Yes, there are a few of us who check in occasionally.
This forum started off and was picking up members fairly easily. Then it was spammed almost into non-existence. Porn and all sorts of rubbish was appearing regularly and it put most members off using the group.
The owner, Rob, eventually sorted it all out and it has been clear of spam since.
So I guess it's down to more users returning and new members such as yourself joining in.
Grauw used to be on this newsgroup a lot (the clever user who wrote the free editor program),and now he often posts on the Facebook group, which appears to get a lot more use.
Although, this site seems better for posting patches and sound files.
Hopefully, this site will become popular again; personally I dislike the Facebook style of interface.
