    thread will be deleted soon but yes, IQfy is ludicrously popular and WAY more people use it than anyone would let on. Not nearly as big as the mainstream media sites obviously, but it's true. That's why almost every shill campaign launched here is successful. It's also why so many big companies unironically pay jeets to post here.

    The numbers are fudged by about 30%. Contrary to what moronic spastics say, most people lurk and don't post much. There's also a very high user turnover rate. Just about all regular/high post count users over 25 have severe mental disorders and get banned from every where else because they have little to no-self control. The userbase is younger for sure. Females don't make up 30% because they can't easily get attention here. You have to remember that, legally speaking, it's not possible to include demographics under 18 years old. All of the stats change quite a bit because of this.

      >There's also a very high user turnover rate
      You mean there's a lot of people who leave the site? I don't think that's true at all for active users. Most of the good creative content comes from a small number of people, whose absence could be felt when moot purged a bunch of them for a time like 15 years ago, but these people came back eventually. There aren't many sites out there with a design that allows the kind of creativity IQfy's design allows. I think this place has a very high user retention rate for the people who actually write here at all.

      Somehow there seems to be an enormous number of people who don't post and only lurk. I don't understand these people, what they get out of the site. I don't understand how there's apparently so many of them.

        Depends how bad the astroturfing gets. It's gotten much much much better recently and the 300s anti-spam timers have been making the jeets broil with unquenchable rage.

        I'm talking about people who use the website, not only the most active people who cry about needing to wait 5 minutes to make another thread. There are people born every day and they will eventually replace those who leave, and they will be replaced at some point as well. The visitor numbers don't increase much over the years because people aren't sticking around. The repetitive nature of posts and conversations is enough to make people leave after a few years. And that's not counting the brand image being forever tarnished by awful moderation nobody wants to deal with. Even attention prostitute Battlestation threads on IQfy and here on IQfy rarely keep the same users for more than a few years.

          You're wrong about them leaving the site. If the content gets repetitive, I imagine those users follow a similar path to me. I used to browse mostly IQfy, and posted there for years, and then I left. I didn't leave the site, I just went to new boards, like IQfy and IQfy and IQfy and /ic/ and many others. The IQfy content didn't get repetitive for me, it's just I had a creative shift in what I interested in at the time.

          The conversations and creativity the format of IQfy allows for are enough to retain the users who appreciate and make use of this property of the site essentially forever, because is no alternative at the moment. For example, I have come up with endless hilarious creative writing ideas for stuff to post on IQfy, which would never succeed elsewhere on the internet, or would get engaged in with the same enthusiasm.

            Says the anon who isn't using the site correctly. What I said is true for my experience and for the experience of the few other IQfy users who I've spoken to outside of this site.

            I find your characterization to be unrealistic and doesn't align with experience. If you find it compelling, if you think you can relate to it, it's because you aren't getting the most out of IQfy.

      It would be 100% accurate if they count transwomen as women considering how they have become an incredibly loud majority on many boards.

      /vp/ /ic/ /y/ /b/ /soc/ /vt/ /mlp/ /po/ /cm/ /lgbt/ /adv/ /hm/ /c/ and maybe some more I can't remember all have SIGNIFICANT female presence. Some of them are actually majority female.

    IQfy lost all its magic for me when they added the IP counter on every thread.
    Back then at least you had the ILLUSION you were talking to hundreds of people.

    Now you realize most threads are just 10 IPs. And most times threads are just stealth generals or the visible face of some discord server.

      Hobby boards were always like that though.
      Go to a board like /b/ or /vt/ right now and you'll still find threads with IP counts of close to a hundred or even higher.

      If that's the case then the real numbers are likely even higher than what's written there.
