Busiest online forums.

#1
I'm curious. I've occasionally discovered other internet forums, but only made the odd post on one or two. And I spend far more time reading posts on Arrse than is healthy. This seems to be a very busy forum. Though there is no reason for me to imagine it is THE BUSIEST on the whole of the world-wide web. I've just googled my question and someone has suggested that Dogs on Acid (www.dogsonacid.com) might be the busiest online forum. At a glance, it appears less busy than arrse. Do any of you have any answers to this?

Ahah! I was curious about the number of new posts made in, for example, a 20 or 30 minute period. Dogs on acid looked quiet, but I was looking at the top of their forum index, which included their "stickies". :roll: I'm assuming there must be lots of busy forums, but I have not come across them.

Bovvy - as someone who is under the cam net with those OOOOHHHAAARRRRRRRRR!! wasters you must agree that if there is a busier one, no work must be going on in the universe.

I see where you're coming from. I'm only on Arrse during my time off work (it's not very sunny today, so I don't fancy going out). In my current employment, I am much too far down the food-chain to have intenet access at work .......... or the chance of 5 minutes with my nose off the grindstone to contemplate it. 8O :x :evil:

The busiest 'forum' I've ever been on is 4chan, especially the random board. Threads there last for an average of 20-30 minutes.

Its actually more of an imageboard than a forum, but its the same idea.

I'd say Free Republic would be pretty busy although they don't give figures for the numbers of users online - then again I think they have in excess of 250,000 members. What I do notice is the number of threads with 1 or 2 posts - probably because they're about topics outside of the US! :lol:

At the other end of the scale, you've got Free Britannia with 97 registered users, the most users online was 42 (last November) and the number of posts rarely break double figures. Nevermind.

would seem that even dogsonacid is small fry!
Ahhhhhhhhh!! The Holy Grail. Did you look for that? ....... or know of it before? Thank you. With my autistic traits, that will keep me amused for hours. Bovvy

But PPRuNe is 17th highest on average online users! 8O (or 25th on current settings). It appears Arrse does not feature in this list.
