    Days and hours are pretty much as I would think they would be. I am suprised at the number of countries, and also at the dominance of Firefox. I have it installed on my Mac but haven't used it much. Might start using it a bit more.

    Intereting. Thanks Kym

    What I found interesting was that nearly 24% of the contacts are with Macs, but that 17% are with Safari, so some of them must be using one of the other browsers.

    Thanks for that Kym as mentioned its very interesting though it does not surprise me about FF I have been using it for about 7 years on my desktops.
    I installed Win 7 on my Macbook Pro so I could use my software and I have it on there too,

    Chrome and Firefox most likely. The high % of MACS is no surprise considering the theme of AP

    Very interesting indeed! And interesting that Chrome is so close to IE - will obviously outstrip it in the next year! Funnily, I've started used Chrome at work because I can't upgrade from IE7 and it's such a dog, and chrome works better than FF at work! However it doesn't work for everything, so depending on what I want to do, I switch between IE, FF and Chrome! Why can't one browser just do it all?

    I'm curious though what exactly "bandwith" means on some of the stats? For example, on the second screen shot, the US and China both have proportionately more "bandwidth" allocations than other countries.

    bandwidth is the amount of data uploaded and downloaded from the site. Same as you may have an ADSL connection with 200GB monthly limit, what you do on the net uses up that 200GB. That is your bandwidth usage. For AP it is the amount of data uploaded and downloaded, for the entire site.

    Pity that it is shown in both GB and MB. Why not all in GB and decimals of GB?

    Bandwidth is pure web traffic, bi-directional.

    I'm not sure about the high rate of Chinese traffic, we have blocked some Chinese spiders (web crawlers).
    I'll need to did deeper and block some more I think

    Thanks for posting this stuff. Very interesting indeed, especially the Chinese factor. The PC vs Mac thing is a bit like the Canon vs Nikon thing!

    Just on a vaguely related matter ... our club is looking to conduct more of its activities via an interface like yours, and is looking at on-line mechanisms. This is Joomla isn't it? How much knowledge does one have to have to set up a photo club using this software - is it purely a programmer's realm or could any reasonably computer aware person have a decent crack at it? (without meaning to suggest that this site was easy). We need to bring our club further into the 21st century.

    The US and China figures are interesting. Personally, if they are chewing up bandwidth by using web crawlers etc., then the country should be banned full stop. Apologies to residents of said countries that want to maintain an international presence However, bandwidth costs money and I'm sure we'd all want that money spent on us, not countries that can afford to pay for their own

    Something bizarre happened there, pay no mind, cheers Deb

    I'm hoping you partitioned your HD to run Windows in one partition and Mac OSX in the other? cheers Deb

    From what I can tell they come under the operating system ie (iOS or Android). In the Operating System screen, I think the 4th one down with the ? is including all the Android ones, along with other OS that the site software cannot work out exactly what they are.

    I'm a bit puzzled with the band width usage. If the USA and China use so much bandwidth why is it that we don't see masses of photos taken by photographers from these countries submitted? Or have I got it all wrong and am missing something.
    EOS 60D and a couple of lenses.

    search engine bots, spammers and hackers. If I look at where most of the hack attempts come from it is Russia, China, USA. Same with spam attempts (though Pakistan is catching up as a good place to be a spammer). Google bots scan the site continuously, as do yahoo and other search engines (incl chinese ones). We block quite a few hack attempts every hour.

    we block them temporarily to start with and then permanently if they persist. The 'failures' noted in the above, is the number of times they have tried to access the site back-end, but they all take up bandwidth usage and report in the overall site figures.

    Also people find the site using Google/ Bing etc and then come have a look, usually they are searching for something specific and we get a hit, so they click to see if they can find what they want, that all counts. Basically any computer, anywhere in the world, that looks at the site, gets included in the stats.
