I didn't misunderstand or overlook anything. Most of them were incredibly vocal about their dislikes of this site and pissed off that the old site they loved was sold. My point was and still is... none of them paid for it and/or bought the old site, none of them did anything but bitch and complain. So, do you expect Robert to cater to the whole 10 people or do we continue on and attract people who aren't whiners and may add something constructive to this site? Robert told them he would change things and they still left. Oh well, there are plenty of fish in the sea, and apparently other places they liked better. All the power to them.
I'm having a hard time understanding why you care about a bunch of people who jumped ship. They didn't like it, they left.
Again, there are billions of people out there in the ether who could potentially replace them and may be more inclined to join the site and like it more than a bunch of cry babies who didn't get their way. This site is what YOU make it.
Just like nobody can make YOU happy, YOU have to do it for yourself.
