These stats should have been posted on the seventeenth, meaning yesterday. However, yesterday was the day of a somewhat difficult presentation I had to give on a PHP program I'd written (sadly not this one, or it'd have been much more interesting), and I couldn't do anything in the afternoon except sleep. I fell down around 18:00 in the afternoon and rose from the dead at 3 AM.

I had set the script to start its work before I fell asleep, but there was a malfunction and it now I needed to start from scratch. Ugh.

...

[[8:23: Actual stats will be in in... one hour. Hopefully.]]

Edit 8:54: Two hours.

Edit: 9:57 One hour and thirty-four minutes. Here we go.

As before, the statistics can also be seen on ermarian.net (note there is a malfunction right now that I'll fix soon).

Note: All but the last two topics have been purged. The rest are available on PPP3, but I don't have time to change the links now

I. Joining Rate

136 members have joined us, and 86 of them have posted. This is in stark contrast to the statistics of recent months, and actually the highest joining rate since July 2005 (153 new members).

May 2005: 78/43
June 2005: 147/91

January 2006: 136/86

II. Activity

333 members have posted in total this month; of these, 86 joined this month and 247 are older members. This, too, is higher than in the last five months. Probably due to Avernum IV.

Monthly Overview:
April 2005: 360 (273)
May 2005: 262 (219)
June 2005: 325 (232)
July 2005: 352 (264)
August 2005: 293 (231)
September 2005: 256 (204)
October 2005: 229 (186)
November 2005: 234 (193)
December 2005: 239 (187)
January 2006: 333 (247)

III. Postage

6580 posts this month, 66% more than last month. This is 204.27 posts per day, and 19.76 posts per member, and 0.613 posts per member per day.

Monthly Overview:
April 2005: 7576 | 186 | 21 | 0.47
May 2005: 4723 | 169 | 18 | 0.52

I swear these statistics take longer ever frigging month. Last month it was 6 hours, now it's been over 8.

Page fixed. Now it should all work.

The fance search option will have to wait a while, but there's still the older search page.

Whee! Back in my rightful position, and by a considerable margin. I imagine that'll change soon, though; my academic workload's only going to increase from here on in.

And the brief margin I had over Kel has vanished too. I thought I had posted so much in the recent weeks...

Speaking of rivalries, I've now pulled ahead of TM by several hundred posts, and at this rate he won't be closing in on me any time soon.

Wait, wasn't the point of this originally to discourage people from excessive posting? Whoops.

As far as rivalries in posting goes, I win again. Although, it is a bit one-sided. I barely have to try, too.

Upon first reading the name of this topic, instead of reminding me of your custom title, it made me think you were making a joke about being pregnant since this is usually 'that time of month'. Intentional... or lucky coincidence?

Indeed. I had anticipated a large drop, but #101 wasn't exactly the number I had contemplated. At least I'm technically contributing to overall active members by making a post, here and there, when I'm bored, but I'm almost surprised at Stareye actually racing up the ranks and posting.

Given that I am quite male and rather happy with that, pregnancy would be more than a little out of the norm for me. o_O

Edit: I have just finished writing a rather complex search page for the database. Flaws: It can display only member number, name and the field being searched, it can take only one search criterion, it cannot sort and it can display only one page of results (up to 500). But all that might be fixed soon.

Edit: Very useful, especially when you try to round up all your multiple accounts. Some of us have a lot of those...

Edit2: The slight mistake in the field value for matches and contains are now fixed. Multiple words will now be correctly carried over when the form is submitted.

Whoah... 7th. How did that one happen? (Though I see that I've been bested by Thralni yet again...)

At this rate, I'll hit 1k in three weeks...

Thus why it would be a joke. :P Metaphorically, though, you could be 'expecting'. Preparing to give birth to the monthly stats, whose labor for, as you stated, has become more painful over the months. But, it seems it was unintentional, like the first "That time of month". So just pay me no nevermind.

128 for me. I'd post more, but Exile 3 and the contemplation of getting to work on my scenario again keeps me off. That and basketball can be very time-consuming.

As a side note, though, I am the only member above 4000 to have amassed 2000 posts. Yay! :P

I really have to increase my surreptitious posting and deleting.

In the meantime, though, I have been reminded of a priceless passage from Daniel Pinkwater.

Oh, shoot, you're right. I was only searching up to 3000. Obviously nobody could be that far ahead. :P Sorry, Kel.

I am the the first member over 4500 to have more than 2000. :P

Jeez, 54th. I really haven't been here at all over the last couple of months. I will probably start coming back here again once school starts, and if they finally get the computers going right it might give me something worthwhile to do do during class.

According to the link, I've now beat out TM for spot number 10 (at least for now). Weird.
