It’s a shame. Cirsova has been a member almost since I started. It’s got me a lot of friends and connections within the RPG blogging community and has benefited the site in ways that mere click thrus can’t quantify.
While we’ll always have the Dyvers Great Blog Roll Call, it’s still not quite the same.
I’m on a ton of feeds just because I’m a member, even if those clicks don’t count as click thrus from the RPGBA.org site. Being there has certainly upped my search ranking.
And it’s always nice to get an ‘at a glance’ look at who’s blogging about what, especially given the variance of blogging platforms. There are a lot of Blogger blogs that I can’t “follow” on wordpress, and they’re not necessarily blogs that I read regularly, but every once in awhile, it’s good to see what’s going on.
It’s awful that all of that is going away, but what’s one to do?
