:sneezing_face:

I think that there is gonna be a new thread at some point that people like. There needs to be an other category.

But mods play it too.

I fell like at some point this will be top ten.

Wait I got 100 in that part of exam.

What about October/November?

The all-in one democratic game started even after (July?) and got more posts… I didn’t check others, hope it’s the only miss

The all-in-one democratic game has clambered up from #11 to #8, overtaking a series of dormant forum games (Werewolf Game 4, The Raptor Game, and Go Zendo).

Meanwhile, Important Philosophical Questions + POLLS has risen from #18 to become the new #11.

Go World News has getting some love lately and has climbed to #33.

It now takes 945 posts to enter the top ten threads – still less than half the length of Go Memes! :face_with_monocle:

We haven’t done a full check-in yet this year, so let’s investigate.

Memes must always be on top!

Also noteworthy, IPQ+P finally broke into the top 10, and if it continues to grow could be the one to close out 1k replies required for top 10 entry!

We can also check on the “lower league”, 31-50.

Some of the numbers in both lists might be slightly off because of discrepancies in how deleted posts are displayed.

I was wondering about this!

So, how to interpret the data?

The Werewolf threads are dead – 12, 17, 34, 36, 43, 47. The Diplomatic Go threads are dead – 29, 44, 50. (but the meta thread 33 is merely dormant). The Yahtzee thread, 8, and the Semantic Game, 40, also appear to be dead. Hurt / Heal Fuseki, 20, has finally completed.

22, 42, and some others are actually locked.

45, the 2020 rating thread, is dead. 41, the Glicko-2 thread, is also dead.

4 (Guess the person), 7 (Geoguesser), 9 (Go Zendo), 11 (Raptor Game), 14 (Shiritori), and 26 (Guess Rank) are arguably dormant.

The truly active long threads are, roughly:

1: Go Memes!
2: Are you worried about coronavirus?
3: How was your day, Regular?
5: Language Learners’ Library
6: The all-in-one democratic game
10: Important Philosophical Questions + POLLS
13: Super Secret Hit List
15: Through the Years: Long Correspondence
16: You know you are a Go addict when…
21: Music sharing thread. Links only.
23: The Dining Hall
24: Images of newer times
28: Cats (& other animal bros)
30: PUZZLES: a tsumego a day
32: Napster’s music sharing thread
35: Guess the black stones
45: My opponent left, I waited 29 min

We can expect these fifteen or so threads, for the moment, to rise relative to those outside the list.

Huh, somehow I missed Go videos. That thread should be #39 at 274, meaning all the ones below it are pushed down one, and Kibitz Garden II is bumped right out.

Whilst I’m posting, I noticed that The Conquest of Go is sneaking ahead of G0tstats is back!.

Which languages do you speak? has broken into the top fifty, I think at #48.

It looks like Werewolf Game 2 will soon be bumping out of the lower league, as it should.

Some time this week, the All-in-One Democratic Game finally surpassed the Language Learners’ Library and broke into the top five, both at ~1.4k posts.

Thread #4 is the dead forum game Guess the person at 1.8k, and above that is the coronavirus thread at a seemingly untouchable 2.3k.

In other news, both You know you are A Go addict when… and Through the Years: LC have both overtaken the dead translingual shiritori game at around 700 posts and are catching up to the longest of the werewolf threads (IV – Martian Mimics).

I would hesitate to called any unlocked thread “dead”, but use dormant instead. It could always start back up.

For example, the hurt/heal fuseki game went dormant for four years, before resuming and concluding.
