I agree whole heartedly with your comments regarding this forum and Australian Photography.
Current participation is very low at present and has declined even further since the closure was announced. Rejuvination and a fresh approach is required to ensure continued success of my favoured forum that being DigitalSLR.
I will give some thought to your request for ideas to increase and encourage activity and post my ideas here soon.

I think something is needed. Many of us, me included, discovered Ausphotography when the demise of this site was announced. The site wasn't extremely busy before then and certainly seems lower since the closure announcement.
I'm sure we are all polygamous when it comes to forum reading, so I don't see any reason why we can't invite forum members at say Ausphotography to come and look in on this forum. Kiwi did a great job getting us to look at Ausphotography, maybe he (or someone else who hs been an active member there for a while) could post a topic inviting people to look in on DigitalSLR.
Anyway, just a few quick thoughts for consideration

I have spoken to many photographers about this site and you know what, they have never heard of us, what about puting up some info sheets in camera stores, studio lighting shops, picture framing shops, camera clubs, photographic magazines. No one will join us if they don't know we exist....
I know some of these ideas will cost a dollar or two, but maybe a small donation from enough people will cover this.
We gotta spread the word and the word is digitalSLR.com.au

maybe some themed challenges? A while ago when Sir T put up the Glamour comp there was some activity, I dont' think the prizes were the motivation though, just some direction and a challenge.
