My forum died because there wasn't enough controversy, as brian suggested, but the knife in the back was lack of numbers - we never achieved critical mass.

On reflection I'm probably the worst person to offer any advice in this area - I was the guy who said Kindles were never going to take off, and that self-publishing would always be the poor cousin to getting a book deal (though I still believe the latter).

One question - how easy would it be to migrate the whole site to a different server? It wouldn't improve membership but would give back some control to those trying to keep the place alive.

Maybe the time of the forum is over. Maybe us old fuddy-duddies are just sticking with what's comfortable and ignoring the other avenues where younger and more savvy writers hang out, and maybe there is no way to restore the beat to it's former glory.
