I'll explain the our site
first... The other day a new monk walked into our Monastery and asked a question in the Chatterbox. There were plenty of helpful monks online that guided the Initiate through regex (I think that's what it was). Right before leaving, he dropped a line:
"Thanx guys! Your site rocks! Keep it free."
I thought that was amusing and even poked vroom
a bit, "See vroom? Its OUR site now!". Then I started thinking of what this site would be like without the number good willed of monks we have. And then it occured to me that I don't have the faintest clue of how many monks there are! My point is:
Wouldn't it be nice to have a page that had current site stats up?
Maybe something that would be updated daily or weekly. The items that I'm curious about are:
- total number of monks
- total number of articles per section
- number of denied(?) articles
- demographics and % of monks by location (US,UK,BR,NL, etc)
Maybe I'm just a report freak, but I'm always curious about what's going on with our little monastery. I'm particularly interested in hits, pageviews, et al. I find those a bit boring. Does anyone else share the same interest?
