7n. It seems across the board there are fewer people on webmaster forums.

Warrior forum has changed their design, and it stinks. Digital point seems to be a fraction of what it use to be... etc.

Are fewer people building websites these days? Or is something else going on?

In my opinion, forums had the purpose of helping people share knowledge and find common interests. Nowadays, there are social networks which serve that purpose, so it is only natural that there are fewer people on forums. I don't think this has anything to do with design.

One reason: wannabe SEO's spamming up good forums with junk for post count to get signatures.

The good people leave because they couldn't watch all the good threads go down the tube. No intelligent conversation can be had without the spam brigade gumming up a good thread with junk for post count.

Sad, but true.
