Forums in general are dying. This is still one of the most active forums that I'm in. I don't think it's the banners. Forums have died because old members became friends on FB or Instagram or other social media and follow each other there. FB has also become a great source of information, and people don't use the forums anymore even to post questions. I've noticed that some people hang around a forum while they have puppies, and then disappear when their dog grows up.
It's a shame, because for me personally, as I've been a member of a few different forums in the last 11 years that I have my dog, it's about following other members' dogs' life, their adventures, seeing their pictures, and even pulling for them when they get sick. Sometimes I wonder what happened to some dogs, what they look like now as seniors if they are still alive.
