DD Growth Milestones: 66K FSoA on Alexa!
« Reply #437 on: September 23, 2015, 01:38:39 AM »
Woo Hoo!  We broke back down to the 60K Handle FSoA tonight!

We have been bouncing around the 70s for a couple of months, flirting with getting to the 60s but not quite getting there.  We finally did!

Next stop...50K handle!  :icon_sunny:

I have a new idea for getting the numbers up again, which I may start next week. Stay Tuned.

How much lower would you like it to go?

DD Growth Milestones: The 300
« Reply #439 on: February 21, 2016, 12:17:47 AM »
Today on two of our ancillary websites, Diner Reddit and Diner You Tube, we crossed the 300 Subscriber Rubicon.  :icon_sunny:  We pulled this off in under 6 months of operation on both sites.  By contrast, Diner Soundcloud is still at just 176 subscribers after almost 3 years.

300 may not seem like much, but this represents just the core of die hard Diners who regularly hit all our websites, pretty much on a Daily basis.  This includes the 20 or so regulars who post on the forum, another 10 or so who post on the blog commentariat, and then the rest are the regular Lurkers.

Based on blog page hits and IP Addys, there are another 2000 or so occassional Diners, who stop by for a Collapse Meal once a week or so, and then another 3000 or so who drop by once a month or so.  The Balance of the 40,000 page hits we get each month come from folks who randomly hit on the Diner through searches or links from other sites, along with the Bots of course.

I am most proud of The 300 though.  These are the folks who will bring the Diner Message to others and spread the word of the oncoming Collapse of Industrial Civilization.  These are the folks who will Save As Many As They Can.


My Gratitude to The 300.  You know who you are.

DD Growth Milestones: 100,000
« Reply #440 on: June 02, 2016, 12:52:05 AM »
Yesterday the Diner Forum broke through the 100,000 Post Barrier. :icon_sunny:  This was accomplished in roughly 4.5 years of posting by the Diners.

The Top Ten contributors to the Diner Forum by post total over these years are:

RE
    20058
Golden Oxen
    9432
Surly1
    9019
agelbert
    8050

    8010
knarf
    4314
Uncle Bob
    4126
MKing
    3232
WHD
    3175
azozeo
    2861


Our database chronicling the ongoing Collapse of Industrialization is among the most comprehensive on the net.  Besides the extraordinary number of collapse related Newz Links dropped on by the Diner Newz Houndz, there are at least an equal number of long threads of philosphical discussion on the nature of collapse and its repercussions.

I would like to express my GREATEST GRATITUDE to all the Diners who have contributed over the years to make the Doomstead Diner...wait for it...

Congratulations to the ALL of the Diners who contribute, in one way or the other, to the website I consider my "Daily Bread."

A special note of congratulations to the mainstays (you know who you are) that provide the continual stream of important information, insight, dialogue and thoughtfulness as we wrestle with the most difficult issues of our time. The DD is an extraordinary multi-dimensional platform where intellect, argument, curiosity and humor intersect.

I look forward to many more more visits as well as making the odd comment here and there when the urge overwhelms me.

Don't be a stranger, Bill. This place only works because of the people who put stuff up every day. And they sure DO know who they are.

That's your best Testimonial yet BS! It's going up on the Forum Header as Quote of the Decade.  :icon_sunny:

I also 2nd Surly's remarks.  More Diners Chewing the Collapse Fat makes it a livelier eatery!

Here's the Top 10 Diner Posters with their current post count:


RE
    20860
Golden Oxen
    9851
Surly1
    9321
Eddie
    8610

    8399

Uncle Bob
    4126
MKing
    3232
WHD
    3175
azozeo
    3150

Secretariat RE out in the lead by 31 lengths.  :icon_mrgreen:


In the money, GO to Place, Surly to Show in a close battle.

4th & 5th in another tight race, Eddie & AG

6th & 7th Knarf & UB.  With UB currently Walkabout, Knarf's place is secure for a while.

8th place MK.  Since he is currently in the Cooler, likely to fade.

9th & 10th place WHD & AZ neck & neck.  With WHD Walkabout and AZ driving hard with Nibiru posts, these positions will switch in the next week or so.


For the rest of you Diners not currently in the Top Ten, now you know what your Benchmarks are to become a member of the Diner Poster Hall of Fame.  :icon_sunny:

You opened the door, may I enter?

Diner MKing is on this top ten list and rightfully so, like him or not he's a Diner and a regular, and I miss his commentary.

Just making a one time plea for you to reconsider this grossly unjust and demeaning punishment of a regular Diner. It has gone on long enough IMO.

Assuming for a moment RE he is the demonic Satan from the other side, a champion of the status quo and one who belly laughs at and ridicules Doomers, aren't we better off with his dialogue and criticisms? He is considered a nasty undesirable sort by most, but none think he is a fool.

The burden you have placed on him for his release is tantamount to banning, and is not the way a Diner regular should be treated.

It never occurred to me that this was a competition.

There's also that "quality" thingy. All posts are not created equal. Two or three posts with useful info are probably more useful to the general readership than several dozen of these:

Sorry you miss his contributions, those of us who had to moderate the nonstop trash and insults he pitched out do not.

He is always free to own up to his real identity and then post up again, as well as confront the people he has insulted on the pages of the Diner, including but not limited to James Howard Kunstler, Gail Tverberg, Nicole Foss, Arthur Berman, David Hughes, Ugo Bardi, and many others.

Until he owns up to who he is and will confront his attack targets honestly, he will remain on ice.  That is all she wrote.

RE

There are over 7 billion people in this world, 7 billion. Billions of them now having access to the internet.

You put up a list of ten of them, just 10, which amounts to a grain of sand on the beach. These ten by some miracle of communication found their way here and decided to spend a great deal of time here, some mysterious thread ties us all together which to this day escapes me. They are Diners.

That is the only thought I wish to leave you with on this topic.
