CarcC Stats Quiz
« on: January 13, 2016, 03:33:00 AM »
In between games of Carcassonne I'm a full-time Database Administrator (SQL Server) which makes me a bit of a data geek. Consequently, I enjoy checking Carcassonne Central's stats every now and again, and like to share some of my occasional observations. This seems like a great excuse for a quiz! So, without further ado...

Q: There was one of these in 2013 (which doesn't count), three in 2014 and two in 2015. Yet despite their scarcity we've already had one this year!

What are "they"? (a merit for the first correct answer or anything suitably close to it - there will be clues if necessary)

Ha ha. Good answer, and possibly even a correct one, but not what I had in mind.

For one thing, I think there were probably a lot more than just 1, 3 and 2 in 2013/14/15 respectively.

No new Admin members added this year! (that I'm aware of anyway)

Another close one. Except that we had two tournaments in 2014 and four five in 2015. And we haven't had one in 2016 yet either (unless you all did secretly without me, in which case... :()

Not yet. But the battle is raging on between kettlefish and I to be the first to reach 4000! 8)

A day with 100+ posts?

Spot on! Very impressive jungleboy! :) :(y)

Yeah, it was the day I created the "Post here if you think Dan is awesome" topic... 8)

Actually I think it's more to do with the fact that this was when the new forum went live and a lot of stuff was transferred over from the old forums.

Another quiz question:

Which long-standing forum record got broken today, and by how much was it improved?

Most online. I think it used to be 72.  So 10?
