The org redesign is a big issue and has been for years. I agree that it's state needs to be answered. This site is dying but has big potential. Just say "we can not fix the org within the next two years, it's not possible". In a second step how about "we want to fix it but don't know how because...". Now there are two options. Leave the org as it is, do minor updates and try to keep it on life support for another 2-3 years until you have to shut down local uploads due to unsufficient funds. Or create a new org, a separate site to ultimately relieve the org once it's up and running. Maybe give it a new aim - amateur video editing, so pwolf and others can also enter their none anime Videos. You know - A deviant Art for Video Art, based on what made the org great. People would have to reenter their old entries to new this site - everything - but we would know if people like it before shutting down the org. And we could still keep the forum. If we can't fix the org, we should relaunch it. Imho there is still a place for anime video art.
