Have a spare $100K lying around to redesign DDMS, DDF, add some new features, and get an app going?
Let's get a kickstarter going.
I'd def give to this before paying for some shmoe to fly in the Residence

I'm not convinced the ROI of a $100K investment to modernize the site will be that compelling.
I didn't say of your increased revenue :P
And I agree, I think it would be an awful investment
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

That 100k for an app can become another 10k avid followers... investment.
You think the only thing holding back 10K avid followers is an app? That does what exactly other than have build in notifications that people get setup via Twitter?

I think ddf looks and functions perfectly fine.
Maybe add the ability to tag someone but that don't cost much.
You can always pay someone to add functions here and there.

The main site looks quite terrible though, and I don't think it should cost anything near 100k to redesign.
Live forever or die trying.

I wouldn't think so either. Your readers seem to be mainly from one segment of the population, and there's not much competition for that segment. I don't see there being enough new readers because the site looks more modern and interactive to justify the investment necessary. There isn't a major contest for the flashiest site at the moment. The site is perfectly functional, and is pretty easy to use and navigate. It could definitely be improved, but I certainly wouldn't call it dysfunctional or a pressing need that demands a solution.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Just a DDMS redesign wouldn't cost that much, but once I was hiring someone I'd probably better integrate DDF, an app, and some other ideas that would push the cost up.

Is the telegram group yours? Just curious.

Frankly, all it takes to integrate ddf and DDMS is a tab on the main site instead of a link.
Maybe change up the color scheme of ddf to match the redesign.

I don't see a purpose for an app though.
Just to read DDMS posts? DDF too?

No idea. I don't have telegram. I heard they just retweet all your deals, basically.

Because I'm out of the loop and don't have it?
What's the advantage of it over Twitter?

It's a broadcast and it has every deal you post
