Just spent a while going through the forum stats and member list.

It'll let me prioritise basic stuff such as posts by number made / date registered etc. which helps but still had to randomly click on member profiles for more info.

One puzzling thing is that awful lot of joiners are showing as having never signed in again since initial registration, which I suppose can be looked at as a good thing if their purpose wasn't legit. Flip side is that trend's probably not so good for forum traffic stats.

I know absolutely nothing about how forums are created / programming... even what the correct terminology is!

Our forum has a link at the bottom to

As a complete novice all of the following info. means nothing to me but did see bullet points such as -  Integrated video embedding for youtube, vimeo and dailymotion / Drag and drop file attachments / Improved Anti Spam measures which sound vaguely relevant maybe?

Looks like there's also a dedicated forum for people using their set up.

Cut'n'paste from the link...
