What was the highest number before January 2nd?

No idea. I don't look at it all that often, but I don't ever remember seeing a number above 10,000 before. This is way higher than anything I've ever seen before. *nodding*

I dunno. There was that one time McDonalds ran their Letterboxing promotion a few years back. Not sure what the web login statistics were, but I believe we added several thousand users that day!

Yes, that was probably the one-day record for new accounts. *nodding* Even the Reddit thing didn't come close to touching that record....

How many new members above the norm?

Somewhere between about 100 and 200 new members.

Speaking of which... hello, new members! If any of you are reading this! =)

How many new members above the norm?

The number of new members yesterday and over the last 7 days is always shown at the bottom of this page:
http://www.atlasquest.com/aboutus/stats/


Number of New Members:
Yesterday: 31 #This would be for Jan 3rd
Last 7 Days: 205

Compare this to the stats I posted yesterday
http://www.atlasquest.com/boards/message.html?msgId=940000;gThreadId=135862
Number of New Members:
Yesterday 141 #This would be for Jan 2nd
Last 7 Days 183

If we take the average to be 7 new members per day, then:
For Jan 2nd - about 20x above normal
For Jan 3rd - about 4.5x above normal

But McDonald's Geocaching promo was a much larger success judging by all the Happy Meal trinkets found in my geotrashed letterboxes.

What's so encouraging is McDs Wi-Fi will always connect me to Atlas Quest even when my ChromeBook can't get connected to any other internet site no matter what i google. That speaks well for AQ's technical accessibility. Overall Ryan has gone above and beyond making this site as user friendly *nodding* as Ryanly possible.

Sure shows not many talking any more. Considering the 2008-2009 of long ago, wow, what a difference, and even as much as a couple of years ago, too. Looks to me like this hobby is losing interest, jmo....sad, that...

Not necessarily--letterboxers from way back claim letterboxers and letterboxes had a special cachet just because they were so rare. One reason I can't get into geocaching is because there are so many geocaches--finding them is like finding a McDonalds.

Nobody ever reported any downtime either, so that's good. =)

Actually, AQ was just about unreachable for me on Monday afternoon and evening.

On my calendar, yesterday was a Tuesday. Hmm.... I'll have to look into that....
