As I remember the last forum was super active even during 2019. Was it due to COVID? Or as most members were srk fans, they were waiting for his comeback?

We didn't close the forum. In '21, old forum was archived and people were redirected to the new forum(itsboxoffice.com) , as the old one's database was bloated asf. It was difficult to manage and server requirements were unnecessarily high as a result. 

The new forum, just, didn't click with the existing users.

And, The new forum was active until 3 weeks ago when I decided to bring the old platform back - minus the old database.

It has nothing to do with SRK, I could have easily brought it back before the extended weekend, if that was the case. I just had free space in my server for forum so I thought of bringing it back.

I would also use the other one, but that has too much in it and wouldn't be as easy as this one for users. I replied in there once it twice but no one cared
Congrats to zin for reopening the forum. My advice to you - stricter moderation than the previous forum  . Since the activity is less nowadays, no need to appoint mods. Allow stupidity but dont allow hostile and abusive behaviour. .
Reward good activity. Make a weekly reward post, declaring -post of the week and answer of the week? With some Bonus points .
and also  we need some anti srk posts immediately ;)
