    tl;dr

  • I have some ignore questions if you can answer them.

    How many people have me on ignore?
    What is the number of ignorers the most ignored person has?
    How many people does the most prolific ignorer have on ignore?

  • Not everyone will have seen that.

  • YOU DON'T HAVE ME ON IGNORE!

    I feel warm on the inside

  • How many people have me on ignore?

    Knowing this isn't good for your mental health.

  • In all honesty my mental health is not linked to this place. It's more to understand how I come across.

  • What have you done for people to have you on ignore?

  • taking the mick out of liverpool supporters

  • Well, very little. I suspect the number is low. I know of one, I was mean to him.

  • There is this. I do it with love in my heart tho.

  • Hatred, I mean hatred.

  • Wow, thread looks so much cleaner.

  • Have post numbers gone up this year?

  • Yes, by Amey and Phildas.

  • What do these numbers say now? Is this site a dying relic to 2007s hottest trend or are cargo bikes breathing new life into some near dead dogs?

  • Great timing on asking.

    And probably yes... a dying relic like most of us are as we age towards 30, 40, 50 or God forbid 60 or more.

    The great timing is that yesterday I started to research how to upgrade the ancient database from PostgreSQL 9.2 all the way through to PostgreSQL 14, as well as updating the machines themselves from Ubuntu 14.04 LTS to Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.

    I'm doing this so that I can make a demo of a Grafana feature, I need demo data and these servers can provide that. But... I've also thought about how Rapha ask me every year for engagement numbers, and how I could answer that more easily with a Grafana dashboard. So over the next week or so I am going to be making a Grafana dashboard to summarise where the site is at now... and it will be able to supply the information for this thread too.

  • Perfect.

  • Early surprise from testing on the backup database... slow decline in 2018 and 2019, a resurgence during COVID that took us near peak again, and although a post-COVID decline has ensued we're more like 2015 than 2019 in terms of numbers.

    This is preliminary and not based on a complete dataset yet.

  • Exciting news!

  • Had a quick look but couldn't see it mentioned, but what has been the busiest day of the forum in page views/posts - Is it still 31st July 2012? Can it be linked to a particular thread?

  • How long ago was DBAD?

    What year is it?
