I don't think I could take seeing them every day or two, but once in a while I do find that sort f thing interesting (I guess "every three, four months" fits well in my mental image of once in a while).

FWIW, these stats and many others are also available here, though I suspect the URL is subject to change at some point as part of the general de-.bml-ification of the site.

I have a gut feeling that the apparent spike in 30-year-olds is inaccurate and fear the worst (not implying any management malpractice) about how it might have come about, observing that LJ has a spike that's several times as prevalent and several times as suspicious.

iirc The spike at age 30 is a bug.

If they figured it out, I never heard the reason.

I wonder if it's as simple as 1980 being a popular choice for "I don't want to disclose my age." (In other words, the same reason why there's a spike at 39/40 and at 109.) You might be able to find out by seeing how many of those have registered birthdays of January 1st, although I suspect there are a lot of people who make up a year but enter their actual birthday because they want the friend birthday reminder thing to work.

I'd be happy to see this once a month or so. Or maybe included in news posts from time to time (quarterly?).

Interesting.

I am betting a lot of users (like me) are readers and commenters rather than posters. Is that covered under "active in some way?" Or is there any way to see how many accounts have posted comments and/or check their reading page vs. created an account, posted once, and have it just sitting there?

Oh! I'm surprised about the community exclusion. Though now that I am thinking about it, those would be harder to tally. Very interesting!

I, for one, am glad you mistakenly posted this publicly. So, thanks! :)

Nowadays, it seems as though some folks make a point of signing up for any new service that comes along whether or not they're going to use it, mostly so that they can stake out their desired username. I wonder how many of the "never posted" accounts that accounts for.

To be totally fair, some of that is due to prevent trolls from registering one's username and setting up accounts to impersonate you/make people think that you're out there being evil yourself. I know at least one person who registered her LJ name on DW because she has had a problem with trolls setting up accounts designed to impersonate her. (She's not my friend, so that's all I'm going to say.)

You know, even if they're supposed to be private entries, this was kind of neat to see on my reading page. Maybe make one public once every other week or so? Because I saw it and I grinned big time.

I join the chorus saying that seeing this every once in a while would be kind of neat--I saw this and started grinning like a loon. Way to go, you and everyone else on the team. :D

Once or twice a month would be interesting, so we can all keep tabs of the development easy peasy :)

Even given the reasons (some of which I knew), that's a lot of accounts that are neither active, nor have ever posted an entry. On the other hand, I have one of those; very early on, I wasn't sure which username I wanted, so registered two.
