We listened to your comments on how to improve the site [ha!]and took much of it on-board [double ha!]. We hope the changes we’ll be making will move authonomy in the right direction.
Then it got to the stage where you needed 60-70 backings to move up one place; it took a year to struggle to the top five; no one ever got a contract for their efforts; a lot of people got sickened by the brawling on the forum. Members left.
In my opinion, HC is now bringing in some of the measures we begged for over a year ago because the site is in serious decline; falling numbers means falling revenue. It's all about money.
