Would DN be better as 'invite-only' again?

    Smaller communities have better content. It's been proven by Dribbble while in its beginning, and DN while in its beginning. Being invite-only or not does not address the issue. Once you've gone over a certain limit, things go downhill from there and there's no way of going back, at least, in practice.

      For most things there is a "tipping point", but I think much of that has to do with scale and how to accommodate it. Reddit is an example that has scaled well... perhaps it's because it has many niche channels?

      I don't think that's a good thing here... but just saying that just because DN hits a particular size, it doesn't mean it's inevitable that the quality will degrade.
