Despite a surge in spam late in the week, the overall amount of spam we're seeing is less than half of what it was - that said, the number of people signing into access their UKMIX account remained very stable, with 785 people
signing in and accessing their account this week (down just 0.2% on last week).
The number of people posting increased substantially this week, as 441 people made at least 1 post
- that's an increase of 7.5% on last week and it's the highest weekly number we've seen so far, up 3.5% on the previous peak seen in week 3 (when 426 people posted). This has an amazing influence on our important impact rating which increases for the 2nd week in a row to 56.1% (up a massive 4.0%)
- the highest impact rating we've seen so far!
And for the first time since we started tracking this 8 weeks ago, we topped the 8k mark! This week, our community made a whopping 8,871 posts
- this represents a huge increase of 11.1% and smashes the record we achieved last week. Talking Points
After 2 weeks of him not topping the chart, we welcome back to the summit Nippian93
who makes 337 posts - increasing his week-on-week activity by a stupendous 293.0%! This is Nippian93's 6th week at #1 (out of 8 weeks of the chart) meaning he's been our #1 poster for 75% of the time! Nippian93's 8 weekly post count stands at a mighty 2,600 and he is one of only 2 posters to be certified 2x Platinum. Congratulations to Nippian93 this week for jumping through the 28k mark with yet another milestone!
With his post count activity decreasing by 28.6%, your #1 for the last 2 weeks drops to #2 this week - MusicRecords
makes 293 posts! This is the 11th highest weekly tally (equal to borderwolf's 293 posts achieved in week 6) we've seen thus far and it takes MusicRecords 8 weekly tally to 1,935 posts! He almost gains a 2x Platinum certification but for now, he remains 1x Platinum! MusicRecords smashes through the 9k mark this week, achieving his next milestone - congratulations!
Trailing MusicRecords at #3 - but only just - we have borderwolf
who makes 292 posts! This tally is down 2.3% on last week but it's not all bad news - with his posting tally of 292 posts, he achieves a 2x Platinum certification as his 8 weekly post count climbs to 2,126 posts! For the second week in succession, borderwolf ascends the "all-time" chart, climbing to #19, edging tada down 1 spot! Congratulations to borderwolf also for achieving another milestone this week - he crosses the 36k mark!
Having previously peaked at #5 on three occasions, Shaka
finally achieves a new peak this week climbing to #4 with 229 posts (a new personal best - increasing his post count week-on-week by 11.1%). His 8 weekly posting tally climbs to 1,253 posts, the 6th highest of any poster! Shaka is currently certified 1x Platinum - at his current rate of posting, he is roughly 5 weeks away from 2x Platinum, the same certification Mariah Carey achieved earlier this year with her smash hit single #Beautiful.
And closing out the top 5 is another poster who achieves a new peak, RayRay
- with 217 posts made, up 43.7% on last week and his personal best weekly tally thus far, his 8 weekly tally rises to 901 posts! He is currently certified Gold, but has a shot at Platinum next week!
