Has the community left Teamwork?

Not sure if this will get answered in the following days and/or week but as an avid hunter and all around nerd, I've suddenly noticed a major decline in the use of hunting parties here on Teamwork. I know for certain that it's because many folks are burnt out of 4U and have wandered elsewhere, but I find it kinda sad if that is the case...

Where are the times where new hunters and old could gather together and make progress--for good or for bad? Where are the timeless requests for people just to help others grind for a bit, as a way to waste the day away? Where is the great community I admired in this declining time and age?

Sure, I understand most people have already achieved G-rank and beyond, and sure--not many hunters want to start over within any of the MH titles...but to see this site where people could get together and make contact as fellow hunters/friends suddenly just be empty saddens me greatly

So to any of those who stumble across this: have we left Teamwork behind? Or are we just casually waiting for another reason to use this awesome site?

I'll throw my penny in this wishing well.

What I've seen going on in this site is that most people left during the 3U-to-4 Transition. Not even during the 4U era. That's when most of the people just fell out.
I'm in the Facebook group, and there's a lot of activity of people joining/requesting hunts there. No one ever promoted this site while I was there. Maybe I should have said something, but me against 1000+ people... I'm definitely going to get drowned out.

For reasons that people popped out of here. Speculations and random guesses here.
1) Transition from Wii U to 3DS - Most people seem to only get one of these two choices. With the unfavorable handheld style for the Western audience, it's bound to happen (I guess).
2) Lack of publicity - The MH Podcast has always been the one way that most people seemed to be informed about this website. They watch the show, they know about this site. But I guess TWC people have been busy to promote it, so it's up to the minor group who knows about this.
3) [[There was one more, but I forgot]]

In short, no idea. Facebook.
Facebook, Facebook, Facebook (maybe)

I myself tried posting hunts for MH4U, Mario Kart, Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes, Smash Bros. But nothing happened. Only the ones I talk to the most, whom I have on Skype, will join me. That's about it.
So, take this as however you value it. I'm answering with my toes here.

Gear_LockYeah. From what I've seen and from your analysis, I can safely say that FB/business has played a big factor in the way this website is used now. Unless the cast can find a way to inform people again, this convenient organizer is going to stay dormant for quite a while
