Tough to get “documentors”

For Phorum-5.2 we (or better Maurice ;)) are trying to get some more documentation for Phorum.
Maurice does a damned good job in providing developer docs together with starting it all in docbook-format
but, as usual, most developers aren’t good documentation writers and therefore the documentation is lacking a lot of content.
We were also trying to get at least for the user-documentation some users to write but got exactly 0 replies about it.
Why is it so hard to get someone to write docs which he could use for his users to explain how to use the Phorum and would help others with the same task?
How are other projects handling this? All documentation written by the developers?
I’m pretty sure that there are some admins out there who have written docs for their users but unfortunately no one is interested in contributing them :(.
