We are breaking records! In week 4, we saw the highest number of user sign-ins so far with 923 posters
accessing their UKMIX accounts during the 7 day tracking period, this is an increase of 6.7%
on the previous week (representing an additional 58 user sign-ins). This was undoubtedly aided by the number of spammers that we banned.
With that said, it's not all good reading! The always important impact rating for week 4 declined by a significant amount with 42.3%
of those that signed in choosing to make a minimum of 1 post. For the first time since we started tracking, less than 400 people made a post (with 391 posters making at least 1 post during week 4 - down from 426 the week previous and down further from 431 in week 2, which remains the highest tally so far).
And finally, again looking at 7 day windows only (so excluding week 1, which had a 10 day tracking period), we just pushed through the 6k mark for the first time - with 6,008 posts
made across the forum!Talking Points
For a fourth week, and having increased his post count by 2.4%, Nippian93
reigns once more as UKMIX's top poster of the week having made 339 posts. His 4 week tally stands at an incredible 1,470 posts! Since we started looking at these stats, we've covered a total of 31 days of activity (1 week of 10 days and 3 weeks' of 7 days) - therefore, 1,470 posts breaks down as an average of 47 posts per day or nearly 2 posts every hour.
Trailing Nippian93, we have MusicRecords
; for the first time in a while, MusicRecords experienced the post quota warning! He is a lesson to us all - do not sign into UKMIX whilst drunk! He increases his post count by a mighty 42.4% and his 4 week tally surges to 612 posts.
Having spent the last two weeks at #2, UKMIX chart legend borderwolf
drops a place to #3 this week with a decline in total posts of around 10.7%. Incredibly, of his 240 posts last week, just 3 were made outside of the chart analysis forums - which means he made 98.7% of his posts in the chart analysis forums! This takes borderwolf's 4 week tally to 976 posts
Trailing borderwolf is this week's highest ranked moderator stevyy
, who for the 2nd time climbs into the top 10 and achieves a new peak! With 196 posts this week - the 11th highest tally we've seen in any of the weeks so far - stevyy increases his post count by a huge 125.2%! And he is one of 7 posters to have amassed 500 posts or more during the last 4 weeks.
And closing the top 5, we have BlueScorpion
, who just last week stated he'd see a decline in post count this week; this has proven to be a little white lie as he's actually increased his post count by 15.3%! He is one of the "super 7" with a 4 week post count standing at 621 posts - the third highest tally, behind Nippian93 and borderwolf.
And finally, the moderation team's stats as far as the Hot 100 goes! As already mentioned, stevyy tops the table this week at #4! But trailing stevyy, we have: Wayne
(#6 - 146 posts), Thriller
(#9 - 104 posts), biscuits
(#14 - 73 posts), Benjamin
(#55 - 28 posts), matthew_dixon
(#70 - 23 posts), SholasBoy
(#71 - 22 posts) and tdc2000
(#73 - 21 posts),
Another point of note, this week, we have 10 posters with more than 100 posts made - the highest tally since week 1. This Week's Milestones
