13,349 accounts
2,325 with 1 - 5 debates
257 with 6 - 10 debates
137 with 11 - 25 debates
54 with 26 - 50 debates
13 with 51 - 100 debates
12 with 100+ debates

I'm sure it happens on a lot of other sites too. But DDO's retentions rate is less than 5%, which is quite bad.

Very true. There was a time, and you may know, I didn't check to see, right before V3 (I believe) was released that I, along with a fair number of other active and formerly active members, thought that we would have things like mods and perhaps even user mods, along with a host of features that have never been released.

The site's core is simply very small, and because of the nature of debate, combined with the reality of this site's inner-politics that probrably isn't going to change.

What was the pricetag again? Half a million? Right...

I think I know what you're talking about, but just for the heck of it, could you please elaborate on what you mean by this site's inner politics?

Deleting all accounts with 0 debates and 0 forum posts, older than 1 month would be great and probably quite simple, but also pretty unrealistic given the nature of this site.

I would say if you think you know then you know.

Just the way the site has evolved, really. Vote-bombing? hehe

Yes, and a long account created/ coming online ratio. like if the account was created a month ago and he/she was last online a month ago.
Why kill people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong?

Phil would never delete the inactives. The more people who are members the better.

And now there are 332,213. Respectable increase for 6/7 years. When weighed against how many are active, though, it's not really too much of an improvement.

It's always fun to look at theses stats every once in a while: [http://www.debate.org...]

Well I'm here. Addicted to DDO. It is most likely I will never leave. I accept my fate with open arms. :-)
