    Haiko,
    Could I get a clarification on:
    5. Average daily page views per user session?

    What would be considered a user session? If I stay logged in all the time is that one user session per day even though I come and go 10 times a day?

    knight01,

    How many pages views that IP viewed within 24 hours, no matter how many times he/she returned or left within that 24 hours (on average).

    NOTE: Stats are server based and generated not forum generated (PV's per user per session I believe would be different if it were the forum's software based stats).
    Continued Success,

    Haiko

    5 Questions, closest without going over wins.
    This is not an answer yet, this is only one sure prediction...

    I predict that the one that can give the closest answers to those 5 questions is no other than Trust!

    I'm not playing, I have absolutely no idea on any of the numbers, probably would be way off anyways.

    3. How many total page views for last year?
    4. Total bytes (text only) transferred?
    5. Average daily page views per user session?
    Since I have no idea of those numbers, I am just going to use my crazy logic to come up with some numbers.

    Since the actual unique users can vary from x-factors...
    1. 21,321

    Going by the amount of lurkers...
    2. 2,517

    After checking the Cancel thread...
    3. 847,372

    If PHP could talk...
    4. 1GB

    I read more than 300 a day, but the average daily page views per user session...
    5. 50

    ------------------

    I'm done with these numbers.

    I've thought about it and my page views per session may be way to high. I'm thinking the regulars probably go through that many or more but so many lurkers probably hit just a page or two.... oh well.
