So it is hard to comment on that.@Hapiel No clue where we would find an expert web developer and we unfortunately can't hire one.
And I'm pestering him on private lines we usally reserve for our super secret sex hotline and all. The idea to rewrite everything sounds like a massive work but I have no info about the condition of the current code base.
I'd personally like to see the rather pointless buddy system replaced with a real method of following other artists, a complete redesign of the front page with news sidebarred and new art greatly expanded, an integrated forum, and a reliable broken links can't be fixed (even with a new site) by anything other than a re-upload if the location they linked to got bombed, like old image hosts removing images or closing altogether. Does anyone know if a submission for the weekly challenge needs to be approved or just submitted prior to the deadline?
That said I think making a new PJ would come with more problems that fixing the old PJ.. I submitted mine, not sure how long it takes to get it approved. I personally hate the likes of Twitter, Facebook, etc for the reasons you've mentioned and definetly see value to Pixel Joint's existence.
Now I really like web communties, the way that I've got to "know" all of you would be impossible on twitter for example.
But can a web community platform like this still exist in the future, or is it alright when the future has pixel artists spread out over various platforms?

A functionality to make following artists possible and a better front page layout would definitely carry PJ to a new level.
Since then I've acquired a lot of leadership and management experience (had a team of 55 people working for me at one time).
PJs value for me has always been the forum inspiration from the gallery.
