There are a number of reasons why Volunteers give up their time, machines and pay high electricity prices in order to support your project. Some project managers spend a lot of time in maintaining the project and communicating with their user database. Unfortunately, there are some who do not appear to care about their users and fail to advise them of what is going on.

Yes this ia the biggest problem this project has had from its launch.
Your volunteers feel let down and isolated when there is no feedback.
Could you not devote a couple hours per month to reading the message boards and making some honest replies?
You can tell us as it is - dont just keep posting "we're updating it, we got Wonderful New Stuff Coming, its all teriffic" which is all we've heard for seven years now.
The good news is that we are taking active steps to improve the project at the moment [...]
Yes see you told us this almost two YEARS ago in your last-but-one message.
More updates to follow.
In 2017, perhaps?
Let me thank you for your patience and for your continued involvement in C@H.

You are asking questions which were already answered. You are here, with this accountname, because you've received the answer.
Don't get me wrong, i agree to some of your points. How would I be able to do not?
But I don't think, that this kind of discussion will lead to somewhere.
What do you expect?
I expect a improved project application, a project description which makes repeating explanations unnecessary (and helps people to get behind the purpose of C@H without googling for hours), some bugfixes and maybe, sometimes, hints on publications which were elaborated with the use of PICO.
I have the hope, that this will all really happen in near future. Not because of something Ben has written here, just because of knowing that C@H serve a purpose and the fact that one of the biggest design problems of the project will be fixed in some weeks.
Its name is "Atlantic".
Until that, i just don't crunch very much for C@H. Works well for me.
Edit: Fixed typo. And sorry for my bad english.
