How fast is the Sharenator population growing?

This site used to be a lot of unique and good quality posts. now there are so many active members the home page is getting packed with tons and tons of posts. This site is becoming very large compared to previous years and the posting rate is going off the charts.

What do you think will happen if this keeps progressing?

    sharenator will eventually become a profitable enterprise and will run on more powerful servers, allowing faster load speeds and bring peace to the middle east, legalize marijuana worldwide, unify Korea, bring democracy to Cuba, and colonize Mars?

    That, or it will eventually become self aware and use it's access to military bases worldwide to seize control of all missiles and launch an all out assault on its only enemy, MANKIND.
    maybe even solve world hunger...?

    if only if only. I dont care much about any of that (besides colonizing mars). my main issue is how sharenator has become packed with people recently. the home page is updated faster than ive ever seen. ive been thinking of some ideas on how this can be fixed, or atleast reduced

    It's getting kind of boring no ??? I mean how much effort does it take to go to Funnyjunk or Memebase and just save everything you see on there and post it here.
    - MalverdeAl100 April 13, 2011, 5:36 pm
    exactly! i mean i dont mind the few posts that do that. like Darkicon's memebase has gone on for 16 posts. thats his series and hes posting one every couple of days. thats reasonable. but when 30 other people are posting from the same feed hes getting, it just gets excessive. i really wish i could talk to paul and darius about fixing or helping reduce this problem, its ruining the beauty of the sight
    - bufus101 April 13, 2011, 5:38 pm
    Not to mention most of the new posts are mostly comics that are tl;dr. Then there's the post with millions of pics in them and maybe like 3-4 are funny
    - MalverdeAl100 April 13, 2011, 5:42 pm
    yeah. i give props to people who name their title "picdump" this tells you ahead of time that its gonna be a lot of random pics. but the people that are like, "some awesome lolz" adn theres 500 pictures with 5 funny ones, i get mad lol
    - bufus101 April 13, 2011, 5:46 pm
    I've seen one good post today. Just one and it was by Gabsterr16 she doesn't post often but when she does it's always good shit
    - MalverdeAl100 April 13, 2011, 5:52 pm
    but i had a good post today ='( *tear tear*. lol jk. but yeah i understand. i really want to get a lot of the active sharenators on this post to brainstorm some ideas and hopefully present the best ones to paul and darius
    - bufus101 April 13, 2011, 5:58 pm
    are we all getting share nostalgic ?
    - PwnzElite April 13, 2011, 6:01 pm
    I know what you mean, I personally don't like to post the same type of thing over and over again, (which is why I don't have that many posts) I try to switch it up every now and then, some memes, some C&H, some randoms, some fails, etc..
    - drakengard85 April 13, 2011, 6:29 pm
    true and same. like ive been trying to continue that picture contest thing. somewhat original in my opinion from as much as ive seen.
    - bufus101 April 13, 2011, 6:30 pm
    pretty much haha
    - bufus101 April 14, 2011, 7:37 am
    I understand, but it is Sharenator. THe name implies sharing and thusly, people will come and attempt to share, even if we don't want them to. I know I'm... well now I'm not new... but speaking relative to others like Paul, Darius, SuDoKu, I'm new. And Now I am part of the most active Sharenators, but I joined originally because I was bored at school, found sharenator, looked around a bit. Then about a year of free roaming, I said "Hey, why no contribute?".

    Also, I agree with the post spamming. I hope I'm not accused of such, I just have my few posts, and my two little series I am trying to run. Speaking of which, i made a new GIF: Collection.
    - FireRoastedFire April 15, 2011, 4:15 am
    i think the series posts are the best part of sharenator. thats why i tried to start a few my self =P but i totally agree with you. i did the same with, roamed for a while than said hey, this site seems pretty cool to be a part of so i hopped on.

    and same, im not trying to spam posts, just been finding a lot of funny stuff lately lol.

    and nice! did you make a post yet?

    I'm curious to know how long you've been here, bufus101. But yes, it is growing and has been updating more often as a result. I personally enjoy seeing this site grow. Posting the same stuff from one or two sources does get old, but from what I've seen, this site sometimes has phases of what's popular. I'm guessing the meme stuff/pic dump is one of them and it will eventually fall in line with other stuff. Hopefully it will balance out, but for now, I really don't mind myself. Also, one other note, sharenator original, I think there should be some reform with that, you know, encourage OC and maybe define what it takes to get on there.

    1. Whats OC?
    2. i have only been an active member on this site for a few months, but i discovered this site about 2 and a half years ago. So i havent been here too long but i highly value the quality of this site
    3. I do agree with you, sharenator does go through phases. i remember the demotivational phase, that lasted some time.
    4. This site is a very well put together piece of artwork and i give props to the creators on a job well done, but as with anything, there are definitely some things that could be done to improve the site.
    - bufus101 April 13, 2011, 6:15 pm
    OC is original content. Next to the home tab there's one that says "Original" but it's been the same posts for quite some time in there
    - MalverdeAl100 April 13, 2011, 6:17 pm
    1 Original content. Sorry about that, I browse 4chan, I get too used to the slang.
    2. Thank you for that. I'm just always curious as I can never remember every active member's debut.
    3. Yeah, like the C&H or the forum game phase. Wonder what will be next?
    4. Couldn't agree more.
    - Darkhour April 13, 2011, 6:19 pm
    yeah it would be nice to know what classifies as original content
    - bufus101 April 13, 2011, 6:19 pm
    1. NP
    2. its all good, im quite a curious george myself =P
    3.idk, lets waits and hope its good
    - bufus101 April 13, 2011, 6:20 pm
    Next to the home tab there's one that says "Original".......

    This tab takes you to the "original Sharenator site". When you click it it opens not .com.
    - Math April 14, 2011, 8:21 am
    OC is really a double edged sword, people complain that there isnt any, but when there is they complain that its shit, all the while they dont make any themselves
    - Dragkyre April 15, 2011, 2:13 pm
    I know what you mean. I just made an OC post hopefully it's not shit lol

    well has a seroius awnser( didn't read any so tell my if i toke someones idea)
    it will ether grow to a huge site were everyone loves it
    or it will take a life cycle. the trolls will comeback get a bunch of people to leave and then the site will be small untill we kick them off but it wont be has bad as last time

    hopefully it does. but idk. i feel like its just gonna get worse
    - bufus101 April 13, 2011, 7:13 pm
    well theres down falls to it becomeing a huge site. it might become something liek failblogs memebase ect.
    - castlewarsisawsome April 13, 2011, 7:17 pm
    yeah but i dont think most of the sharenators want that to happen =/. i dont want this to become like 4chan or something. i like the small community idea. keeps it more as a friendly community and less as just a posting site
    - bufus101 April 13, 2011, 7:19 pm
    plus the style of this website seems to be aimed more at friendly community type relations than mass posting and content
    - bufus101 April 13, 2011, 7:19 pm
    could not agree more.
    - thekitkatkid April 13, 2011, 8:11 pm
    =) i love this community
    - bufus101 April 14, 2011, 8:37 pm
    I love the 4chan idea, because it would work so well on Sharenator. On 4chan, the anonymity disallows them to separate trolls/newfags from the people who post interesting stuff. This would obviously not be a problem on Sharenator.
    Imagine if Sharenator was like it was back when 90% of the posts had more effort put in than uploading a few pictures. If the increasingly fast rate at which the home page refreshed was compiled solely of interesting posts which had taken some effort to make, it would be no problem. And if people started to make it a problem, our lack of anonymity wouldn't let it go on long.
    - Jackylegs April 15, 2011, 5:37 am
    I feel like the anonymousness would give people more incentive to troll and be douchebags
    - bufus101 April 15, 2011, 7:12 am
    That's my point......
    There IS no anonymity on Sharenator. I know you as bufus101, not Anonymous. Which is why I don't think it would be a problem. If you started posting pics from funnyjunk, and people wanted it to stop, they'd know "bufus101" was doing it, not anonymous.
    - Jackylegs April 15, 2011, 2:08 pm
    ohh i see what your saying. well i guess it has a good side and a bad side. it seems like the best thing to do it let it ride out and see if things get worse or better
    - bufus101 April 15, 2011, 2:19 pm
    What's the bad side?
    - Jackylegs April 15, 2011, 7:13 pm
    too many shitty posts
    - bufus101 April 15, 2011, 7:20 pm
    you can stop 1 troll, but hundreds making bad posts? i know thats a little much but if things get worse its possible
    - bufus101 April 15, 2011, 7:20 pm

    Too fast.
    I hate to sound like a hipster but I liked it when it was smaller (no homo). I just base things off of posters (their names) or the name of the posts now.
    If I know where they get their material from I might as well go to that site.
    A lot of the stuff I used to post exclusively from going to 4chan or cracked just got other people to post the same content/topics & then we get reused stuff or overused websites.

    Edit: because I know someone is going to say I'm self important.
    I'm just using myself as an example.

    no thats totally acceptable. i like to hear other peoples stories and comments, thats why i made this post. Thank you for the response =) but yeah. there are things that can be done to possibly help solve this issue, it would take a lot of planning and thought from all the active sharentors
    - bufus101 April 14, 2011, 7:21 am
    Yah thats how i was i scour the web for things now to find that no one has seen. Although right now im working on some oc that we will see how it turns out

    You do guys realize that the site is also slipping subliminal advertisements for people to create accounts and buy bacon...

    Buy bacon buy bacon buy bacon

    - Math April 15, 2011, 3:37 am
    - bufus101 April 15, 2011, 4:30 am
    Hey guys, I think we should buy some bacon. The thought just popped in my head.
