possibly dying, or just at a record-setting low for traffic. Honestly, I haven't seen anybody significant lately beyond you two and Hirato, with Tyche loyally monitoring daily. Leo was supposed to be making a comeback some time ago, but it appears he's forgotten about it. Haven't seen Arcones or any other support teamers as well. I'll check in maybe every other day but I don't post usually because I'm unable to properly answer any questions, due to the various significant changes made in the last 3 updates. I haven't even seen Mike in a while as well, which is sad - I don't know what his plans are for Sandbox, other than hopefully continuing its advancement as a child-friendly game engine. I believe that Water Wars was poorly received, and so he's removed it in the latest "School" Edition.

Not necessarily, I think Hirato might still be working on it, he's branched it out into a standalone personal project called "Lamiae" (https://github.com/hirato/lamiae
In general, yes, Sandbox may be dying, but I don't think Mike will just let it die... maybe there will be a development hiatus until he can figure out what he wants to happen in the future and if he can find more people able to contribute to the program.
On another note, I feel like a lot of former members who aren't caught up with stuff IRL and are still developing have likely moved to other game engines, such as Unity or Torque3D.
