Well Thomas certainly seems to be trying, I remember when he was staunchly against advertising, and lo, ads are on the site now. But I see what you're saying, there are so many sites out there that are inclusive rather than exclusive it's much less of a headache to just join them. What's more is elfwood is exclusive in a weird nitpicky way, not in a way that most passersby actually care about in a site.

I don't even think the details are very important. Whether the moderators relax the rules a little bit and accept non-fantasy, or whether they demand more quality (like Epilogue), it may shift the userbase a little bit. But ultimatively, it's just not the time for art sites any more.

Just like once there were mailing lists and the usenet, but now people mostly use web forums for that kind of communication. There used to be a time when everyone had three homepages for his family and his cat; now people have blogs instead.

That's not to say art sites couldn't become fashionable again. In fact, I hope they do :)
