My guess is that it has slowed down over the last week due to the holidays. People aren't stuck at work and forced to surf the web!

Re: Site traffic and posters

Pretty stable month to month -- see the chart below of the past 6 months visits and pageviews.

I don't have an easy way to check the rate of new posters.

Re: Site traffic and posters

Here is the same info on a daily basis. Pretty consistent. (There were 2-3 days when we didn't collect stats right after a software update, which is why you see a few zero days there.)

Re: Site traffic and posters

Sounds about right. Here is a thread about the 100,000th post, and 2000 members then.
http://early-retirement.org/forums/i...p?topic=5743.0

Now we're a little over double that many posts, and 3100 members.

I guess this proves that perception and reality can be two different things.
