The almost complete lack of explanatory technical articles, the posts from the sandbox errors in the headers, zaplakannye pseudo-comments, non-thematic positions, the crowd "news" articles — no, this never happened before. Maybe I'm wrong, and there is no decline here, but now, going on Habr, rarely find something really useful/entertaining. Look at the article at the moment, the best 24 hours, best for the week. Unless there is something ina fit (lie, something is), valuable? I have already expressed the opinion that UFO sees everything (on it and UFO), and for good reason eviscerates the sandbox.
Frankly, I don't know exactly where the problem is. Maybe it's a "cyclic" decline. Maybe blame the time of year — and just a lack of free time (version looks quite plausible, given the fact that the same stagnation was observed shortly before the beginning of 2011). Meanwhile, the functionality of the website expands, and rewards authors will not go away (but the fruit, so I understand, is not given); however, the extinction is occasionally recorded and the population.
What can you suggest in this situation?
