Hi, I have noticed that the same problem is with other similar sites, even if the rules what to post are not so strong. Francesco Scaringi closes his site New Photoland. At the beginning there were many photos and photographers, but now the movement is slow and the cost of maintaining the site too high. The same is with Photopholia. On the same site I see the photos of the same photographer - it means that only a few photos are posted in a day. It is a small "private" site and for many hours no one looks at the photos.It is discouraging.
Probably the lack of time is the reason. To write interesting critiques, notes, to choose a good photo, to read what the other people write - to do all of it is so time consuming. Who has time for it? On the other hand, such sites with no rules, like Flickr or Facebook have many users and pictures. But they are completely different.

Kind regards Malgo
