    I used to be a very active member of this community. Just checked my profile and saw "over 6 years ago". Probably I'm the oldest member in this thread. Back then, community grew just by referrals so that made quality to be stable and under-control. It was small community, maybe 100-200 members, but it was sincere. It was like a small town, everyone knows each other.

    They inevitably removed invites because it was growing slowly. We saw many spams after that. Some people posted backlinks to make their SEO "better". These are all normal when a product is open to public but the thing is, this product used to have a different url news.layervault.com. People from layervault was quite proactive and made important improvements. Also, the old url reminds me news.ycombinator.com. It's like a twin sister of it so I liked the old one better.

    I still visit almost everyday this site. Needless to say, I couldn't find the old spirit. I think it all happened when layervault said goodbye.
