    So working on the estimate that there are in the region of 3500 bands in the UK, that's about 2 people per band on here! :clap:

    (Nothing like a sweeping generalisation, is there?! :tongue:)

    What about this if u just look at the uk bands there is 3500 bands with 30 memebers average u get total 105000 and there is 7500 that really puts it into perspective

    The 7500 figure actually represents tMP user accounts and not true visitor statistics or page view statistics for these numbers of user accounts. I could inform you of another statistic i.e. unique visitors per month which is based off IP - but then I'd have to kill you. OK, it's not the 105,000 figure you mention, but half that and you're neary there.

    As for the page views/impressions created by these visitors, well across the year, from quieter times (Christmas/August holidays) through to busy times (Regionals/Pontins/Nationals/Open) the figures range is 4 to 12 per month.....

    errrrm, thats MILLION, yep 4 to 12 MILLION pages delivered by tMP per month - hence the need for a high performance, massive and expensive server !!!!

    At Pontins the "Master of Ceremonies" mentioned tMP and said there are at least 3000 members - think he understated a little!! - Well done though! I love the site! :clap: I had said to myself - if I used it regularly I would become a supporter - payment coming shortly then!!:tup

    That's an amazing statistic John. Do you have any idea how many of those hits are genuine visitors, rather than googlebots and spiders etc?

    I asked him the same question when we met it Birmingham a while ago.

    It's my understanding that these figures exclude the arachnids and such - they're 'real' page deliveries.

    or 7500/3500 = 2.14 tmpers per UK Band.

    Appreciate that some bands have more members than others but it does raise the question - are there UK Brass Bands who do not have any members on tMP?

    I would say defo because there are many tmpers not from the uk im one for a start but there are im sure people from across europe as well and even maybe even australia it might be interesting to acctually do a survey and see where all tmpers are from i would assume maybe 80% would be uk but still would be cool to find out!!!

    Yup I can think of a couple locally to me, so I guess over the whole country there are more than a few. So, you all know what to do - spread the word!

    7500 registrations is quite an achievement in four years. But there is another, probably more significant milestone looming: that of half a million posts (currently on about 485000). Half a million eh? I bet John didn't figure that 4 years ago when he set this up!

    I certainly didn't Ian, I certainly didn't, I must admit that I will be a very proud man when this occurs - whis will be sometime quite soon, this will indeed be some accomplishment everyone on here can be proud of.
