I'm checking in for the first time in months and I find the message boards to be so much more relatable and encouraging than the app. Feeling like you really connect with people and getting communication that isn't an emoji, for me at least, is more meaningful and it is frustrating that fewer people are using them.

This was discussed elsewhere. Some conclusions were:

Most new members use the app and don't even bother to come to the message boards.
They are more interested in "liking" a post than contributing to the conversation.
They prefer to post memes than post actual questions/comments/etc.

i think many people use the feed now instead of the forums. i am also a forum fan!

Healthy choices and actions have positive impacts, even if the scale doesn't move!

I agree! I've noticed a lot of forums and topics have gone silent or little to no activity emoticon

Just curious. I used to visit this forum to read and post on some quite interesting threads. I don't see much activity at all and wondering why.

I miss it here. Hope this forum becomes more active again.
