Ok, so this thing was incredible in late 2011. Freakin awesome. Ive never felt energy like that. All sorts of people coming together to declare "The shit is fucked up".... What an incredible experience.
Here is a chart that track activity. One can see that unique visitors to this site is almost dead. But interestly, those who visit are staying here quite longer. This could mean a few things, of which I would be interested in discussing.
The tabs over the graph are how you change the stats.
Traffic rank and Reach are how one tells about the overall popularity of a site. It was very high in late 2011 and early 2012 and now is almost nothing.
Pageviews and TimeonSite are, however, very very high in comparision to 2011. So the ones who are here are spending a lot of time here, and there arent too many outsiders coming on board. I think this is related to the forum here. Lets face it, we spend a lot of time here, either to argue, work on our debate skills, work on our writing, or get feedback on ideas and concepts.
Bottom line, it was awesome in 2011. Activism is a shell of itself now from what it was during that special moment. So how do we rekindle?
Should it be an Occupy rekindle? Or something new?
Were aspects of Occupy self defeating? Or simply taking a while to catch on?
The first step to recovery is to admit there is something wrong. So how do we get it back?
