I really like seeing these stats. Is there any way I could see a screenshot of the more detailed rundown? I'm especially interested in the documents people are downloading.

This ended up being more difficult than I thought. As you can see in the January 2019 Downloads below, the full downloads document names are cut off. I could widen the Downloads column on the chart but it only created space after the file names which never changed where the ellipses begin. I researched online about how to adjust it and I just could not come up with anything that works. And I probably shouldn't have created all the files with spaces in the names because the system just adds the "%20"s so each space takes up three characters and it is not easy to read, but I didn't think of taking out the spaces when I created the Document Library page and it would be a lot of hassle to redo everything now. So I'm sorry that sharing this every month doesn't seem very practical.

Anyway, the Hits are the number of complete downloads, and the 206 Hits are the partial/interrupted downloads. The two 6s and one 8 could represent interrupted downloads that ended up being completed. Interrupted downloads used to be a lot higher but they are almost non-existent now. The top download for the second month in a row is the Saga Unknown Regions conversions document.

I'm kind of surprised that the conversion guides still seem to be as popular as they are. Gry, Forceally, and I finished those up nearly a decade ago.

I just checked my local files. I started working on conversion rubrics for starships in 2007. We had our first file go live in 2008. The Galaxy of Intrigue conversion came out in May of 2010, and it looks like I created the index for the final products in 2011. So it's only been nine years since the last book. Eight since the index. But most of it was done between 2008-2009.

True but they only just became more easily downloadable through the Pit. Before the RP Library, the difficult 4shared download links were buried in threads.

True, but there are still alternate means of downloading them. Still, it seems like the downloads are fairly high traffic even with "competing" download links out there. That's what kind of surprised me.

Of course, there have always been multiple other sources to get most of these documents. But these documents having 46-101 downloads are not that surprising when you consider that in the same time period the site had nearly 6,000 unique visitors with well over 15,000 total visits. Comparing the download numbers to that, only a small fraction of visitors are downloading any documents. Out of the much larger number of visitors not downloading any documents, yes we can presume that a good number of those already have all the documents they want from here or other sources. But with the visitor numbers as big as they are, it is statically safe to presume that every month those visitor numbers include a number of brand new visitors to the site and visitors that don't already have every document they want from other sources. And I'm sure there are occasional computer crashes and people come to rebuild their collections, and people that just can't find documents so download them again. In January, 1768 RP web pages were accessed directly from Google.com searches, and that is just the primary Google so that number doesn't include Google Canada, Google UK, etc. The least downloaded document in January, D6 Fantasy, had 5 full downloads.

I see almost every post here and I had no idea this website got that much traffic until I searched out these stats to report AJ download numbers. Now I am well aware that the VAST majority of visitors here are lurkers who do not ever post. Looking back to when I took over the Pit, we got similar numbers of visitors from all over the world, well before the Library existed. Since a lot of the monthly unique visitors are definitely repeat visitors from the previous months, the Rancor Pit is a major worldwide hub for our niche little hobby of Star Wars D6. I'm sure we get new lurkers all the time.
