Thank you for your insights. I have tons of respect for you guys, even though it might not seem like it. I'm much more inexperienced in both growing a community and managing a community – that's why I asked if you had any updates. I find the knowledge shared in this thread valuable to me.Branching out old forums to new audiences is basically growing a new forum almost and even simply "existing" is a challenge nowadays, by the way the "old farts" have a bit of experience gained through many errors and difficulties, no one is trying to show off but to help and discuss maybe with people with new opinions strategies etc.
Grazie for your time once more.
