Thread: Where do you PE?

  1. #1

    Where do you PE?

    I've noticed that traffic on PE (at least where I'm looking) tends to go down on weekends.

    Are people doing PE from work? Or....?

    I do PE on my phone. I'm bored often so I do PE. Unfortunately I have my phone with me all the time.

    Used to do PE from work all the time. Now I work from home, but when I work I'm focused on work only so I don't check PE as often during the day anymore. I'll use the phone app when traveling, otherwise I generally hate using my phone for anything like this - it's too hard to type. I do PE less on weekends because I have other things going on.

    Mostly at work when I have a minute or two to rest. A bit at home on the weekends. Rarely at night at home; too busy with TCM and noir movies.

    I check out PE from work sometimes if I'm not busy and also on the weekends in between other activities. It's pretty random.

    At work when I have a few minutes break, at home on the weekend.

    Working at home during the mid-day, on the road the other four hours. So the PE tab is always open in Chrome on my home PC.

    At home, in the evenings, and on the weekends.

    I tried using my phone, but I just don't like typing on it. Two out of three times I hit the wrong key.

    I will get on it on by lunch and break times at work sometimes. Other than that, at home.

    On phone at home. I rarely take my phone with me when I go out.

    That's an interesting observation, because the number of logins, and page hits, actually goes up on weekends.

    Wherever and whenever. However, I rarely post from my phone. I usually will subscribe to a thread and then reply when I am at a desktop computer.

    Okay - I took time off work for this crucial analysis

    Since August, the average number of posts - and the percentage of the weekly total - has been:

    MON 290 15%
    TUE 293 16%
    WED 281 15%
    THU 285 15%
    FRI 257 14%
    SAT 232 12%
    SUN 235 13%

    In summary - a slight tail-off over weekends.

    Slowest day : Saturday.

    Busiest day : Tuesday.

    Difference between the 2 :
    . 61 posts / day
    . 3% of the weekly total
    . 26% up-tick from Saturday to Tuesday.



    More useless info: Over the lifetime of PEv4 : 836,216 posts spread over 22,443 threads - for an average of 37 posts / thread.

    Could we have the percentage of Yes threads please? If it's under 50%, maybe we could do some promo?

    In the minds of Yes fans, that is probably accurate.
