Seen that these message boards are still quite active , I'm curious why so many people still play it in 2019 when there is a newer gen , ultra sun/moon already out?

Because they're different games. While there's no doubt that Generation VII is far more active, there are a plethora of reasons why someone might play an older title, such as: not owning the newer game, wanting to complete X/Y, the player's Friends are also playing Generation VI, better multiplayer features, etc.
Why bother making a signature?

For some it may be preferences.. Like traditional gyms over trials, mega evolution over Z moves, PSS over Festival Plaza.

You can get Hidden Abilities in Gen 7 through SOS Chaining.

People love the games. The real question is why wouldn't someone play XY/ORAS in 2019?
