So, recently, I was looking at Juggle's Site, and its mentions of DDO.

http://www.juggle.com...

Here are our stats:

30,000 total members
14,000 online debates
700 new forum posts each day
25 new members each day
20 new debates started each day

So, if you look at it that way, we would appear to be a booming, growing community.

While I'm sure most of us know that, though we are still growing to an extent, we are far from booming.

My basic point of this is that, even though these numbers are probably true, why does Juggle bother with us? I mean, they get absolutely no revenue from us. They bought us for $100,000, what are they planning to do with that investment? What gives?

I heard somewhere they get advertising when somebody posts :

That means they spent $3.33 on every member assuming that number is accurate. $7.14 for every debate. More when you consider that they purchased it a while back. That doesn't sound like a solid investment.

I am worth $624.51 to Juggle at that valuation (87 debates X $7.14, + 3.33), or .6% of the total site value.

Actually, now we have 37,500 members (21.43% ^ )

Now there are a total of 17,000+ debates (23.33% ^ )


As for advertising, they haven't gained much.

Technically they have grown. However, i was false growth, in the sense that most of the those members probably were either trolls, or were made and sued for a day. The debates are the same, but more of them are legit.

Ok, I decided to do an ACTUAL calculation instead of using 100k for all calculations.

So presuming that debates and posts have a total equal value (50k) and that the site is still worth 100k (fat chance) , I have:

.3% of all posts, and .37% of all debates.

So 50,000 X .003= 150 and 50,000 X .0037= 185.

150 + 185 + 3.33= $338.33. .33% of the total value.

You are worth even more to them because they see that you are pushing for microtransactions.

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."
