2016 is now over and again it’s time for some reflection.
One of the big things for us in 2016 was reaching a milestone of 100 000 songs, further solidifying VocaDB as the definite source of Vocaloid/UTAU discography information. Thanks to all of our editors for that! The number of edits and songs contributed per day has remained very stable during 2015 and 2016.
25 457 new songs added (compared to 22 500 in 2015).
918 new albums added (1 330 in 2015).
826 users joined (790 in 2015).
700 890 visits by 388 196 users recorded by analytics (657 675 visits by 360 403 users in 2015).
Note that the song and album numbers also include songs and albums that were released before 2016 but were not added to VocaDB until in 2016.

DECO’s song being #1 probably isn’t a surprise given how long he’s been producing and the size of his fanbase, but it’s interesting to note that the second most popular song of 2016 on VocaDB was an UTAU song. The difference between #1 and #2 was only 2 points by the way. There’s also another song with Yamine Renri by Police Piccadilly in top 10.
