We have SOOOOOOOooooo much hosting power now, we are thinking of dabbling into other things to host.  I can't promise yet, but we might be able to host personal websites for members here on PSF.  I think it's as simple as us slapping the domain name you own into our program and wa-laaa!  You'd have a hosted website.

We really are looking into this and how much work/easy it would be. :D

As promised, here are some statistics for everyone to view and enjoy and see just what PSF is doing in the background.  I would also like to send a request to anyone who is familiar with Cloudflare as we need some help re-establishing our seamless automated backups via Cloudflare.  Please contact me if you are familiar with such tools.

So let's look at some stats from the month of December and beyond.
This first graph is traffic for the month of December.  The 15th has less traffic because it hasn't been 24hrs yet, but when complete, it should be similar to the other days.



These are the top 25 visitors visiting PSF.  It shows their geographies and surprisingly, a lot of are unknown to the system. Besides the United States of America, our next biggest following is from Eastern Europe and various parts of Europe. We even get some visitors from the African country of Seychelles!! This data is just for December so far.


This is for December and the amount of traffic we have per day.


Here is PSF's traffic for the entire year of 2021 so far.  Obviously December's data isn't complete yet. As you can see, it has been a very busy year here!  Breaking records all this year compared to previous years.


This is the average visit time of people here on PSF. Sure the initial hit count is high, but it amazes me how long people actually stay here on a single visit!  Kudos to you!  Thanks everyone.


These charts show which operating system visits our site the most, followed by the web browser.  We have a large percentage of Apple iMac users who also use Safari.  Also iOS users outnumber Android users by a large margin at PSF.  Overall, phone users make up a minority of visitors to PSF.


Lastly, this graph shows us which hours of the day people visit PSF.  This is for the month of December based off the Pacific Time Zone (Los Angeles, Seattle, Vancouver, etc) which is where our servers are located. We have two busy times of day, 4pm and 9pm.  The least busy time of day is 5am.  Because.... who is waking up early if they don't have to?



Thank you for taking the time to look through these stats and I hope you all have a great Christmas season coming up.

Thank you.  I liked the stats as well.  I am curious who from Seychelles has visited so much? :D

You are welcome.  I am glad two of you enjoyed it.


Also our first new member of the year joined on January 4th! It was a spam account from India trying to sell products, this time to some school in India!  We've had a lot of India spam accounts the past few months.  We delete them all.

PSF Being Offline June 22 - June 23rd

As many of you experienced, PSF was unexpected offline June 22 - 23rd for several hours.  This was due to our hosting company, HostPapa having server issues.  So you likely experienced a timed out loading experience, or a 522 error on your screen.  As promised, when PSF has issues, we turned to our "emergency" outlets and posted the news for our viewers to see and now what was happening.  I am not sure how many even remember our emergency outlets, so I will post the links below once again.  Remember to have these tabs saved incase we ever have outraged or site emergencies where you cannot view PSF itself.  If you can think of another outlet to share our site news, let us know.

Overall, the issue seems to have been resolved.

Thank you. I couldn't get online from about noon yesterday till late that night, before I went to bed.  I did check the MLPS for info and thankfully you had some info there.  Good to have those emergency outlets otherwise I would have been wondering the whole time.

And then people like me totally forgot to look there.  I was just worried.

I'm surprised so few were talking about this.  It was a good 12-14hrs the site was offline.

I noticed it, but I said to myself that such things happen from time to time, and that surely all would be OK again soon.

I sort of just figured the site would come back too.  522 errors mean it is a hosting issue, so I sort of figured it had nothing to do with YOU the PSF admin.  I knew it was the host.  Glad they got it fixed.  I will say, I was a bit concerned after I came back 5 hrs later and the site was still offline.  I went to sleep, and the next day it was back. :)  <<<V>>>

Kikuism.  I like that. :D   [excited]

Thanks, Spam is gone!

If y'all use the "report" button on a topic, I get an instant notification.  That is the quickest way in the future. :)
