12/1/2021: OK folks, the new forum software is up and running

Update 7/3/2022: No issues to report.

Registering is open to the public (*) and free from any cost or obligation. We have had to make the spambot registration question a bit complex because of fake applications. Please read ALL the question instructions carefully. If you have problems registering, please email me at this link: jim@eaglesinternational.net. If you email me, it would be best if you send a screen capture of your registration screen so that I can troubleshoot it correctly.

Reminder: "quick links" menu offers you the best navigation of this forum -- you need to be registered and logged in to see that menu (details in link below).

I have have created a thread that discusses the new platform: https://eagles-international.net/forums ... fa10d60ea5 Please report any issues in this thread.


(*) spambots will be deleted -- only legitimate public applications will be processed.

Thanks Jim for keeping it alive.  I try to contribute when I think I have something worthwhile.  I check the site often for new posts.  Of course I wish there were more new posts, but it even seems slow over at BCM, slower than in the past.  Too many knowledgeable people have passed on or not active anymore.

Hi All.  Jim the geek here.

As I mentioned before I set up a Google Analytics account for the forum.  I used the free option which gives you less data, but still has a ton of stuff that I do not fully understand.  That said, I thought I would post a screen capture for what I think is about a three week period.

As I say, I am still trying to make sense of the data, but I thought it might be interesting to see what countries hit our forum - surprisingly none from Russia.  It also seems that USA hits spend a decent amount of time on the forum.

Analytics also gives a ton more data.  One of the interesting pieces of information is the ratio of hits by browser.  Chrome was used 5 times more often than Firefox and Safari was about half as many as Chrome (lots of Apple use - iPhone?).

Tin hat off

That's good news that the Russians have not invaded, they must be busy with other kinds of mischief. The majority of the visitors are from the US, but it would be good if there were more chapter members signing in. Part of that problem is the fact that you do not have to sign in to view messages, only if you want to post a message. Bus Grease Monkey requires membership to access, maybe that would be an approach to consider.
