This is purely my opinion.

MAMEDEV would love to get some positivity and even simple thanks for efforts mean a lot. Many places where release announcements are posted, replies often end up reading like
"Nice but what about xxxxx", always moving a target to another machine or option which has either never worked in MAME or doesn't work to peoples' satisfaction. That type of exchange can quickly become discouraging for a purely volunteer effort public project.

Also, the overall number of emulator users who actually care about the stuff MAME emulates is growing older and losing interest. Many younger folks nowadays largely are stuck on phones/tablets and while use MAME in limited capacity through other emulators/front-ends, they can never enjoy MAME for all its offerings and range in scope. Preference seems to go to emulators which deal with emulating more modern devices and consoles. Let's face it, too, traditional forums are dying off.

I could add more but my feelings wouldn't translate too well to text - so I'll leave it here.
