100%. It’s magical thinking to be coding up massive changes to a site that isn’t actively attracting new users. I’d much rather see time and energy go towards recruiting awesome people to the site. I used to check Hubski every single day at least a dozen times. Now I check once Every other day. Because I know I’m not missing anything. That’s fine. But I don’t think the site is suffering from functionality but rather a lack of people.
Also, fwiw. I too miss ‘spoons and pabs. I still occasionally post to #songsforpabs in the hopes that I am sharing music with my old pal.
