Topic - Why were fewer routes logged on UKC in 2012 than 2011?

deacondeacon - on 04 Feb 2013
Over the last decade the amount of routes logged into the ukc database has increased year on year until 2012:

2004 38,817
2005 57,674
2006 113,287
2007 172,180
2008 228,829
2009 307,209
2010 393,087
2011 456,236
2012 406,261

I was just wondering if anyone knew why 2012 has significantly less routes added compared to 2011.
A few ideas I thought of where that the weather was worse than other years (I personally didn't notice it being particularly worse than usual), or perhaps people are using other online logbooks.
Another thought I had is that people may add all their routes from a previous year in one go, and these haven't been added yet.

I personally use the ukc logbooks more than any other part of the website, and believe they are a great resource to the community. It would be a real shame if the numbers dwindled as user input is such an integral part to making it work.
Any thoughts?
