    Glad to see some changes around here. I'll have to stop in more often.

    Had no problems with previous owners/admins but there was a reason 232 was my primary site in 2003 when I started on the forums.

    Not sure if this was a joke or not.... 232stangs.com. :D

    Anyway, things or looking up... almost 1000 more active users from October to November.

    Are those stats at the beginning of this year for 3.8 or for one of your other sites that got merged?

    If it is 3.8, that is a pretty drastic drop from Jan to now.

    Its for 3.8. I believe @nikko shut off new registrations around that time. The steady decline you see is the result of new members being unable to register. Notice the flat line at the bottom where no new members joined until September of 2013, around the time when I opened them back up and implemented a lot of new spam protections.

    Also, some of those 6000 active users were spam users. So you have to take that into consideration.
