Well, recently there was movement, ioi has given control to other people. I heard that there is work on a new UI that should be more mobile friendly.
From memory ioi was into expensive fancy cars, chances are that's where all the site profits (if any) have gone towards and that's why we're left with a decaying website (I'm just throwing hypotheticals). But let's not forget half the website was actually built by the users so the least he could do is fix the mess up, which you say is happening. *fingers crossed*
I've also noticed the numbers have been slipping very far behind. We used to come before NPD, not after.
Wow - another 'old school' user has shown up!! LOL!!!!
I only recently came back from the dead myself... ...and yes, it's TRUE!! There is a responsive re-design already underway (some of the major sections of the website have already been converted!!), and TruckOSaurus is the guy responsible!
Meanwhile, I've been busy resurrecting the REAL game database back to the way it used to be - and it won't be long now before that's up and running once again, too!
...yup - you picked a damn good time to decide to show up. ;)
