LOL, give me an intruiging puzzle that involves figures and I’ll keep going with it until I work out what’s going on!

Those should also count - I’ve definitely been away on holiday logging in through my phone at some time during the year (OK @Jim7, several times…:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::sunglasses:) and they all counted towards the final tally.

The holiday was fantastic - got back yesterday evening! I’ve been going through the 2000-odd photos, will be posting some of them into the relevant categories once I’ve sorted them all out. I know that’s a lot of pics, but what I didn’t know until I got there was that it was Carnival season, with a very colourful 2.5 hour parade with LOTS of feathers!

Those could have been on Terrib2,

Glad you have the perseverance to figure it out!

OMgoodness lots of photos to go through…post some when you can!!
I just finished my Christmas ones!! Carnival? Were you in Rio? My son just got back from there!

I was thinking of you yesterday when they posted the Northern Lights on the news…about 60 km north of me. They popped up and they were “bright” and danced for quite some time!

Late this afternoon I ran up to the village. While in a store the young woman ahead of me was telling the store owner she just got back from Trinidad. We have a friend whose husband is from Trinidad. Small world…

That would probably explain it! Might be worth a word with @Mel_Nod, she may be able to shift them across on the system for you…

I’ve not really finished processing the October aurora pics yet, nor the Christmas ones… in total, I’ve got around 44000 pics in the catalogue at the moment, around 7K of those taken since October last year.:scream:

No, not Rio! I was in Madeira… managed to get tickets for some grandstand seats along the parade route, which I was glad of after 2+ hours!

Did you see them? :crossed_fingers::pray:

Unfortunately only on the news…I am going out tomorrow night though and hope to catch a glimpse and maybe a photo or two.

That is a lot of photos…but I understand…I can accumulate many in a short period of time! I have cleared my computer and put everything in folders and processed as many as I am going to for now.
But one little side trip and there are many more waiting for me :roll_eyes:…an ongoing issue for photographers!!! :smile::smiley:

I should clarify, the earliest of those date back to around 2004 when I got my first digital camera!
I have just purchased a very well known photo-editing program (I won’t name it just in case it goes against the forum ToS) so that I can properly catalogue them and ultimately delete a lot of them!

I started to keep track of (sort of) the first several names on the Users list using the the past year stats. Here’s what I’ve been shown for the month of March… so far. Sorry about the added periods and spaces, but Discourse removes “extra” spaces and periods so this was the only way to get some resemblance of keeping everything in columns.

So does that mean we are “stuck”? I have been on Tomnod everyday. Is yours moving again? My stats say:

52%20PM

On the 21st March from 2:35 PM to 7:30 PM, my number increased 1 day (visited). Even though I was here every day since, the number stayed the same right up until today, only increasing but one more.
The only other person I notice has gone up in numbers is @Thistle. Everyone else has remained the same… or gone down.

That’s not good!!! I hope this is a not a “countdown” to the end :frowning_face:

I hope it moves those 3 numbers so I can finish the year!
I wonder why there is such a different between that number and my stats number on my page.

I don’t think it registers all visits if using Incognito Chrome.

When I look at the stats on my page it shows me the number of days I’ve visited since I joined… 869 or 889… I forget (even though I just looked at it. :shushing_face:). These other numbers are from the “Users” in the menu button at the top right.

In cases where certain people login under multiple personalities… er… accounts, then those visits do not count to their “main” account stats.

I almost seem to remember reading that a “visit” is where one logs in, has read (and posted/replied) in 8 different topics. I don’t know… I’m going to have to go back and reread everything… carefully this time.

Edit: It was bugging me so I had to recheck. I have 890 days on the forum since I joined.

If you use that, then you are not logged in? And your results are not credited to you?

This is from my usual account. I believe we asked earlier about Incognito (Emeraldeyes?) and it is counted. Otherwise I wouldn’t have very many days. I use it so that I don’t have to clear history all the time. I still log out and back into Tomnod and of course I post on the Forum and do work on the campaign.

Terri, don’t forget though that the figure you’re looking at there is the TOTAL number of days that you’ve visited Tomnod forum since you signed up, not the consecutive days… you mentioned a few days where you may have logged in under an alternative username from your phone…
My status summary says “1.3k days visited” - that’s the total number of days since I signed up to the forum! Within the last year, Jim’s figures are about right (352 for me), as I missed a few days last year while I was out aurora-chasing. That’s the figure to watch for the Devotee badge…

You are right Helen…you did figure that out earlier. So if it starts to move to count the days I have been consecutive since it hit 362…because I have been on here each of those dates shown…then I will eventually get to the 365 :grin:…maybe…
