Is CC Declining?

Postby Pirlo on Sun Sep 04, 2011 8:00 pm

When I look at the number of online users, I see it's like only 60% of the number I used to find a year ago.

This indicates CC is not even stable and non-growing; rather, it's declining!

17315 are the current users. I think they used to be +20.000 last year. :-k

There is a summer lull every year. I also look at how many online when I am. Used to be 1100, recently 800 and today says 600.

I disagree. Sure while some have left, there is new blood flowing in. The 1st page is harder to get on than ever. This is a game where people can only play so long before they tire of it. With that said, CC is still fine even with a slight summer decline in people. It will start picking up again soon.

finally reconsidering your earlier statements that by like 6 months ago we would see majors on the front page again?

I'm not sure if this will have much weight, but CC moved pretty strongly in favour of established members a while ago. Paying or non-paying, The features became vastly more complicated. A culture of "extra features" kind of overcame the idea of streamlining.

Declining? No, just not growing. Whether that's a good or bad thing is a different thing.

Bad thing for the site... Maybe good for me. At least in the short term.

If the site isn't growing and only catering towards members who have been around for a while, then where will it be in 5 years? 3 years even? Not everyone will still be here. I know that I love the site and don't plan on leaving, but someday I will. Let's be real. When we all leave, who will be left? New blood is ALWAYS needed.

It would be cool to see a graph of the amount of users vs. time since the start of the site. I wonder when the biggest increase (gross increase, not percent increase) was and if the amount of users is declining and how much per year.

Wow, ok. So I used waybackmachine.com and looked at the scoreboard for the past few years and since 2008, the number of users on the Scoreboard at the beginning of September has been going down at ~1000 per year. Considering there's only around 18,000 members, that's a pretty significant number.
