    8000 Members today?

    We are now at 7981 members. Will it be today or tomorrow we hit the magic 8000?
    I hope we hit 10,000 users by BETT as the banners etc will be proclaiming this fact as I have to get them ordered soon!
    We have been doubling our membership every year since we started 3 years ago, so we aren't doing too bad

    At this rate we'll soon be a world government, unless the Elvis impersonators beat us to it.

    Hmmm, how many of the 8000 members are actual frequent visitors though? And how many just signed up for a quick fix?

    8000 sure is a lot, but I would estimate it as a lot less than 1000 that visit on a daily basis.

    Well actually according to the members tabs there are:

    4270 (142 Pages *30 to a page + 10) members who have never made a single post

    6612 (220P * 30 + 12) members who have made less than 10 posts

    7332 (244 * 30 + 12) members who have made less than 100 posts.

    Which leaves (at time of writing) 655 "regular" members

    There are some publicly available stats at the bottom of the main forums page which back up your maths:

    Yes they are probably more active with the active/regular members as mine doesnt take into account how recently they signed up and how much they've posted in that time.

    By the way the analysis wasnt meant to belittle the amount of members. Mentioning how many we have will only serve to gain new members, who will hopefully stay and make a decent contribution.

    Post count really is not that important. My boss for example does not post often but he is a regular. Also he only logs in when he needs to thus has an account but may seem to have been a while since he was on.
    No other forum really cares about the nitty gritty, its just the total.
    I have lots of "idle" accounts that never get removed and I would be annoyed if they were.

    @Ric_ - Is that 1500 individual visitors? Or 1500 page hits possibly from the same visitors? If it's the first, I have to say then that is impressive especially during the summer hols

    That's unique visitors. Usually we push around 6000 unique visitors per day during term time, but page views are down even now as we are all very busy with our summer work. Strange just how hard we work during the holidays.

    I can easily believe those figures. This site comes up quite high in google searches even more so when you add terms like "pupil" and "student" with the techy question!

    As DB says, that is unique visits. Impressive considering it was a SUNDAY during the summer hols.
