Not Too Active Huh?

So, I just noticed that many of the "Latest Posts" are around 2015-2016, with some going back to 2012 (and before)!

That's because Lisp isn't very wide spread used as lets say Python. Also "Lisp" is fragmented in several dialects too.
I for myself use Racket and Common Lisp for side projects now and seeked only in the beginning for help in forums. That settled a bit and I think I'm not alone with it.

Happy coding!

Like the Algol community isn't fragmented.. Pascal, Java, C#, C, C++, Python, Ruby, Perl, PHP, JavaScript.. I haven't seem them unite but focus on their own dialect. Kind of like the Lisp community.

The main difference is that the algol community is much larger than the lisp community and it seems like there are more lisp action on Stack Overflow than in this forum.

This forum looks like it was really lively, lots of posts and replies, between 2010-2015 and then suddenly it just drops off; some of the "Most Active Posts" and "Most Recent" are from 2015 !!

I always seem to come to these things late. :(

Well, I have an 80+ member group on Facebook that is specifically for ZIL so we have a nice base but its always great to have a forum like this to communicate with the non-Facebook folk. :)
