Traffic levels on FurAffinity vs Weasyl, 2019 edition 2, furlectric boogaloo by Eupeptic

In August 2019, I kept track of the first and last submission IDs on both FA and Weasyl, to find out how many things get posted on each site.

Data:

On FA, the first submission ID on 1 August was 32,484,907 , and the last submission ID on 31 August was 32,879,198 . That makes 394,292 submission IDs in 31 days.

This is an average of about 530 per hour; 12,180 per day; 89,030 per week; 394,300 per month; 4,642,000 per year.

On Weasyl, the first submission ID on 1 August was 1,806,762 , and the last submission ID on 31 August was 1,818,555 . That makes 11,794 submission IDs in 31 days.

This is an average of about 16 per hour; 380 per day; 2,660 per week; 11,790 per month; 138,900 per year.

Conclusion:

In August 2019, FA got about 33 times as many submissions as Weasyl.

Caveats and disclaimers:

The raw submission ID count doesn't consider deleted submissions. Some critters will post a "now streaming" or "YCH reminder" submission and then delete it within a day or so; this drives up the submission IDs, but doesn't lead to more content on the site, long-term.

I don't have data on any other furry art sites, or "general" art sites like DeviantArt, because I pretty much don't use them.

I mostly don't upload artwork; I just favorite and comment.

Data was gathered manually with Erra Boothale's FAExport API (see https://faexport.boothale.net/docs ) and Weasyl's built-in API (see https://projects.weasyl.com/weasylapi/ ).

I am not associated with FA, Weasyl, or any other furry art site, as a staff member, moderator, programmer, or anything else.

Thanks!

    Interesting! I hope Weasyl gets more popular.
