    DarkDemon: Did you know?

    [center:29f1m0t6]How does DarkDemon stack up as an animation community?[/center:29f1m0t6]

    A statistical analysis of DarkDemon, looking at the figures generated by the forum, and comparing it to DarkDemon's peers.

    The following websites were also used in this experiment: StickPage, PivotAnimation, FluidAnims and Droidz; considered by many to be the most popular stick animation sites.

    The data was collected on April 18th 2012.

    Graphs created by Strider.


    Community Size

    [center:29f1m0t6][/center:29f1m0t6]
    [center:29f1m0t6]Size of Community[/center:29f1m0t6]

    StickPage has a community of 80942 members
    PivotAnimation has a community of 8294 members
    FluidAnims has a community of 20155 member
    Droidz has a community of 19363 members

    DarkDemon has a community of 22418 members, making it the second largest stick animation community.

    User Retainment
    A large community is all well and good, but if no one posts, what's the point? With web technology such as bots, and users being turned away by closer inspection of the community, the next category to look at was user retainment.

    [center:29f1m0t6]
    Number of users with one post or more[/center:29f1m0t6]

    Of all of StickPage's members, 4530 of them has one post or more, of all the users that join only 6% of them post.
    Of all of PivotAnimation's members, 800 of them has one post or more, of all the users that join only 10% of them post.
    Of all of FluidAnim's members, 5250 of them has one post or more, of all the users that join 26% of them post.
    Of all of Droidz's members, 7100 of them has one post or more,of all the users that join
    37% of them post.

    [center:29f1m0t6]
    Percentage of registered users that post on site[/center:29f1m0t6]

    Of all of DarkDemon's members, 10850 of them has one post or more, of all the users that join 48% of them post.

    Active Users
    Having one post or more is hardly an active community, and it could be argued that such a high percentage is due to an influx of bots (Which it isn't), so the next criteria was examining the number of active users in each community; once a user decided to join and post, how many actually stayed within the community?

    [center:29f1m0t6]
    Number of users with more than 100 posts[/center:29f1m0t6]

    Of all of StickPage's members, 1170 of them has more than 100 posts, of all the users that join only 1.4% of them stay active.
    Of all of PivotAnimation's members, 72 of them has more than 100 posts, of all the users that join only 0.8% of them stay active.
    Of all of FluidAnim's members, 599 of them has more than 100 posts, of all the users that join 3% of them stay active.
    Of all of Droidz's members, 700 of them has more than 100 posts,of all the users that join 4% of them stay active.

    [center:29f1m0t6]
    Percentage of registered users with more than 100 posts[/center:29f1m0t6]

    Of all of DarkDemon's members, 1303 of them has more than 100 posts,of all the users that join 6% of them stay active.

    And there's more fun statistics to come! As well as some explanations and insights; stay classy DarkDemon

    Wow, it surprised me that DarkDemon is ''more active'' than Fluidanims in the most parts.
    Sounds good, It seems that DD is quite popular.

    Re: DarkDemon: Did you know?

    I see we have good statistics.

    @cheewbacca really???? take the First crap back to youtube. You have to take into consideration that DD has a longevity rank.

    *You must be prepared for harsh critique. What I offer is in sight on what you should of done and you may get a offended, but you must understand if you can't take the heat get out of the kitchen of art.

    Re: DarkDemon: Did you know?

    Wait, so basically we're just about as active as Stickpage, if not more?

    God damn, this place feels so small compared to how big it really is...

    Edit: Hopefully this'll make the "DD's slowly dying" statement go ostrich and disappear in the depths of the earth.

    Edit2: Wait, did any of you know FA and stickpage are merging? This'll make the statistics drown...

    Uh, hi. I do stuff.

    There's some really interesting stats still to come, and rest assured, whilst at the moment DD is genuinely kicking the crap out of the other forums, we fall down in user persistence (To a degree) and definitely in social media and modern day growth! That said, there's some very cool SEO facts that mean we perform a lot better than we logically should..

    As for comparing FA to DD, it's a bad comparison to be honest, when we get to serious post figures we absolutely dominate (The same goes for all the forums except SP) but it's important to remember that DarkDemon is almost twice as old as FluidAnims (For this experiment, DD is actually the oldest site, though realistically StickPage was the first)

    They've been merged for over 4 months; this (Along with other factors like ad-bots, database failures and hacking) is looked at in more detail in the analysis part of the report

    Okay, great to hear!

    @Darren: Dude, Adam's been gone for half a year now, Chimaera's not Adam, he just took over his job.
