This board is a bit slow?

Please don't take it the wrong way. I know that these states aren't heavily populated but my take on Denver is that it's a food town and there's about 2.5 million people. i visit this board from time to time and see a post here and there and not much action. What's going on??
There aren't a lot of users on Chowhound in the area. I only knew about Chowhound because I used to live in Chicago. Most people I've talked to around here have never even heard of it. From what I understand most people here use Westword or Yelp as their go-to.
I personally have only lived in CO a little over a year, and I live out in the middle of nowhere about 30 miles from downtown and up until recently worked down south. I've only visited a handful of restaurants in the downtown area (where most people seem to want recommendations for), so I'm kind of useless in that department.
I also think it would behoove people to search past posts. That's one thing I've noticed about Denver, the top destinations don't really change, so a thread might be a year+ old, but the information in it is still pretty relevant.
I will second some of what juliejulez wrote. Things don't change much. Please look for past threads.
I will also point out that this isn't the "Colorado/Denver" board, altho it often feels like it. We in the Rockies are in a comparative food wasteland, but this board includes other states. For better or worse.
Been back in Bozeman on holidays for a week now.....great city & area, love it here! As HTC says, it is a bit of a food wasteland. We`ve been mostly preparing our dinners & eating very well with some great local sources of quality ingredients . We, fortunately, stay at a hotel where we have cooking facilities.
Drove to Big Sky yesterday & browsed the farmer`s market. Bought some wonderful bread & pastries from Sinclair`s Bakery. Big Hint: check out Mark`s baked goods, he`s the "real deal"!!
