And there is more I think. When the IRTC restarted, TC-RTC suffered a 
bit from people turning back to the old familiar grounds, but it seems 
that the real interest in these kind of competitions/challenges has 
dwindled as the IRTC too suffered in the end from a lack of uploads, 
especially compared to the heydays of the competition. And many of the 
strong artists from those days have disappeared over the last five to 
ten years. Other interests? Other challenges?
