I'm reposting this from Photo Meta because it has gotten no response in over a month, and we are in a situation where other users are asking Is the Photo-SE community effectively dead? — it sure feels like we are getting the exact opposite of increased support.
I expect the same thing applies to other, non-programming sites on the network, so escalating from the site-specific meta to the central one seems appropriate.
Can we get some official responses?
It's been more than six months since this post promising
Generating revenue from non-technology sites will enable us to dedicate more resources to meeting your needs so this is good news.
... and thirteen weeks since the last update from anyone on Stack Exchange staff to What can Stack Exchange do to better build a photography community of practice here?, which was my attempt to be practical and positive rather than cynical.
On that last post in September, a Stack Exchange staff member said "Updates to come soon." Can we at least have a little update, please? I'm swinging back around to cynical on this.
