Traffic shows as down 19% year over year on on tool:

http://www.trafficestimate.com/wizardofodds.com

Many have made comments and complaints, but this is the way it appears the site will be. I don't think it is dead or will be dead, but it is not as lively...at least from my point of view.

Edit:

Sorry...this site is down nearly 26%:

http://www.trafficestimate.com/wizardofvegas.com

Both of the sites are down a lot, but we have no idea what that amounts to on the revenue side...how many people went to an online gambling site by clicking here?

Wizardof Odds is down because the forum is here on Wizardof Vegas.

What is the traffic like for this site?

It's different from it used to be. We're still adjusting to "the new normal".

With any change like this, there is some user attrition, and there is an influx of new users. Hopefully the new users aren't all spambots, and bring up some interesting topics.

If you think the forum needs more traffic, be the change you wish to see in the forum.
May the cards fall in your favor.

I feel that this forum is different not solely due to the... less than savory postings that have been happening, but also due to the subtraction of some valued members. My math skills aren't close to what many of the members here have, but it seems like if you remove some of the more entertaining/reputable/veteran members and add some members with less benevolent intentions, you're gonna have a bad time.

With that said, I think this forum still has retained a lot of good members, and it's still a pleasure reading from it.

The forum is down because of the changes. People will get used to it then new people who join will get used to it. And it will start picking up again. It's still important. People get useful information from here.

I can't tell, because I've only been here a few months. We got enough smart people.

The forum has always been here. What does the location of the forum have to do with traffic on the odds site?

Not even close. We need more.

I want to learn things. I find that easier when there are smart people that I disagree with having discussions. If there were more of them here, I could learn more.
