I browse by new posts and I regularly have it extending into page two, often page 3

I did some back of napkin math out of curiosity and it's actually more like 12 posts a day. Y'all need to stop being so friendly, funny, and interesting.
But how, when you're such an interesting person yourself:grin:?

I wonder how much of this is the Storygame vs. RPG thread. It began just at the end of January and by the end of February had racked up almost 2,000 replies.

Its certainly some of it but the forum overall is busier. A couple of days ago just before midnight ET I was on and the threads that been had replied to that day was about halfway on the second page in the main forum (almost 30 threads). That’s never happened before.

Extrapolating by fitting it to an exponential curve then by August 2021 it will account for all human communication.
Are the mods ready for that kind of responsibility?

The Pub is #6 on their list of top RPG forums...although they refer to it as the “Hub” in the description.

I suspect we'll climb the ladder farther as time goes on. Sadly, increasing numbers tend to increase the problems and that will probably require further adaptation.

16 posts a day? I can't imagine how easy that would be to moderate.

I have no idea where they get that from. We’ve never been that low.

As nice as it sounds I find it hard to take too seriously as EnWorld doesn't even rank on the top 15 and I'm pretty sure it's #1 or #2 in actual traffic.

Actually they have a separate list for RPG influencers and enWorld is #2 I believe. I believe our list is just strictly for forums. Until I start selling shirts, then the Pub will influence fashion trends and we’ll be on the other list.

I updated March numbers. After a week, we are on pace for another record month.

Similar Web has these rankings (a sampling of sites). Their RPG category includes a lot more than tabletop though.

enWorld 17
RPG.net 22
RPG PUB 172
Dragonsfoot 196
BasicRoleplaying 442
TheRPGSite 456

If I practice my duck face and that gesture with the two fingers can I be an influencer too?

I'll pay you if you don't.

(Actually, with Facetune and Photoshop, I think Jabba the Hutt could be an influencer in 2021.)
I can see it now! For five dollars you can get full access to my erotic Gurps Manual reviews. For ten dollars you can access my naked "Let's reads" of new rpg supplements.

I wonder if I can do a kickstarter along the lines of "Back me for $1 million or I'll do this."
