    Conventional format (like TB or a few thousand others). Any subject or focus.

    This came up in a discussion the other day and I realized I didn't have the slightest idea, but was curious. There must be outfits that know this info precisely.

    Thanks for any good data!
     
  2. I don't have any data to share, but I would think that these days political forums would get a lot of traffic.

    I would guess Reddit or Off Topic for starters.

    It IS interesting, but if you look at the "about" section, it appears that it only lists forums whose admins have submitted them to be tracked.

    I think maybe this just ranks subscribing boards.

    I'm pretty sure that even TalkBass has more than ~800 unique visitors per day. Right? :confused:

    It's probably a little more accurate if you sort by posts...

    Big-Boards stats are not meaningful. Let's move on.

    Another person mentioned that AR15.Com had over 7000 users on last night when he looked.

    So, we're figuring some giant hit stats there.

    Anything else comparable? :confused:

    I'm not sure how high it ranks in anything, but bodybuilding.com is pretty big

    Yes but chicks love us!
     
  15. I went to one one time, and after 2 minutes discovered that 99.99% of the entire forum were "rate my fandangler" threads.

    :atoz:

    Gaia is the largest forum and has been for a long time. They don't moderate well though, so their forum culture is terrible.
