2 million growth per day?

Yesterday, I had 16 million Kesshites. Today, I have 18 million.

Is this because I have two issues per day - and I'm getting the right number of issues - or is it an error?

PS: I checked the FAQ and the Common Problems Link. It's either not there or I'm too tired. Sorry if I missed something.

It has nothing to do with the number of issues you answer. Your population increases by 1 million a day for the first few days, then by 2 million a day for a bit, then 3 million a day...then when it hits a certain level (can't remember what, exactly), it increases by between 5-8 million a day forever more.

I've read on the forum somewhere that this is because Max Barry (our creator and Lord) didn't think people would play the game for any length of time, so didn't think population would matter so much. Now there are players approaching populations of 10 billion...

That makes sense. Thank you! :)
