I too agree with pretty much everything Cornwall said.
I was previously a paying member for years. But the level of garbage : value has risen beyond usefulness.
And where there isn't a flood of garbage, there is just silence - what used to take hours daily to get caught up on takes a few minutes each week now. Forums that should be very useful are dormant. So either you get nothing of value, or you have to search through too much crap to get anything of value.
The community here is made up of a mix that just doesn't work. You've got those who know an awful log, but don't necessarily want to share with the peons and you've got the floods of newbies.
There is very little opportunity for the newbies to grow. I presume the overall strategy for "success" here is to create an engaging, learning environment. That's the key place where WW has failed over the last handful of years.
