[Quote from: "Taotaomonas"]Pint in my village local is £3.90 so maybe more than a couple. 3/4 of a pint in Melbourne can set you back $10 which is £6.00 so not far off

you should open your own micro-brewery



Not enough dwarfs

true - but with 7 dwarfs you get sleeping beauty

Made me chuckle too Tam. I think Tao drinks in more upmarket places than we do. Either that or when he's out with his mates, they have a kitty and he has to put in twice as much as everybody else.

Haven't had a pint of beer from a pub for several years, but can recall the days after work on a Friday night paying only 28p per pint.

Does this mean the price has altered since those bygone days?

Those games of chess I played then in the snug are a bit blurry now.

So, various versions of "the question" might be (1) how many paid up members are there (2) how many active guests are there that can be promoted to paid up (3) how many different players have made a move in the last n days (5?)? Are players of certain rating ranges more likely to be paid up members - what features would attract the less populated ranges that they are not seeing or are unaware of? (5) are there members who don't play but use the site for research or other purposes - how do we find out?....and on and on...




And likely a lot more.......
All for less a year than you can buy a couple of pints of beer for these day.

I think it would always have to be just an estimate, because of the difficulty of knowing when a low-activity member has actually left; knowing whether someone has created a second identity for some reason; whatever. Plus, the total number is not really the important factor; the level of activity and number of games and the time and thought given to moves are all going to have a bigger effect on the player experience.

It's sufficient, as you say, to know that there are plenty enough to provide continual variety!

The appeal to me is the ease of playing a fresh game when and as required by differing opponents providing greater opportunities than other modes of game styles e.g. postal etc.

However anyone with even the slightest business acumen would realise the numbers being banded about seem highly speculative and amusing when not based on stock control changes. For example seasonal changes which fluctuate and skew the calculations.

Given up the number of times I have read on these forums opponents stating that they play more at one juncture of time than at others. To me it's all relative and pure guesswork.
