discuss.as3lang.org has been up for 1 week
it’s short but we still can make a little report
and talk about statistics and stuff
First google analytics
so numbers are small off course it’s been only 1 week and well I did not promote it that well
but few interesting points
- the bounce rate is quite low at 2.73%
which means people do not just come and leave right away without reading a little
- people stay on average about 3 minutes reading
and/or read at least 4 pages (per session)
- people come back at least bout 50% of them
now about discourse stats
If you see only zero for today it is because I do that in the first minutes of the day so not stats yet
we grew up to about 100 users in a week, not bad
we’re good on emails, so far we can send max 500 per day, but we are bellow so all good for now (I’m working on changing that to increase the limits per day)
hundreds of likes and no flags, that means people like the content and we have no spam so far
but all these are about registered users, let’s see things a bit wider
so for about 10000 requests 30% come from registered users and we have a massive 70% of anonymous people (and those are not web crawlers but actual visitors)
I’m not sure what to say about that, maybe some people are shy or just curious and did not feel the need to register
only thing we can extrapolate from the data is that if 100 users were active
at least 200 other were anonymous and just read without interacting
now about how we reach over the world
bit of warning, my sessions probably skew the results and that’s why you see a lot of activity from France
but it’s good to know that this forum is not only Europeans nor only Americans, it’s a bit everywhere: Russia, India, China, Australia etc.
bonjour tout le monde
What have been done, what’s the plan next
as3lang created a fork
and welcomed 2 new members to the team
No code commit yet, but hey the project is new give us time.
Mainly a Github wiki about ActionScript 3.0 the language
with the first 9 chapters of the ActionScript 3 Language Specification published.
The goal with this project is to finish the whole spec, then copy it, and make it our own community edited spec where people can contribute comments, code examples etc.
Long time ago I started the github project
with the goal to build a community web site about AS3 with AS3
- for the people
- for the community
- for the language
The general idea was to have a lang (dot) org web site to present the ActionScript 3 language, like many other web sites are doing with their respective programming language.
But at the time, probably biased by Redtamarin, I mainly focused on producing a serie of releases to show developers how they could use Redtamarin or AS3 server-side to build a web site, and it kind of ended as a bunch tutorials instead of an actual web site.
I need to refocus and simply produce a web site (still made with AS3) instead of producing tutorials.
That’s about it, but comments and ideas welcome on what we as a community should have on such web site.
Basically a package manager for ActionScript 3.0
This project will happen on 2 fronts
will contain the AS3 REST API source code
that we will host on the very same server where we host this forum
will contain the AS3 source code for the command-line tool
I’m working on it in my corner, nothing yet to use, be patient.
I identified a couple of pain points in the community to use specific type of services, and while not open source I will probably dabble in offering limited trials for such services.
- web media content
- conversion tools
- real-time chat
Simply put, I need those so I build those for myself, I may give access to some of those for people interested to test them, but sadly I can not, as a small entity, provide all my work for free in the open, I hope that clarify things.
Voila, thanks for reading this far
this was report 000 for 1 week of activity
next reports will be posted at the very end of each month
