Personally, I don't view it any differently now than I did before. I've only been here for about a year, so I don't know where my own participation is headed, or if my interest will stay high, regardless of who is in any leadership position.
What I do know, is that it's a great forum with lots of great posters, and is largely responsible for me wanting to progress as a skier. And not knowing many folks here personally, I see many who contribute as much publicly (in my view) as Tricia and Phil do/did. That's not meant to slight them at all, but most of the threads I've read or participated in would have been great without them around here.
I think it's heartening in a way that so many folks are upset by the change, because I like there there're real friendships and community built here. But the quality of the forum and tone and sense of community doesn't have to change if people don't want it to in my opinion. I appreciate folks who are asking others to stay patient and not assume the worst, as I don't think I see "the worst" coming or am at least willing to wait to see what does come.
