🌟 Would you rather join a website with a lot of members or a small community of members like this one? 🌟

Explained by Tiffanee...

I am always being told "I would join Amirite if it had more members." What is the advantages and disadvantages of big VS small online communities?

Top Comment

I'm not sure what the right number is. SH had a lot more people, but there were so many private groups that you never saw most of them unless you jioned all the groups. I think there are only so many people that you can really develop relationships with. Especially if you are not on evryday for a long period of time. I think if this site doubled in size it would be just about right for me. As always, JMHO.

You have had a love/hate relationship re this place since the very start. As have Plat and I and innumerable others. I rather like this small hometown feel. There are people on here I never thought I'd like in a million years 'cause I never would've thought of getting to know and understand their point of view on another much larger site. I hope some have come to sorta put up with me, as well :)

Advantage: Closer to the members you interact daily with, good or bad.

Disadvantage: Not enough people posting various questions. Not enough activity on various posts. get tired of the same people daily (no offense ... I do like the members on here). Sometimes it's boring ... again no offense.

One thing, I know people don't like this but, the block button is an issue. A lot of people have too many blocked resulting in barely any activity on their posts. With the limited number of members, blocking becomes an issue. JMHO

Spot on. And I have unblocked almost all that I had blocked before although most were weirdo socks like the phony Guru Lynn and the fake Lurx the Soda Jerk.

I would prefer a larger site. More questions, and more people to relate too. Sometimes this site just seems very dead. I miss SH, it was big, lots of people, and some we never ran into every day like here.

With a larger community I doubt people would be complaining so much about being blocked. For instance, There are a few people on this site who have blocked me, but insinuate to others that I have blocked them, which is not true. I can think of three right off the top of my head.

I am thinking the same. I am on other sites as well as this one and this one just seems lifeless most of the time. I invite people here but they all say it is not active enough and doesn't have enough members but how can we have more members if nobody will sign up?

I prefer what we have here compared to a site with large amount of members. Despite my pizza post...size really doesn't matter because it is not the amount of people it is how that amount uses the site.

I am a member of a site since last year that has a ton of members but in all reality...most of those members have the other half blocked or just only comment on particular members post. They have a small community of members that interact daily just like we all do here. Sadly this active site deals a lot with sock accounts, complaining about being blocked, bullying, hate, and a hell of a lot of perverts. The more people there are the more drama there is which is a sad fact but it is true...just look at Facebook.

I have been studying the other site I am on most of the post in the last two weeks I have seen is from 13-15 year old at night and 30-60 during the day but not as much as the 13-15 year old age group. Most of the post are off the wall and nothing I would ever answer. They don't even have a HOF or Leaderboard...either.

I enjoy both but there is a lot more disadvantages than there are advantages. I have hit the block button more times on the bigger site than I have hit it here to be honest.

I prefer a site with more people, like SH. Amirite can get too much like living in a small town. Amirite would be okay if it tripled in size.

I feel you can be more yourself on a larger site.
