61. I love the new format. Have since you rolled it out, so thank you. BUT something I have noticed,

Dec 2023

which makes me wonder if an improvement you made is shooting yourself in the foot.

I LOVE the "rec post" feature, and I find myself using it a lot. But that means I am no longer replying to posts with "+1" or "k and r."

Is it possible that the "rec post" feature reduces the total number of posts on the site? And does that impact your ad revenue?

I don't know how it works and this many not be a factor, but if it is I don't want you getting less money because you did such a great update.
