we have lost quite a few posters over the years and then there are others who will appear for a few days whilst asking a couple of questions and then disappear again for ages

plus quite a few who only come on here when there are local issues to them for discussion

I think Brummie retired and Blackpool visits the site about once a year because he's only interested in local stories :wink:

Most people look, and don't post.

Back some years ago I belonged to another thriving forum - we used to wind each other up mercilessly, it was good fun. However it was mentioned that the topic that it was founded "Traffic Law", on was not enough to keep it going on its own and that we needed to introduce other interests - to keep interest. The idea was binned by one or two who wanted the forum to be predominately about what it was! Time went by and the membership drifted, it lost the interest because you can only talk so much about a given subject...........are we getting there? or is it because there was a lot of other distractions over the Christmas/New Year period.

I would hazzard a guess that the last real interest on here, (numbers of members having an input), was "Political", and not Taxiing.

I suspect that was due to a link shared around by many rather than everyone desperate to read up on our rubbish.

Never really bothered to look at the stats, but for December 2016 we had 38,069 unique users, and 1,623,012 hits.

If we allowed more than two bots to search TDO then it would be more, but google and Bing is enough.

I'm guessing most of the traffic is from searches to the vast database, as TDO is 13.5 years old. :shock:

Also I only allow a fraction of those that request it, entry to the forum.

Goodness know how Mr TT got in.

Following on from that you only have to look in the 'Restricted Numbers' section to see some posts that have had 10/20,000 views.

Similar for the 'TDO Court Case Database' section, where Galden has over 27,000 views, and Man-v-King 10,000+.

So whilst we do spend time talking rubbish, occasionally some of it helps those not wishing to talk such rubbish. Image
