PBase is dying. I am not talking about the 4 hours black out. I am talking about months of repeated failures - which do not bother be too much by themselves. I am talking about the number of visits that has - as a consequence of the poor performances I guess - has dropped significantly. My first crappy images were getting twice or three times more attention than my current images. Web statistics sites also show a significant erosion of PBase visitor numbers.
The site has gone through rough times in the past - for example the painful "Great Shot Vote" period, but maybe I am feeling worn out, maybe the community is worn out, but I don't feel like posting if it is not to get some views. Why would I be posting if not for VIEWS.
I am also thinking to the PBase employees, who have not been reacting as needed... or simply can't help. The minimum that they owed us was to explain. The never did. No or very little new features in 3 years either. I am sorry for them. They are going to need to adjust to a smaller renewal rate.
