It's customary and traditional that we celebrate the addition of every 1,000 new members here and share the traffic stats. This time it's a 78,000!
Despite the site being on-and-off down for nearly a week this month as you can see on the right side of the traffic graph above (the fault of Ning, our hosting provider -- you can see the sorry story of their tech issues here), we still had more than a million page views this month. We're eventually going to have to shift off Ning, but hopefully their downtime issues at least are over.
Thanks as always to all the community members who make this growth possible, and especially to the administrators and moderators who approve new members, blog posts and otherwise respond to questions and keep the website running smoothly.
