    Yearly stats update - part one

    These used to be posted every six months but part 1 is now posted annually on or about Dec 29 or 30, with part 2 sometime in the next week or so.

    Total posts: 416,623
    Top 10 posters: 164,151 which is 39.4% (+0.4%) of total posts
    However "total posts" includes correspondence game posts of which there are now 37,708. Top 10 posters total does not include correspondence game posts.

    Posts since last update: 14,588
    1660 accounts (+56) have undeleted posts (about 66 of these are hydras or spammers, mostly banned).

    Post-rate since last update excluding correspondence games: 39.9 ppd (up 5%)
    (Post-rate for a certain other forum excluding correspondence games for this period: about 2.4 ppd (down 59%).)

    Note that these figures are for undeleted posts on CC only (may include some deleted posts on other forum) and do not include spam.

    Capablanca-Fan was the most active poster in both halves of the year.

    Posters from top 60 by postcount currently not active for >1 month:
    (not active = no login, no posts, no proxy posts - or permanently banned)

    Note: Sadly, member Bereaved (35th on the top poster list) passed away during the year and is much missed. As the purpose of this section is to gauge how well the forum is or isn't doing as concerns high-postcount posters choosing to stay active, I won't be including posters who have passed away in this section, unless they had been on the list at the time of their death.

    Posters from top 60 by postcount logging in in last month, but not posting:

    (There aren't any.)

    NB A no-post period of six months is required for inclusion in the latter list unless an account has been suspended or there is other strong reason to consider poster inactive as a poster.

    The number of inactive (in some sense) top-60 accounts by postcount rose by four to 32 during this period. Six accounts joined the inactive list (some of which have been on and off it several times before so may just be on long orbits). Two reactivated. All three accounts classed as lurkers last time transferred to the main inactive list although one of those posted in the interim. In all six currently "inactive" accounts posted during the year and another four logged in.

    I'll do the other half sometime in the next week. As usual corrections, comments etc welcome but don't even think about quoting the whole thing for a one-line reply.

    Yearly stats review part two - posting stats

    2017 was another quiet year in posting stat terms, but was the first year to beat the previous year's total since 2008. The forum was most active in July, June and January and least active in February and November. The forum was running slightly behind last year's average until early July and then slightly ahead of it thereafter.

    These figures are for posts per day total (including CC game posts).

    Mean posts per day: 40.3 (second lowest for 2004-17)

    Median posts per day: 37 (equal lowest)

    There were three days with 100+ posts, the most since 2004

    Most commonly recorded daily postcount: 23 (lowest for 2004-17)

    Month with most posts: July (1709), ranked 116th out of 168.

    Month with fewest posts: February (863), second lowest on record

    Day with most posts: January 12 (124)

    Day with fewest posts: November 18 (8). Eight posts is the equal lowest in forum history and has now happened four times.

    Most days in a row with 50+ posts: June 28 - July 9 (13)

    Most days in a row with <50 posts: April 12 - May 23, 42

    Average posts by day for the year (long term average in brackets):

    Thursday 42.4 (83.9)
    Tuesday 42.3 (87.6)
    Friday 42.1 (80.5)
    Wednesday 41.8 (85.0)
    Monday 39.6 (87.2)
    Sunday 39.2 (79.7)
    Saturday 34.8 (76.5)

    This is the first time in 14 years that Thursday has been the busiest day and the seventh time Saturday has been last. The days from Tuesday to Friday all beat last year's average.

    Still to do the top ten threads (etc) lists.

    Jan 5 (6 posts) was surprisingly the quietest day in the history of the forum since the merge with the old ACF BB. (There were some quieter days in 2003 before the ACF BB was merged in).

    It was also my brother's 50th birthday. The last two days also seemed to have been pretty quiet. I spent them driving 1400km across three states!

    Yes, postcounts since were in the l20s, including three cases of 25 in four days (which I think is just the second time the same postcount has appeared three times out of four.)

    The rapid exchange of posts regarding whether it is OK to call a GM a patzer caused the fifth-largest postcount spike in forum history. A postcount spike occurs when a day's postcount is proportionally much higher than the two days surrounding it:

    8.144 Feb 28 2017 (26-77-28)
    7.929 April 3 2015 (27-89-37)
    7.490 Dec 13 2004 (101-388-199)
    7.373 April 11 2014 (12-41-19)
    7.260 April 19 2018 (30-66-20)
    7.095 Aug 18 2007 (22-80-41)
    7.020 Apr 14 2016 (38-49-9)
    7.008 June 15 2012 (18-77-47)
    6.900 April 25 2012 (15-69-44)
    6.793 Nov 24 2017 (19-44-15)

    Some other recent-ish records:

    * Jan 5 2018 (6 posts) was the quietest day in the modern history of the forum.
    * The week ending March 22 2018 (105 posts) was the quietest week in the modern history of the forum, the previous record low being 118, excluding weeks where the forum was offline for part of the week for technical reasons.
