I added the total user count to the top menu bar that takes into account users that are logged in as well as anonymous lurkers.

Well, that sure tells a lot about how many people use this site invisibly. I did for nearly 2 years before I took the time to join up.

Right now at 11:52pm MST only 136 out of the 720 are BGG members.

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

Presumably a number of them are just transient hits from google searches etc

Also, sometimes I come in from another computer and forget I'm not logged in until I try to submit something.

Anyway, nice work Aldie! I personally don't see how you have time to do anything in your life other than this.

More than a thousand viewers, but only 123 registered! So our ramblings get 10 times the coverage we thought!

Aldie, does the geeklist count include non-registered users then? So 2000 hits on a geeklist, or a game hitting the top 50 could be from anyone?

I've always wondered about the number logged in. I never actually enter my user name and password, as I'm "always logged in" and I just come to the main page and it says "Welcome Randy Cox" without ever going to any sign in screen. Does that mean that I'm counted as logged on 24/7?

I think the "always logged in" thing is a convenient way to think of it, but from a computer's standpoint, you just have a cookie that automatically logs you in as soon as you hit the site. I'm pretty sure you're only actually logged in when you're viewing the site.

What a fascinating tool Alexa is. My sight rocks!
Traffic Rank for tragsnart.co.uk: 1,214,955

Awlriiiight!

Dunno what that means. But I'm up (up 760,625). Dunno what that means either.

Awesome.
