    was that when the doeberl was on?
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    I've zapped the old poll from this thread as it's way out of date (for anyone interested we currently have 839 hydra accounts banned but the number that have been deleted would add at least a few hundred more.)

    Six-monthly forum stats update is likely to be posted tonight or tomorrow.

    50. JGB (last post 06-03-2010)

    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 is steady at 18 since last update. One account left each of the lurker list and the main list by falling out of the top 60 posters. Three accounts joined the main list and one account joined the lurker list, two accounts previously on the main list reemerged (one by proxy) and another logged in and was transferred to the lurker list. Of the 13 accounts on both the last list and the previous, only two on the lurker list logged on during the last 6 months, but one posted using another account (perhaps by mistake since the post was deleted).

    Note re activity of firegoat7: I am considering firegoat7 to have been an active member of this forum by proxy on 15-12-2011 since on that date he asked and caused antichrist to post on his behalf. He is therefore removed from the inactive list.

    2011 posting stats review

    2011 was another quietish year in posting stat terms, about the same as 2010. That said, through to early April posting rates were up as much as 30 posts/day on 2010, then things got very quiet from May to October, then picked up a lot in the last couple of months. A major influence on postcounts is whether or not antichrist is banned but that won't stop us flicking him whenever he becomes too much of a nuisance.

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

    Mean posts per day: 79.4 (lowest for 2004-11 but only down 1.3 ppd on last year)

    Median posts per day: 75 (ditto, by 1 post)

    Proportion of days with 100+ posts: 27% (higher than 2010)

    Most commonly recorded daily postcount: 78 (higher than in 2010 and 2005 not that this proves much)

    Month with most posts: April (3710), ranked 32nd out of 96.

    Month with fewest posts: October (1231), lowest on record

    Day with most posts: April 7 (198), the =189th highest on record.

    Day with fewest posts: September 26 (15), the 2nd lowest on record since the forum proper started in Jan 2004.

    Most days in a row with 100+ posts: April 1 to 8 (8), the =35th longest

    Most days in a row with <100 posts: Aug 30 to Nov 6 (69), the longest on record

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

    Sunday 83.4 (101.5)
    Tuesday 80.85 (115.4)
    Wednesday 80.79 (112.4)
    Saturday 79.4 (96.4)
    Monday 78.65 (113.5)
    Thursday 78.63 (110.3)
    Friday 74.1 (103.8)

    There was again very little variation between days.

    Thanks for the info Kevin.

    I miss TheJoker. Maybe he'll be back one of these election years.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Yes; he just suddenly stopped posting and logging on in Sep 2010 for no readily apparent reason. Maybe he will someday pop up again just as inexplicably.

    An informed poster, with a list to port. Sadly missed

    The 2012 Aus Champs thread was just outside the top ten on this list at the time I compiled it but has since moved into 10th position presently with 34649 views, finally kicking out the second of the two Mt Buller threads that had been sitting in the top ten by views list for ages. It is bound to move higher and will probably appear on the next list in about 4th place.

    An oddity on those lists was that "Does God Exist?" gained 27,000 "views" in the last six months despite having only 10 new posts.

    Jan 2 with 159 posts was again the highest since Apr 7 2011.

    but you could take in the associated threads and this year's Aust champ would dwarf many of others

    This year is nothing; in 2006 there was an Aus Champs subforum with 1637 posts which between them have had something like 150,000 views. The Mt Buller Chess forums with 5917 posts for two events were even bigger. It's been quite common for an Aus Champs to produce multiple threads on here beside the main one. (This is all, by the way, another reason why non-chess threads are our longest - we split events threads when they go off-topic).

    By the way I missed something on the stats list a few days ago, which is now rectified:

    Posters from top 60 by postcount currently inactive for >1 month:(inactive = no login, no posts, no proxy posts)

    10. ursogr8 (last active through another account, 14-07-2011)
    The activity may well have been in error and was certainly ephemeral, but it was still a post for a moment nonetheless.

    We missed beating this in the first nine days of the year by just four posts; as it was, we tied it in the first eight. Relatively high postcounts are common around Aus Champs/Open time.
