    Do you happen to have any data on new member joining rates e.g. month to month?

    Not off hand, I'd have to manually go through what little forum stats I have access to, eg we've had 8 new members join this month and 4 in the last 3 days of April, that's as far back as I can see.

    Edit to add: that information may be available to all members by clicking on the Members button in the menu under the Silver Stackers banner, and then on the right hand side of the screen we have Newest members. Not sure if you can see that, or if it's just an admin thing.

    I do feel that this site with some love and investment would be much better though, this can be said about most things....

    I'd be curious to see charts of member join rates during the last few bull runs. Definitely seems like just a small bunch of active members at the moment.

    I know I haven't been on here very long, but it's seemed like there's been just a few core members anyway - some new people have come and gone, but the 30 or so main ones are still here and doing their thing :cool:

    And it will be gangbusters again.

    Just waiting for the Dow and Gold to both go to 5000, and for the cryptos to lose another 90% of their "value".

    Then it will be game on again!

    Patience gentlemen, some of us are in it for the long haul.
