Yes, we're smaller

Any chance RPGGeek can get one of those banner ads on BGG like VideoGameGeek has? I know we were asking for one of them when we launched but I never have seen it advertised on BGG. I know RPGers who are regular users of BGG who keep forgetting RPGGeek's existence (or were unaware of it to begin with).

What Screen Resolution do you use?

1366x768 11.32% (+64.14%)
1920x1080 10.69% (+77.05%)
1280x800 9.39% (-2.30%)
1280x1024 8.21% (-4.66%)
1680x1050 7.75% (+6.76%)
768x1024 6.93% (+192.91%)
1440x900 6.85% (+5.94%)
1024x768 5.84% (-15.25%)
320x480 5.52% (+102.89%)
1600x900 4.21% (+67.54%)


1366x768 is the most popular resolution... where did that come from?

The explanation:
http://www.neowin.net/news/study-1366x768-now-the-most-popul...

Widescreen monitors... ;)
Well, if you add the two 1024 x 768 resolutions together, they account for 12.77%, which is tops on the list.

Wow 210% increase in Previously Owned games...

Gamers are managing their collections far more carefully it would seem and trading far more often.

EDIT - Are these stats only for BGG or the whole site including VGG and RPG as well?

If it's all inclusive the 210% increase could be attributed to video gamers trading in old games for new.

Are you sure of the data?
The numbers of Absolute Unique Visitors, Visits and Pageviews are the same of 2011 BoardGameGeek Analytics, while the other are different. May be you prepared the new one using the old one and didn't replace them.

Oops! This is what I get for doing the update at 3am - I've updated the uniques, visits, and pageviews for 2012.
I thought it was something like that.
What I didn't note is that even the Pages/Visit, Avg. Time on Site, % New Visits and Bounce Rate were unchanged from the one of the previous year.

I must have had the relationship inverted - I updated *again* blush

Also, the collection utils are global across all sites - so yes video games could be inflating out the previously owned. I will see if I can separate the data.

Very interesting stats! Thanks for posting!

I especially welcome the number of users who track their collection here. These will quickly become regulars.

All in all, thanks for another great 2012 boardgamegeek-year, Aldie! Keep up the great work! You guys rock!!!

I wish there would be an equal great site for tracking my CD collection meeple


There are a couple different pieces of library/collection managing software that you can use. If you use Macs, there is Delicious Library. I use a PC and Mediaman.

http://www.imediaman.com/

Now, you have to enter your collection, but you can do it by SKU, title, scar the barcode (if you have a webcam, etc) and you can tell it to search a variety of websites to find the information. For example, it searches Amazon.es for my Spanish books, Amazon.de for my Rammstein collection, and so on. You can even custom add things that aren't already in a database. Oh, you have a specific edition of The Hobbit? You can tell it which one.

You further sort your collection by books, music, movies, (video)games, etc. You can "check out" books to your friends, with notes as to who has them and when you expect them back. You can add comments to various items like "signed by author" or "read it, terrible"... whatever.

When you open the program, it presents your collection like items on a shelf.

It's quite handy and I recommend it.... though adding my prodigious CD collection did take some time.

Thanks for correcting all data. Nice that you have replaced some percents with true numbers of people.

Now I can compare the last two years. I like to do such things!

Traffic Stats

2012 2011 diff.
Absolute Unique Visitors 23,017,450 17,201,123 +33.81%
Visits 67,779,577 52,032,398 +30.26%
Pageviews 502,706,623 429,700,315 +16.99%
New Visitors 22,439,319 not decl. +31.28%
Returning Visitors 45,340,258 not decl. +29.77%

2012 2011 diff.
Pages/Visit 7.42 8.26 -10.19%
Avg. Time on Site 00:08:05 00:08:42 -6.94%
Bounce Rate 39.82% 36.37% +9.51%
New Users Registered 152,317 75,602 +201%
Total Users 588,376 436,059 +34%

I marked the percents that I could not compute with a '?' and made the possible one, even if I don't see a great meaning the in knowing that there has been the double or registration that the previous year.

Where in the world do you come from?

Nations 2012 2011 diff. Population (1)
US 46.15% 46.36% -0.21% 313,84
United Kingdom 7.86% 7.62% +0.24% 63,04
Canada 7.30% 7.10% -0.20% 34,30
Germany 4.00% 4.07% +0.07% 81,30
Australia 2.82% 2.64% +0.18% 22.01 (*)
Spain 2.70% 2.89% -0.19% 47,04
France 2.31% 2.35% -0.04% 62,81 (§)
Italy 2.06% 2.02% +0.04% 61,26
Poland 1.79% 1.88% -0.09% 38,41
Netherlands 1.57% 1.58% -0.01% 16,73
Total first 10 78.56% 78.51% -0.04%


(1) Population is given in milion and is taken from this source that gives estimated numbers at July 2012 for all nations
(*) The interesting point here is that Australia and Spain exchanged their positions.
(§) The French population digit is for the metropolitan France.


What did you create?

Type of addition 2012 2011
Images uploaded 306,265 289,600
Articles posted 2,720,208 2,084,611
Threads posted 156,030 138,245
Reviews posted 6,830 7,402
Session Reports posted 5,648 6,032
GeekLists posted 11,241 10,991
Files uploaded 13,302 13,499
Videos posted 11,089 8,028
Blog posts published 8,474 6,199

I omitted the percents since I didn't know on what to base them. For instance Aldie stated a +1% for the upload of files from these numbers, so I thought it was base on numbers not available in the published reports and I omitted it.

I hope you will like it.

It is surprising to me that 1900x1200 isn't anywhere to be seen either. It used to be that all wide screen monitors came that way before monitor developers put in TV level screens to reduce cost (and quality)

I have no idea if it detects browser resolution or screen resolution. I use 1900x1200, but never use browser in full screen.

Are you also going to post the annual "Top 100 Geeklists", "Top 100 Reviews", "Top 100 Forum Posts", "Top 300 Images", etc for 2012?

I think most of us love seeing the cream of the crop from the past year, and I've enjoyed how this was done in previous years.

Just what I was wondering.

Yup. I've been an infrequent visitor here for years, but added my collection to the BGG site in 2012 and now find myself visiting here on an almost daily basis.
