Dear administrators,
Just a warning - in the unlikely case where you wouldn't be aware of: the statistics of the site do not work correctly for several weeks. Maybe an effect of the updating of the software ? I hope this problem will be fixed, since it is interesting to follow the carreer of the pieces we place on the site...
BTW, many thanks for all the work you do for this community !

Yes the stats have been useless ever since we changed the logging of the webserver (which was necessary to prevent the site from locking up). I think I even posted a note about it. I would have fixed it long ago if only I wasn't so bone lazy.... I find I no longer much like programming in my spare time. Actually, I am pretty surprised anyone is looking at them :!:

Yes, there is at least one person doing so, but many more, I'm sure !

I hope you don't mind me reviving an old thread. Is this to do with the numbers at http://pianosociety.com/stats.html showing a sudden drop from February 2010? I wondered if this is due to the old statistics showing individual page hits and the new statistics showing sessions.

In any case, if this can't easily be fixed then the statistics page needs to include an explanatory note. Otherwise it looks as though the site has become much less popular!

I'm pretty new here, but I'm quite sure that it's Bush's fault. :wink:

The stats page is totally screwed up and no one wants to fix it. I, for one, love to look at stats, but the other admins say it is difficult to maintain and/or fix. That is an interesting observation about the site 'looking' like it is less popular, because it is as popular as ever. We would appreciate someone who could help us fix our stats!

Hello Monica,
I am not aware of the details regarding the PS process regarding server, hard-disk and so on, but I imagine the PS server is hosted by a private company (the one to which we pay some $5,000 a year or so). Can't this company resume the statistics function ? If it is a question of budget, how much would it cost ? If the cost is reasonnable, maybe a special call could be made for this ?

That someone would have to dig around in my C source code. Not a task to relish, it's quite a lump. I got fed up with it last time I tried. It's not that it is so difficult, I just can't be bothered somehow. It's too much like work :-/
I suppose if I don't fix it I should better take it off altogether. Will think about it. I had never realized so many people seem to like this functionality.

:idea: Francois may be on to something. :idea: Maybe we could all actually pitch in some money and pay somebody to 'dig around in the C source code and fix our stats. I'd be willing to pitch in.

Well you started about chipping in... I am just taking the bait.
