After a period of brief optimism, VGC went back to tracking down. Can definitely pinpoint when I became fully disillusioned with the site.
The good news of VGC is that for the time being, 6000 is the hard floor.
At least the relative YoY won't be too bad soon.
I appreciate you updating this graph, I've kind of missed seeing or monthly posts totals. It was fun seeing it go up last year. I think the largest issue that has caused the decline is the decline in New thread made about news. When they do get created, the posts usually follow.
