I played KoGaMa in 2014, it's very good to remember these moments... but i never signed up, the first time i had an account, Kogama Br on 22 February 2018, but i lost my account and created one in WWW, on 2018 too, and i'm still using this account, i am at level 32.
3 people said that they joined in 2011? Really? I don't believe it, except for Daniel's vote.
The 2012 one should be credible for the most part, but I also kinda don't believe that one in a way. I feel like at least 1 person is faking their vote.
Three claim to have joined in 2011. Given that the U.S. Server didn't quite exist then (Rasmus, user #1, joined March 1, 2012), that limits us to O.G. (original gamers =p) from the EU. I checked, and user #390 joined January 1, 2012; user #389 joined December 31, 2011. That's only 389 possible players, and given the sheer number of people who joined and only played once, it seems unlikely to me that any non-developer user from 2011 is still around. So, yeah, I tend to agree with you on that one.
As for 2012, I don't know. It amazes me how many responded "2014." It declines in either direction from there ... I guess about six years is the sweet spot for the tester community?

I kinda wish we had more easily accessible user statistics for the Kogama websites. It'd be interesting to see just how many active players we have (based on account activity in, say, the past 30 days) from the different years.
Please, for the love of all that is good, give your thread a title. Question, Suggestion, My New Idea, Help, etc. are not titles. Ambiguity is human; specificity is divine. (You want the second one.)
Take a brief glance at the first page of the Suggestions board before you post your brilliant, unique, magnificent proposal. Chances are there are already six dozen "delete project button" suggestions out there, and five are active right now.
