    What is true is that many more Diaries are being written, at the moment, on a much wider variety of subjects.

    Many are being written for "niche interest" Groups and that is where they are going.

    But that has introduced me to stuff I wouldn't have seen, and the Rec List and Recently Recc'd list, and the Community Spotlight are filled with good quality writing on subjects we are all familiar with.

    There is just MORE of it.

    It's been five days ....

    I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
    but I fear we will remain Democrats.

      it's just more.  While some people have all day to be on a website, most of us do not.

      volume and replaced it with velocity which can work both ways...

      one of my group members Man Eegee had the top rec list diary for a day and a half and there were only 2700 views..........

      plus there is more clicking and scrolling to the point of annoyance...I just tried 3 times to post a reply with a pic and finally just gave up....and that was after giving up control and letting the site load whatever the heck it wanted....I'll try again after more caffeine............

          the first couple times no pics would show in preview, then the third time I hit the backspace and the browser went back which seems to happen occasionally now but never did before......

          and i'm getting tennis elbow from the scroll wheel.....

          I like it, it has possibilities but the learning curve is much higher than a lot of people want to deal with, most just come here to read, not all the rest...

          I do have faith the bugs will get worked out but I'm still not convinced on the design itself.....

          I'm going to ck back a month or so and see what kind of page views a rec list diary had.....

            ck out Jotter's stats, in the last year we lost a thousand active Kogs even though it held fairly steady between the last election and the last year stats

              but I take your point.

              I would expect a pretty large fall off from a massive peak right before Obama was elected. Folk were enthsiastic beyond reason.

              Again I would expect a much smaller peake before the mid-terms, and the numbers should start climbing as the General approaches.

              Kos has put a lot of money into the upgrade, and it might be a gamble, but I'm pretty sure he has not been short of offers, and hasn't sold it yet.

              We were seeing a fairly consistent 150+ Diaries most days before the switch.

              I dunno .... I could be completely wrong, but I do think that the info available on this site will be better quality and easier to find once the change settles down.

              I hope so anyway.

              I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
              but I fear we will remain Democrats.
