[/sarcasm] The reality however is that what made TR so worthwhile is rapidly disappearing and while I can sort of live with the Site Downgrades with the occasional improvement thrown in the disappearance of the Off Topic Threads is what kept me returning all of the time. I fear that we'll end up being just another bunch of Techs who is believed that we have no interest outside of IT and will be an excuse to remove all of the Non IT subjects that TR was so famous for. While it may in the short term improve Hits to the Site it will none the less destroy the Sense of Community that is what made TR what it was and will eventually lead to it's demise.

CharlieSpencer_Palmetto January 21, 2013 at 11:24pm PST There seem to be plenty of resources to create and edit two versions of some articles - one in a single-page format, and another in the much-protested slideshow format.
