That would go under "not enough members to make it worth their while to keep it running in top form" Could be, I haven't a clue as to what they are up to these days. I just see the result.
There are plenty of members, and plenty of visitors. There are not enough subscribers...
The thing is, an OD subscriber doesn't gain much from a subscription. I don't see a point in subscribing, specially since I know the service is none better than the service I get with just an OD subscription. I don't really care for the extra premium blinds given to WC subscribers, even if I did, I can't trust that I'd ever get even close to the amount promised.
Also, most people don't want to pay for broken service. Stardock has a history of being bad with keeping promises, so saying "buy a subscription, and we'll make it better" is not something I believe in.
The site need to be in top form to gain more members. There's no reason to start hanging out on a poorly managed site.
I do think we're in for something better with the promised changes. I don't hold any expectations on when it's going to be released though.
... Don't read this post TOO literally, I'm a bit unfocused at the moment, and I have a feeling this may be a bit fragmented to say the least. I do love this community, it's absolutely marvellous, but it's not without its problems.
