I'm pretty sure I remember this time.  It was the time when bots started taking memberships.  Changes were made to stop automatic membership and play resumed as normal.  If you have access to the data I think you'll find a lot of 1 post robots.

Edit: sorry, misread the post - commenting on the blip around 2007/2008

Triathlon changed. In 2010/11 every IM was selling out in minutes. Doesn't happen like that any more - the popularity dwindled.

Most people only sign up once.  (With a few notable exceptions) 

once they are in they are in. 

As Trinube says, I think the graph from 2010 is probably an accurate reflection of the relative numbers doing triathlon.

Oh and one thing you will find is that the numbers of signed up members in no way accurately reflects the reach of trannys. Just wait till something controversial is posted and you will hear from far and wide in no time. 

At any time if you look at the numbers there is generally 2 “guests” viewing for every member.

That's why I think embracing other endurance stuff might widen the base?

Indeed - certainly can't hurt.

Not always guests though. I've forgotten my password, so when I look at Trannies on the way home on the phone, I'm there as a guest. My laptop remembers my password though, so then I'm a member. :)

Nah. I'll just forget it again. I should be doing something more constructive while I'm on the train, like sleeping or playing candy crush. :)
