So, has the user base increased, decreased or sort of stayed the same over the past few years?

Asked by XOIIO (18243points) 1 month ago

Been a while since I was on, I think I popped on briefly on 2015 or 2016 after a long break but forgot about the site again, hoping not to do that again.

I see that spam questions are still going strong, but I was wondering how the overall activity in the site has been, if it’s gotten busier, or dwindled a bit.

I honestly can’t remember how I found fluther, so I’m also curious how newer members managed to find the site. I doubt we put ads about it up anywhere or anything like that.

Also, man I miss the formatting style here when I go on other sites, I still instinctively try to do stuff that doesn’t work lol.

Also what happened to the sarcastic redirect when you tried to thank yourself/give yourself a gq or ga? That was always entertaining.

Welcome back! Some people left. It’s kind of slow these days, but you may blame it on Christmas :P

And yeah, I understand the last part. This place is like a home now. You just can’t get it out of your system completely.

I’d say decreased and changed. Not for the better.

It’s as base as it’s always been.

Without doubt, dwindling. I like the system here but I think we need more innovation and changes to make more people to join us.

The numbers have declined as has the quality. What a great site could be made with all those who have left over the years.
