Since I upgraded my broadband some IP locators have moved me to Scotland.....

And me to either Cardiff or Poland. Plus I have checked in over the past 6 months from 8 foreign countries. Does this skew things?

As IP addressed get reassigned, copy databases become less reliable if you're getting location from a site like GeoIP as we do for some stuff behind the scenes.  However, Google Analytics probably uses its own system and keeps it very much current, and I would suspect that averaged out the geographic mapping of visitors is somewhere between "quite good" and "very good".  I wouldn't trust individual splodges on the map, but I would accept the general pattern.

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

Every so often, I take a look at the forum stats at a different angle (more often than I tell members about to keep me finger on the pulse!) ... and I have looked at a couple of thins this morning - all about FEBRUARY.

Number of posts for April 2018 - 2132 - up from 1213 in April 2017
Number of posts for March 2018 - 2361 - up from 1796 in March 2017
Number of posts for February 2018 - 1869 - up from 1376 in February 2017

Historically, our post count fluctuation has reflected the fluctuation in performance and satisfaction with our main train provider (FGW, now GWR) with more posts suggesting more concerns.  So not a good couple of months for them in their customer / passenger's eye.

Please note though that our March and April figures have been distorted by our own issues on the forum, with our server crash over Easter which has reduced the number of posts remaining on our server by between 100 and 150 for each of those two months.

Wow! That's quite a jump and yes as you say sadly reflects on how things have been on the GWR network these past few months.
