||As a veteran, I occasionally visit the forums, though I stopped active TopCoder participation several months ago. I generally keep silent and just see what's going on, however I feel I have to say something after reading your response here.
You have been saying you take all CAB input very seriously, repeatedly, by many different [topcoder] admins, but the truth is, we as members have never seen... From the website revamp, TCO track rearrangement, dev track finals cancellation, to DR program cancellation. Do you seriously think there is effective communication between admin and members? It's not even communication IMHO! At first, I proactively tried to communicate, hoping admins would listen and act - at least give reasonable answers/updates - however what I saw was always "we're in progress doing ABC", "we're considering DEF", "you're more than welcome to suggest XYZ". Then I'm totally frustrated and disappointed, then I left.
