Tell me how to make this website better!

This website was started about three years ago to create a community for people who like America's Best Dance Crew and hip hop dance -- whether as observers or as participants.  The goal was to create a vibrant place by sharing examples of amazing work, getting people talking to each other, and making it fun.  

I think we've been somewhat successful, but over the past year some events may have changed the dynamic here, including 1. debates during ABDC Season 6 about ICONic Boyz, and
2. increased participation of Koopa, Ninjaboi, and others resulting in more posts per day and  broader dance coverage.  This site still has lots of readers, but the number of comments and level of debate is really down, and I'm not sure why.

I want to know what we can do to improve. And, I want to know if we are missing opportunities -- or the boat. So, please leave a comment and tell us what you like and don't like here. Comment on anything important to you -- some topics that have been suggested include: do we need more content or less? are we covering the right things? how can we get you to participate more? is it wrong to mix ABDC and hip hop dance? Does the site's name drive away potential readers? And, if you have friends who have stopped reading, please ask them to stop by and leave a comment on why they left. If you think it's better to be anonymous, that's fine. Thanks for your thoughts.
