Notes on the data:

I used data from the Wayback Machine and socialblade.com to build this, but the data is incomplete. Data values are interpolated where data is missing so some rapid rises may be smoothed out, and some channels may jump into the lists. Some channel names have changed over time. For example, ChessVibes is now ChesscomNews and Satranc Mediya is now Chess24 Turkce. There is also no comprehensive list of chess channels to draw on; I was as comprehensive as I could be based on my knowledge
