Nice Contest.

Now My Guess is 4321.

I think you need to specify the Time Zone for contest end.
deanhills
I don't think I need to specify the time zone for the contest end as it will be the last number of posts listed by the Stats Website for December, before it turned to January.

http://www.frihost.com/search/post_statistics.php

I do need to probably specify the time zone for the 15 December cut off date though. Think I will make it the same as Frihost's HQ in Belgium.

GMT+1 hour or just check this link for the time in Belgium:

Confused!
Giving two weeks in December helps with working on averages for predicting the final number. Wanted to have some statistics involved to make it measurable so it is not completely a lottery type guess.

Great idea for a contest!

Trends say 4551, but we can do better than that. I'll go with 5145 for now. Though, on second thought, I could guess 9000 and make 4000 spam posts on New Year's Eve Twisted Evil . Of course, now that we have a samurai in the ranks of Frihost, I must use caution.

The post count hasn't been over 5000 in any month this year,at nearly the half way point this month we aren't even over 2000,so based on the post count at half way and the fact that we haven't been over 5000 this year I can't see it being over 5000 this month.

I did some calculations tonight and got to a number of 4058. Looks as though Truespeed is the closest to that number so far. Turns out he is quite correct in wondering why people were guessing over 5000. It's been very slow posting wise so far this month. If we continue in this slow mode, the number may well go down to Mathiaus's lowest number.
mathiaus
I wasn't being a pessimist, just expect it to be quieter at the end of the year, the younger ones to be banned from using computers/phones and to spend time with family, etc, holidays..
I am expecting it to pick up in the new year as people share resolutions, what happened, etc. All good after this month... Wink
deanhills
Down to 3963 right now. Getting closer and closer to Truespeed's predicted number. Cool
sonam
I think Mathiaus will win. I don't know what happened with posting but it is looking the members have lot of work in the holidays time.

Sonam
Peterssidan
To reach 9000 this month we would have to make over 1000 posts per day and that is not going to happen.

I doubt anyone will actually win this month. The chances are quite small.
deanhills
Agreed Peterssidan. Averages for the month indicate 3819. So the number has come down more.

We're on 3450 today, 29 December. I've taken the average of 28 days, which is 123.2 posts and multiplied it by 31 for a total of 3819 posts. Since you're good with stats Peterssidan, you'd probably be able to refine it even more, like use the changes in averages over a period of a week or more. Although, who knows, closer to New Year's people may be posting more. Not always 100% predictable.

Last December we actually increased the number of posts over the number of the previous month. The number for December 2011 was also above the average for the year of 5026 posts per month. We made 5180 posts in December 2011 which was a good increase over the November number of 4857. It could have been due to Ghostrider's efforts during October and November of getting golden oldie members to return to the Board.

The average for posts during 2010 was 4847. So December 2010 posts were well above the average at 5537 posts. It was however down from 6196 in the previous month of November. October and November had been bumper months over 6000 posts because of new initiatives that had been implemented during September.

The average of monthly posts during 2012 to date is 4257. Looks as though we're going to be below the average number of posts for 2012 in December. Also down in total number of posts for the year over the previous year.
Gregoric
I didn't suppose that Frihost would get less visited/popular anytime. But after I had read your post, Deanhills, I was completely surprised. The amount of posts will be even a bit less than you estimated as people who used to post in evenings (I suppose there are lots of such people) won't post on Monday, so it will be like December had 30 'active posting' days.

Why had the forum become less active? I can't really say much as I am not able to write here too often but I mostly thought the community is large, active and - still growing.
deanhills
Gregoric wrote:

Although the number of posts are indicative of how active a community is, it has to be seen in context of the number of people who are active in the community. Our bulk posters who used to post an average 60 to 80 points per day are either not around or not making those large number of posts any longer. Instead I'm almost certain we have more people posting, however making many less posts per individual. I think the only point where we need to be concerned is if we have less people posting. Would probably be an interesting exercise to figure out how to do the statistics to estimate the number of active members on a daily, monthly and annual basis so that one could figure out the average number of posts per actively posting member.
truespeed
I think for next month you should possibly extend the margin for error,to get it within 10 posts is very unlikely.
cybersa
I think Mathiaus will win this contest.
truespeed
cybersa wrote:

He will be closest,but he needs to get within ten posts to win.
Peterssidan
The biggest problem this month was that people was way too optimistic and thought holiday would mean more posts when the truth was the opposite. People will probably get better at predicting the number of posts.

With 11 users this month we covered a total of 231 posts, so even if the guesses would have been better there is a big chance that no one would have won. Not sure how difficult deanhills wants this to be. Maybe there will be more guesses in the future. If the margin was increased too much it would force people to make guesses within the margin of other guesses. That would probably make people change their guesses more often because they noticed their margin has become too small. It becomes a choice between a better guess or a bigger margin. Not sure this is a bad thing because it adds some tactics to it.

Agreed. When I did my calculations today I arrived at 3764 posts. So if it's VERY quiet tonight, the number could still go down into the winning range of 3690 to 3710.

Right indeed. Mathiaus is the fair and square winner. Congratulations! Right on the mark! Cool

Mathiaus, if you don't want the coins to be transferred, we can rerun this contest for January and double the prize money for 100 coins. Let me know what your preference is. If not, I'll rerun this contest for 50 coins. Deadline 16 January.

Congratulations on winning the content mathiaus. I am however slightly disappointed in the big decline in posts. Especially from last year. I really thought things would pick up more this year.

The prize for the January contest is 100 coins. Did you mean 50 coins to the 100 coins, in other words 150 coins rjraaz? I'd rather stretch those coins for a further contest after January.

Definitely. The prize is 100 coins. The rules are the same, i.e. the winning number has to be within the range of plus or minus 10 of the actual number of posts that have been made for January. If there are more than one entry within that range, obviously the one closest to the actual number of posts for January. The deadline is 16 January.

Inclusive of 16th, but if someone posted a number in the early morning of 17th, I'd look at those too, particularly if from the Americas. Think I'll take my guide from Bondings' statistics in my signature. If the statistics show 17th clearly, then we're past the deadline.

Just did my usual calculation and for now averages show a total of 4170. Can be misleading however, as the number average started to drop during the second half of December.

Almost at 3000 posts. Averaged total number for 24 January is 3997. Looks as though we are slowly creeping to 4000. Codegeek's guess is still the closest.

Looks as though we are slowing down towards the end of January like we had in December. We're at 3447 posts. Average for the month at 28 January is 3816. Looks as though 3816 is closest to Peterssidan's number of posts.

Getting almost to the end of the contest. Still waiting for the Statistics to end January by beginning February, but it's currently at 3719, which is closest to Sonam's number of 3721 and not very far from William's 3755.

Rules are exactly the same, except of course we'll be back to 50 coins for the winning number. If no one should guess the correct number for February, we'll carry the coins over to March. Deadline is 16 February. Timing for actual deadline is when Bondings' Statistics clicks over to 17 February.

I will go low as it is only 28 days this month,I think possibly this could be the first month ever below 3000,so my guess is 2985.

I don't think you'll be far off Truespeed. On top of everything else I'll be on leave for two weeks from 16 February to 5th of March. I'll do my best to post of course, but only if computers are around. I'll be staying with family most of the time. Not sure whether I can take my laptop with as there are no Wireless with my family, but maybe there's a way that one could get short-term internet through a flash disk or something like that. Reminds me that I should ask my sister what the options are.
deanhills
So far the average seems to be 3629. So good chance it may dip below 3000 for the first time in ages, as Truespeed predicted. Certainly hope it won't happen though. Darn! Hope I can keep my posting up when I'm on holiday. Will definitely give it a good try.

I noticed the post count can drop quite a bit after the month has ended. The post count for December 2012 was reported to be 3697 in this thread but is now down to 3645.

EDIT: Now the post count for February has dropped within 10 posts of _AVG_'s guess.

Congratulations _AVG_. Final post number is 3455 and your guess was 3457. Pretty darn close! Very Happy

50 coins are on their way to you.

Haha thanks it was a lucky guess lol.
Honestly though I don't see any use for the coins, can I donate them back to the contest or something so that the next month's winner gets 100?
Anyway, I could come up with another contest to give them away otherwise. Smile

Agreed. Next winner gets 50 coins from you and 50 coins from me for a total of 100 coins.

So let's go for it. Another contest for March 2013. Let's cross fingers it will be above 4000 posts this month.

Thanks Sonam. I've decided to keep the applications open until end of 22 March. Deadline is the clicking over of Bondings' post statistics (at the bottom of my signature) on 23 March.

Reason being I'd like us to have a few more contestants.

Hi, I'm new, too, and I want to play Smile

My guess for March is 3680

the winning answer has to be within 10 of the actual post number? wow! How does anyone ever win? I guess that's why it's worth 100 coins, eh?

Very Happy

There has been a winner in all of the three previous months that this contest has been running. The reason the prize is 100 Coins this month instead of 50 Coins is because _AVG_, the winner of last month, didn't want the Coins.

I wonder what would happen if the winner of this contest does not want the 100 coins. I think that it would be better to give the coins away to every person who participate than to decline the coins.

I'll go with 3528 this round.

Ahhh .... GREAT! Thanks very much. Looks as though we are on the roll again. Today is the last day, and will cut it off when Bondings' Stats Page kicks over to 23 March.

Now, I would love back into the game, definitely I am 2 hrs late according my local time but Bondings stats page still shows 22nd of March.

Moreover, you accept me or not but here is my guess for this month

I am quite excited to see who would win this contest as we are very close to the end of March. It is either me or Sonam who would win. If I win, I would like all coins to be split up between all participants. Good luck to all participants. By the way, do blog posts and comments count as posts? I am also quite surprised that there are less posts than usual for this month despite this month having 31 days. I admit trying to post as many times as possible to try to manipulate the number of posts so that I would win. Is this ethical? I don't think so, so I'll stop and I am sorry Sonam for this. If I win which I would very likely do so as I said in a post above, I would split up the coins with everyone else.

It may be ethically iffy but if your posts are worth reading.. I mean, if they add good content to the forums and aren't just obvious quantity boosters.. then you should post them.

Sonam's number has already been passed. For you to win twotrophy we need to make about 160 posts today. Looking at the last few days it looks like we not going to make it.

If this encourage you to post more I think it's a good thing as long as you make posts of decent quality.

Each of us would only get 100/13 coins which is less than 10 coins but at least that would be something. The calculator on Google gave the answer as 7.69 (rounded to 2 decimal places) which is 1-2 days worth of coins for an active user. This would mean that 7.69 x 13 = 99.97 with 0.03 given to the 2nd closest guesser which would probably be Sonam. I do not want the next month's prize to be 200 coins because that would be too much so splitting up is better.

A very bad thing is that the number of posts have declined very much over the last few months. Should we try to invite more people to Frihost?
codegeek
It seems that I have guessed too high (again). Well, there's always a next time. Best of luck to twotrophy. I think it's very generous of you that you have decided to split up the coins if you win.
deanhills

Not sure what you mean by splitting it up? I'd rather that we stick to the rules, which is the winning number has to be within 10 posts of the final number of posts. Unless there is more than one winner with the exact same number of posts within the 10 posts range, I can't see how there could be more than one winner.

I haven't given up that there will be a winner either. There is still a good chance for either you, Nick2008, jmraker and Truespeed to be the winner. It ain't over until it is over.

In the eventuality there is no winner, then next month won't be 200 coins either. The usual prize is 50 coins. It's only 100 coins for this month as _AVG_ offered to contribute his last winnings to the winner of this month as well. 50 coins from me and 50 coins from _AVG_. If there is no winner then it will be 100 coins from me and 50 coins from _AVG_ for April.

What I meant is that I am going to divide my winnings with all other users if I win. So, I guess that manipulating the number of posts is the best way to win which can be done by either posting extremely often to increase the number of posts or to avoid posting to decrease the number of posts. I guess that a winner would be very unlikely then for this month.

Stats say 3353. I can't believe I was so far off. wow. So, uhm..According to deanhill's list, no-one got within 10 posts. Is that correct? And if it is no-one wins, right? Just making sure I understand the rules

It is already April according to the post statistics. No one won Deanhill's contest unfortunately. I am the closest person to guess the correct number of posts for last month but unfortunately, it is not within the range of 10 posts. One question is that would the post count continue to drop in April?

I'm concerned about that too Twotrophy. That is a really REALLY low number.

Anyway, you're right of course. Looks as though we don't have a winner for this month. So will carry this forward to a next session of guessing the number. 100 coins from me and 50 from _AVG_ if _AVG_ is still OK with this.
jmraker
To avoid all the wild over and under guessing how about guessing the number of posts for April 30th or any ONE day instead of the cumulative posts for a month. I'm sure the "within 10 posts" rule would be met and someone would win.

http://www.frihost.com/search/post_statistics.php?groupby=day
instead of
http://www.frihost.com/search/post_statistics.php?groupby=month

Maybe even a "guess tomorrow's count exactly" and keeps going daily until the first one to guess exactly wins. The guesses would probably have to state which date is tomorrow for them since of the time zones.

If it's a "Guess today's count exactly" wouldn't there have to be a cut off time like no guesses after noon server time because the stats page would hint at the final post count and some couldn't guess or have a mess of people accidentally posting their guesses before THEIR noon but the forum's post time is after the cut off time.

Shall we try to invite more people to Frihost to increase the number of posts? By the way, my secret in guessing quite close to the original number is to calculate the number of posts that are there divided by the number of days that has passed. I hope revealing this would make guesses more accurate.

THANKS _AVG_ Cool

@jmraker. Thanks for the suggestion. The fact that no one won is out of the ordinary, as there has been a clear winner for all of the contests before. What happened was that no one could see the out of ordinary slump in posts for this month in advance - and it IS out of the ordinary. I'm OK with the rules the way they are now as it will make it very interesting as well. Is there going to be a correction in the slump - or will it be the same? Gives it an extra edge to the challenge.
twotrophy
I am worried on what might happen if there would be no winner for the month of April. I wonder how many coins are you going to give. I would put a link on my signature to this contest in several hours to increase the number of participants in a few hours. I hope that there would be a winner.

I think we should blame the Easter break for at least part of the "slump in posts". The same happened during Christmas.

Agreed. Although we were busy at work, I noticed too that people we had to do business with in Europe were away for a longer period than just the Easter weekend, probably extending their weekend to get the greatest mileage out of it, and then of course most schools had their two week break as well (except of course in the Middle East).

I do like penguins, but in this case it is the artwork that is the attraction for me. The original art work before Disney took the Penguin Club over in particular. I like the bright colours and the characters as well the expressions on their faces.

Thanks OBP. So here's to hoping we'll get some more entries!

Averaged out figure for April (up to end of 12 April) looks like 3680.
I was so much hoping the number would be going up.
twotrophy
If you look at the Frihost post statistics in recent days, you will find that the average number of posts have decreased considerably. The number of posts per month have been decreasing for a long time. Is there any explanation to this problem? I am a bit worried as this appears to be a serious problem.

I would be making a guess today if I have the time. I would use a calculator to calculate the average number of posts for the past days and multiply it by how many days there are in this month.

My guess is 3,344 posts for the month of April.

Edit: I should have guessed yesterday. It's 6pm on April 22nd where I am but the server time says it's the 23rd. So I guess my guess is invalid. The 1 day off in the equation pushed the number down to 3,199

is this contest still open?

My guess is 400?

You are too pessimistic. Wink Just joking, 400 is too small number of posts for this month (approximately for three, four days). You can use statistics link on deanhills sig to calculate right number for you.

OK Zimmer I've made the number 4000. Taking a guess that is what you meant? Can you confirm before tomorrow, at start of 24 April, otherwise that will be the number that was entered by default.

3450 (same terms as before)

Just noticed Codegeek had submitted that number before you. Hope you don't mind, I changed yours to 3500. If you wish to change it you can do so by start of 24 April, otherwise that will be the number that was entered by default.

I probably should add a rule that there can't be more than one entry for any given number. Next time I'll keep a running tab of the numbers as we go along so everyone can see what numbers have been selected.

Thanks. Very Happy

Here are the numbers that have been submitted for the April contest (thanks VERY much for your participation). Please let me know if I have left any one out, they are being listed in the order of smallest to biggest number:

Nyasro - 2155
Sonam - 3332
Truespeed - 3333
jmraker - 3344
Peterssidan - 3357
William - 3378
Cybersa - 3400
Onebadpenny - 3425
Codegeek - 3450
mathiaus - 3500
Twotrophy - 3516
Zimmer - 4000
Mevans9860 - 4250


I checked the average number at 23rd April and it turned out to be 3499 to date. In the region of mathiaus (gulp Shocked). Still lots of time to 30 April however. Very Happy

Today is calculating for thirty days is 3353. In Peterssidan region.

One suggestion:
Maybe it will be good to post here number but also PM to you deanhills how you can create table from start of post in contest not on the end of contest post time. In that case everyone can see on your last post all players and their numbers. In that case difference between two players can be ease to seen and we will not have situation like this:
Sonam - 3332
Truespeed - 3333


Or maybe is this situation more interesting, he, he, he. Very Happy

Thanks for the suggestion Sonam. I made the suggestion of a running list of entries earlier (for the next competition) ... and somehow missed out on how close you and Truespeed had been in number. In addition to featuring a running table of entries, think we should also add a rule not to pick a number within 10 points of the other.

By the way, we're almost at the end of the competition. Good luck to every one. We're at 3214 right now. So looks as though maybe you and Truespeed are quite close now.
Very Happy

The monthly number of posts at Frihost seem to be decreasing each month. I think that this is a serious problem and I am worried about it. I hope that the number of posts does increases even slightly for this month. Is it because of less active people or is it because more and more people are quitting the forums?

Frihost has been on a steady downward spiral for a few years now,in terms of the recent downturn in posts,that could be down to Bondings not being around and activating new hosting accounts. (possibly)

I think Mathiaus has been back helping Bondings with activating accounts for a number of months now. His account is set to "hidden" I think, as it is not listed with the other "online user" accounts at the bottom of the Forum page, but I do pick it up as a stat against "hidden" now and then, like I used to with Bondings.

Looks as though we're clearing 3300, which is making me happy as I thought that would have been the maximum we would have got to this month. Maybe the winner is going to be somewhere among these guesses:

Cybersa - 3400
Onebadpenny - 3425
Codegeek - 3450
Mathiaus - 3500
Twotrophy - 3515
twotrophy
The server clock will reach 1st May any minute now. I guess that the number of posts would decrease as usual Sad I hope to see more posts over the next few months. I would try to post more often to achieve this.
Peterssidan
twotrophy, there is still a lot of 30 April left of this month.

Looks like Cybersa or Onebadpenny will win this month.

I didn't realize that there is still a day left in April according to the Frihost Post Statistics. It is likely that the number of posts would be about 3400 by the end of tomorrow. I hope someone wins. Shall we try to manipulate the post count by posting as much as possible so that someone wins?

I requested for a domain with privacy protection so I would expect that it would require much more than 350 coins. I think that it would take double the amount of coins for such a domain so I should try to post much more often. Next, I also would need much more coins for domain renewals in the future. I hope that Bondings would be more active. Even an extremely busy person would probably be able to post at least once or twice every week.

Well at least we've beaten the March number of 3319. We've just reached 3327. And yes, plenty of time for posting before 1 May.

Congratulations Cybersa. Looks as though you're the winner for April. 50 coins from me and 50 from _AVG_.

deanhills
Well, again, want to thank you all for participating. Well done Cybersa, and Mathiaus as well. Razz

The contest will be repeated for May. _AVG_ 's winnings of 50 coins that have been passed on to Cybersa has been donated by Cybersa to the winnings for May (hopefully there will be a direct transfer from _AVG_ to the winner of May) for a total of 100 coins (DH50 + _AVG_/Cybersa50=100 coins). The winning number will be the one closest to the actual number of posts but not by less than 10 posts. If the guess is out by larger than 10 posts, we'll just carry the coins over to the next month. Note that numbers cannot be duplicated within 10 posts of any of the numbers that have already been submitted. I will try to keep a running tab of the numbers that have been submitted as we progress through the month so as to avoid duplications.

Deadline for submitting the numbers is end of 22 May (when the Frihost Statistics "day" clicks over to 23 May).

We have a victory. We have increased the number of posts for the last month. Can we try to bring up the number of posts to 3500 this month? I expect the number of posts this month to be between 3300-3500. Also, my hosting request appears to be taking much longer than expected. It is bad that more and more people especially staff are becoming inactive. Sad

I think Bondings has been on as this topic has become a featured topic on the forum index page,maybe he didn't have time to go through the hosting requests.

Wow. Maybe an admin was the one who did that. I probably still need more coins for a domain name with privacy protection as it would be more expensive than a normal domain. I expect that 700 coins are required. It happened very recently that it became a featured discussion. There should be a way to tell when a person last came online.

No it was tidruG. He responded to a PM I'd sent back in early March. I was totally bowled over when I heard from him. It went something like this. I first asked Mathiaus, and then learned through him that only an Admin could put threads in the featured section, then wrote to tidruG. For some or other bizarre reason my PM got missed on his system, however good luck prevailed when he finally picked up on it.

Totally! Cool

I've just asked tidruG if he could change the wording slightly as I feel it's been an awesome team effort rather than one individual .... Also quite a number of coins have been added by people like Mathiaus, _AVG_ and now Cybersa as well, so I'm not the only one who have been donating coins so to speak. It's been great fun so far.
cybersa
Still no one posted for this month.
I'm going to start,
My Guess 3123

This month posting rate was very low.

Hope all frihoster will join this contest.

That's a low number Cybersa, but have a feeling that the post number for May is going to be very low.

Hmm.. I'm going to say 3385 this time around.

Agreed. It could get even lower than that. Average per day posting has been 80 posts. Worked out to 2477 when I calculated it today.
deanhills
OK, here is the running total so far - note that any one can change their number if they wish up to the deadline - can't have duplicate numbers or numbers within 10 points of numbers that have already been selected:

Truespeed - 2500*
Cybersa - 3123
Codegeek - 3385
Ircher - 3964

Please let me know if I've missed any.

*@Truespeed. Not sure whether the comment about 2500 was your guess, or just a comment. Maybe you could confirm .... thanks.
twotrophy
The number of posts this month is quite low. There are only 1000+ posts at the moment. Let's try to increase the number of posts by being more active and posting more often. I would try to post more as well. I am very active on this forum. Let's try to have the total number of posts this month to be at least 3500.

3964; I hope I win!

I'd be happy if there were a greater number of posts, but if there were a choice between a lower number with quality posts, versus a higher number with posts that have been made just for the sake of numbers, then I'd go for the lower number with quality posts.

Any way, am curious to know what number you will be picking this time round.

4015

I think looking at the stats so far,my guess as unlikely as it seems may be a little too high,but hopefully a late surge of end of month posts will boost the final total to somewhere near my amount,so I will stick with my guess.

I think I'll go for 2900 though I hope I'll be miles away...

My guess is 2723. It just turned 22th May according to the Frihost post statistics which means that we still have a short time to guess the number of posts. It is good that this contest has made me and probably some other people that the post count is decreasing. Starting a lot of informative threads which would generate more replies would be good to try to keep this forum more active.

Noticed it too. Get a feeling that you're in the winning zone again this time. It's going to be around 2800 plus. Maybe 2900. My non-competing guess for what it's worth Razz

It seems odd to be guessing in the 2000s,not since the very first month of frihost back in April 2005 has a monthly total been below 3000.

True. Things have changed quite a lot since then. I'm still glad Frihost is around however. Many of the hosts who started around that time are not around any longer. Makes Frihost kind'a special it's still there.

Agreed; it surprises me that Frihost has actually prospered; how else could they have increased the Disk Space and Bandwidth usage for everyone? If any host deserves to live, it is DEFINITELY Frihost! So Deanhills, when will you announce the results?

Looks as though the number is going to end in the 2800s touching 2900. It's 2700 now. Going to be interesting, as there are quite a number of guesses in the 2800 and 2900. Yesterday we had a real spike in the day count, i.e. 131 - the average had been under 100. Today's number of posts is almost already at 100 with plenty of hours still to go. That makes me happy to see! Cool

Oh well, worth a try anyway; it is free chance to win money, but yeah, thanks for answering that for me. Anyway, why do you stop it so early? I mean May 23 is more than a week before the end of the month. Wouldn't say 3 days before the end of the month be fair? Well, it is your contest and your coins, so I guess you can do it how you want to, but I just thought this would be a good suggestion.

This month either Mathiaus - 2900 or Peterssidan - 2921 will won this contest.

True. Or there may be no winner. We're almost touching 2900 and there is still a good sized number of hours to go until the end of the day.
deanhills
Darn! Looks as though there is no winner. Total posts ended up at 2965. Wish it could have made 3000, but at least it wasn't at 2500. Posting was very frenetic with bursts of posts on certain days and an increase in the average of posts towards the end of the month, like so:

No Winner Sad
But post rate was increased than we expected. Smile

Hope for someone will win this contest next month.(May be me ) Laughing

My guess for this month is 3500 posts; I know it is too early, however, as they say, the early bird catches the worm!

After you,my current guess is 3210
deanhills
Just a recap of the rules, and the value of coins for this month's competition.

The winning number will the the one closest to the actual number of posts but not by less than 10 posts. If the guess is out by larger than 10 posts, we'll just carry the coins over to the next month. Numbers cannot be duplicated within 10 posts of any of the numbers that have already been submitted.

_AVG_ 's winnings of 50 coins that have been passed on to Cybersa has been donated by Cybersa for the month of May (hopefully there will be a direct transfer from _AVG_ to the winner of June). Since there was no winner for May, the 50 coins for May will be added to June for a total of 150 coins.

Thanks very much for the numbers that have already been submitted - this is the rolling table to date:

Let's try to make at least 3300 posts this month. I will try to be more active this month and make more posts about news. By the way, this is my 500th post.

Okie dokie. Thanks for the two new entries. 3001 - nice number Stand. Very Happy

@Twotrophy. The posts have to be 10+ apart so have made it 3199. Feel free to change the number at any time up to 22 June.

Thanks for confirming that _AVG_ Indeed, the numbers have been slightly erratic if you noticed the graph of mine earlier on. I'd say there should have been a winning number for May, if the numbers had continued closer to the average projected number at 22 May.

Any way, let's see what happens during June! Very Happy

I think that is wise andro_king. Our numbers aren't as bad as they were at the beginning of last month, but then of course one has to calculate in one less day for the month as well.

Right. But hasn't that been the case most of the time? It sort of balanced it out for a more or less steady number. Like our visitors number seems to stay steady around 100 plus or minus. Looks as though the users have synchronized themselves in that they all post on the same days when they do, and are off on the same days. Ha! Should check whether there is a pattern in the day dips.
truespeed
The forum couldn't be accessed for a long time yesterday,I have visited the forum a few times recently when it has been like that,this could be the reason for the low post count days and the fluctuations.

BINGO!!!! Wait a minute though, numbers were OK yesterday. Maybe what you say is right, and the calculation of the stats is delayed through the critical time-outs?

The number of posts for this month is quite low at 2519 at the moment. I hope that the number of posts would increase this month. I also have not been very active recently compared to some time ago. Let's try to get above 2946 posts this month although it is unlikely that we would surpass this in a few days.

You're right twotrophy. Looks as though it can go lower too. Still we're into the thousands of posts per month. So we should probably be happy with what we have and that we're not completely dead yet. Some of those posts are pretty good as well.
sonam
We need something more attractive for new members. Lot of web space and bandwidth is not enough. Waiting for domain or new account is not good. But like deanhills wrote we are not dead jet Smile

Sonam

We're at 2652 posts so far. Still more than a day to go to end of 30 June. Can' believe how low the number is however. I genuinely thought we'd get to 2900 plus. Looks as though Nick2008 is the closest so far.

Posting indeed seems to have gone down. Bondings should probably try to look at this more carefully

Lowest posting month ever in Frihost's history. Aside from the first month which had less than 300. That's depressing.
Maybe it's us who are depressing, to the point where no one wants to post for fear that they may be sucked even further down into our pit of despair

Ok, no. That's just stupid. Who thinks of shit like that?

d'oh!

Alright, It's July. The first day of the backside of the year, I'm willing to consider it a perfect time to start over. To move on in a new and positive direction. To throw open the shutters and yell for everyone to hear, "I'm Indifferent As Hell And I'm Not Going To Take This Anymore!"

Or not. But I do realize that no one wields more influence over my emotional state of mind than me, myself, and I. But I think I'm getting old and that's one of the memories that I don't always recognize.. LOL

OMG I am in ramble mode today. Pay no attention to the woman behind the keyboard. I'm just sayin....

There is no "This contest is being repeated for the month of July" at the beginning of this thread... I'm to late aren't I? It's GONE.. alllll goooone.

OK, you've got me motivated and inspired obp. Let's go for July. Let's burn away with posts!
deanhills
OK, this is confirmation. We are having a repeat of the Guess the Number of Posts Competition for July. Since there has been no winner since May, 50 coins will be added for each of May and June, as well as 50 coins direct from _AVG_ for a total of 200 coins. The winning number will the the one closest to the actual number of posts but not by less than 10 posts. If the guess is out by larger than 10 posts, we'll just carry the coins over to the next month. Numbers cannot be duplicated within 10 posts of any of the numbers that have already been submitted.


These are the entries that have been made for July so far:

Sad indeed! Thanks for the number. At least you're being optimistic for this month. If we're going to decline to averages of around 60 posts a day, am enormously afraid we may even go as low as 2200.

@Truespeed. This is a really bad month. We've just made it past 1000 and it's almost half way July! Wonder whether we are going to get to 2000?
truespeed
@dean,I think with July having 31 days we should get over 2000,unless the second half of the month totally collapses posts wise,but I am still going to guess low with 2325.

Looks as though we've made it over 2000. Great relief. That would have been the worst for me to happen. The posts to be below 2000. Am typing this at Schiphol Airport. Next post will be in Vancouver. Cool
tsganzorig
so i guess it 3327. i like this number so much.
ducksite
what about 4102 ?
does it vary every month? it's summer holidays now, so less?

@tsganzorig and ducksite. Submissions for the July contest ended on 22 July. You're welcome to participate in August however.

The number of posts has just crept into the 2300 mark, so unless the forum remains pretty empty for the next couple days, I was a little shy with my guess... Sad
deanhills
I'd say Peterssidan may stand a good chance. I don't have a feel timewise here must be end of 30 July in the timezone I usually am in (whereas very early morning 30 July here now), but there may be one whole day left with potential of perhaps 70 posts or so, maybe more? Peterssidan may just make it. After that I think it could be too much of a gap for the next entry. BUT given the very large fluctuations in numbers of posts per day, we may just be surprised yet.
deanhills
This is EXCITING! When I logged in the post count was EXACTLY 2381 - which is LxGoodies's number. Darn! Looks as though the day has not finished yet. Or has it? By my estimation maybe three more hours to go? So could turn out to be Peterssidan.
Peterssidan
I'm not sure what time zone is used exactly but it's more like 10 hours left so I don't think I will win.
cybersa
I think this month nobody will win this contest.
deanhills
Looks that way. Thought the day had ended, but not yet. It's at 2400 now.

Righteo. And I don't blame any one. If one looks at the daily numbers, they fluctuated enormously. Very difficult to make a prediction when this is happening.

So hope every one is game for a next try for the month of August for a BIG prize of 250 coins. 200 coins from me and 50 coins from _AVG_.

As before, the winning number will be the one closest to the actual number of posts but not by less than 10 posts. If the guess is out by larger than 10 posts, we'll just carry the coins over to the next month. Numbers cannot be duplicated within 10 posts of any of the numbers that have already been submitted.

Looks realistic. I don't know why, but I just have this feeling we may get to 3000 this month. Don't know why. Because that is unrealistic. We'd have to make at least a 100+ a day to get to that from now until 31 August. Average now appears to be around 66 posts per day for a total of 2063.

Am wondering the same thing too. Didn't figure in the spam posts though. I'll look more kindly on those kitchen unit posts from now on. Guess we're not allowed to strike up conversations with them though. Razz

OK looks as though these are our final entries for August. Let's see how we do!

I don't think even with spammer's help that we will make 1800 post. Everybody is too busy with their FB and Twit to post here anymore.

I am on holiday and here is not good Internet connection. I will come back on 1. st September but this is not main reason for less posting. My business use lot of my time and I am concentrated on it. I think there is not only FB and Twit problem then school, work, etc.

I think the decline is down to the absence of Bondings and the slowness in accepting hosting requests and domain requests,there is a thread on here where people have been waiting over 6 months for a domain,it is only natural that these people will just give up and look elsewhere.

You couldn't have said it better for me Truespeed. My thoughts exactly. I'm wondering whether I can't just offer to buy the people domains from my own pocket. Maybe I should start a thread somewhere so we can check who have domains outstanding?

I don't really think the users of the forum should be paying for the domains of other users,if upon sign up you are promised a domain on the understanding that you can purchase one for points then that should happen.

Personally I think Bondings should remove the "free" domain option,as they are not issued in a reasonable time frame,by reasonable I mean within a week of request.

Having said that Dean,if you're feeling generous,I am sure those waiting for their requests to be filled would be very grateful should you decide to buy their domains for them.

Very kind and generous of you, Dean. You could always do the gift card (codes) like Bondings does here.

I have not had a problem with Bondings taking care of my domain. I put in my request early enough before renewal. I do know that there were problems with gift codes working properly and Bondings was considering of using a different registrar.

I had quite a long wait. But during a strange time when we were not sure where he was. And I was not really that desperate for a Domain either. And then when he issued GoDaddy Coupon details to me, he did mention what you've just mentioned as well. GoDaddy doesn't do the gift coupons any longer. So if he runs out of the gift coupons, he'd have to search for an alternative way of giving the domains. I've always wondered why he just didn't become a reseller for GoDaddy with Frihost. But that would take time I guess to set up.

Barely made past 1900 post with spammer's help during a 31 day month. So sad! Sad
Looks like no winner again.

Sadly I see a trend so my Sept guess will start at 1750 and probably work it's way lower.

The deadline for submissions was 22 August Naysro. So unfortunately your guess for August has to remain at 7654.

These are the entries for August:

Number so far for August is 1935. Looks as though Cybersa may be the winner for August.

Frihost was getting regular 3000+ posts a month as recently as April,so to drop so far so fast is quite dramatic really,I never thought a forum like frihost would drop below 2000 posts a month.

Traffic doesn't seem to have been affected however,so I guess the forum is still earning to the same degree so from a site owner point of view on the surface everything may seem ok,.

I'm hesitating with running a contest for September. What do you guys think? Should we run it for September. If I get more than two positive responses let's go for it. Prize will be 300 coins.

standready
Might as well. I am really disappointed with September's start. Less than 50 post per day. At that rate, only 1500 for the month. I think my guess is already too high.
deanhills
OK Stand. Your voice counts for 10. Let's go for it! Very Happy

We're repeating our contest for September. Same rules apply with added coins. The prize for September will be 300 coins. 250 coins from me and 50 coins from _AVG_. The winning number will be the one closest to the actual number of posts but not by less than 10 posts. If the guess is out by larger than 10 posts, we'll just carry the coins over to the next month. Numbers cannot be duplicated within 10 posts of any of the numbers that have already been submitted.

Going in early this month with 1776(since I missed last month). I wish I was able to post more last month, but I didn't have access to the internet for about a third of the month. And on days I did, I was busy.

Here's hoping we do get over 2000 this month. Cool

That's awesome, thanks very much William. Looking forward to the posts. I think at this rate we're definitely going to make 2000. I'm already seeing the Politics and World News Sub-Forums humming. Handfleisch is blowing life into discussions there. Very Happy

I think he means how current events can have an effect on posting rates in sub-forums like Politics and World News. There's a fair bit going on in the outside world at the moment. Razz

Still, not sure how you would gauge that. Number of news stories? Significance of the news (subjective)? How it's trending on Google?
truespeed
Frihost seems to exist in a vacuum,major news stories seem to pass it by,with only the random select few getting a mention. So I would say world news has little to no impact on the post count on frihost,

This number has already been taken. You have to be at least 11 posts different from the numbers that have already been chosen. Reason being that the winning number is plus or minus 10 of the number given. So yours have to be 11 posts different from any of the numbers that have already been chosen.

Looks as though there's been a slight surge in posts over the last few days. Some of it genuine with new people making bulk posts to probably get their "hole in one" (wonder whether they've been disappointed). Any way, we're now at 1226, so there's a slight chance we'll make 2000. Codegeek seems to be closest in that region for now.

Amazing how the number of posts fluctuate - this has been the day to day record for September so far:

Getting interesting now - 2306 posts and just little less than a day to go. Winners may be either William or Peterssidan? We're at 23 posts right now, and looks as though total may be 50 or 60 posts? Probably William, but if there is a spike in the average of the posts over the last three days, then closer to Peterssidan.

Getting interesting now - 2306 posts and just little less than a day to go. Winners may be either William or Peterssidan? We're at 23 posts right now, and looks as though total may be 50 or 60 posts? Probably William, but if there is a spike in the average of the posts over the last three days, then closer to Peterssidan.

I think you should just post and post and post! Surely you can set it to get the win Smile Haha

And ..... *drum roll* ..... the winner is ....... Peterssidan! Well done! Applause

Also thank you to every one for participating. Cool

Total number of posts for October are 2367. Making Peterssidan the winner at 2362.



Can I go ahead and deposit the winnings in your account Peterssidan?
Peterssidan
I won? Surprised ... Smile Very Happy

Thanks deanhills. Yes, you can send me the coins.

Seems like my coins are building up. I guess I'll have to arrange more contests...

OK, let's go for another competition in November. 50 coins for the prize. Same rules apply. The winning number will be the one closest to the actual number of posts but not by less than 10 posts. If the guess is out by larger than 10 posts, we'll just carry the coins over to the next month. Numbers cannot be duplicated within 10 posts of any of the numbers that have already been submitted. Deadline for submission or change of number of posts is 22 November.

Because of the vast range of the guesses, it makes the average guess about 16500... Which I would say would be a pretty decent guess for the 2013 contest Very Happy

The degree of error will also inevitably increase. Thus if this were to be implemented, one possible adjustment to make is to multiply the current error range by 12 so guessing x covers the range [x - 120, x + 120]

Yeah, the range would have to be larger. Why not make the range infinite and just pick the closest guess? A contest that runs once a year really should have a winner in my opinion.

Do you think the gap between guesses should be greater than on the monthly contests?

True. Your guess is just slightly more than last month's final number of 2335. The number to date with slightly more than five days to go still is 1648. Difficult to predict as the server could well go down again. But wonder whether we'll get to 2300. We've done well post wise when Frihost was up, scoring numbers on the other end of 50, but we'd have to really excel in the region of 100 a day to get to 2200.

1842 and almost two days still to go. Posts have been slacking. Truespeed may be our next winner. Peterssidan stands a great chance. What's the odds of winning twice in a row! Very Happy

You're right of course Peterssidan. But it was nice to see the encouragement by Cybersa. I probably needed some feedback that the competition is still viable. Very Happy

I was taking the holidays into account,I can't see many posts over the xmas holidays,and also we are only just over 500 for 10 days,so if that replicates throughout the month and you throw xmas into the equation,that is what I came up with. Smile

Agreed. I checked the daily number of posts after I wrote my comment to you and there were two days in the twenties. Darn! It's going to be very low if we keep this up.
deanhills
The daily posting numbers at Frihost are really erratic. From being really low for the first two weeks, we're back to well above 60 a day hitting 100 one day. So wonder whether fate is listening to me and we're going to go for a nose dive tomorrow?
deanhills
Only four entries! Hope there will be a few more. Deadline for submissions is 21 December .... winter solstice day.

We're doing much better than during the first few days and are on 1213 posts. These are the daily posts to date:

Thank you Johans, but the deadline of the contest was 21 December. We're also already at 1703 posts with four days to go. There may be a chance we'll get to 2000, or just miss it.

Not sure whether the contest is still viable as not that many entries were submitted during December. However, we have had two months with no winners and the coins have to be carried over to the next month. The prize for January will therefore be 150 coins.

As per the usual rules, the winning number will be the one closest to the actual number of posts but not by less than 10 posts. If the guess is out by larger than 10 posts, we'll just carry the coins over to the next month. Numbers cannot be duplicated within 10 posts of any of the numbers that have already been submitted.

Deadline for submission of number of posts is 22 January.

We forgot to celebrate our 1st year anniversary. Sad
Shall we celebrate 1st year anniversary this month with more coins or any other thing?
Thanks very much for the hard work Cybersa. Can't believe we've been at this for so very long!

OK, we should do something for the anniversary. Will put my thinking cap on for it!

Got some idea from your post.

Making a list of winners for each month including previous month and update it on first post.
@deanhills what do you think about this?
I can help you to make this list.
That sounds awesome cybersa. Would be great if you could make the list many thanks. Cool


It will be interesting to write how many coins gain each winner. Wink

October - Peterssidan receives 50 coins
November - no winner - 50 coins transferred to next contest
December - no winner - 100 coins transferred to next contest

Then i had donated 50 coins to contest by these post:

http://www.frihost.com/forums/vp-1147098.html&highlight=#1147098

Wonder whether we're going to make 2000 this month? We've had a real slow week posting wise and are at 1746 posts with a few hours left for 28 January. We will need approx 85 posts per day from 29 to 31 January to make it to 2000.

I hope so Cybersa. Hope we make 85 posts today.
deanhills
1839 posts at start of 29 January. Looks as though we're going to make it to 2000 although only just. This is going to be an interesting competition since there are quite a large number of contestants who submitted numbers in the region of where the final number may end up:

1999 and a few hours to go still for 31 January. We're going to make 2000 after all. Looks as though we're moving in the direction of Nick2008's number now.
Peterssidan
We reached 2000 thanks to a high post count on the last day of January. Unfortunatly it looks like we don't have a winner this month.

Only four (+ ten) difference. Brick wall

Right. Just a few numbers short. Darn! But at least happy we made it across 2000. Was touch and go and thanks to a record post count on the last day - 31 January = 95 posts.

Again, MANY THANKS for those who participated. Cool
deanhills
The contest is being repeated for February. Prize will be 200 coins. 50 coins for this month plus 150 coins that has been carried forward from the previous no-winning months.

This contest is being repeated for the month of February for a prize of 200 coins. The winning number will be the one closest to the actual number of posts but not by less than 10 posts. If the guess is out by larger than 10 posts, we'll just carry the coins over to the next month. Numbers cannot be duplicated within 10 posts of any of the numbers that have already been submitted. Deadline for submission of number of posts is 22 January

You're right Peterssidan, what I meant was at one point towards the last week it didn't look as though we were going to make 2000. It was the record posting on the last day of 95 posts which helped us break through 2000.

Could well be but one never knows, I'm hoping for the best. However, I will also be traveling from 16 February to 27 February. I'll try and post as much as I can but there may be the odd day I won't get to the Forum. Hopefully Blaster will do some extra posts and we get some or other surge in interest somewhere.

My guess for Feb is 1992

Have to remember that Feb has less days. Also picked that number as it is my birth year.

Thanks for picking up on that. The 2000 entry was Truespeed's. So your 2002 number is too close to his. You'll need to revise your number so there is a 10 post gap.

The people are coming,but if they are waiting too long to have an account created they just move on,the ones who have been here a while can try to keep up the post count,but without the influx of new members with hosting,then this time next year we could be looking at minus 1000 posts per month.

The solution is really simple,get account creators creating new accounts,quickly,once new members have them,they have to post,and the more of them there is the more posts there will be.
Blaster
When we can figure out how to get negative posts created I'll be amazed. But you're dead on truespeed

Well we've at least passed 1400 posts. Will be interesting to see whether we can make 1500. Looks as though Blaster or Codegeek may be the winner for this month.

True and agreed - this was one of the lowest post months in a very long time, particularly if one checks the daily count.

Looks as though Blaster is the winner of this month's competition and 200 coins (accumulated over four months - 3 months of no wins). Well done! Coins on their way.

Applause

Here is a record of the winners from December 2012 when the contest was started. Can't believe we considered 3700 posts at the time as a low number of posts.

Quote:
Winner - Month - Guess
Mathiaus - December 2012 - 3700 50 coins (donated his coins to pot)
William - January 2013 - 3755 100 coins

Slept through last month, so going in early with 1847, which I do believe is the year doughnuts dawned upon us (I might be completely wrong, but 1847 is reminding me of doughnuts, so I'll just be moving right along).

Isn't it 100 posts? At 1492?

March ended early this year. Wink 1418 posts is a new record low but with all the server downtime it's not as bad as it looks. I think it was a pretty good month actually.

I thought so too. Although we started slow for the month, we had been going quite strong at the time when the Server started to go down. Blaster was posting with gusto as well.

Looks as though there was no winner for March. So will transfer this months 50 coins to April competition for a 100 coins.

Rules are the same: the winning number will be the one closest to the actual number of posts but not by less than 10 posts. If the guess is out by larger than 10 posts, we'll just carry the coins over to the next month. Numbers cannot be duplicated within 10 posts of any of the numbers that have already been submitted. Deadline for submission of number of posts is 22 April.

Let me kick off the April list with 1600.

I think I will let my 1492 ride for this month. Sad!

794 at the half way point. I'm gonna let mine ride out but I guess I gotta get to posting a bit more to make it up.

Let's keep posting to increase the number of posts this month, so someone could hit his/her guess! Smile
Blaster
Throw in your guess then. We still have time before the contest closes for the month.

We did have a few days of downtime that really hurt the forum. I still see 1600s possible for this month though.
deanhills
You're right Blaster. I've just worked out our average daily posts up to 19 April at 52 (total posts to date are 994). So if we keep this up .... maybe just a touch more than 52 a day, we'll get to 1600. The log below says we've been well above that for the last two days.

I doubt the server will go down in a while. The down event we had at end of March and first day of April was out of the ordinary. We were also incredibly lucky as some people are still searching for their missing servers from BurstNET. Razz

Looks that way Blaster. We're at 1537 right now. Still a number of hours left for 29 April. If it continues this way we may get to 1700.

Possibly codegeek to win.

1590 takes it for the month of April. May has an extra day and so far no downtime so I'm gonna give my guess for may as 1701
deanhills
Indeed! Codegeek was the winner for the April contest - just made it on the dot of 10. Congratulations Codegeek - have sent 100 coins to you Applause

By the way this is Codegeek's second win. His last win was in September 2013.

Also MANY THANKS to all of those who participated - makes the contest totally worthwhile. Cool

So the contest is being repeated for the month of May for a prize of 50 coins. As per previous rules the winning number will be the one closest to the actual number of posts but not by less than 10 posts. If the guess is out by larger than 10 posts, we'll just carry the coins over to the next month. Numbers cannot be duplicated within 10 posts of any of the numbers that have already been submitted.

@Stand. You're right, although not much of a difference from 1492 to 1590. On the other hand now we're under 2000 posts a month moving towards 1000, 100 posts are beginning to sound much more significant. Crying or Very sad

As low as that? Was hoping Chasbeen's Sweepstake would improve things a little.

Can't believe we're moving towards 1000 posts. Crying or Very sad

At least it makes the numbers look more positive. Thanks. Cool

I'm changing my guess last minute to 1305... Sad to say but doesn't look promising past that.
deanhills
You're right Blaster. Last night I thought we were doing better with posts, but that turned into wishful thinking when I checked the stats. 1305 is quite optimistic. Have made the change. Guess we've just passed the deadline so the following are the final numbers for May. Let's hope for a total turnaround in numbers.

We've just cleared 1000 posts with most of 27 May still available. We're at 1090 posts. So if we are positive and maintain an average of 50 posts per day until 31 May 5*50=250 we may make 1340 plus or minus. May be Blaster of Peterssidan. So far. The daily averages have fluctuated quite a bit this month:

Sonam
You're right Sonam. No winner for May. So we'll carry over the 50 coins to June for a 100 coin prize.

Rules are the same as before. The winning number will be the one closest to the actual number of posts but not by less than 10 posts. If the guess is out by larger than 10 posts, we'll just carry the coins over to the next month. Numbers cannot be duplicated within 10 posts of any of the numbers that have already been submitted. Deadline for submission of number of posts or modifications of the numbers is 22 June.

OK here's our first submission for June - thanks Sonam Very Happy

Looks as though we're well over 1000, and may make it past 1500 this month. I checked the average for the first 22 days and multiplied it by 30, looks like 1580. But that can easily change ... have seen numbers nosediving towards the end of the month. So anything is possible. Including 1580.

over 1200 at this time and I missed getting my 1492 back in the pool. darn! would have missed anyway.

Probably going to have a detrimental effect on the post numbers as well. There may be some missing posts and entries in this month's competition too.

I've just written to Bondings (essentially a one-way communication but I keep on writing any way Razz) with regard to the posts issue with posts being grabbed and probably posted to two different databases. Think I'll wait for a day or two before I report this problem too. Keeping fingers crossed that if the problem I wrote about is fixed, then this one will be fixed by default too.

That's an excellent choice. I was thinking just that last night. Provided Bondings doesn't make an appearance of course. Razz

Here's an updated list - but it IS a mess. I've just noticed that I've switched from one server to another during this posting session. I had posts earning in the fifties points, and all of a sudden was back to 45in the same posting session. I must have been making my posts for today on a different database.

It seems the bug in the database has not been fixed yet. Perhaps the data is being recorded, but not displayed? If it is so, then maybe the post count will go up all at once.
william
I'm confused, when I last looked at the post stats for this month (some time yesterday), it was somewhere in the 600s. Razz This is particularly strange because posts that were missing yesterday are present today.

1234. There, that should do.
deanhills
@Codegeek. Agreed. Provided Bondings is back from where he is by end of July as I get the feeling he's on holiday or something. In which case Truespeed will have picked the winning number. Razz

@William. Something is up with how Bondings has configured the name servers. After the move of the Forum from US to Germany we seem to be posting from two databases. Kind'a weird I agree. Very Happy

@Peterssidan. Do you think there is a different way we could calculate the numbers other than with Bondings' Stats Tool? There's that number of "total articles" at the bottom of the Forum - 1,145,221 today. How can we figure out what the total number was on 1st or 9th of July?

I've managed to get a snapshot of Frihost home page of 3rd of July from the Web Archive. So 689 posts from 3rd of July to date? Would be wonderful if we could find the stats for 1st of July?

I think if the numbers don't reset,then we should cancel this months contest,and if the numbers don't kick in next month,perhaps like you say Dean,use the numbers at the bottom of the forum and calculate from there,unless someone can come up with an easier way.
Peterssidan
I'm not sure how accurate the number on the forum index page is. If you calculate the sum of the years on the statistics page you get 1044135 but on the forum index page the number is 1145238. That's 101103 posts (almost 10%) difference. I think it's mostly because the statistics page doesn't count spam posts and I'm not sure about posts in the moderator forum.
deanhills
Think I'll give it to 22 July, and Truespeed's suggestion is probably a good one. If Bondings hasn't done his magic with his stats tool by 22 July, we work on a Plan B for August.

Thanks for the info Peter. Maybe you could be our statistical adviser if and when we use the total stats. Use the figure on 1st of August taken at X time, subtract it from 1st of September taken at X time and 10% deduction for making allowance for spam posts?
Blaster
