page-view winners 2017

Note the style of hype on our little niche site:

A "super-page" is one that is viewed on average at least once a day.

A "para-page" gets viewed on average twice a day or oftener.

A "meta-page" gets viewed on average thrice a day or oftener.

A "hyper-page" gets viewed on average four times a day or oftener.

After that, I've run out of prefixes (and colours).

news flash re july figures

July was a record month for usage of the site:

13,856 page views, by 1,877 individual users making 5,885 separate visits.

The previous records were: 13,117 page views (June), 1,676 users (June), 5,651 visits (June).

Admittedly, July has one more day than June - but the records were already broken by the 30th July.

A substantial advance in users; marginal advance in the other categories.

There has been a great increase in the number of views of the Home Page; I dare say this is due to the influx of 200 new users.

Mars and Venus surged so well that they have gone up from the green into the blue (from Para to Meta status).

The Moon has gone up from black to green (Super to Para).  Callisto, after its anomalous surge last month, has done the reverse and slipped back down from green to black.

May saw a record grand total of page views: 11,864.
The number of individual visitors was 1,456.  This comes second to March's 1,555.
But these 1,456 visitors made a record number of visits: 4,876 (as compared to March's 4,427 and April's 4,296), suggesting that our community is steadily becoming more habituated to the site.  Let's hope we can get some more people to come forward and contribute their views.
