I can see the point to this, but unless it becomes the done thing, I don't think I'll do it. 

Nice of them to offer the opportunity to users, though.  I could see people who get a lot more traffic than I do making some helpful money that way.

It just irks me that they've been promising they were working on actual interesting things for years, but when they announce something it's ads or V-gifts.

Maybe they've lost the source code. :)

The times I've been present when a completely new team of developers took over a project, the new team usually spent the first one or even two years doing nothing but bug fixes. Maybe that's what's been going on.

I think you may be onto something here. You're absolutely right.

Of course, when I've witnessed that scenario, it's usually been due to dissatisfaction with either the previous developers or the organization providing the previous developers. Those circumstances may not apply here.

Then again, you generally don't do your best work when you know your company is up for sale, and companies going through acquisitions generally aren't allowed to spend any money. Neither one makes for code quality or rapid response. So the new developers may well have inherited something of a mess!
