    Just out of curiosity but how many of those low digit (1,2,3 digits and up to a few thousands) accounts are still active and used?

    That takes a bit of processing to calculate. The last time I did it was probably about this time last year and it was over 50%. I would expect it to be much lower now - I daren't even guess. However, it isn't a priority for me at the moment so I will have to ask you to wait until things are under control on the site.

      I would imagine there are still quite a few checking in. I know I don't comment often, but I am logged in and lurking.
      Every time I've come across a story to submit recently I've seen it in the Queue already, so I'm afraid I've not been interacting with the site all that much.

        Much the same here. I don't contribute much anymore, but I typically come daily to read the headlines and if something catches my fancy I'll RTFA or the comments.

    It will actually be harder to calculate now because more logged in users are posting as AC than were doing so a year ago, and we do not get any identity of those who just read the site without logging in. Even such information that I do have to hand is hard to interpret. Page hits on popular stories can be in the low thousands whereas comments can be anything between single digits up to 100+.

    As a wild, wet finger in the air, guess I would say that we have up to 2 hundred active accounts in a month period but many more casual readers who simply don't log in.

    The other complicating factor is separating front page and journal posts. Minor problems such as we are experiencing today with the lack of mod points and the journal index side panel not displaying do affect daily figures rather more than one might expect.

      I am also one of those active, not active users. When beta came along a noped out of that and jumped on the Soylent bandwagon. I log in occasionally, but read every day.
