I cannot blame the SUSD crew for this decision: I have no concept of how much work goes into each of their creative outputs nor how they rank and rate among their audience.
However… I fear that their decisions about what content they create are ever-trending towards the media outlet they most align with: Twitter. I’ve always found Twitter to be a drab, uninteresting place full of low-effort content; when there is actual content worth consuming, it is unnecessarily obstructed by the core conceits of Twitter as to make it a frustrating experience.
I realize there is a big push in online media to move towards short, ephemeral content that can engage
readers (edit: ha ha, who are we kidding) with the attention span of a goldfish… but in a hobby where entire sub-genres of that hobby can be defined as the opposite of ephemeral and short, I can’t help be begin to feel disenfranchised.
Hopefully I’m wrong.
