I’m grateful for all of you, and your continued companionship, advice, and dangerous, wallet-busting enabling. Many happy returns.

Happy to throw some money into the pot to keep the lights on. I’ve been needing some new shirts.

We are also open to suggestions of other potential funding sources as we move forward and the need for funding increases.
How about a fundraising raffle or something like that?

I'll volunteer to fly anyone (in the continental US) to San Antonio to go to a local show. Hotel and food is on them (unless they won't murder me in my sleep). Drinks are also on me. Winning personality is all their responsibility though.

Don't give @Mather any ideas of how to get more people visit his murder dungeon arcade

I’m curious whether the forum software allows for any customization during the account creation process?

Just wondering where/how new people are continuing to find us. It’s not like there’s advertising, or a product to sell, or all that much evangelism for the community. But there’s still a steady trickle of people signing up. Are they just stumbling across us when they do a Google search for something related to a record? Via Instagram? Word of mouth?

In general, are there metrics about the number of active users per month? Unregistered guests versus registered accounts? Are the site runners generally happy with our current growth/attrition rates? Do our numbers indicate anything about the health/longevity of the community?

Just some things I’m always curious to hear about, no agenda.

I have zero insight into the interpretation of the below statistics, but wanted to share anyway.

And breaking down February 2021 to show the nuances of the above averages

Specifically what kind of customization are you curious about?

Maybe @RenegadeMonster could help fill in the blanks on this one, if possible.

Oh I just meant like adding a question to ask how they heard about the site. I assume that the time when people were looking for the old forum and getting punted over here is long over by now, and the numbers look fairly consistent over time, so I take that to mean the site is doing something right; do we know what that is?

For myself, I saw the forum mentioned on Reddit a couple/few times and was getting really sick of Reddit and finally decided to check this place out. One of the best decisions I've made this year.
