Over the past eight months, it seems the site has been flooded with lots of stories on three major topics. They are:
I appreciate those stories and they help make this site great. I wish it could go back to the old way. Where it was about more hard news about China.
Ryan, you and I have discussed it a bit in passing, but I really hope there can be a site-wide solution. Maybe move those types of stories to a different area for people who are more interested in food, language, or travel.
Even looking on the main page, there seems to be a dearth of those types of stories! So are we left to assume that those types of stories are flooding the NEW page(?) and preventing other stories having a chance of evening being looked at? Even the time from submission to time promoted has slowed down.
Suggestions? Will anyone other than Ryan read this? Doubtful. Most people just want to post post post post and drive clicks to their site.
