    TSC in the Top 10

    Post by Zezima on June 8th 2012, 2:47 am

    So after some moderately extensive (Yes it's a paradoxical turn of phrase, shaddap.) research, I've come up with what is as close to a completely comprehensive, ordered list of the internet's 12 largest Sonic sites, or communities at least since statistical social data is much simpler to directly compare.

    If you know of any other Sonic sites with considerably more activity in any given area, feel free to correct me, (Hah, like anyone's reading this.) I didn't spend all day looking these up (Yes I did.), so there may be a hole or two somewhere, but this should cover it for the most part.

    Just a chart to give a perspective on the size of TSC in comparison to the largest, directly competing fora. To be in the top 12 overall is an honor, and I hope we can soon be in the definitive top 5, but we can't do it without you. So let's do this.

    Spoiler:

    I'm pretty sure The Sonic Community has enough socks it lost in the laundry.

    But it is good to see how well we're doing. Personally, I'm most curious in how Sonic Zone has gotten the PPM so high.

    We've got the quality, now all we need is the quantity and we'll surely hit the top 5 in no time.

    The fact that we've gotten to the top 12 in post count is great, but being 9th overall in posts per member and 10th overall in member count is awesome.

    By "no time" do you mean relative to the human life span or the planet life span?

    I guess that means that I should revamp RwS again. Not that I correlated those two things at all, I was just looking for support and an opportunity for self-promotion.

    Well, you could always post your reviews here regularly. You seem to make them often enough and it would work with TSCollection.

    Well however Sonic Zone's doing it, they're doing it well. They're either pruning inactive members with severe cutoff lines, or they have the most active 297 members the internet has ever seen.

    Sure, I suppose I could. Plus, for those of you who remember my Ulti-Rant I'm posting a review of sonic 06 pretty soon.

    Original post edited and updated.

    SonicWorld.net closed their forums, so they've been removed from the list.

    SoA is incomparable since they're the official site, and have been removed in the posts and members list.

    Also added dates of site creation and forum software for further comparison.

    After the above revisions, TSC is now in the top 10!

    Hmmm. Where's the chapter for reasons.
    Is it in the same chapter as misplaced question marks.

    In other words, he was asking a rhetorical question, and using dots is becoming the popular thing.
