The statistics shared below provide an overview of active membership signups (minus spammers, bots, and deleted members) over each period. These statistics do not take overall site traffic impressions/hits into account in any way.

Dips in user registrations can be attributed to development and refinement of the Stop Forum Spam, Captcha, and ReCaptcha systems which are designed to thwart spammers and bots.


2020: 30 (tentative, statistics generated in July 2020)
2019: 26
2018: 44

2016: 26
2015: 51

2013: 197
2012: 395
-- It is important to note that development on the Stop Forum Spam modification for the forum software was written in 2011; which weeded out much of the spam traffic we previously would see on a daily basis. --

Took a while to write the bit that output the statistics how I needed them; but I wanted to make sure that I had stats and I know some people like to see them. PLUS I wanted real world statistics on how well the Stop Forum Spam addon that I wrote was actually working.

Integrating the spam protection into the forum software would have to be one of my favorite features that I've written, lol. Definitely takes a huge load off of the staff at all of my sites.
