    home. you should be there
    For some reason, this interests me. How does it work so that media is dispersed for views. Is it like random like how we have the 5 media on the home page? Is it purely just by chance?

    Media views only happen when someone clicks on an image to view the image page - it doesn't count if you just look at the thumbnails at the top of the page.

    You either need to view the full page (eg: Tigon - National Zoo and Aquarium - ZooChat), or you need to view the image in a lightbox (ie when you click on an image on the full page view to open it in a lightbox and then click next to browse through other images in the gallery).

    Most of the images with high view counts will be getting the views from search engine traffic - for example Google returning that image in some search results and the user clicking through to the image view page.

    It is interesting to see how the ZooChatter base has changed over time. You can see the growing presence of North Americans on the site not just from the changes in forum activity, but from the post rates. After looking at those numbers and extrapolating recent post rates based on the difference (total posts - posts as of Oct 19 2019 / days since Oct 19 2019), it seems apparent that a higher proportion of European (largely British) posters have declined in post rate while a higher proportion of North Americans have increased... and all on a site that in its earliest days was predominantly Australian!

    Did anybody ever figure out why that snow leopard picture went viral relative to everything else?

    When I get some time I'll try digging into Google Analytics to see if I can work out where the traffic to that page is coming from.

    When I get a chance to work on the 2019 annual statistics in a few weeks time, I'll post some stats showing visitor traffic based on location.

    I'm pretty sure there used to be a tab on the old forum which showed the members who had been here the longest. For still-active current members I think that'd be Sim, me, and you as the "oldest" three? Gentle lemur, boof, jay, and Hix would be in there as well.

    With a userid of 107, you're going to be near the top of that list :D

    I'll generate some stats for that tomorrow.

    I think boof was probably before me, though I used to be 'Grantsmb' originally. Kifara/Bwana f.k.a 'Jelle' is also a very longstander.

    Don't forget I used to be 'Grantsmb' before 'Pertinax'...;) and my old friend (on here) Kifaru Bwana is another longstayer, he was formerly 'Jelle'.
