If anyone want to give me more data i don't mind crunching the stuff.
I used to do risk assessment in Morgan Stanley for 10 years before i had a career change. Still get a strange joy of pulling something meaningful out of a load of numbers.

Turtlesandwich you got me to thinking. (I do numbers for a living)

I went ahead and extrapolated Eulb's numbers to show how many people were added each day. I averaged the missing days based on the next day's number, and I went back and counted the missing days for all of December so I would have a full month.

Image

February has a couple of big days but that was when we were having issues with people joining because of the captcha if you average the first 7 days it falls within the average for the month.

based on the above numbers I put this together.

Turtle, I would not have even began to think of doing this without your input. You get full credit for this. it was a wonderful Idea. and I apologize if I stepped on your toes, and thank you again for the idea.

now if someone could post the dates of press or video releases we might be able to see a trend or something

What i want to know is how you got the graphs in the post as pictures? That's what foxed me.

Getting meaning out of a load of numbers is fun, making sense out of chaos.

I concur. I had a blast playing with the numbers.


I threw them over to paint, gave them the nice blue border for easier viewing and saved them to my desktop as a picture.

then I uploaded them to my imgbb account and posted the pictures here.

Do you have any info regarding spam? numbers of deletions per day etc
This could be added into the mix with release dates

So you got a link, and then used insert image rather than insert url?

I concur. when I was counting the December accounts I noticed the missing - deleted accounts. every account has a number that is given in sequential order. the missing numbers I have to surmise were spammers that GladDog bit.

*** EDIT *** I must have been looking at the numbers cross eyed. it appears as if the account stays even if banned

Yes

I don't have any precise data, but before they put in Captcha I was deleting between 8 and 20 accounts a DAY. Now the average is about 5 accounts a week. I was ridding the site of most of them, but I was not the only one swinging a ban-hammer...

***EDIT*** for example, on Feb 8 I banned 12 spammers. Between Feb 19 and today, we have banned a total of 11 spammers. Captcha has made a HUGE difference. Whatever the problems, it has certainly helped control the bad guys. An exception was early this morning. A guy put in about 12 posts about cosmetics overnight. He was probably posting one every 5 minutes until the never-sleeping CEO of HGC put him in his place.

Google doesn't make linking to photo's easy either. Just grab a free imgur account and use that.
