First off, I think the Q&A's are still very cool and I enjoy reading Adam's answers.
Agreed. One of the upsides a site like this could have had, would be opportunities to directly interact with the cast and creators somewhat often, yet this rarely happens. Ultimately it remains to be just as non-personal as a subreddit would be, yet lacks the accessibility.
That's pretty on point from my perspective. It feels there is not enough benefit to justify the extra effort of visiting here (I know it sounds dumb when we're jjust talking about visiting and engaging with a website).
Also now, user input and engagement is split between three sites: this one, Reddit and the comments over at Patreon, which also contributes to the feeling of thinned out activity I guess (oh, and Discord I guess, not sure whether to count that).
And a tree structure for posts in threads beats linear post structure, in my opinion. It's just easier to keep track of discussions that way.
