Today we hit another milestone, with 8,000 members. Over the past year traffic on DIY Drones has grown more than 4x, from an average of 5,000 page views per day a year ago, to 22,000 today. We currently average 6,000 unique visitors per day. We are adding 1,000 members every 54 days (less than two months), or an average of 19 a day, a pace that is speeding up. Here are the comparable stats from Jan 5th, when we passed 7,000.

A few other stats: a little less than 10% of new members are spammers, who are usually caught and banned within minutes (the member total does not include banned spammers). 90% of people with email address turn out to be spammers!

Here's the geographic breakdown of traffic over the past year (just listing the top ten countries):

Congratulations! It's a surprising achievement considering how narrow of a topic DIY Drones covers - but maybe that's what makes it so strong! Here's hoping for 80,000 members ;)
