Not really that strange, internet message boards have been massively in decline over the last 10 years, all communication and discussion for festivals like this is done over facebook, twitter etc. The early 2000s were the peak time for message boards, since social media has taken off, no one bothers with them anymore.
Up until a couple of years ago this board was still very busy, which I'd say was unusual for a message board; it's just when they did that board change over a few years ago, it really killed any traffic there previously was.
