Below is a chart showing how many news posts there were on certain subjects and what percentage of the homepage news feed they took up over the past 6 months.
As you can see, the most common news post was relating to Evolution of Combat, I think that's reasonable, everyone can agree it was the biggest update in these past 6 months.
From there its somewhat downhill, 5 percent of the news feed was related to Solomon's General Store, and 10 percent, the Squeal of Fortune. If you add those two together since they're kind of in the same boat (micro-transactions) it takes up a hefty
15 percent of the total homepage news feed.
Moving on we had a total of 5 Og-Blog's and 1 Developers blog, these were much more concentrated in the summer and before the most recent Og-Blog there was a gap of over 19 weeks since the last developer's or Og-Blog. I note this because these are some of my favourite non-content things to see on the news feed.
Some other stats worth mentioning, currently there are 3902 members accounts with 2496 total level, it will be interesting to see how much this number increases as time goes on.
So the general topic of discussion here is;
What do you think of the general content of the news feed and update schedule, is 7 quests (mostly smaller quests) in
6 months enough? Is the amount of SoF news reasonable or too much? What do you think the next 6 months will look like, will there be a increase in players (from now) or decrease?
Also, what is your favourite thing to see on the news feed, and were you disappointed or pleased with the past 6 months?
Do you have high hopes for 2013? (I sure do!)
