October Stats

I've been accused of taking this forum over and basically killing it. I have no stats to back this up since I didn't have any statistics turned on before I switched the forum over to mtbiowa.org.

Here are the stats from AWStats parsing the log files for Oct 12. Not sure if they really mean anything but I figured I would at least let people see something and be open about it.

The Tapatalk app generated 8,800 page views in October. The rest of the ways generated about 2,000 page views. Total hits is about 22,000. I'm not sure how to decipher what it means.

I wonder if the addition of the Tapatalk app discourages interaction since it is generally harder to type/share stuff on a mobile device? Maybe I need to generate a primer on how to post from Tapatalk?

What do you think?

I personally like Tapatalk. It makes it a lot easier to see what's being discussed without having to bust out the ol' laptop. Sure it's a little harder to make lengthy replies but if I have a lot to type then I can save it for when I can do it on the laptop. Navigating forums on Tapatalk is a snap compared to doing it on the computer. Every forum looks different and has too much irrelevant data and images on the screen with ads and unnecessarily long, busy signatures. Tapatalk simplifies the interaction with forums by making them all act and look the same and removing the fluff.

I never read or post using a phone. I read once in a while in a browser on a tablet with the user agent forged for the desktop version.

Do you get a different forum version for mobile? I didn't think i had a mobile theme for the forum just for the LAMBA front page.

I think the forum is great. Even wish more clubs were under the forum umbrella. One stop shopping for eastern IS mtb info!

Also, Tapatalk is the best way to view forums. Since I check them from a variety of browsers and computers the ability to see new posts is always jacked up in everything but Tapatalk.
