I'm sad to say, but I fear that this is a lost project. It's aim'ed towards the right direction, but without any development, it will die off. There are already many forums out there that are doing pretty well now. Xenforo, vBulletin 5.0 (finally), Invision Power Board (IPB), Discourse.
No active development or at least something per week will give hope, but not many people care for projects that are actively being developed one year, then down for some more years, then try to make a comeback a few more later. It just doesn't work that way, but with that said, good luck, but its failed with no contributors, no active support with an exception of very few people here.
Thanks for the feedback @trev. Fortunately, esoTalk is still being actively developed! It is being sponsored by Xojo, Inc. who are using it for their support forum. Development has been slow in the past month because I have had exams, but expect it to pick up in the next couple of weeks.
Beyond this sponsorship, new infrastructure, documentation, and a redesigned brand is in the works. It is a slow process for just one person, but I believe once I can get it over the line and release a stable version, the community and product will flourish.
