Okay, not in the huge sense, or we'd be here all day ...
What I'm wondering is, what are we getting from the site, these days? Does it still provide what people need?
I guess the answer would have to be different for the two major user groups we have, the SPS guys, and everyone else.
The SPS forum continues to be active, particularly for a small number (fewer than a dozen, say) of regular contributors. The opinions differ somewhat, as in any conversation, but the forum itself at least appears to provide its participants with what they want.
However, it's unclear whether the forum is doing what it was intended to do, which was to support people through their struggles with a mental illness or at least something like a mental illness. The majority seem to feel that their situation is entirely physical and that any psychological effects on them are due to the actions of others. While we can support people who are in pain, our real goal has always been to help them change in ways that reduce that pain. If, instead, our support helps maintain them in their inaction, we may actually be doing them a disservice.
The situation for "everyone else" is even more problematic. We get little traffic, any more, for any other forums. Those regulars who do not identify as SPS sufferers still end up conversing mainly in the SPS forum. There is little mental health anything going on elsewhere on the site.
It's quite possible that, had I not been absent, I might have been able to change that situation, but I don't know. It does concern me, though, because it brings the question of purpose into fairly stark focus. Are we doing anyone any favors keeping the site open, and how do I feel about my role in that?
