To me, it hasn't felt like their hearts have been in this for some time. I don't much care for what they're doing these days because of that and I kind of mentally checked out around the time of the Tested poster. I don't like that it feels as though the Community is only important when they need money and suggestions are met with a weird "Yeah yeah okay." attitude. They go on trips and complain (yes I get that it's not a vacation, but maybe keep it to yourself? It's a tad disrespectful to your hard-working audience.) Endurance Runs should be done once a year in my opinion. If there are no games in summer, why not make that the ED time? Maybe have a quick little show and tell on Mondays for cool stuff developers send you where each dude brings in one thing to show everyone. That's a cool perk I would love to share with people if it were me. Anyway, after 4 months I'm very surprised they're not, "Settled." Whether you pay for a sub to support them or for content, they advertise it as paying for content. They're not delivering, and that's not okay.
As a Cartoonist, I came here and loved the living toons that were the guys. Dave was awesome enough to bring me on to work with them and integrate that artistic aspect of my life with this site and I had a great time. There's a lot I really wanted to do and pitch to them but never got the chance. The life force seems to have been drained from this place somehow, unfortunately. I hope they find that awesome spirit they once had. :)
