I've seen other sites do it -- thought it'd be interesting enough to post...

Attached is a summary of the website statistics (minus Jan 2002).

What happened in May, and June 2002? ;)

The numbers are pretty high, there is quite a bit of activity for the off-season as well. CheifDelphi has been a great place to go a chat, so it is no wonder why it is so high!

Off season .. and we may have moved servers in the middle of one of those months and lost log files -- dont really remember to tell you the truth..

it appears you fixed the huge summer peak when you archived all the old forums in....i remember it took us a pretty decent time to figure out why there was so much activity then

That graph won't show the huge summer peak. I did all that on the database side, which wouldn't affect the hits or bandwidth.

I'll tell you what happened in May and June, it's called sleep, and lots of it!!!!!

I think those numbers are fairly close, it was pretty dead during those months...

By the way, what ever happened to all the old stats graphs. I know stats moved to inside the "extras" area, but I can't find the graphs anywhere (new threads, new members, etc).

Our new server doesn't have the GD libraries required to draw the graphs. I'm too lazy to recompile php w/ GD libraries -- so they went bye-bye. :)

Actually, I recompiled PHP yesterday, but forgot GD libraries. Oops. I don't want to risk recompiling again, and messing it up, the day before kickoff. :)

Those stats were way off anyway, they're merely there for amusement, or something :)
