I hope this message finds you well. I received a check in the mail for about a hundred and forty dollars, courtesy of the class action lawsuit. I don't know how much of a role you play in Newsvine these days, but I hope there are no hard feelings between you and the community today.
I also wanted to throw a hail mary pass of sorts here. I know, that I am not the only one that thinks this, and I know you aren't necessarily the right person to contact, but I hope if you have the time, you can pass this message along, to someone who makes the decisions these days.
Please, bring the old site back, Mike. Surely update the look, and change the revenue sharing policies to keep it profitable, but the old version provided for much better engagement and discussion, and we miss that. Things like Vineacity, and the user ranking system, did much to keep me coming back everyday, and I think that many users would be thrilled to see them return.
It is entirely possibly for Newsvine to reclaim it's spot as one of the best sites on the internet, but things need to change, please consider making some changes.
Thanks, Dr. Reid
