Thanks for your response Jennifer. I know that there were some other (minor) changes made. It just feels like there needs to be more done. Forum activity/traffic would appear to be at an all time low. There used to be loads of activity on a daily basis. It can go days now without a single comment.
Without naming names, there are rival eLearning products that provide a vastly superior forum / community. Lectora (the product) and this forum are beginning to fall behind.
