First time revisiting GB since the two sites moved into the same office building a few months back. I'm toying with the idea of making this website my new "home", as I'm a little peeved (well, actually greatly peeved with the lack of initiative to really do anything about it) at their constant bone-headed "upgrades" that break more things wrong with the site than they fix or improve. The community's slowing dying off, and it seems every other day I'm seeing a new blog from a veteran saying they're leaving primarily because of the new comment system. I haven't posted regularly in their forums for some time, and I think their total revamp of their Terms of Service (although at first, it was promising) was an over-corrected reaction to the number of people complaining about the strictness of the moderation. To be honest, I'm just not much of a forum poster in general anymore.
So why do I stick with GS? I still enjoy posting user reviews, but I've noticed you can do that here as well.. Maybe I'm thinking of a weekend project where I migrate my GS user reviews here? Hmm.. maybe continue my blogs here instead and hope the community is a little more respondent to my ... musings, I guess? We'll see... Plus, my favorite reviewers Jeff and Alex are here! G.S. ... Growing Stale? Maybe... it's hard to leave a place you've called home for so many years, you know? But when "home" no longer feels welcome... why stay?
