    How Many People Do you Think Read Homestuck?

    I have been searching around for this answer, but never got one.
    So I've seen forums of people asking what they would do if they saw a Homestuck fan in real life- so are we that rare?

    Is there a good guess as to how many are out there?

    Give an answer, or your best guesstimate. I have no clue

    Looking before the hiatus started, about 700K unique pageviews a day. That's assuming people check daily, which I would guess is the lesser part of everyone who has ever read Homestuck. So maybe 2m people who would call themselves fans.

    However there are only 30k members registered on this forum, so there's far fewer who would call it a big part of their lives.

    Only kinda related, but if you look at the ad stats on the same page, though there is high variance, MSPA recieves $50 a day or over $18k a year in ad revenue. Considering the shirt, merchandise and music sales to even a small fraction of that 1-2m audience added to that revenue and we can see why Andrew can be supported by the site as well as pay the server costs. But it does take those very high viewer numbers to be able to do that.

    And hiring people to cosplay at cons, etc. But now the plan has been revealed, we have to think of something else.

    Nothing has been revealed because this is all quite clearly nonsense conspiracy talk. And if it were true, all persons or person involved in prematurely revealing this facade would be reprimanded severely by his, her, or their fellow co-conspirators.

    Homestuck in general is really just an entirely convoluted money making scam. The MSPA forums are going to pull off the perfect crime.

    Trust no one.

    It is certainly the perfect crime.

    Edit: Wow. I didn't even realize the above comment mentioned it being the perfect crime as well.

    None. Hussie employs a massive botnet to garner pageviews.

    None of us are real. We are all figments of his imagination.

    THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE, PEOPLE.

    We're really a clique of bored, determined millionaires who want to see how long they can keep Andrew afloat by buying all his merchandise without him guessing what we're up to. But then, you knew that already.
    What will you do?

    seriously though, I'll use my college's undergraduate population as a sample size of the world population as a whole (albeit results will be slightly skewed due to the lack of deviation in age range). There are ~20,000 undergrads on campus; and I know, on campus, there are about 200 Homestuck fans that are more than "casual" (i.e. more than a passing interest in the comic). That's about 1% of the population.

    The world population is about 6 billion, which means that there are about 60 million Homestuck fans on the planet. (Obviously this number is wrong!)

    tl;dr: nocturne sucks at statistics

    I do think there are far more people from America, UK and other English speaking countries though. They're more likely to read English literature like MSPA.

    Take my class for example. I'm sure some of them could enjoy Homestuck if it was in Dutch, but they hate reading things in different languages than Dutch.

    Hence the need for translating Homestuck.

    Exactly. That's the great thing about the translation projects.

    Re: How Many People Do you Think Read Homestuck?

    What I'm wondering is which state has the most Homestuck fans out of all of them. America seems to have the distinct majority, but where in America is the majority of the majority? Which state has the most homestuck?

    How did you find all these people.
    My college also has 20,000 undergrads, but outside of a dozen Homestuck-reading friends, I've only run into three other people who could fall under the "more than a passing interest" category. Is there some MSPA Skull and Bones equivalent that's making its underground intercollegiate rounds? Some discreet pin to attach to your collar and flash at each other in class?

    And if it's not creepy, where is your school? I don't know if being in California makes other students slightly too cool to be concerned with webcomics or if my fan-radar just needs a tuneup or what.

    The last report I revived from my specially designed worm virus indicates that casual MSPA readership was at 10,256,124,130 computers. That was on April 20th, but I haven't received any information since then and I'm getting worried. None of the anti virus software has reacted to it, but it's like the data for the worm was simultaneously corrupted on every piece of storage media it existed on.
