Welcome over here...
It's true, that the listserver's death has partly been caused by the heavier traffic on forums like over at Rebelscum (Ours doesn't get as much traffic right now, but that should/could change sometime).
The problem with the forum format though, is that most people are giving one or two lines as a "critique" which is utterly bogus if you ask me.
"Wow, that's great" does not constitute a critique, so even the old timers like me and a few others who hit the forums are a bit disinterested in some of what others have to say sometimes.
Hopefully when stuff's posted (including your own) we'll get some good solid critiquing as well as complementing! The forums just are a breeding ground for the "passer-by" though so the one-liners are inevitable I guess.
Not us die-hards though! We're all about tearing stuff down and building it back up... Constructively of course.
