In the discussion on how to improve SL, we are somehow assuming SL is in a crisis. Still important, but declining edits and pageviews. I took a look at www.alexa.com comparing major go websites, xmp.net (71% SL, 29% GTL), gokgs.com, godiscussions.com and goproblems.com - and got a different impression.
xmp / kgs: xmp is slowly but steadily falling behind in visits (around the same in page views)
xmp / godiscussions: godiscussions seems to decline as well
xmp / goproblems: while xmp is way ahead in visits, goproblems has a lot more pageviews (as people are clicking through lots of problems) - but it is declining faster than xmp
They seem to share the same users, because a burst in activity in one of them (xmp, godiscussions, goproblems) coincides with a low in the other one. KGS and SL generally correlate quite well, with xmp/SL falling steadily behind.
So, I share this with you, instead writing sth more important...

Instead of Alexa you can also try compete.com. Slightly different numbers there (SL is ahead of KGS ?!). It just goes to show that all go sites have too little reach to have accurate numbers - even if they are presumably among the 250000 most visited sites on the web.
While surfing compete.com I found an interesting search:
What do you think is the number one hit on Google for "getting something stuck in your nose"?
