Hi all ... I'll occasionally post updates in this thread about the numbers the census produces for the playerbase.

Here's a fairly encouraging bit of info. This chart shows what looks like a general trend of steady increase over the last 9 months. The weeks shown are from October of 2010 to the date of this post toward the end of June.

Another fun chart. Look at the difference between last year's first 10 days of July compared to this years. The numbers in the A and B columns show the APH (Average players per hour) for given times of the day. Fascinating to see at what places the growth has occurred. Specifically, more people are playing on Saturdays compared to last year. Also, the hours from 3:00 - 5:00 gametime have shown interesting increases.

Draw your own conclusions, but I like it!

Could we get a similar update before the end of the year or after the beginning of 2012?

Another interesting stats would be player alignment and race distributions, OCC guild activity, most visited domains etc.

Such info could perhaps reveal some issues that need to be addressed.

Completely agree with you Rhaegar. Decomposing the player information and behavior a bit more could be illuminating.

Look what nice thing I found:

Genesis auto-generated statistics could look pretty much like that in my opinion.

That's a pretty damn impressive list of spells they have available for their guilds!

Even the prime caster guild in Genesis have a pretty pathetic array of spells available compare to most of their guilds.
Would be nice to have such variety in Genesis.

Well Genesis guilds are all the same. In other mud I play there are nothing common between guilds. And they have 17 active unique guilds (Not different skill set and 2 specials, but totally different)

This weekend I plan to publish the (late) annual state of the Donut for 2014.

It will be fun to write!
