Is time-series site data available? I'd love to be able to look at historical site statistics and the effect of elections on the user base. (e.g. new registrations, political leans, post/thread count, overall activity, etc.)

I can tell you one effect of the election: mod team has a huge headache. Oy vay....

Unfortunately, there is not a simple way to get this info without extrapolating directly from the database:

Since January [significant jumps in July]
Registrations: from ~200 a month to over 300 a month
Daily activity: from ~300 in July to over 450 users a day
Posts per day: from ~2100 a day to over 4000 a day
Threads: Monthly topics from ~85000 to ~120000 threads a month

Overall
Top poster: CC with 74,458 posts!
We get over 2 million website hits per month.

I'd like to get our old stats system working again, but I've not had the energy or time. It is on the top lists to get complete.
The awesome part is that ~51% of new users continue to be active after registration up from 43% in January.

Wow, those numbers are truly staggering. Did you mean 8,500 to 12,000 threads per month? It seems odd that you would have roughly the same amount of new threads and new posts. I'd love to know how those numbers have evolved over time... this site is truly a different beast than when I first joined.

Much appreciation for all the work you guys do... the server costs must be egregious yet you still don't use ads when members are signed in. Stay classy
