The Coffee Shop finished 2020 in a flurry of activity, with over 2000 posts in December.

December is always busy with a daily advent quiz, but it's astonishing that in 2020, even after the coronavirus pandemic that has supressed train use (and we're all about train use) it actually grew on the previous year.  Perhaps that's because members are all fed up and wanted sometime to do.  And it could be because this forum has come to be a part of the daily routine for quite a number of well informed members, and as such a a valuable resource between ourselves and for any decision makers and influencers who care to read us - and we know that some do.

184 forum members were logged in during December, 99 of them on New Year's Eve alone. 15 had already been there in 2021 when I put my light out and turned over to go to sleep at a quarter past one.

Last 28 days, v previous 28 days:

Some numbers on that:

Where are people coming from, how many pages are they looking at, how often do they come back?

January 2021 ... no big changes in underlying stats from December 2020, though post numbers are down a little - perhaps because we haven't had an advent quiz ("only 333 days to Christmas")

Couple of comments - the spikes about a week ago were some sort of automata from the west coast of the USA - look odd, but no damage. Take them out, and things like the percentage from the UK goes up above 90% again. And notice the number of pages per visit by country, and bounce rates for the USA, indicate it accounts for less than 1% of pages served.
