    Linear member growth

    Hello,

    I did a little gathering and graphing. I found it rather odd, that this website has had a linear growth of members? :\

    Theories?

    I think it's due to people coming here for homework help :-). Now someone can graph the posts .

    Eh, what else was I supposed to do at work? Other than exam study.

    Hmm, yes it could be mainly directly proportional to the amount of people that search for C programming help due to C courses. I think you may be on to something. Boring, but education.

    If you plot the number of active members, I think it would have already came to a dynamic equilibrium.

    I'd be curious to see how it changes throughout each year. Homework posts seems to rapidly increase according to school schedules.

    Interesting. I think too though that the number of people who actually post on CBoard is pretty much a "dynamic equilibrium". The vast majority of people ask one or maybe two questions and then leave (once their course ends).
