Exposure these days is only the same 7,000 unique visitors each day, give or take 5%.
Hits these days are a little harder to pin down. Up to mid September 2020 it was very consistently 140,000 each day, give or take 10%.
After mid September 2020, the total hits each day began varying wildly from just below 130,000 to over 200,000 on any given day; with no discernible correlation to forum activity (Blue Fez excluded).
N.B. During Tango01's spells in the "Dawghouse" hits per day did not fall...they went up, unique visitor numbers did not.
Conclusion: If you pay a dozen transpinay's to work randomly at computers, you may not get the complete works of Shakespeare but you can probably grift the advertising budget of enough miniatures companies to keep TMP going.
