[Statistics] The most popular sections of Omorashi.org

Recommended Posts

I just kind of did this out of boredom, after thinking about it in the IRC. I shared it there and figured, why not share it for everyone too.

So here's a breakdown of which sections have the most topics/posts (combined) relative to the other sections:

 

Chart 1:

Yep, the Roleplaying section takes up the vast majority, at almost 79% of all threads/posts. 

So much so I ended up having to split the graph just to make all the other sections readable.

 

 

And additionally, here's another graph of every section excluding the outlier (roleplaying). The only real purpose for this is the different percentage numbers.

 

Chart 2:

What do you think, does any of this surprise you? I know I was shocked to see how much of an overwhelming majority the role playing section was.

To give a little more reference for how big the Roleplaying section is, the top 3 sections were: 
  • Video Links & Uploads at 41,000
  • General Discussion at 58,000
  • Roleplaying at 870,000
I was also a little surprised that the forum games hadn't been higher on the list. Apparently we're a fairly problem-less community too, as the advice section is the smallest of all.
 
The total number of threads and posts combined across all sections was 1,106,088  and all data was recorded as of earlier the day this was posted (Nov. 8th 2015) using the counts of threads and replies on the front page.
 
... I'm thinking of doing a follow up thread with more statistics if this gets any significant response. Otherwise I'll just assume no one was interested in this type of stuff.
Next time will probably be something a little deeper, that isn't just listed for everybody clearly on the front page ^^;

I hadn't noticed that as I generally ignore the roleplay stuff... but looks like it's just that the threads seem to be long and probably mostly exchanges between two people. In terms of number of topics started, as opposed to posts, it's a lot smaller.

Videos/pictures on the other hand tend to lead to less discussion, but I'd imagine a higher proportion of users interact with these threads than the roleplay.

Interesting statistics! It seem more fair if you were to base the graphs on posts made, excluding replies. If you were to do that, I think the roleplaying forum would go down significantly. I am quite disappointed to see that the debate section is among the lowest, as it leads to the most interesting/intellectual growth/discussions.

 

Also, how did you make these graphs?

Makes sense, roleplaying would have so much. It's all about interacting. I see why the non omo sections are so unpopular. Not too many people come here for non omo related stuff.

Yeah, +1 to roleplays having inflated posts per thread by their very nature(I don't know about here, but on another forum I frequent, member post counts are disabled in the RP section because otherwise the RPers would have much higher post counts than everyone else).

IIRC, posts in the RP and games sections here don't go towards your post count.

Pretty much, post count alone isn't a good indicator of popularity.

 

Here are some more accurate and in-depth statistics on popularity using an aggregate of the sites traffic so far this year,

The above just provides raw traffic statistics. I also have the results of an older member feedback survey I conducted on the site some time back, which contains a lot of various information on top of the sections users state they use most recently,

Yea, I can definitely understand why they would have more, the reason I actually ended up doing this was I had noticed that the recent activity box on the front page excluded the forum games and roleplaying sections, so I wanted to see if they were included how overwhelming it'd be. Roleplaying makes sense, the forum games on the other hand could probably be bearable, since it's not as large a percent of the posts. But I suppose the reason those are blocked is because everyone would just see the same dozen or so threads every time.

Also, how did you make these graphs?

I just used Excel, nothing too fancy ^^;

Thanks for sharing more data too Kirito.
