I swear, the titles of these topics become dumber every month. Soon I will be forced to say "Statistics of May 2006" or something like that. Anyway, this is a year after I first posted the stats (although 13 months since I first used the counter - after all, if I hadn't counted in March 2005, I wouldn't have been able to post a ranking in April). For that reason, there will also be the stats for the entire last year!

--

The rankings have been reinstated.

--

I. Joining Rate

126 members have joined, and 62 of them posted. This is slight increase from last month, although the number of posting newbies has dropped by one.

Since the oldest available table in May 2005 (this is the best I can do, I'm afraid; it'll be the time period from May 2005 to April 2006 through all of this), 1224 members have joined, and 732 of them have posted.

Monthly Overview:
April 2005: 151/87
May 2005: 78/43
June 2005: 147/91
July 2005: 153/88
August 2005: 108/62
September 2005: 91/52
October 2005: 81/43
November 2005: 83/41
December 2005: 85/52
January 2006: 136/86
February 2006: 100/59
March 2006: 113/63
April 2006: 126/62

II. Activity

There are 62 new active members, and 256 older active members, for a total community of 318 members. This is a slight decrease from last month, in all three numbers.

Since the first statistics topic in April 2005, 732 active members have joined and 577 older members have posted again, for a total active community of 1309 members.

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)
February 2006: 268 (209)
March 2006: 324 (263)
April 2006: 318 (256)

III. Postage

A total of 6802 posts were written this month, which is a huge decrease from last month, but still the second highest this year.

6802 posts comes to 21.39 posts per member, 221.07 posts per day, and .695 posts per member per day. All these numbers are above average, but far lower than the record high of last month.

A total of 64903 posts were written since May 2005, which comes to 194.20 posts per day, 49.58 posts per active member, and 0.148 per member per day.

Monthly Overview:
April 2005: 7576 | 186 | 21 | 0.47
May 2005: 4723 | 169 | 18 | 0.52
June 2005: 7267 | 251 | 22.4 | 0.77
July 2005: 8691 | 271.6 | 24.7 | 0.77
August 2005: 5917 | 190.9 | 20.1 | 0.65
September 2005: 5412 | 174.6 | 21.1 | 0.68
October 2005: 4477 | 149.3 | 19.5 | 0.65
November 2005: 4389 | 141.6 | 18.8 | 0.61
December 2005: 3958 | 131.9 | 16.6 | 0.55
January 2006: 6580 | 204.3 | 19.8 | 0.61
February 2006: 4555 | 153.24 | 17 | 0.57
March 2006: 7355 | 272.56 | 22.7 | 0.84
April 2006: 6802 | 221.07 | 21.39 | 0.70

IV. Ranking

The top ten of this month are here. I do not feel the least shame for being top spammer for the third month in a row, but still I will try to cut it down in the future.

+------+------+------------------------------------+-------+------------+
| Rank | # | Name | Posts | This Month |

The full rankings are here as always.

Goodbye, and happy easter to all of you. :)

It was meant to have more of a shock/deterrent effect; and for that it was sufficient to announce the stats were taken down for an indeterminate period.

No, I didn't specifically plan on giving them back in April when I took them away in March. I just thought that keeping the rankings disabled would no longer be effective, if it had ever been so.

After the last rankings post, I thought I would need over 200 to make the top 10. The drop off is probably due to Avernum 4 being out in both versions. The speculation that it was the cause will be confirmed if the numbers don't increase next month. Maybe things will quiet down until Geneforge 4.

Of course with Thuryl back the numbers may increase. Could a single person cause a spike without doing something to cause a ban? I don't mean double posting, posting something in every thread just to inflate count, or other annoying behavior like polls or messages that should be PM.

Spam!

Um. Thanks for the stats, Aran.

Spam!

—Alorael, who is at least honest about it. Come on, how many times can you congratulate yourself for having posted some number of times greater than 0 in the last month?

Looks like the resolve to end the spamming contest lasted only one month.

(This is post 1 out of 6 posts I'll need to make today to get on my way to top 10 next month.)

For it too has the power to kill.
However well placed word, unlike a well placed sword,
Can also have the power to heal.

It's the Join statement used for the ranking. I displayed it for debugging, and never bothered to take it off again - it's not really especially secret though, so it doesn't do any harm.

Oh, and Scorpius just asked me why the heck I still post here, since Spiderweb's games "suck" and you all are "retarded" (which apparently doesn't include me, or he wouldn't be asking).

From Scorpius, this is great praise. I am flattered.
