And only 60-70ish people are ever on the forum at once.

there are over 400,000 user names that are made

there are really only about 300 or so people that come here on a regular basis
and 600 more that are on and off
and 100 that are more off then on

if that makes sense

I know far lesser-known and lesser-used sites that have over a million accounts. This site is hugely popular and has been around since 1999, so I guestimated the amount of users.

I wouldn't want to use these forums either if I weren't already dependent on them to occupy me when i'm really bored.

Because when a site has thousands of games and movies your number 1 source of entertainment is a forum?

Because every user on NG is as active as when they signed up, and goes on the General section of the BBS.

As much as you may believe it, Newgrounds is not a large "community", the largest part of Newgrounds is just consumption. Although the forums used to be more traffic they have always been a small part of the site, liljim and Tom have said this elsewhere before and it's easy enough to verify. If the forum was a large part of the site then Newgrounds wouldn't exist, the traffic that this forum gets is very low and wouldn't be able to sustain 1 employee, let alone 10.

Also the site has ~3,000,000 users -- although the redesign removed the page that showed the accurate count, but last time I checked I believe it was around 3m.

User traffic isn't just focused on the forums, but the other portals as well.

you have to realize that most of the people that contribute stuff that actually matters don't frequent the forums at all. In fact most of the best artists on the site have only lvl 2 or 3 unlocked, with less than 100 posts.

Forums aren't the site's focus. The portals are. Still, it seems like this is a low point of Newgrounds. Wouldn't be surprised if this ship sunk fast.

There are 400,000+ accounts in newgrounds.
Some of them are advertisement,alt or useless accounts.
Some of them are accounts of people who come here only for the portal.
Some of them are owned by people who are in different time zone than the majority.

Well, the portal is the sites main focus, but still, im discouraged by the ever shrinking forum. In fact, since this is the main thing I use on this site I tend to use the forum as an indicator as to how well the site as a whole is doing. My mistake.
I pop into the portals every now and again but I don't visit for too long.

It's the 1% Rule.

Only 1-10% of users who visit the site actually create an account. Of these 1-10%, only about 10% of them use the BBS at all and 1% use it frequently. Only about 1% actually submit content and even less create quality content.

These numbers are just rough estimates, but the 1% rule is a good indicator of why you don't see many users posting on the BBS or submitting content. You simply don't see the outcome of most of Newgrounds' traffic because few sign up, fewer post on the BBS, and even fewer contribute quality content.

Yeah this makes perfect sence and is the impression I'v got since I started lurking the forums wich I admit isen't all that long ago.

:: Guess Im one of those on and off people btw.
