Euphoria seems to be a language which is easy and powerful at the same time.

It is! What other languages do you use? We're always looking for help on the language itself and our other related projects.

Why then it is not more popular?

I would say Euphoria peaked in popularity around 2000-2005. Here's breakdown of messages by year. There were more than ten times as many messages in 2004 as there were in 2019.

I think it should also be on https://stackoverflow.com/ where many programmers go for solutions and discussions.

Eh. We're a pretty small community so breaking out to other forums would probably be counter-productive at this point. We do have an active-ish #euphoria channel on Freenode.

I've considered using Discord and Reddit as well (both very popular for developer communities) but right now I think this forum is the best place for us.
