    Default Belated Friday stats: People joining Pubs Galore

    Thought I would have a look at how many people joing Pubs Galore by month since it started.

    There is a lot of history there, and it is interesting to look at it from my perspective, if you have any questions about the pattern, just ask and Dave may try and explain it

    Just looking at that, looks like we get roughly 4 new approved members a day, we don't however get 4 new contributors every day. This rather supports Ed's (and nogoodboyo's) observation that something is wrong.

    Personally I am not convinced it is to do with the Home Page, but would certainly welcome all suggestions.

    Any easy breakdown of how many new joiners become more than one shot contributors?

    My assumption, from other posts, is a lot are join, slag off, then goodbye

    Is this a fair assumption?

    and what constitutes an active user?

    Ok,

    I can't think of an easy way to do that stat, so I may come back to it at some point, but to give you a broad answer.

    Of 9491 members we currently have on the site, 2922 have left reviews, 865 have left more than 1 review and a miserly 142 have left more than 10 reviews.

    The 1 drop reviewers are normally either axe grinders or pub landlords, you just hear a lot about the axe grinders as they are one of my gripes .

    Soup Dragon, if you are talking about the active members shown on the front of the forum, that is members of the forum who have posted on the forum, those stats are very misleading due to the way I have integrated the forum with Pubs Galore.

    And of course we have a new category of contributor, those who join so they can promote their ability at arranging twigs on our forums .

    I am, unashamedly, a traditional pub hound. Seeing interiors like those, instantly makes me feel like a few cocktails.....Molotov cocktails.

    As soon as I realise I have walked into a glitzy, low leather seating and chrome bar stools sort of place I wonder how long it will be before I am offered services which have nothing to do with beer.
    Never happens to me in 'Spoons which would probably more affordable.

    Back to Stats...late 06 & early 07 was a bit of a disaster. What was that due to ? Sunspots or the Great Beer and Lager Drought ?
