In answer to a suggestion that "it's always the same dozen people who post" I have taken a look back to the start of this year ... yes, just 9 and a bit days ... to reveal

217 different users have been logged in (*) . 84 of them have posted - 582 messages in total so far.

In the last 12 months, 267 different users have posted.

Edit to add ...
(*) - that's users logged in - there have been around 1,500 visitors if you count guests as well as logged in members.

I don't know if I am typical, but I "lurked" for quite a while before making my first tentative post. I would look forward to seeing some of those visitors making the same quantum leap this year.

Same here.  I lurked to understand the culture and operation of the board.  I only joined when I felt I could contribute positively to the discussion.

Gentlemen, the admin / moderator team appreciates your natural British reserve ... and there have been many others who have signed up and left their virgin post to months or years later.    However, we are a forum for passengers, passengers have questions and really should not be put off posting ... some of the more basic questions, indeed, are the lifeblood of the forum and it's great to have hooks onto which the more-experienced can hang answers.  I strongly encourage newcomers to join and post - just don't flood/spam us with 400 posts in 2 months!

February posts dipped below 2,000 ... first time in.year. "Just" 1896 posts.  But then it was the busiest February since 2014 ... and February 2014 was the month that the Dawlish Sea Wall got washed out (was that really five years ago?).  February is also a short month - posts per day average up from 65 per day in January to 68 per day in February, with a whole background of no major weather problems or announcements.

I don't have (easy to access) stats - but noting (and big welcome) to new members last month - more I think than in a typical month.  We never have a flood of people joining, and value each and every one of you.  Double plus welcome to those who have posted for the first time too.

Some stats work I have been doing ... on visits to the Coffee Shop



Left hand diagram shows (solid line) sessions over a 2 week period in May leading up to and after Community Rail in the City.  Dashed line is same 2 week period in April.  Easy to draw spurious conclusions ... April dip in the second week was due to a small event called Easter, and I have no doubt that part of the reason for the rise second week in May was to do with the final 4 HSTs in regular service off Paddington.

Top right diagram shows visits per hour yesterday

Maps show UK location of visitors yesterday (blue spotted diagram on left) and for the last 4 weeks (green spotted diagram on right).  I was going to use just the 4 week diagram, but there was so much data on there it was a flooded page so I thinned it out to just a typical day; nothing special about yesterday that I'm aware of for that diagram or the one above.

If you load the image above into a separate window / tab, you'll see it a little bigger. For download purposes I've used a .jpg and being a diagram rather that a picture, it remains a low bandwidth item!

Post numbers have dipped in June to 1978 - slightly below the 2,000 level which is what I treat as a very loose target.  Having said which, June is typically a quiet month for posts. The numbers are up on last year (1852 posts), on 2017 (just 1334 posts that June) and 2016 (1348 posts) ...

Off the routine monthly cycle of quoting a few server stats, here are some mid-month graphs. Spotting some characteristics that are a little different, I spent the last couple of hours taking a look; sharing some of the graphs

I'm analysing ... looks like a lot of Google references from China, and not to any specific page.   Keeping an eye on it ... even as I write, still around 750 "users" where previous record was 488.   Expect to see a glitch in site stats tomorrow.
