Saying "we cannot let this group die" won't help anything, because most people who aren't active here are either completely inactive on MOCpages as a whole, or have forgotten about the group, and in both cases they won't see your comment.

A couple reasons why I think people might have "stopped bothering" with THG (which I still think is pretty cool):

1. The Group Pic isn't perfectly cropped, and group pics, being the first thing a lot of people see of a group, should usually be done very carefully.

2. The title is capitalized improperly.

3. The rules say to ask admins for permission to start topics, which is ok, expect when the admins start like 50 topics anyway, which is a bit annoying.

4. There aren't enough reasons to be active in this group. Maybe a competition or something could get THG going again.

There's my 2 cents, I would gladly volunteer my ideas to get this group back on track, because I really like it and think it has lots of potential.

Well, I might as well say some stuff here.

I dunno man; I mean, if you want me to be brutally honest, the problem with this group is that it didn't rapidly expand, and sustain that expansion. You should've have aggressively recruited folks, and, most importantly, come up with ideas outside of the box. That's basically how I got the Int'l Fan of Lego Debate Club going, and its how the 50+ and 100+ groups were established.

I've seen very small groups succeed as far as activity goes. More people, while you have a higher chance of having more people active, doesn't really solve the problem of activity. You gotta look at the people you are recruiting; if they are reliable, like groups, etc. A lot of people just use groups to share some creations and then leave, and so far many people here have done just that. Also, I don't know if this group has this system already, but something I've seen working before in several groups is having a "excused absence" system, where if a person has been inactive for a while they are kicked, unless they have a good reason (vacation, homework, etc.). Just more ideas.

Realize that periods of inactivity within groups is an inherent problem with the MOCpages group system and psychology, not the group itself. Don't stress too much about it.

I ran a group about the same size once and I found cracking down and kicking inactive members and adding active ones really helped boost activity. ;)
