The title is self explanatory.

The community has experienced increasing inactivity through the years. With factors like deviantart being a more hostile and unwelcoming place (somewhere to post art) to time constraints, there's just not a lot of draw to the community.

I would consider the community near-dead. Though Fractalforums.com was a huge success, many people I've talked to consider Fractalforums.org to be more or less an empty desert. Most people are intrigued by the artistic appeal and mathematical amazements fractals present, but it's becoming increasingly uncommon to see one become active in the community.

Still, this doesn't mean that we can't try. The Fractal Foundation is one of the driving forces behind this, along with the Fractal Institute. Both are trying to increase awareness about fractals and just how amazing they are. "See these pictures?" a fractal enthusiast might say, "You can make these on your computer at home!" Hopefully, these efforts will help revitalize the community in some way -- but until then, we can consider the community to be largely stagnant.
