Your conclusion to the thread was a very comprehensive one, and I agree with all you have said.
One thing I would like to add is that the numbers of posted photos might drop, but they are still too many for me to review :-))
What should be remembered is that there are also a lot of WS posted, either as a try to improve originals, or as additional photos. And there are the re-post which are not used very often, but still an option.
TE might have slowed down, due most probably to the emergence of many other sites, but so far, I have read nobody saying that they found better anywhere, especially where the comprehensive side is concerned :
-- Technical, photographic skills.
-- Learning about the world through photography.
-- Interaction within an international community of friends, through Internet or in reality.
