Statistics Marking Five Years

Just like the previous such post, this one will also cover only six months, as it marks five years since I launched this site, on September 21, 2010. As a result, I did attempt to be even more thorough than normal, offering more detailed statistics, the reason for that being that I plan to start over after this, the next such posts no longer having a column covering the entire period since launching the site, but the entire period after the one covered in this one. After all, five years is a long time on-line and much has changed, so the mix of new and old information causes such a column to appear quite strange already.
As such, for the last time, the first column in the table below will cover the entire period between September 21, 2010 and September 20, 2015. The middle column will cover the period between March 21, 2015 and September 20, 2015, while the third is the usual one I add at the end, covering the last month, so starting on August 21 and ending on the same day as all the rest. Once again, not that it should matter or interest anyone in any way, especially considering the small number of visits, but I’m adding all of this here for reference, just in case.

[1] For obvious reasons, spam sources or those that reveal the use of spyware or adware toolbars or other applications aren’t listed, even if a few would exceed the threshold.
[2] After switching to the new Analytics code, I ended up with a number of entries listing my own site as source, which are quite clearly direct hits from returning visitors, the code reading the cookies set by the previous version in a way that causes this glitch. As a result, all such entries were added to the number of direct visits.
[3] The number of actual sources with less than 0.25% each is actually smaller than listed in the first column, as I only deducted those I had to add together for those that exceeded the threshold and there are certainly others below it which should be merged as well. It is correct in the second column, however.
[4] Since the links to images in the fantasy art gallery are numbers that point to titles in an alphabetical list and, while very rarely and not recently, I did update that a few times, the statistics for these pages can’t be accurate in the first column. Also, using the page title option would be of no use as the titles are set through JavaScript and they’re often not picked up correctly, or at least were not picked up correctly until some time ago, as recently it seems better. As such, what’s listed is what the link points to now, with the numbers that show up for it, as there’s no way to sort this issue out.
[5] Due to some odd entries, likely from crawlers, the actual number of different pages is in fact lower, as I only removed the obvious duplicates in the first column. It is correct in the other columns, however.
[6] Threshold increased as the number of items would have been far too high otherwise.
[7] Also includes entries listed as iPhone, iPad and iPod. I’m not sure how right this is, but I’ll go with it.

Once again, this took a long time, as I started Tuesday evening, then after doing other things on Wednesday I worked on it through most of Thursday and eventually finished it today. Would have finished yesterday, but for some reason everything after the cursor vanished as I was going back to change some notes and after quickly closing the tab before the next autosave and then getting back I found that the notes, which were at the end, had been saved as I had written them that day, but the table itself had somehow reverted to how it was when I stopped working Tuesday evening, losing me a good two and a half hours of work on the hardest parts, namely landing and viewed pages. But, after about half an hour spent cursing and thinking I’ll just give up, I got my head down again and spent another two hours getting back to where I was before the problem. Still have absolutely no clue how could it save the text below it, but not the changes to the table itself.

Either way, I was once again particularly thorough. It is still possible that mistakes slipped through, but these statistics should be at least as accurate as the best so far, if not even better.
The records are unchanged, namely 169 visitors and 180 visits, set on the old site by that large spike on August 16, 2009, and 333 pageviews, set on March 3, 2013.
I’m also adding graphs this time, first showing the visitors, visits and pageviews for the last year, and then also visitors, visits and pageviews for the entire five-year period.
