I am really a person of numbers and frequent many petsites just to see how many users are on. A trend I've noticed for the last year is it seems nothing is changing. Subeta - Been about 700 - 900 online for the last year (although I remember it frequenting over 1000). Powerpets - 400 - 600 people online hasn't changed since they first put up the statistic. Marapets - 400 - 600 People online even though it used to be upwards of 3000. Many sites I have not seen increase in activity as well include misticpets, rescreatu, neurogalaxy, ect. And not to forget sites that have gone down hill, ichumon, neopets, ect. Forgive me for setting a stereotype as I realize a few petsites have jumped a bit in activity (Icepets used to have 2 players on when I joined @@), but the community is not doing well. With an ever increasing portion of the population gaining access to the internet, there has been big increases for just about every other niche on the web (social networking, humor, videos, ect.), but the petsite industry is not following the trend. It seems the same pool of people are playing the same few websites. I know this topic has probably been brought up before, but I feel it is important to bring up this fact. I can't say, after reading the thread about successful petsites in 2012, that any site is going to be successful in terms of bringing players not already a part of the industry, and by bringing in, I do not mean registrations, I mean having them register and stick with the site. So what is up petsite industry?
