I'd like to see it brought back, so everyone can see the project status.
Talk of having an "enormous" platform, or the "Amazon of social media" isn't based on reality, and it could take years just to get to 100K members. Perhaps I'm wrong, and I'd love to be.
It's weird, because on one hand, the team is saying they want to publish people's NRVE payments because transparency, transparency, transparency, but on the other hand, that same team is removing key pieces of data that reflect the momentum and success of the project.
If the team was really about transparency, it seems logical that they would never bury that membership number --they would make it freely available for everyone to see at all times.
