Any ideas how this problem could be turned around?

Additionally, that many forum users used to use Photobucket--I am one--for staging illustrations and now have no comparable resource, may also play a role.
AARs are time consuming projects, and can easily cost as much time as one uses for playing. Adding any difficulties to the forum user's task creating a good AAR can easily discourage people from even starting.

I have found them very useful when I am starting out on a game (so far only RoP and TYW, but WoS is on my list) so the effort people have been taking in writing them has been much appreciated, even if perhaps it didn't seem so much at the time.
I just wanted to add that note and say thank you to all who have taken the effort to write one.
