So, we know that when LJ is on the fritz it means a spike in DW activity until LJ smooths out and most people go back. You can see some pretty serious spikes on the newbyday stat:

newbyday 2011-04-02 402
newbyday 2011-04-03 243
newbyday 2011-04-04 2506
newbyday 2011-04-05 3658
newbyday 2011-04-06 16226
newbyday 2011-04-07 22136
newbyday 2011-04-08 10839
newbyday 2011-04-09 9735
newbyday 2011-04-10 4214
newbyday 2011-04-11 468
newbyday 2011-04-12 6897
newbyday 2011-04-13 8317

Of course, newbyday includes ALL accounts, including OpenID accounts that are created during imports through comments or access giving. That's why 4/11 is so low compared to the others--the importer had been shut down.

So in order to gauge activity spikes, it's easier to look at other metrics like active/posting, which would include people coming back to fallow accounts they haven't touched in a month as well as new accounts that have been signing in and posting content. Here's the numbers comparing 3/31/2011 to 4/13/2011 (just after 12AM two weeks apart to the day, so it's a better comparison than different days, since activity varies through the week):

sadly a lot of these are just back up accounts. I was hoping for more activity here fandom wise in the comms.

For me, getting big enough without running out of time is often a matter of being able to prioritize the big things and able to ignore all the shiny small objects. Also, playing multiple times to get a good mental map. Finally, watching or reading a walkthrough can help in the "oh, so *that's* what it's supposed to look like at this-or-that point in time." sense.

It's actually quite easy to synthesise an approximation of newbyday figures that are actual users as opposed to imports; you just need to sum all the accounts which have any recorded value for the gender field, including "Rather not say". This also means you get to include OpenID accounts which are actually being used. :)
