I am sure a lot of people here, myself included, would love to see some data on the number of members here vs time. It would be interesting to compare it to the numbers from NICS and other similar data. Would it be possible to make anything like this available?

Thanks

Start a poll and pass out P-Mags for everyone who responds.

I came in January of 2012, before the Cockpocalypse. I came because I built an AR, not because of politics.

Now give me a fucking cookie.

A lot of the newbies could not care less about the 2A, which answers your next question:

Also...is there a marked increase in trolling from antis?

Same here. After all everyone here was at some point a noob. I am just a nerdy scientist who loves to look at data.

The site blatantly posts how many members it has. I am sure that the feds couldn't care less about when they joined.

Cookies are made at site staff meetings, and it has now been revealed they are conducted in the nude.

You still want that cookie?

The batch of dec12 and jan13 are by far the worst on average.
Crazy opinions, blatant trolling, dumb questions, no idea how to search for an answer, need to be spoon fed, are little special flowers, and tech forums are polluted, etc...

Not saying all are like that but I've never seen such a large trend in my short time here.


Rant off.

And it also seems there are a lot of postings of buyer welches from the EE. Wonder if panic buyers jumped in here and signed up, promised to buy pmags, and other AR parts at high prices and have now either began to feel that there will be no ban, or just woke up.
Link Posted: 1/21/2013 2:32:08 PM EDT
They should start a forum for the noobs when they get out of hand kinda like the bear pit but TRG's basement and keep them there till they "play nice".
Link Posted: 1/21/2013 2:45:04 PM EDT
I am sure a large amount are agent provocateurs.

They come in with some stinky bait and a good amount of you bite.

Don't let them work you into a frenzy.

Look in your cookie file you have one from ar15.com

My wish would be to give noobs thirty days to see if they liked the site and then they have to buy a membership or their ISP is blocked.

Members have one year after joining to sign up with the NRA or other approved gun rights organization.

Hot women only have to post pics in BOTD on a quarterly basis to remain on the site.

Does this help?


Interesting stuff. Use the "traffic stats" button then compare Arfcom to other sites. Use Gunbroker as a comparison and you'll see some parallel rises in activity.

ETA: Really? India comes in second to only the US in number of Arfcom surfer. Really?

I stumbled upon ARFCOM because I was looking to build an AR to go with my trash can gun. I read for about 6 months before I joined.

I came for the knowledge, I stay for the witty remarks
