RE:Question about pic removal

Here's the new numbers including certified. There is no way to sort out paid.

There are currently 392,411 total accounts

332,461 Men (20,871 Certified)
29,129 Women (415 Certified)
21,725 Couples (655 Certified)
251 Trans (29 Certified)
3,164 Other (49 Certified)

In the last year, 77,953 have logged in (23.4% of total)

61,243 Men (13,581 Certified)
9,513 Women (151 Certified)
3,247 Couples (311 Certified)
133 Trans (21 Certified)
507 Other (32 Certified)

In the last month, 29,169 have logged in (7.4% of total)

22,099 Men (9154 Certified)
4412 Women (85 Certified)
799 Couple (212 Certified)
42 Trans (11 Certified)
105 Other (21 Certified)

Minor discrepencies in numbers are due to these being real-time inquiries.
Accounts are being added/deleted/changed as the stats are being compiled.

Also, the "gender" cannot be confirmed, but is only what the user claimed in their profile, and if certified, provided pictures for. I suspect a large percentage of those uncertified claiming to be women, aren't. I doubt the fruadulant number of certified is more than a few, if any at all.

I wish it were possible to pull the stats on "paid", but it isn't a search option provided.

That's happened to us and we Refuse to join any group with the moderater 'Arvado' as he has duplicated many already existing groups, he's clothed on his profile, he has to access all your information and with conversations had, he sounds very sleazy. Will never trust him.

I tried to join one of his but he wouldn't allow me.
He won't permit people without publicly available full length nude photos but his media is friends only and his avatar is waist up wearing a shirt!
Probably better that I don't belong even though some of the topics look interesting.

RE:Question about pic removal

Thanks cobeachbum! I love seeing the numbers like that. So only 22,019 certified members? Just ~5.7% of the user base? Gotta say, I thought there'd be more than that. Although a lack of certification does not automatically make you a liar. The log-in numbers are interesting though... it shows that member retention is apparently fairly low, and that retention among women and couples is shrinking at a higher rate than the others. I wonder if they have internal information about how many of the total are fake accounts? I'm guessing they do, but bigger numbers of members (active or real or not) makes them sound better, lol.

Do the numbers represent the same members who may log in multiple times per day and so may have logged in hundreds of times per month?

It would be interesting to know how many unique individuals have logged in as opposed to the total of times anyone many have logged in and including multiple log ins.

The numbers only represent each unique account once, regardless of how many times they may have logged in during the specified period.

Many accounts only login once or twice. Once they realize this is not a porn site, they lose interest and never come back. These are the accounts that need to be deleted.

As for certified vs non-certified, that gets trickier. I have regular conversations with non-certified accounts that I believe are genuine. I have also come across certified accounts that give me pause. If you're an exibitionist, I don't think you'd have any problem sending the certification photos in.

As far as I know, the only accounts that ever actually get deleted are those that continually post porn type photos or blatantly troll. Of course, they just create a new account and start over. For awhile, there was someone creating dozens of accounts at a time, listing New York, New York as the hometown, and posting porn photos. TT2 was pretty quick at deleting them, but it just gives more reason to lock down what abilities new (and uncertified and/or unpaid) accounts have.

The bottom line is out of an alleged almost 400,000 accounts, there are really less than 30,000 worldwide that are reasonably active on the site.
