Also thank you everyone for the kindness.  Work has been pretty stressful recently and will still be for a bit.  So thanks for the support.

Just for the heck of it... As of May 11, 2016.

PSF has 79 members.
Sneezefurs has 381.

PSF has 15,297 total posts.
Sneezers has 15,186 total posts.

PSF has 0.72 registrations on average per day.
Sneezers has 0.38 registrations on average per day.

PSF has on average 145.03 posts per day.
Sneezers has on average 6.14 posts per day.

PSF has 5,727.62 page views per day on average.
Sneezers has 3,430.23 page views per day on average.

PSF has 687314 total page views.  Been online since January 2016.
Sneezefurs has 9,896,211 total page views.  Been online since June 2008.

So how do we get more members and grow, PSF?  We are seriously destroying that site in nearly every aspect and stat currently.  We only lose on some due to time factors.  There is no reason why PSF should be seen as third fiddle to the blue forum and the red forum.  We need to promote ourselves and get on links pages.  We have momentum, and growth, and are far more active then the second biggest sneeze forum.  We've already beat their entire post total.  It took them 8 years and we beat their post count in 5 months!

While there is a fair deal of overlap between this forum's potential audience and that of Sneezefurs, I don't really think either is really comparable to the SFF (Blue Forum).  The audience there is focused on stories/obs, whereas here is more art-focused.  SFF has a broad spread of participants, while here tends strongly towards The Young and People Within 1 Or 2 Social Degrees From Pone And/Or *Chans.  SFF is grounded in real life, whereas here is grounded in fantasy.  SFF runs a very tight moderation ship, whereas here (thankfully) is small enough to scarcely need moderation (the only ban to date was against a spambot).  I think SFF is the more general-purpose forum.

Hypothetically, if someone in meatspace expressed interest in the fetish, I'd direct them to SFF (*).  It has a degree of "adultness" (as in "maturity", not "XXX") that PSF lacks.  One would not be likely to find a "Plots" thread on SFF, to take one of a multitude of heuristic indicators.

None of this is a condemnation of PSF.  Indeed, I'm very glad that PSF exists, with it's warm, tight-nit community and its particular focuses.

I just don't think there's any /need/ to compete with other forums.  Not Sneezefurs, and definitely not SFF.  The way to "grow" is to be more like SFF -- general purpose, perhaps to a fault.  And I don't find that desirable.

Probably, getting PSF onto SFF's Website Links list is the easiest available short-term win for growth that wouldn't cause or require a significant change to PSF culture.  And courtesy of Smiles, that's already in the pipeline.


(*) Well, okay, in truth I'd apply my poker face and pretend utter ignorance of the subject.

But I believe we mostly all agree we have to broaden our approach or else we will eventually risk becoming stale.  One could argue Sneezefurs is stale.  Those numbers are horribly low for any site, yet it remains the second biggest sneeze fetish site (though an offshoot for sneezing).  PSF is currently branded to take that second actual SNEEZE FORUM title.  Personal Sneeze Forum.  It has clean lines, and is sleek. 

So I guess the real question is, how do we broaden our approach?  We might risk losing some of the smaller, tight knit, aspects, but I believe that will always still be there.

I think we are growing at a good pace.  We just need those new members to become active.  We need new waves/generations of people to keep posting and stay active.

Just shocked when I looked at our member count.  83.  We keep growing. :)  Three new members in three days.

Based on personal observations on a number of other boards over the years, I wouldn't be too overly concerned about boosting numbers.  Bringing in too many with too wide a range of interests outside of the board's purpose can kill a place pretty well too.  And there are already, what, three of us non-snotophiles who've invaded here?  Madness!
