    I'd like to announce that, as of today, @CEE TEE has re-joined our staff as an admin. As of today, he is no longer affiliated with Drop and we've removed his MOT tags.

    Does this mean Drop is going to suck now?

    I'd argue that outside of @CEE TEE and the others doing actual work, it might have sucked before.

    Also, their monetization strategy of trying to cut what influencers with deep understanding of verticals could accomplish in specific areas and paste that into totally different verticals has always struck me as valley, venture funded, naive. When your business relies on having deep subject matter experts across a wide range of verticals, it's incredibly challenging to scale the business and keep a really focused product roadmap.

    They have done badass things in audio and I am going to go out on a limb and attribute that 100% to @CEE TEE.

    Edit: edited to be civil.

    In light of the above, all I'll say in this thread (hopefully) is that they've really Dropped the ball since the rebrand, and perhaps from a bit earlier on. Sorry you had to go through that, @songmic. Issues like that are why it's been a while since I've gotten anything from them and how I got so familiar with forwarding services years back to begin with. I don't begrudge them this however because it is an American company, just that the deals are attractive to international audiences as well.

    I'm somewhat less optimistic after recent changes, but hope that they continue innovating in the future with more cool products like the X00 and the ZDT Jr. stuff.

    Best of luck in future ventures, @CEE TEE! On the upside, the forum got a damn awesome admin out of it.

    Welcome back friend. Thanks again for the help with the ZDT Jr. which by the way isn’t going anywhere.

    Welcome back, @CEE TEE !

    I think you just had 85% of SBAF running to Wikipedia to interpret that.
