I believe that was one of mine. I see we've picked up an MS sponsorship. There goes the open source audience :D

Does nobody care enough this week to comment? Well, me neither... ;)

I've just gone and read a couple of the recent Top 5's and there's two things in see in common... "NickNielsen" and "Santeewelding" Haha, unsurprising, to say the least, but not unsatisfactory.

between the most popular topics and the most active posters. The latter drive the former.

the number of streams from the Hot 5 series show that not a lot of people care to watch, much less comment. This video series, which we had high hopes would have a greater appeal to a broader TR audience, might be discontinued in short order if the stream count and comments continue to be so depressingly low.

We could probably get rid of many of the videos. Unfortunately for TR, when I visit, I'm usually looking for information that I can use immediately. If I've to wait until a video loads... Well thank you for at least giving me a transcript link. M.

I'll start downloading to my ipod just so I can watch and then come back and comment! :D

All you have to do is slip a veiled, smiling insult or two into your thing. Say, questioning manhood, or something. Give it some edge. Not to everything in life do we owe hunky-dory, reverential celebration. Not even you.

I had noticed that the Hot 5 didn't generate the comment volume TROLOV did, but I didn't think the viewer volume had fallen off that much. I'll miss it if it goes; when I have the time on Friday, it helps me through that long dark teatime between lunch and quitting time. :D

I watch it every Friday; seriously. It would be depressing if Hot 5 is discontinued :(.

But I had a couple of stores go down at the same time and it took me this long to get the chance to catch up.
