Found it pretty interesting. XDIndeed, time zones have an impending effect on the habitability of threads. For one, the ones living in the far east rarely gets enough limelight whereas the ones living far in the western side of the world enjoy near constant presence of active members- in stark contrast to the pitiful easterners who have to make do with dozens of friends either waking up very early or is an insomniac. There is no solution to this problem, as the circadian cycle must always be kept at a constant, and the fact that BMGF herself have her own circadian rhythm. From morning to noon, the number of members active is usually half of that when nighttime comes. Whereas noontime to afternoon time, the members will dwindle to a third of the usual population. Most often, members can be found wandering at nighttime, which is the time when the forums are bustling and lively, contrary to the lifeless and desolate past midnight. Then after nighttime, where insomniacs dwell the shadowy thronged streets, the population regressed to 1/4 of the population and the cycle starts again at morning.
From 6AM - 12PM: 1/2 population
From 12PM - 6PM: 1/3 population
From 6PM - 12AM: Full population online
From 12AM - 6AM: < 1/4 population
So if you're living on the other side of the world, just reverse this rhythm:
From 6AM to 12PM: Full population
From 12PM to 6PM: 1/4 population
From 6PM to 12AM: 1/3 population
From 12AM to 6AM: 1/2 population
