This forum seems dead. One would think with all the billions that Apple have in the bank, they could offer better support to developers. A pretty simple problem, not something hard to describe or reproduce, and yet - no answer and solution, not even an aknowledgement of the problem.
Not having correct statistics, which is almost the same as not having statistics at all, is very unprofessional. Not even mentioning the obvious question: If the statistics are not correct, are the rankings in the store "correct"? Deletions affect ranking, don't they?
The purpose of this forum is to have discussions among developers. It's not intended to report problems to Apple.
That said, the activity level on the forums does seem to be trending downward. I think that's because a lot of indy developers are getting out of the business.
