|This is an official Hattrick Editorial originally published in 2006-07-03 11:00:00.|
It's time to revisit the old statistics editorial I wrote almost a year ago. A lot has happened since then and the old figures are quite outdated. I've added the figures from last year in parentheses after the current figure for easy reference. Since most are taken from a single day, they are not exact facts but rather estimates. This can be seen in that some activity figures are actually lower this year though there are more users nowadays and we're also in the summer this time, which traditionally means lower activity. By the way, there are 870.000 users now versus about 630.000 when the last editorial was published, an increase of almost 250.000! Anyways, enough of these ramblings and on to the stats.
We send out about 150.000 (35.000) emails each day. Password reminders, introduction mails and payment reminders are among the things we send out via email. About 80.000 (120.000) ht-mails are sent between managers as well.
In the conference system, about 160.000 (110.000) messages are written each day. Of those, about 45% (40%) are written in the federation conferences. Non-HT takes up 18%, series conferences 12% (20%). The all-time high of postings is from April 19th this year when 194.233 were made (what happened on this date?).
The Match engine is quite busy as well. Each week, almost one million matches are played. This translates to an average of 1½ matches per second. In these one million matches, roughly 3.8 million goals are scored. During a week, three million (one million) challenges are made. On the transfer market, around 400.000 (180.000) bids are made each day.
It's interesting as well to take a look at the usage of different language versions of Hattrick. Español is the largest language with 15% of users, Deutsch trailing in second place with 13%. English comes in third place with 8% of users. However, if we combine Español and Español (Argentina) the user share increases to an impressive 20%. Well done, all translators!
Finally, each day 1.3 million (850.000) successful logins are made by 450.000 (300.000) different users. Last week, 740.000 (520.000) different users logged on to Hattrick!
