True, Shame we can't get mailing list statistics to see amount of activity there is on that list.

I could help with that. Also we could recruit new mods from the community by an explicit call if we need them.

Or devs could do it themselves and answer directly just focusing on that part of the forum, while mods keep it clean and sorted for fitness.

If you say to a sample maker "add this to the master branch" you are gonna confuse and scare him. Do it for him, as you know how, and he can keep focusing on sounds, not Github, Sourceforge or whatnot.

Everything is geared towards developing and thus anyone who doesn't do programming is cut off. I made an account for bug report on SF but it is not a forum for me in spite of it being called a forum here. Why would a non-programmer make an account on sourceforge? That makes no sense and if the activity is low, this is why. Most of the users are just that, users. Some of us could make free loops, fan art and otherwise contribute to the community. This way we can do nothing to help you guys.
