I am also a new member and am disappointed about the Writers Block. But don't get depressed. Assume that old group had been there a while and are ready to move on. Maybe the Writer's Block needs som new blood. There's you and me, for example. Maybe there are others out there.
I would be glad to give you my humble opinion at a couple of your chapters. I have finished one novel and am working on another. Hope you might like to reciprocate. (My writing is presented on my website, listed on my profile.) By the way, I live in Norway actually know few "Svens". Bring it on.
