The Community at iKnifeCollector Factoids

There is nothing like iKC anywhere on the web.

When I first was introduced to this community format/technology back early last year there was no doubt in my mind it would make provide for (cause "WE" are the community)- the next generation knife collector community. I'm also going to guess it will remain the most cutting-edge technology until the real geeks of the world make it so we can show our knives to each other in 3-D or High Def, or until we can use all of our 5 senses to complement our web experience.

I sincerely appreciate your participation here. iKC is alive; It is dynamic. It is 24/7.

Almost daily I have members telling me how much they like our community and what it offers our hobby. Comments like this truly make my day. Thank you for helping me make our community what it is today.

For the curious, here are a few iKC factoids.

A Unique Visitor is someone that comes to the community the first time in a given timeframe. If that same person comes more than once in that same timeframe it isn't counted as "unique" instead is just a visit- like the example day I shared which was last Saturday (just used that one cause it was the last full day when I wrote the blog), but 222 people came to the site a total of 388 times- meaning many of them came back more than once in that same day.

I'll also add the 11 minutes is the average for EACH visit over the since iKC opened. So if someone hits the site and then decides iKC isn't for them and then in a matter of seconds decides to not join (I can't imagine) compared with folks like JJ, who really does live here :) It is an average over the life of the community, which is good considering the site has been visited something like 78,000 times since last April. Most people when they hit a webpage "scan" it in seconds and then click out or on to another page within the same "site."

11 minutes must be an average between me and all the folks that don't visit every day.
Also just what is a "Unique Visitor"?

(You callin me names again?)
