A Question to the Comm

We are getting ready to roll out some MAJOR changes to the comm starting January first. This will include changes to the schedule of days, to the way contests are run, as well as some other suggestions made by the comm to make finding what they want easier.

However, as we have been prepping these changes behind the scenes, we've been noticing a large drop off in comments...and even more so in comments that are actual fic, and not just prompts.

This begs the question, is it worth putting in the time and effort required to restructure, including recruiting and training new volunteers, or has the comm run it's course?
