DC taking drastic measures?

I heard that DCYOU wasn't doing so well but yeesh! To sum up it's speculated that DC might cut it's losses by reducing page rates, more ads, canceling titles (this was a given) and more of a focus on trades. Which could be bad for certain writers that don't want to write 6 issue arcs for trades. Creators were also told to stop "Batgirling" so many titles which is great but I mainly want them to undo what happened to Starfire. It also looks like Jim Lees' claim that canon matters more than continuity might not be the case anymore. I really don't want BE to have anymore focus outside the series so this could really suck.

Aspects of these stories have also been confirmed by ex-DC editor Heidi MacDonald, who added her own take, regarding co-publisher Dan Didio, saying “the tone of the DC You books was definitely not his decision. However I’ve heard from multiple sources that with the “NĂ¼ Look DC” failing to excite retailers and readers, DiDio’s way is making a comeback. It’s still early on all this—although some of the ideas I’ve heard being floated around are shocking—so it’s too soon to tell if this means a return to a tightly interwoven overarching continuity or just a return to DC’s house style.”
