Well they cleared out their games review staff a while back.
There is no longer any "official" games discussion topics, no more staff whipping up interest. The game's staff used to post some nice articles that kept people discussing topics and coming up with ideas. They interacted with board members a lot and generally kept things busy.
I know for myself I dont come here anywhere near as much since they took away that. Seriously who wants to read just fanboy raves and nerd rages
