Whole time I saw a forum die was because the "core" members were talking with themselves, ignoring regular members and making hard to join in their circle to feel confortable and talk with them.
A Forum is a community, every member should be important for the "core" (even the trolls, if you can handle them -they should have a limit line, if they break it, the will be banned). Also the "core" have to hear everything than their community says (even insults) everything is important to improve the experience of the forum and generate a big and active community.
I doesn't is about "people goes bored about X game, and leaves the forum who talks about that game". There are a lot of communities actives, that talks about everything, their main topic stills, but it doesn't really matters, you can talk about everything without problem. In Spain, the main example is forocoches.com. Is a forum to talk about cars but, the 90% of the community talks about everything, making the member experience confortable.
That happens with Neopets is that TNT doesn't give a fuck about their community, if community claims events, why they don't give them events? If the website is repetitive as hell, why don't you hear the community claims?
And yes, as always, my apologies for your bleeding eyes reading that.
