I've always lurked on places like reddit or here more than I've posted but tbh I come here rarely now. There is hardly anything worth reading when I do check, so I get laxer and laxer in terms of checking in.
The one thing that used to bring me in and was likely to get me involved were the post show threads. But with the move towards US focused live slots for everything, I'm at least a day or two late for them as an EU viewer. At which point it feels like I'm unlikely to get an answer to any questions I have, and I've missed the immediate wave of chatter, so it feels like a waste of my time trying to get involved.
I would also agree with others that the split between live chat, discord, here and reddit won't help, nor does the divide between "patron at X tier" and "non patron/lower tier patron" when it comes to people wanting to talk about stuff. Like the thread adam started about his CoS micro game, if you aren't at the zine tier, it feels much harder to get involved in chat about a project like that
