>not all that well hidden

Was the point I was trying to make. It turns out that, in addition to not doing observation before coffee, I shouldn't attempt self-defecating sarcasm either. Time for a vertically-challenged African-American.

krzysztof is not new Bill. He simply posts infrequently. Don't worry though krzysztof, nobody's eliminating you.

IMO guys, that number is really unimportant. It's just the total number of people who have registered here. Some come and go, some stay. Is it really important to assign a number to the quantity of people who stay? There's really no purpose to that number.

We're having a conversation amoung friends is all. Enjoy.

It is not necessary remove me. Don't worry, Sweet Thing, you're not going anywhere if I have anything to say about it. I think Anu is pretty much hands-off for this board; he answered my panicky question ages ago about how long PM's would stay (forever), so I can't see him* suddenly deciding to terminate memberships. There are lots of people who registered but have never posted; I'm not sure why--you don't have to be registered just to read, do you?

*The phrase "I can't see him" = saying "I can't believe that he will", = "I don't believe he will".

Dear Krzysztof ~

I have been sufficiently chastised for raising this issue that I think your membership in this board is entirely safe. My new proposal would be to remove the total number of registered users from the Main Index, as it is a less-than-useless number. I doubt if anyone would seriously object to its removal and it's loss would not jeopardize the valued of memberships of occasional posters like yourself.

As long as Anu's hard-disk capacity is holding out, I am also against deleting anything, even though I agree with the limited usefulness of the statistic. What is useful, anyway? A long time ago, in my favorite coffe-house, a philosophy-minded friend raised the question: what's the use of a fly? The answer was: just ask a fellow fly.

well, I like looking at statistics and I wish there were more to choose from! a list of members would be nice, and when people last visited, number of posts per day, and that sort of thing. only because it's interesting to look for patterns; which day of the week is busiest or most slow, etc.
only curious...

if Anu uses any sort of web counter (site meter), he (or more likely his minions) probably has that kind of data at his disposal.

my experience (though the raw numbers wouldn't come anywhere within the effective range of a supernova of those generated here) is that traffic peaks in midweek and drops off about 50% on weekends (no "daily" word then).
