A recent post on Everything Typepad informs us that TypePad's Widget Gallery has been pulled down.
I know I'm not alone when I wonder if we're seeing the decline of TypePad. Turnaround time on help tickets now seems to be about 72 hours. It's been nearly two weeks since I sent my email to TypePad's new GM and I've not received a response - a world of difference since the days when a comment on Twitter would prompt Anil Dash to call me on the phone.
The other day I made a foray into TypePad's Advanced Templates to see if we could use them to solve a specific customer's problem. While the documentation for Advanced Templates was never great, almost all of it has been removed. Advanced templates are now pretty worthless.
All this leads me to worry that TypePad's best days are behind them.
