Double KO: That is fine. I can add you to the list if you would like and if it turns out you can't make it, you can say so and I can take you back off. But that is up to you.

Because I have nothing better to do I'm sure The New Guy will finish itself
, I went back through every case comp since August 2010 ("A Comedic Case") and counted the entrants listed on the lead post (minus dropouts). Yes, this is an imperfect method dependent on comp judges striking out everyone who didn't submit a case, but even locked in my house, not finishing cases, I don't have time to dig through 1,198 pages (yes, I did apparently have time to add those up) to determine exactly how many actual submissions each of the competitions got.
According to this count, the highest entrant count was "trololololololololololo - In Memory of Eduard Khil" with 17 entrants in summer 2012, followed by "Canon? SCREW CANON!" in fall 2011 with 16 entrants (15 of which were beaten by some random noob with an explosion avatar coming out of nowhere at the last second)
The most recent competition to have 11 entrants was Acid Rain and some guy with an explosion avatar's "I Want To Believe!" in late 2016 (though two comps shortly before that, "Never Trust The Narrator" and "Ace Everything Else Online" had 14 and 13 entrants, respectively). So we are definitely at a 3-year high right now.
Of course, raw entrant numbers aren't everything. The comp of mine I consider the most successful is "The Best Worst Comp Ever", which had three entries (plus one troll entry) that were complete, immediately released and all REALLY good. Well, bad. Whatever. The point is that quality is nice and you should all be making really excellent cases in addition to running up this comp's statistics by posting more
. At the moment, I don't think we're in a new Golden Age of AAO Comps, but we do seem to be doing pretty well, and all it took was forcing everyone to stay home for several months.
