Sdlbasic itself is still around even if the forum is gone. It does seem like every retro programming community is slowly dying. Not just sdlbasic but all of our projects live or die with there communties. I only have 2 active members left on rcbasic's forum so my project is slowly coming to an end as well.

2 members? Wow. I have one. But it doesn't matter - as long as you continue to enjoy updating and supporting your project, it will never end.

You're right. I don't think sdlBasic is quite through yet either. SdlBasic is what got me back into programming about 6 or 7 years ago. I actually still use it to benchmark features that I add to my project. And as far as I know, it is the only Basic dialect that has been ported to a game console since yabasic on the ps2. So cheers sdlBasic.

interested for BASIC, i also doubt that young people interested for programming
in general..so what to say more?

While looking for "the real" SdlBasic forum, I stumbled upon this:
https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/sldbasic/index.php

Apparently new owners of a temporary SdlBasic forum from past that has screwed up my avatar and dates.
