Outlook for the FSP is optomistic
« on: October 07, 2011, 11:13:31 am »

So I went to the signup page and put all the signup data in an excel sheet.  Only included the the sign ups and not the friends or pioneers. Basically the outlook looks good.  The monthly signups have been increasing slowly.  Even if they don't continue to increase we should see the 20k mark by the end of the decade. The dip to 0 early in the chart is because the data for Feb 07 seems to be missing.  Here is the month to month sign up chart:

Fantastic! I love charts and graphs!

The FSP being on John Stossel and Free State Now are partially responsible for that bump in the last few months.

Numbers are no longer relevant.  FSP has shown itself in a very poor light lately, with some very influential people betraying the trust that was vested in them by others in the name of FSP's ideals.  When you have a cat inside a fish tank, putting in more fish isn't going to help...

How so? What are free staters doing to make the movement look bad?

I wish the FSP's website had charts like this. The stats page always seems to be broken.

As far as I know, the stats page isn't broken and there are (or at least were) charts on the FSP website.

Odd, I haven't noticed anything.

Alex Libman the 4th (or is it the 5th?)

Poor light lately?  What are you talking about?

"influential ' people? betraying trust?  Were they on the FSP board?

These charts can't be right. They don't form a smooth line but rather contain many extreme "jumps," like a bumch of signups were dumped in at the same time.

That happens quite frequently, eg, when we go to an event and a bunch of people sign up there on paper. Someone has to later enter the data at a keyboard, and you get a "jump"

Alex, I'm going to restrain myself from adding an eyeroll icon. People here are very happy, living freer than possible anywhere else in the US, and working for more freedom every day -- alongside many great likeminded friends.

If you don't like any particular individual, I suggest you find other people to associate with. While I like at least 90-95% of FSPers, there are a few who aren't personally my cup o' tea. I just don't hang out in those circles.

OK.  I just do the Signup Stats page.  Let me know if you ever see anything broken on it, http://freestateproject.org/about/membership/signup_stats

they also sometimes get approved every 2-3 days causing some jumps.
