Wonder why the discrepency? / Almost done!

One of the first things I posted to IB was a short story called Neon Shadows. It was actually a bit of writing practice I conceived of while sitting on my ass in a bar near my home, just sipping beer.

Honestly, you never know when inspiration will strike. Luckily I've got a good memory for these little ideas that spring up from time to time.

I threw together a story in a single night and lumped it onto FA, here.

Note the amount of views it's got on FA.

Compare it to this: https://inkbunny.net/submissionview.php?id=51213

That's a surprise. Honestly, I didn't expect many comments or anything on either site, but I wonder why such a story garnered almost 700 views on FailAffinity but a fraction of that on IB? When the tags were pretty much the same? Just wondering, ya know?

Come to think of it, NS isn't my favorite piece of work by a long shot, but looking at it and the other short stories is tickling my fancy to do another one or two. It didn't turn out too badly, and they're good watcher-magnets.

Ahem, moving on.

Tai's Story has been finalized and I only need to do a few fiddly things to make it presentable in its novel format. I'm not going to waste time doing too much, but a few things like page-breaks at the end of chapters and such would help to tidy it up big time.

Astray's fourth chapter is almost finished. Not been able to work on it too much of late. Been a very social month or so, and I've not been able to focus on two stories simultaneously - however the update won't be far away.

Because someone mentioned it: SdY, the third novel to my furry moniker that hasn't been posted to InkBunny, it's still knocking around.
I'm surprised to see that it has a few more fans than I thought. Surprised, but encouraged.
Likely, when Astray is nearly completed, I'll return to SdY.

I haven't forgotten it, and I don't really want to ditch it.

We shall see! Also, like I said, TS has a sequel (at least it's being planned).

Look forward to Astray very muchly. :3

As for the discrepancy, I always gathered that FA still had a higher installed user base than IB, so you're more likely to get views, the current issues with cubs notwithstanding.

FA has a crap ton more people still, but every day more people join FA.

lets put this into perspective.    looking at the total number of accounts that have been crated at the time of this post, there are 55530 or so accounts on inkbunny.  but not all of these are active, hell the first page of listing all members by alphabetical order has only 3 users who had names that were not just a string of zeros.  (seriously, go look)   and of those 55k users, only 5k of them have actually uploaded anything (even just a profile pic counts)  = about 10%

now, look at FA, i dont know where to get the exact number of accounts on FA, but looking at one single page puts it into perspective.   Dragoneer has 15767 people watching his account.    thats 15 thousand people who have +watch'd him, and who knows how many more who havent.  it we limit it to dragoneer's account only and use the 10% from above, that means that there would be around 150k accounts on FA

dont feel bad about it man, IB just doesnt have the user base yet, it hasnt been around for a decade (or so) like FA has
