I agree that these issues are rampant, I've personally recognized that I engage with dev.to less and less this week. Even as a writer, I try and write more intermediate articles and target them change the settings to say that they're targetted at a specific level of Audience etc and it's clear to see that engagment on those topics falls off.

In terms of solutions though, I don't know if dev.to could've specifically done anything to prevent things getting to this point. I think it's just a reality of our field that juniors (fresh out of bootcamp) just outnumber senios (> 15 years experience) by 100-to-1 at the very least (if not more).

So yea, just the base realities of the market need to be considered and maybe from there we can figure out a solution.
