Milestones
« on: April 02, 2014, 03:12:57 PM »
I noticed that March has beaten the monthly record for page views, beating the July 2013 total of 466,108 with a new total of 505,510. I guess that makes March the most popular month for the forum so far and the first to beat the half million mark, so congrats to Neven, team and all!
Not bad for early Spring either.

That's total pageviews, and not unique veiws, right?

Wow, half a million in just one month. It could get busy when the melting season gets underway.

And it looks like the record for 'most online' has been broken today: 118. There's a really large number in the stats, but that's some sort of bug.

icefest, you can see the stats here. Or scroll down on the front page, until you the link to see 'more stats'.

Users Online:55
Most Online:694 - August 01, 2013, 06:46:13 PM
Online Today:118

118 is less than 694 so doesn't look like a record to me. I imagine the difference between users online 55 and most online of 694 is mainly due to search engine bots that can on occasion seem to proliferate wildly.

Like I said: "There's a really large number in the stats, but that's some sort of bug." I'm discarding it. Et voilà.  :D

Neven, for me the most interesting statistic on the list is the male/female ratio. I had no idea that this was so predominently a male preserve.

My good wife of many years, who totally "gets" the importance of the issue and is way ahead of me in her search for a sustainable lifestyle commented when I asked her, "Well, you're totally obsessed weather and climate. I prefer simply to look out of the window!"

Maybe one or two of our few female colleagues would have a view. After all, women scientists are pretty influential in the field.

That's because women do all the work, while the men are chatting with each other and fantasizing about new projects.

Within 100 minutes, if not within the hour I expect 5,000,000 total page views to be reached.

Congratulations Neven.

Also another month, another record page views for the month: 517.6k so far this April vs record 505.5k for March 2014.

Congratulations to all the meaningful thread starteres and their followers! 

You were watching more closely than I, crandels. (I looked at 4,999,778, then at 5,000,002.)

It doesn't necessarily mean human views though. I'm finding these forums seem vulnerable to an awful lot of bot activity... presumably because they're a standard and common implementation.

[EDIT] I checked out my numbers as my forum has almost no human activity - I'm showing an average of 1338 page views per day. I doubt even 1% of my page views are human ones. While I daresay ASIF has enough human traffic to shift that percentage a bit, I'm inclined to be cautious around celebrating any stat milestone in this area.

Likewise, I suspect this was the source of the anomalously high 694 most users online here - a rush of bots trying to sign up.

22070 is now a tiddler.

Has now been up to 42538 on 8th July 2014.

Congratulations on over 1,000,000 page views in a single month.

1009753 and most of today still to go.

It's alltogether nice and frightening to cross the Million Mark.

Thanks to all contributors - this forum wouldn't have this success without you.

This tries to be the 70000th message. At least the number in quote says so. Has there been 768 deleted messages already?

I've deleted quite a few spam messages, Pmt111500, but that doesn't matter: 70K comments so far on the ASIF! Let's see if we can get it to 100K before the year is out.

July finished with the highest number of pageviews for any month for this forum: 1335798

Also, I can't thank you enough for allowing regular members to view statistics! ;D Most forums don't allow that and it always irks me slightly.

I didn't even know you could prevent members from seeing the stats, so don't thank me for that.  ;)

And I wonder whether August will top July wrt page views.

And I saw the other day that you have reached the ASIF ultimate member milestone. Congratulations, oh imperatore!

And as of today: 1111 members!

July finished with the highest number of pageviews for any month for this forum: 1335798

August 2016 beat that with 1,369,954.

November 2016 easily passed that with 1,479,086. (Nov 2015 was particularly low so wipneus graph might be needed to explain this.)

It doesn't seem to have slowed down we have passed 1.5 million page views this month with more than 2 days to spare. 1515215 at time of posting.

I congratulate Neven on the forum having over 100,000 posts, and as an engineer I notice relationships between numbers and when the forum reached this milestone, I had 10,526 posts and these numbers have a ratio of almost precisely 9.5.

Don't congratulate me, congratulate the community!  :)

And I can't wait for you to reach 105,260 posts, because that should mean we have passed the 1 million mark.  ;)

Neven, you are too modest.  This is your garden, you're the gardener.  It's flourished, only because you've provided the soil, you've seeded it, you've pulled out the weeds, you've fenced out the predators.  All with the patience of Job and a diligence and perseverance seen only rarely in this world.

Last month finished with a new record high number of views: 2,335,505 (2.335.505 for Euros :P )

One interesting fact is that the number of posts per day/month has not been increasing despite the massive increases in pageviews, meaning less scientifically inclined people are viewing this forum but not posting or registering, which I think is a good thing, as it means the forum is gaining a wider reach while not getting new, malicious posters.
