So one interesting thing to note about this is that 378 logged in users, and our stats show we get a significant number of members who:
A. Have registered with the Community, but aren’t particularly interested in posting themselves, so they now often just view the Community without feeling the need to log in. (So their visit isn’t officially recorded in the Discourse stats)
B. Aren’t interested in registering here for whatever reason, but do enjoy reading posts, so again their visit isn’t recorded but they still get good use out of the Community.
So the real numbers are quite a bit higher!
Believe me, I am!! It’s not so much about increased spend as it is about increased value of membership - taking part here seems to achieve our goal of making members feel a bigger part of their Wine Society, and helps you all have a bigger voice when it comes to giving feedback on the way we do things, and getting reliable advice and recommendations from each other. Seeing this increased level of participation and benefits from membership is an utter joy for me!
