Hi everyone. By my count, there were 8,301 submissions to the Audio Portal in April 2020, the highest monthly total since August 2009. Before about 6 months ago, the number of monthly submissions was stable at around 5,000. The sudden increase is even more noticeable visually (see the graph below).
If anyone has any insights into why this is the case, please let me know. I'm always looking for evidence to refute the popular refrain that "Newgrounds is dying", but I'm also just really curious. Thanks! ^_^
