Anyone know? With so many people on Lumberjocks, projects come and go very quickly. What’s the best time to post in order to get the most views of your project?

I wish I knew the answer, Alan. I am pretty good at finding the right time to post just before someone who posts 14 projects at once.

It’s kind of a shame, but not really anyone’s fault. It’s just a side effect of the site becoming so popular.

In the old days when I first joined, you could post a project and expect it to stay on the front page for a day or two. Pretty much everyone who was a regular would get a look at it and probably make a comment. Now I find I can’t even keep up with viewing every project, let alone commenting on many of the great ones I’d like to comment on.
