Thumbs up Some Site Statistics

I'll post this here first for exposure, then later move it to Site Feedback.

I just ran a few reports on this website. Remember a week and a half ago we started with nothing. 0 hits, 0 members, 0 posts. No one knew about us, so this is from initially getting the word out to where we are today.

Members: 296
Threads: 502
Posts: 6,143
Most Users Ever Online At One Time: 47

That right there is impressive for the time we've been open. Let's continue...


Total United Bimmer Hits: 685,081
Total Files Accessed: 405,387
Total Pages Viewed: 34,724
Total Visits: 4,442


Avg Max
Hits per Hour 2,038 13,005
Hits per Day 48,934 96,717
Files per Day 28,956 59,832
Pages per Day 2,480 8,480


And there again, when looking at these numbers, don't compare them to another site like "Well google gets about 10 million hits per hour". Haha, we just started out.

The first day we had 18 people visit, the third day 128, the 7th day 399, and yesterday 706. The site is growing an an exponential rate now that we're getting out there.

Following this growth rate, in a few months we're going to overtake most of the small startup forums in size, and continue our trek upwards. I'm estimating within 6 months we'll have upwards of 5,000 members and a million posts.

Though no matter how active we are or how many members we have... we're never going to forget the basis we were founded on... by the members for the members. We're going to be the same moderators combing through the newcomers and weeding out any who we think will not contribute to the community. Our goal is to keep this small-forum feeling with the success and activity of a big forum.

Good job guys! Keep it up!

Those are some absolutely sick stats. Can you find stats anywhere of other forums "ramp-up" period over the first 2 weeks to compare. I would like to see those numbers and I am willing to bet United is among the very best. Nice work.

Exponential growth is very nice. It will be really interesting to see how far we've come in the next couple months. If the stats are there, after only a couple weeks, a couple months will be phenominal. This is great.

Only a few gigs of transfer. This is a pretty lightweight interface... the one big image at the top which is cached after one visit.

He did? haha, I don't remember that.

Maybe that's why he's so slow to join this one....

I'm member 191 how depressing. It's not a bad number, though. Just a little high up there. Although, I AM a member, which is the cool part...even though I'm still a "Cute Little Newb".
