A few years ago, I posted an analysis of the OGS userbase, looking at trends in growth (OGS Player Statistics). I recently returned to OGS, and asked Anoek for an updated DB to run an updated analysis, which he graciously provided.
New stats/plots are here:
Overall trends are roughly similar: growth has been consistent and healthy. About 2000 new users sign up on OGS each week, and about 5% of those will remain active beyond a year.
Nice! One thing we know is that a significant number of the registrations are spam bots, which contributes to the apparently high lossage. fwiw
I should probably just throw out all the “registered and never came back” accounts at the beginning of the analysis.
We just need moar nicotine to keep em comin bax
Good to have you back. I think you were the one who inspired me to make my own graphs long time ago.
