I recall you saying 20-30? @Nnesha

  • Compassionate
I know we reached 20,000,000 unique users awhile ago. So, I guess we should take it and divide it by the number of days, which gives me 10951; then take that and divide it by 365; which is about 30 users a day.

How long ago did we reach 20 million? @Compassionate

20-30% users have fake accounts. They are operating those fake accounts using different IP. Every since OS started using decentralize approach (using many servers) they can't delete those fake accounts.

  • e.mccormick
annas, the farm has nothing to do with why they do not delete accounts. The SmartScore and many other things are comparitive, so they use inofmration on all users. Also, the user name is a master key for the data that gets used in all these other things. This means that deleting a user is not a low resource task.

huh.. @Compassionate "I know we reached 20,000,000 unique users awhile ago. So, I guess we should take it and divide it by the number of days, which gives me 10951; then take that and divide it by 365; which is about 30 users a day." you sure about your math here?
anonymous
  • anonymous
20,000,000 / the number of days = 10951 this is the number of users per day why do u divide it by 365 further? wtf
anonymous
  • anonymous
based on your number of days OS exists, the correct answer to asker's question is 10951

@AeroSmith , you need to average it.
anonymous

@Compassionate 10951 is the average how did you get chosen for ambassador when u can't perform basic elementary school math
Compassionate
  • Compassionate
It's because the math is faulty. That would imply a new account is made every seven seconds, for five years. You are not averaging certain things between, like account for fake accounts, duplicates an so on. It would be absurd to assume the moment OpenStudy was created, every 7 seconds, someone new was joining. Also, be kind with your language, okay? Be constructive.
anonymous
  • anonymous
lmao, this is the most ridiculously stupid argument i've ever heard You are claiming OS has a growth rate of 30 users/day, to achieve 20M users it would take 666k days, which is 1826 years. Simple math, 20M/30/365 = 1826
anonymous
  • anonymous
but what u did was u messed up the logic, and divided 1826 by 365 = 5, which is the 5 years you used for presuming OS existed for 5 years

I'm going to show you why your math is wrong, @AeroSmith . If you take Facebook, it's been around since 2003; and has 550,000,000 users. Now, if you take that and divide it by the 9 years, you get 152,106. Now, how many seconds are in a day? 86,400. So, it would be impossible for this to even happen unless two accounts were made every second for 9 years straight, which is absurd. When you look at OpenStudy's statistics, which I have pulled up, 10,000 a day does not make sense.
Compassionate
  • Compassionate
@AeroSmith , do you know what unique users are?

I agreed with @Compassionate when he started with the math in the first reply.. I understood that it was being averaged.

You need to understand 20,000,000 unique users does not imply what you think it does.
anonymous
  • anonymous
My only concern is that since OS reached 20,000,000 users last year, wouldn't the average number be a bit higher since OS is a growing community?
EclipsedStar
  • EclipsedStar
I think you should also take into account the month and time of the year that users usually sign up. During the summer there isn't as much activity due to the summer break. During finals I do see more users signing up than usual. A few weeks back I saw more than a dozen new users checking out the site in an hour. There are times where there are just more newer users popping up and the next week the site goes really quiet. :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Fair point… but then again I'm just looking at the average (including any outliers) that would give me a general idea of how many active users join OS daily.
EclipsedStar

Where Compassionate's numbers come from: http://blog.openstudy.com/2014/09/29/2-million-learners-looking-for-a-little-help/ "Do numbers tell a story? 2 Million, that is the number of learners who came to OpenStudy in September looking for help. 1,590,443 questions asked. 22,049,458 OpenStudiers we have helped over the last 3 years. What stories do these numbers tell?"

Usually i let kids troll on post, but it becomes unbearable when people like @Compassionate spread mind-blowing nonsense, and keeps coming up with more nonsense to cover their fault after being pointed out their error. What's more shocking is the audience seem to be a bunch of kids helping to defend their friends' faces, rather than taking a minimum 2 seconds to examine how invalid their mathematical equations are to the problem in question. OS has turned from a bunch of college geeks arguing about fourier series convergence and solving lagrange derivation into mass-upvoting arguments that contains stuffs like “9 years have passed from 2003 until now”. And yea, by an ambassador. RIP the time when mathematical truth and deep-thought analysis was encouraged, when truth was the only thing that mattered.

Ok, so OpenStudy has around 20,000,000 unique users since it began. OpenStudy launched in 2009, making that about 6 years ago. We need to find out about how many unique users joined in a year. 20,000,000/6 which is around 3,333,333 unique users a year. We know that there is 365 days in a year, do divide 3,333,333 by 365 Now we end up with around 9,132 users joining a DAY. That is a lot. (I also did this math many different ways and ended up with the same answer..) That is my math. I feel like I am wrong due to getting that high #, and my logic, but that is what I got We also know there is 2190 days in 6 years, so divide 20 million by 2190, and you get close to 9,132
sammixboo
  • sammixboo
I don't think the math to this is as basic as we think. (idk?) From what my logical side is saying that this is no way. Mathematics (from what is shown) says otherwise. But, let's try 2,000,000 now...... 2,000,000/6 = 913 That seems more like a reasonable answer. I thought there was 2 million uniques, not 20 mil

:) 20 million users have been HELPED, but there is around 2 million unique users. You have to think, around 1,000 users are on in the middle of the day. There is just around 100-150 that is a 50 SS - 100 SS. Rest is below (usually users who have joined that day)

@Aureyliant - It's hard to determine such numbers, this is why it's best to question such stuff to the admins of OS – they know it best! You may consult @Preetha regarding this. @AeroSmith - There's no reason to start arguing with other members of the OS community. We're all inclined to making mistakes and no one should be punished for it. Reconsider your behaviour. Compassionate's response had logic behind it, it may or may not be accurate but that doesn't mean you use profanity and go completely against it – It's not acceptable at all costs on here. If you want to pick on others then I suggest you go do it somewhere else, but OS. Also, please put a shirt on and/or change your profile pic to something more appropriate for the well-being of others. I suggest you reread the OS code-of-conduct thoroughly, and don't let it go in one ear and out the other. Thank you! http://openstudy.com/code-of-conduct

I think the amount of users joining per day rises exponentially (or at least something similar), and not linear like the calculations in this post suggest. There is no way to calculate or determine it as you don't know at what point in the timeline OS became more popular so it wouldn't be a correct curve. Only way to find out is by looking at the site statistics. Like my colleague above said, @preetha will know for sure.
