This is the penultimate chart for 2017, and it reveals many things - not least that as Christmas approaches, activity declines!
Declining 3.4% this week, and falling to its lowest ever number - the total number of people that signed into access their UKMIX accounts stood at 706 posters
This unsurprisingly also impacted the number of posters that made at least 1 post
metric - this number fell to 387
. It's only the 3rd time we've fallen short of the 400-posters mark, following week 1 (345 posters) and week 4 (391 posters), making this the 2nd worst week we've seen thus far in terms of this metric. This has a negative influence on the impact rating
also, as that falls to 54.8%
All of this impacted our total number of posts made across the community, as that slides by a substantial 16.5% to 6,870 posts. This is the lowest weekly figure we've seen since week 5, when 6,856 posts were made. Talking Points
It's Christmas Eve tonight which means the top 5 summary will be made in quickfire form!
Taking back his #1 crown for the 9th non-consecutive week is Nippian93
- his weekly post count edged up slightly by 1.1% to 340 posts. With a 14 week tally of 4,615 posts, Nippian93 is set to become our first DIAMOND certified poster. Can he achieve this before the end of the year? 385 posts says he can't!
At #2 this week is our favourite runner-up, borderwolf
(how does that saying go - "forever the bridesmaid, never the bride"? Will borderwolf ever top the chart?). With a weekly post count that declines by a modest 4.4%, his 14 week tally stands at 3,965. He should become only our 2nd 4x Platinum certified poster next week.
Trailing borderwolf, we have heppolo
at #3 having made a mighty 272 posts (up 18.7%). This week, heppolo scores a 2x Platinum certification as his 14 weekly post tally climbs to 2,221.
Back in the top 5 and at #4 after a 3 week absence is this week's highest ranked moderator, Benjamin
! With 220 posts made (up a massive 25.0%), his 14 weekly tally climbs to 2,153 posts - he also scores a new certification this week, moving to 2x Platinum.
Closing the top 5 and achieving a brand new peak this week is everyone's favourite (the only?) Kylie Minogue stan, SummerPeur
! His post count shoots up by 25.8% to 185 posts - a new personal best - and his 14 weekly tally increases to 618 posts. He also scores a new certification this week, moving to Gold status.Top 10 Ranked Moderators#1
