Re: No... not him! Don't tell me they got him too!

Would a pivot in the content TR publishes be a potential strategy? I thought the Starlink article was quite good, and I think there is a greater appetite for tech/"pop science" content compared to dedicated hardware reviews. The watercooling Vive article is also pretty unique/interesting, and I think if marketed/advertised right it could draw in fresh audiences that help reinvigorate the site. I'm assuming y'all have internal metrics to gauge the web-traffic and a get a sense of the relative popularity of those kind of articles - if so do you have a sense of how well they "performed" so to speak?

I think it's safe to say the TR will continue to increase the scope of the content it covers. That said, the only stories that generate big traffic are major launches, unless we get lucky.

Right now, the remaining part-timers and volunteers are just covering what we find interesting and trying to figure out how to get some Zen 2 hardware in Zak's hands so he has a shot at putting out a review using TuRk. No predictions yet, but it's not a gimme.

I just wanted to chip in and say I hope things work out favourably for TR. I just re-subscribed for another year, and I'm hoping this year brings good tidings.

Mozzarella must be fresh and it must be from Italy to be review worthy.

So Jeff Kampman is using using two nicks? I thought that violates forum rules.

Just noticed the other night, the "About Us" section still references a couple people (Seth, Scott) not affiliated with the current site, both in Bios and in contact emails. Might just need a quick update?

Hope you all manage to keep the lights on. It's a shame that the site did not manage to move with times and created some YT presence as the content was always very high quality, but I guess that alone does not pay the bills.

Even if it's just video without a presenter, it would bring in some additional revenue.

Actually, there is a TR channel on YT. It just doesn't have many posts.
