    I wasn't much active in the forums the past years, nor have not kept up with much regarding Unity, but I noticed that some of the users who frequented the forums for years haven't been active in the forums for a couple of years

    Maybe send them a DM, and check their signatures. Hippo has an active X account with tweets in the past hours.

    Do they? I checked their most recent activity and it doesn't look like it.

    I've been in a private conversation with @hippocoder and @Kiwasi along with some others since 2016. Both of them show up from time to time and leave a message there. Hippo's last was early 2024 and Kiwasi's was late 2023.

    Hippo moved on to other game engines (I believe Unreal Engine but he may be using Godot too) and Kiwasi I think just moved on to a new hobby.

    I've noticed the same. A lot of the older members are gone, a lot likely moved on. The forums are definitely different since. I see a lot of lower quality posts, posts in different (typically wrong) areas, and a lot of the games in the WIP are similar to each other. It's a different feeling than when I started here back 14+ years ago.

    Very valid question.
    Yet it would be wrong, or even fullish, to assume that development environment wont ever change. Such is very dynamic environment. So people comes and goes, weather we like it or not.
