i've really been noticing the number of newly joined members and the total number of members in the Daniweb community and am wondering, can we meet a million target by the end of this year? I would really like us to have a whole new range of digits from next year and if your answer is NO, what can be done to attract more members.....your sincere opinion is needed.

I think the short answer is no. We would need 40,000 new members in November and the same in December. Just ain't gonna happen...

That doesn't buy you anything. Well, it helps with ad revenue, I suppose, but what kind of site would it be if that increase in numbers consisted of 80,000 homework assignments?


It does't even help with ad revenue. It's great to boast a big number, but no one is going to even pay attention if you boast 846,356 versus 983,245. Big deal ;)

We used to increase by about 1,500 new registrations per day. However, then, after complaint after complaint, I removed the "nag window" that appeared for unregistered users on their first pageview to the site coming in from a Google search. We now receive only about 100 new registrations daily.


I would say less than 10 percent, possibly around 5 per 100, going on the number of newly registered members I deal with for spamming.
