    Dicing? I thought wading might have been closer to the mark.

    Yep, the point of note is that the new bot record is about double the old (from memory 600ish).

    well given the onslaught came as a flood not a dribble it wasn't an reconnaisance visit from the entire over there membership that's for sure!

    Which leads to the question "How many of the 3664 members are real?"

    ...I don't want to go among mad people Alice remarked, "Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: we're all mad here. I am mad. You're mad." "How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice. "You must be," said the Cat ,"or you wouldn't have come here."

    about 3000 don't count in membership list having not made a post
    a lot of these would be banned spammers

    That is an astonishingly large bot influx, almost double the previous record.

    This was my attempt to answer this question back when there were only about 2600.

    At that time there were 608 accounts with posts of which at least 24 and probably closer to 40 were hydras, so I estimated 570 real members who have posted.

    There are now 658 accounts with undeleted posts and no reason to suspect a significant new intake of hydras in that time, so we've probably gained fifty new real posters since mid-February, which is quite pleasing.

    However to have the rate of new members increasing four times faster than the rate of new posters strongly suggests that most of the last 1000 are spammers. We have been banning a lot of them too.

    I reckon we've got about 300 lurker members or new members who haven't posted yet on top of the c.620 who have posted, but there's really no way of finding out.

    such markets exist due to many "members" needing help!

    Half-yearly forum stats update time.

    Total posts: 151,988.
    Top 10 posters: 63016 posts, 41.46% of total posts.
    However "total posts" appears to include correspondence game posts of which there are now 10942. Top 10 posters total does not include correspondence game posts.
    Posts since last update: 22151
    658 accounts have undeleted posts (a few dozen of these are hydras).

    Top Posters by postcount

    Code:
    1. Bill Gletsos		 10606		[+908]
    2. Kevin Bonham 	 8839		[+1527]
    3. ggrayggray		 8287		[+951]
    4. Rincewind		 7439		[+725]
    5. ursogr8		 5680		[unchanged]
    6. antichrist 		 5675		[+498]

    9. Belthasar 		 3871 	        [+16]
    10. Gunner Duggan 	 3867		[+1558]
    Since the last update Gunner Duggan has moved into the top ten,and at current rate will likely take ninth spot within days if not hours, and move up to 8th within two months.

    Stats for Bill Gletsos, Kevin Bonham and Rincewind include posts in private mods subforum (a few to several hundred depending on poster).

    Ten most active posters by posts per day (Qualification: 100 posts). Figure in brackets is position on poster list

    1. Bill Gletsos 8.32 (1)
    2. Gunner Duggan 8.30 (10)
    3. Kevin Bonham 6.93 (2)
    4. ggrayggray 6.50 (3)
    5. Rincewind 5.83 (4)
    6. ursogr8 4.45 (5)
    7. antichrist 4.45 (6)
    8. Boris 4.44 (15)
    9. Michael Baron 3.83 (21)
    10. arosar 3.53 (7)

    Jono (44) has averaged 7.40 ppd since making his first post, but signed up years before that.

    Ten most active in last month

    1. Kevin Bonham 258
    2. Gunner Duggan 232
    3. Rincewind 155
    4. Axiom 154

    7. ggrayggray 113
    8. eclectic 108
    9. Mangafranga 103
    10. Igor_Goldenberg 94

    Previously this list included correspondence game section posts. Now it no longer does, which is the reason why the top totals are much lower than last time.

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

    6. antichrist (23-03-2007)
    8. PHAT (last post 25-08-2006, last login 27-12-2006, permanently banned)
    9. Belthasar (02-01-2007)

    55. Skaro (23-03-2007, account suspended)
    58. auriga (03-04-2006)

    Posters from top 60 logging in but not posting:

    5. ursogr8 (last post 10-07-2006)

    Number of inactive (in some sense) top-60 posters has increased from 13 to 19 since last update. Four have been removed from the list (two by activity and two by no longer being in the top 60) and ten have been added. Of the ten added, one was banned. In three of the remaining cases (antichrist, Belthasar, jase) conflict with other posters is a probable cause, while in the remaining six cases no cause is known. Probably some, if not most, of these six are on long orbits (as is Recherche, who is listed as inactive on both lists, but posted between them) and will later return.

    Top ten threads by posts:

    1728 Does God Exist?
    1122 cricket
    1055 Blood on Hands (removed)
    997 your feedback
    798 2006 Torino Olympiad
    795 extending state bans nationwide
    775 soft titles
    700 Olympiad Selections (2004)
    698 How competitive do you want it to be?
    671 Mt Buller Championships (archived)

    There were some omissions of old threads in the previous lists - these have now been rectified. "soft titles" is the only genuine new entry to the list.

    Top ten threads by views

    27593 Does God exist?
    24060 your feedback
    23237 Sydney International Open 2007
    22166 2005 Doeberl Cup
    21595 Doeberl Cup 2006
    21594 extending state bans nationwide*
    21486 2006 Torino Olympiad
    21204 cricket
    19342 Mt Buller CD, junior development fund (archived)
    18606 2007 Australian Open

    2006 Torino Olympiad was inadvertently omitted from previous list.

    While views from old threads continue to increase, most likely caused by search bots, this seems to have slowed on some of the old threads, and the list is probably a reasonable indication of actual interest levels in threads. The high view-rates for relatively recent threads like 2007 SIO and Aus Open show the forum continues to be heavily used as an information source about such events.

    * actually an underestimate of views for those posts as thread was formed via threadsplit

    Top ten postcounts for a single thread by poster ... we have a new leader again...

    372 Axiom (THE INFORMATION WAR: Investigating - Media, Corruption, Lies and Globalism (Coffee Lounge - locked)
    320 antichrist (Blood on Hands - thread removed)
    289 ursogr8 (How competitive do you want it to be?)
    250 Rincewind (Does God exist?)
    240 Frosty (Does God exist?)
    235 antichrist (Does God exist?)
    220 Rincewind (cricket)
    202 ursogr8 (football codes- what is the future?)
    193 Kevin Bonham (Does God exist?)
