Very much tongue-in-cheek and to get the plea onto the iSpot front page, I created a project titled "iSPOT ADMIN - please keep us informed" with a request in the description politely expanding on that.
I guess the site admins have seen this as the project appears to have been removed: I expected as much so no problem there. I'm disappointed that my plea doesn't seem to have been acted on: there is still silence from those in charge of the site about what they are doing to rectify all the reported bugs (Tony Rebelo has recorded over 500 of them) and to return the functionality that has been missing since the introduction of the new site.
Perhaps worse is that I've not received any notification of the project's removal. No explanation of why they've done it, no telling off for having the temerity to ask the question publically, nothing.
All I - and, as far as I can tell, a lot of other iSpotters - want is to be kept up to date with what's happening. iSpot Admins: please keep us informed!
