I was just curious about the usage of the Notes forums here on and therefore
I created some statistics and a ranking of users according to the number of their posts.

1) Overall statistic of posts by month through all the years since 1999 can be found here:
2) The same statistic but each year gets its own line is here:
3) The statistic for created posts during the first five months (January-May) of each year is here:
4) All posts the weekday and hour of its posting can be found here: (Central European Time)

Comments: These are the posts combined from the forums "Notes/Domino 4 and 5 Forum" and "Notes/Domino 6 Forum".
Every document ("Main topic","Response" or "ResponseToResponse") has been sorted into the proper month/year by its Created-Property.

My conclusions:
-We had a growing tendency of posts in the forums untill November 2002.
-During the last 6 months we had significantly fewer posts then the year before.
-In the 5th month of 2003 however there is again an improvement as it had nearly as many posts as the year before.

I for myself am not posting any reasons for this development nor making any evaluation, but before you do, please consider:
The development of posts to the discussions can not be easily compared to the amount of users using this product.

The values can be distorted by many factors like:
- the creation (and closing) of new discussion-forums (especially Beta-Discussions) as posts to them are not included
- during times when a new release comes out there is increased "traffic" of postings
or the new versions of Notes have so few bugs that users just dont have any problems to post :-)))

5) Here is a ranking of users by the number of their posts.

Comments: These are the posts combined from the forums "Notes/Domino 4 and 5 Forum" and "Notes/Domino 6 Forum".
The documents for the ranking have been sorted by the content of the field "From" and the Created-Property of each document.
(I hope that this shows the correct authors :-)).

Congratulations and a BIG thanks to all of you for your help and contribution. Keep up the good work !!!
Thats all.
