There's some quality stuff being posted here from time to time.
But yeah, it's kind of a bad timing for forums in general. Attracting new community members right now usually means attracting a new generation of community members.
People who haven't stuck around with close-knit forum-based communities for a couple of years now tend to be more accustomed to subreddits, facebook groups and, gods forbid, youtube comment sections.
It's not entirely a bad change per se. Nowadays people have to juggle with forums, social media, reddit, youtube and discord; online communities are kinda all over the place instead of being consolidated on a single platform.
