Well, after an extra 100 posts the fascinating thing is we have no difference in percentages. It does make me wonder where the votes are coming from. But if we accept that all of these are valid and none as fake accounts or ring-ins, the trend seems to be just under 70% approval.
That seems pretty good.
What intrigues me is presumably most of the 31% are long term fans [though I could be wrong - they may have only ever bought the first two issues of Azz' WW and decided they didnt want to continue]. If you go by that idea then there are about 25K folks who seem to buy the book consistently, so that would mean you would be losing about 8000 of that fanbase. Considering the book is still in the 50K region that seems not so bad.
On the other hand, if that 31% were of the fans who bought the book for issue 7, that number doubles. Potentially 15K readers would be leaving in the next few months. That would be a big hit, though I dont expect to see it.
One thing is curious - based on the huge numbers of people reading right now I would have expected the approval rating to be higher. There are a lot of new folks on the boards along with long term posters.
