So you removed the multi-author panel thingy (the best aspect of the roundup) because they cost too much?
Seriously, why do that? I'm sure there's at least some indies around here that wouldn't mind being on that panel on a rotating basis.
Also, I've only ever went there for the roundups, and having went there from the link in the other post earlier and looked around, I can see why. The site seriously needs a redesign.
