My Master Plan to Save CAPS!

January 03, 2013 – Comments (27)

I remember when I first joined CAPS  when it was in beta phase back in 2006; I think TMF started with a handful of select subs and staff and then opened it up to the unwashed masses like me in their sub community and it was the greatest thing since sliced bread. It seemed like everybody loved it and was addicted to this new service in it's first year or so however even back then I didn't really buy into the community ratings premise of the service. There were complaints about the player ranking system, myself included and they probably persist today but that's not what I'm here to write about. One of my favorite aspects of the competition is keeping track of interesting players in the competition via favorites. I've noticed in recent years most of the 20 or so favorites I've added have significantly reduced their new picks and blogging in CAPS or dropped out altogether including most of the TMF staff. One favorite who hasn't is TMFDeej and I happened to mention this too him the other day posting on one of his regular blogs. His response was something like yes, it's a shame that CAPS seems to have been orphaned in TMF, it's probably because it's not generating enough revenue. TMFDeej then remarked about a potential missed opportunity for the service to be on par with Seeking Alpha's service.  [more]
