5,000,000 Hits


Sankaku Complex has now received over 5,000,000 page views since its inception in late April, gaining the last million in short order indeed.

Even serving more than 80,000 pages daily (and reaching a record 100,000 a few days ago), and now with some 13,000 daily users, it looks as if growth can long continue, so if anything a redoubling of the efforts which go into this site is required, something gladly undertaken. In fact, lately traffic has been more or less doubling month on month…

With this, I am definitely stopping the 1,000,000 hit announcements, though I am sure there will be other milestones worthy of mention.

Thanks to all those who have contributed to Sankaku Complex’s burgeoning popularity, whether by dint of visiting, linking here, commenting or otherwise.

I should also like to encourage anyone who has not yet had a chance to participate in Sankaku Channel to give it a try; this side of the site is intended as the future (and current) hub for the more purely visual elements of the site, and now has more than 2,000 daily users itself.

You can find everything featured on the main site there, as well as plenty of interesting images which sadly do not get a look in, and navigate through all of them in a manner vastly more convenient than that of a traditional image board, or the galleries on the main site. Whether tagging, discussing or contributing images, your contributions are greatly appreciated.

Special thanks are also due to BuggyBY, LordChair, Nahata, and Quen, for all their efforts of late on the Channel.

In case anyone has missed the suggestion (perhaps increasingly unlikely), might I suggest to webmasters that participating in the Sankaku Complex Feed Exchange could be a mutually beneficial arrangement, especially at these levels of traffic. Feel free to get in contact regarding this from the page in question.

There should be plenty of interesting developments to come soon enough; in particular I am evaluating the options with regard to upgrading the comment system/forum integration, and the matter of soliciting additional contributors grows ever near (feel free to get in contact if you have the appropriate language aptitudes in English and Japanese, there will be cake).

As always, get in touch directly or leave a comment if you have any queries, suggestions or feedback; all are greatly appreciated.

    Gongrats to Sankaku and all those that helped it to materialize.

    I am new here but I was stricken immediately from the high quality artwork that is depicted in its articles and galleries. Once I stumbled on this site it became one of my favorites and visit it at least once per day.

    Keep up the good work! :)

    I can really see why this site is so popular!

    This is the best anime blog since RIUVA and Dark "Slave to Gundam 00" Mirage combined, and it came completely from the heavens, without a word, and just started firing them crazy lasers come April!

    Back then site got immediate hype and accreditation among anime bloggers, and it was all well deserved.

    Whereas blogs like Danny Choo have comprable levels of content, his site is too much of an information overload, and is inundated with articles for some reason that I either don't care about or won't give the time of day to read. Much like NEWTYPE. Give me a slimmer (and cheaper) magazine any day!
    Just the facts.

    Sankaku content is relevant to me and my lifestyle, engaging, and always fun to read.

    Plus the Great Artefact always has the most perfect picture(s) for every entry!
    Same as for this very post.
    ...Hawt. Mmm.

    I can certify that whenever I open an old browser session, any browser, nearly any session, there are still four to fifteen Sankaku windows open.

    Thank you, Artefact. Keep up the good work!

    There are times where I spend longer finding an appropriate image than I do writing the actual post... Clearly good presentation goes beyond simply ensuring things are properly written.

    My congrats are a little bit late but i don't want to miss the oportunity to say "Well Done!" to all the Sankaku Complex staff.

    Sometimes i don't post message because the thread are too much eroge for my taste, but i do my best to write in another post of my interest, because english is not my mother language.

    So, i think a lot of those new 1.000.000 hits are from 2 really great threads: the crazy guy who wants marry with Mikuru-chan and Nagi as a second had waifu.

    I'm sure i will link Sankaku many more times in my blog than another blog before.

    Greetings, cheers... for many many million of hits.

    I think my comments keep getting eaten up!

    Either that or your numerous posts have me confused as to where I left my comments...

    Anyway, great job so far, though once in a while you need to show your true skills by posting original images! Hehe... not that I'm egging you onto commit crime.

    What can I say? I'm one of the people who log in several times a day. I'm a full-time student, so I don't have much time to hang on /a/ and the likes of it, so having a useful tidbits-blog is absolutely necessary. And Sankaku certainly fills that role for me.

    Grats Sankaku!

    Finishing up that Beako doujinshi on the Channel literally as I type, the site's mascot in an ero-doujin is good as anything for a 5 Million hit celebration. ^^

    Feel free to see it before I bump a few favored pages:

    I come here every day for loli, anime news, ecchi screencaps, weird Japan-related news, loli, high quality artwork, Idol pictures, manga, loli, the list goes on.
    There's always something great here and because of that 6,000,000 doesn't seem that far away.

    A women candid gallery like that of Sankaku Channel would be great.

    a pity that all those great galleries like Concealed Oppai Gallery, Schoolgirl Bra Summer Gallery and many others aren't consolidated into a channel.

    can also consider the options of rating / leaving comments on the pictures like those 2ch bbs.
