Phinsider 2015 community statistics and top active members

New, comments

Every January, we take a look back at the previous year's top commenters, FanPoster, and FanShot creator.

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

At the start of every year, we take a look back at the previous year here on The Phinsider, to see who contributed the most to the site. These stats are from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015. Last year, we had a little over 14,000 registered members of the site. As of today, we are closing in on 18,000 members. We have also seen about 2,000 new likes on the Facebook site to just under 5,500, and the site/my Twitter account has grown to 8,727 followers. Thank you to everyone for joining, liking, and/or following!

We will also compare this year's numbers to the stats from 2012 through this year. We will skip the front page authors, since we are on here most of the time, but I will include their numbers from each year, just so we continue to have a running tally. Hopefully, one day, someone will be able to beat James McKinney's ridiculous comments and FanPost numbers (though he does cheat by posting the daily random live thread, giving him an unfair advantage in FanPosts).
