The stats table on the about page indicates number of topics, posts, users and likes but also active users - I would like to understand what that number means and how it is calculated. Thanks for any illuminating guidance.
I believe it is number of logged in users that touched the site in that time period, that is, they made a web request to the site with their user cookie in tow.
… or posted by email?
Thanks for the reply. It would be nice to know the precise definition if there is one available.
Why isn’t that precise enough for you? Feel free to browse the source code if needed, it’s on github.
It’s mostly the “I believe” part that made this seem like a fuzzy definition.
