if you care enough, you know where the information is
In standard journalistic/editing practice, when someone has a potential conflict of interest, they say it clearly at the bottom of the article. For example, "I received this product free" or "I own shares in one of the companies I wrote about".
The current verbiage of the PT-Slitherine relationship is intentionally obscured. A new reader who was not around at the time of the ownership change would probably remain unaware and the hope is probably that most don't care enough to try and make a connection.

Ok. So therefore, they are your boss.
mobile gaming is not my primary platform
If you truly want to service the readers of this web site, you should consider delegating the editor position to someone else who does care more about mobile gaming.
The amount of content here has actually increased. But I no longer come here regularly (hence the slightly delayed reply) mainly because of the attitude of the current editor. The tone has pretty much been "I acknowledge your opinion, but I'm doing it this way, take it or leave it." That is definitely his right, but people remember how they are treated.
EICJOE strikes me as someone who perhaps is good at the technical aspects of the editing job, and probably has good intentions, but poor people skills/tact. Perhaps people haven't said much because they are just not coming back or choosing not to participate any more.
