Hi Rob...I think they are gone, for all practical purposes. This thing, and Active bass as well, are truly on autopilot. Pretty amazing really.
Did you read their thesis that was the basis for these two sites? More amazing yet. I will send it to you if ya don't have it.
It was a purely sociological study, about self-maintenance sites and the level of participation in each. Also about the ability of members to engage in self-censorship, which as anyone can see, has worked very well.
The most interesting aspect of the thesis to me, by the etonal guys, was their measuring level of participation between this site and AB, by making lessons harder, (intentionally) to post here, vs. easier there, and the fact that the result was vastly in favor of the more user-friendly AB format. resulting in much larger and more friendly participation. Quite an eye-opener.
None of this is to say that these guys don't very infrequently stop by, to look in on their creation, like a demented God checking on earth once in a while, hehe.
