I think the community on reddit is more active, it's a fairly small subreddit, but when I visit this place like once a week or so there are always a bunch of new topics (probably a couple of new threads daily). The topics are often about minor or random things (like people asking for episodes etc.), but every now and then there are interesting/insightful posts and topics that attract a good number of comments as well (or at least attract more reaction than they would probably get here).
Despite that, I think for long and ongoing discussions classic forums like this one seem more suitable, because on reddit and other newer platforms threads get lost/"disappear" in the feed very quickly.
I always thought dctp, especially the Story Discussion section, is the best international (meaning English-speaking) forum or at least way better than the DC Wiki forum. Back in the day I used to lurk this place to read theories and such. I just signed up recently, because I too thought this place deserves more activity (and because I lost track of DC for some time and just picked it up again recently).

Totally agree with that. Hopefully there are better times ahead when it comes to the release schedule. I guess this forum will be livelier if the content delivers and people feel like the BO plot is seriously moving forward.
