I'm not sure what the full options will be . I'm waiting for some feedback as I'm installing it on my Mac test board and I'm stuck at what phrase group the new phrases have to be added to and I'm waiting or feedback.

Bear in mind - the statistics 'hack' for the forum is written by a fellow who is writing it for his forum and is sharing this work. If you want to read through the entire thread on the vB . org forum, you'll know as much as me for now.

There are some things it does not allow for - as far as I can see - such as downloading the numbers to a file. However, if it has numbers in the database they can be retrieved. Unfortunately, I'm not a php or MySQL expert - I know just enough to be dangerous. I know it can be done but I don't have the knowledge to write the php code to do it with. So far as I can tell, none of the regulars here know any more php than I do. So....

As far as Critical to Quality (CTQ) and Critical To Process (CTP) aspects, I'm open to listen to suggestions / discussion.

We can get any numbers the database has - but first we'd have to find a php / MySQL expert to write the code. And coders are expensive. I have no idea - if we defined a set of numbers we wanted to extract - whether it would be a simple US$100 job or run over US$1000 - or more...

OK. The Statistics 'hack' is installed. Look in the header graphic for the link.

On with the comments....

NOTE: This is translated from German. I still have some language cleanup to do so bear with me.

There is a lot there, I don't know how much I really need.
What is interesting is that after the 4 July inactivity that on the 7 July there was an enourmous growth.
I thought you in the states started your holidays

I'm finding a lot of bugs - some with links. A lot of translations are 'funky', which I'm working on. The page listing Polls - some of the columns are - well, I'm not going to say that page is 'accurate' yet.

It is important to remember that it is looking at some data from existing dabase info but it also added tables so some data is 'since the statistics program was started'.

It is also important, particularly right now, to look at this as a barometer and to look at the numbers and ask if they make sense. This is a hack a fellow did and I have no idea at this time what algorithms / database calls he has written. It looks well done, but as I say - I haven't gone thru 5% of all the templates and files. I'm still looking at what it's doing in many cases.

Yes - There's more info than most people will want. But it's fun to play with.

Well, I'll do a bit more but I've put over 10 hours into this already from testing on my Mac to installing here - so... I may take a nap soon.

I think that's pretty much world-wide, isn't it - summer being a holiday (vacation) time of year for most?

Here's an interesting statistic from the server's AWStats. Having watched this 'stat' for several years, it stays relatively constant. It implies that about 70% of the people that land here (at the site - not necessarily the forums) probably used a search engine and either 'got the wrong link' (wrong topic due to search terms and search engine quirks) or weren't interested in the 'format'.

The attachment - Visit Duration - is for 1 July 2004 through 8 July 2004 about 6 PM EDT (GMT -4).
