Subject: DK lost a subscriber!

Last night his subscriber count was 32,588 now this morning it is at 32,587.

There are so many reasons but what do you think?
Too much over expansion?
Hiring too many hockey people?
Rude comments on the comments section?
Overly negative Pirates coverage?

I know of several who jumped in for yearly subscriptions who never renewed after year one when renewals came due the past few months. I wonder if the number he gives is ACTIVELY SUBSCRIBED or just the total sold over the years regardless of renewal status. You can't pick fights with your customers and expect renewals.

He's deliberately vague about what this number means, and sometimes talks as if it's active, but it's the total sold to date. In fact I'm pretty sure his math is so borked that he does things like count "lunatics" as 3, and more importantly counts renewals as new subs. My guess is his actual active users are somewhere between 10-12k, MAYBE 15k, based on the average comment numbers and pageviews on his posts.

How does one see the comment count and page views?

They had more faith than I did to go for the year commitment. I signed up in the first weeks for either the 1 month or 3 month subscription (can't remember) and never renewed. I only read it for about a week too. I gave it a try out on the claim of lots of "insider info". But I never found much and any rare tidbit they did have ended up on Twitter from subscribers in no time.

Hey, this reminds me of Trib Total Media constantly telling us how the Pittsburgh Trib was "the fastest growing newspaper in America." You should market your gift of spin for the world. Could be lucrative!

Do you get a "reward" from DK every time you flack for him over here? Just wondering.

So I put up a message when DK had his meet and greet giving them a compliment about their meet and greet gathering. But added a little snarky comment about why their social media lady had to include those idiotic dog snapchat filters in one of the pics of her and Yohe. Message got deleted.

If they keep deleting my comments, bye bye to DK.

That social media girl, and the one before her, are flippin train wrecks the way they treat customers. Even some of DK's other staff are embarrassed by them.

And honestly, what value does she add? Is it really necessary to have a staff member to retweet the writers' tweeted articles?

Totally immaturity which seems to be a problem with todays youth. There is no place in a business trying to be reputable respectable and professional to use "hoe filters" from snapchat,instagram and make writers who have worked extremely hard to gain respect in their field to look childish and immature and unprofessional which is exactly what DKs site is turning into.
