I guess we’re a bunch of nerdy introverted musicians here at Stagelight...
The Stagelight community was made on the fly to be the direct replacement for google+ and a forum for us to hear everyone out.
As you can tell it has been quiet. We had a very busy 2018 with the release of Stagelight 3.5, 3.6, and 4. We felt it was necessary to go back into the next development cycle and focus on what is next.
Think of it like an artist in the studio working on their next album release and you don’t really hear from them until they get it right. We’re definitely still here just with our heads down at the moment focusing on the tasks at hand. Dedicated to making something remarkably great.
I am not a developer, however so I do the marketing and it has been really quiet there. Maybe some app marketing teams are tons of peeps but here it’s just me... AND I had a personal injury that has made it impossible to produce new videos/social content. Holding a camera and editing isn’t very easy in a sling. I am giving myself the proper time for recovery and it’s very liberating to take a break.
The team is working hard though. We’re just not going to share anything new yet as far as the product goes until further notice BUT we are still here to support you. We always welcome feedback and ideas. Already we have lots of notes and problems from you all and will be here developing them into solutions. It will be worth the wait.

Haha I noticed this as well, but I must admit I haven't been the most active member either. Oh well, life happens... Also, I think many members of the Google+ page didn't anticipate the platform's shutdown, causing them to fall behind so to speak. Marketing this forum more intensively could bring them back. Then again, I understand the team is busy with other tasks as well, like Travis mentions (wishing you a speedy recovery!).
As current members, we can be a helping hand by spreading word about this forum on our own channels too! I'll see what I can do regarding this.
@rickvanmeijel I just had the same kind of afterthought. As members, if we were to be more active, well, it would be a more active community - simple. After all, there's 282 members at the moment, so let's be active while the team is working 😉
