It looks like the amount of total SL Forums/SL Answers posts are slowly declining, according to the daily Forum Post Counts site which tracks post counts for each SL site. Perhaps we may see good growth later in the year with all the new features Linden Lab have been/yet to come features into the official Second Life Forums.
SLUniverse Forums posts are increasing each month and more members are joining every month there. Other well SL community forums seem to be going at a good steady pace. Many SL residents enjoy reading and writing feedback on lots of interesting topics.
