I already created few account at dm and most of the time forgot the password and never log in again. It feels overcrowded and not personalised.

Right now all major Os already have their own specific forum and minor os still out of commercial sight.

There is really nothing much you can do and it will only get worse as the symbian community keep shrinking. A forum need a good balance of geek users and active ordinary users to maintain active forum activities but now all are geek users only and occasionally a new users posting and never return.

How much it cost you are a year to maintain the forum with all the domain names included?

$57 at the bare minimum if I remember correctly, we got hosting discount.

Although at this point it is mostly only the hardcore die-hard power users who are still on Symbian devices, there are also more than a few users of older devices who simply can't afford new ones or got those devices seond-hand.
Also, there is very little advertising for these sites outside of mentions on other Symbian websites (like AAS), so unless a person catches a post on a Nokia discussions board referencing a site like this before a moderator catches it and deletes the post, they may never know about these resources (because apparently, even here in 2014, people still don't ever use Google ::)).

Frankly, in my opinion (for whatever that's worth), i just can't understand why people aren't leaving DMF and resuming the community here.
The new DM is very heavy and user-unfriendly (with intrusive and excessive advertising), and they seem to be desperate for an iOS crowd which doesn't want to use that forum.
Only the Symbian community is active there, but the attitude toward Symbian is just like Microsoft's.

By the way, MS killed another one of our apps: IR is now only manually configurable =oP

I have often wondered that, DMF is no longer Symbian friendly, I still remember the massive arguments that used to erupt there on Symbian vs Android.

This site has no advertising at all, the place is pretty organised and we welcome Symbian users with open arms.

Well, looks like this part of the forum isn't.

Everything but User Interaction (I actually forgot about it) but I'll leave it open. And PM's will stay enabled.
