Starting up a new monthly post where I look at the communities in the instance to see how well all of them are doing

From this we should be able to see what communities are struggling so that they can be focused on for adding activity across the instance

My goal for december will be increasing the amount of communities that appear in the active and moderate sections and will compare to see the activity change then

For community activity levels im breaking this into 5 categories (note these stats are based on the new users/month stats in the instance)

  • Lively- 5k users/month or above
  • Active - 201-4999 users/month
  • Moderate - 51-200 users/month
  • Quiet - 11-50 users/month
  • Dead - 0-10

Communities in each category

  • Lively communities: 2 (1%)
  • Active communities: 11 (6%)
  • Moderate communities: 27 (15%)
  • Quiet communities: 45 (25%)
  • Dead communities: 92 (52%)

Most active communities

Least active communities

(These are ones that will be prioritized for making active) (theres a lot in the dead category so these are random ones from that, not all of them)

One other community that should be interesting to see the growth is the advent of code community as that is about to start

    52% dead communities 😮 But at least there are stats. I wonder how many dead communities other forums and instance have.

      Probably a larger amount considering other instances don’t have a limiter for community creation so get a bunch more

      I can check

        I realized I cant check other instances individually with my stat system so I just took the average from all instances

        for all communities that are visible to the instance 61% are dead so our instance is doing better than average
