Perhaps most Apple II users are hardware tinkerers who design their stuff privately, barely sharing the news with others in sporadic posts on Applefritter or otherwise dead Usenet groups? Oh, you mentioned Facebook, I have never looked for them there.
Anyway, I think TI-99/4A users may feel a stronger relation with Atari 2600 gamers and all the other ones, so they don't really mind gather here at AA, while possibly Apple people wouldn't touch a retro gaming site like this with a pitchfork.
Commodore has always been big about gaming though, but there are several specialist sites like Lemon64, Denial, EAB and lots of others for those enthusiasts to hang around at. I understand one of the major reasons why Albert set up sub-sections for Commodore 8-bit and 16-bit was that many of the mentioned sites are very Euro-centric, while AA is very America-centric so it felt like there was a lack of a place for US/Canadian Commodore people to gather at.
