I would love to know how many active accounts are about, how many of us are coming into the Cavern now?

That would be interesting.

I saw DRC (365) Bevin just now, and assuming the calculation of 20 avis == 1 new hood, that puts us in the range of 7300 avis. How many of those are active explorers, of course, is up to speculation.

Interesting. :)

I think only Cyan can tell us how many accounts there are active at present.

Assuming a max of 5 avi's per player, that gives a minimum of 1400 accounts. More likely would be 1-2 avi's per player, which would put the numbers well over 3,500 - and growing :D

That is great news! Well apart from the lag! But it is good to know it is popular.

My answer is, not enough.

The poll in This thread informs us that there are about 1.8 avvies per person. (Or at least for those persons that visit the forums and like answering polls...) Going with the 365 Bevin number, that gives us somewhere around:

4,055 people!
(not even accounts, people. The poll was for avvies across all of your accounts.)

It's still a ballpark estimate, though.

Just to reduce uncertainty, let me interject that it's still 20 avatars to a hood. I just created a new avatar (in DRC-414), and the neighborhood population rapidly went up to 20 and stopped.

(My first avatar, in DRC-30, sees 19 hood members... which supports my claim that only a small fraction of avatars ever change hoods.)

But you also have to consider that the more popular hoods have a lot more people.
For example, at last count, Uru Obsession was up to 175 members.

that doesnt relaly matter because to join a hood you have to leave a hood.

Operating under the assumption that if you leave a hood, they refill your spot.
