 I do not agree. As you could see here in the thread there are others who
 do not agree with the way things are right now after the event of Popular
 Tags removal.

 It's just an UI issue, so it should be easily fixed. Please take due time
 to consider that many developers with 100 active installs are at the
 moment discouraged to keep their work alive because not enough people use
 what they've created.

 As someone mentioned above: these people are great developers. They can't
 be great marketing magicians as well who know what keywords they should
 place to be found via keyword search. they also don't know how to gain
 more downloads. They think that by building something great people would
 use it.

 And that story was true during the Popular Tags period. Find a way to
 bring them back.
