Since 2006 I have published a statistic about Radiomuseum.org, but only in German:
Numbers can probably be compared and names, so at least I can introduce here the links:
2006 with a glance back, 2007 (ants work), 2008, 2009 (what are we? What have we built up? Where to get help? Was it worth while?), 2010 and 2011. For the 10th year of operation in this form I thought it is time to have it translated for 2012 and from then on ...
Radiomuseum.org is part of the foundation "Stiftung Radiomuseum Luzern".

Thanks to John Kusching, USA for his translation and adaption, I can present the 2013 statistics to you now in English.


Radiomuseum.org: Summary for 2013 (Statistics)

Before you read any further, the most important thing:
Behind these figures are members who voluntarily and generously provide data and pictures or administer and manage data and pictures that have been submitted.
As someone from USA wrote to me:"I expect to be able to get information about a model without having to search all over the Internet for it.”
Yes, that is how RMorg is set up.  Discerning users recognize from the outset that here, information and material for research, is organized in a completely different way from the hundreds of other radio websites.

In the near future RMorg will also offer schematics in exchange for a small fee.  
The payment is really not for the schematic itself, as such, but will be used to help defray the costs of providing the schematic using the website.  This is similar to the purchase of a printed book containing schematics, where one pays for the preparation of the data in a specific format.  In the case of a book, the payment defrays the printing cost.  In the case of RMorg, the payment defrays the cost of hosting the website and various other costs associated with insuring that the RMorg website is on-line and can handle the large amount of daily traffic.

I continue to be astonished that there are still people who need to be forcefully reminded that:
It is not my website and I derive no monetary gain from it. The website is owned by the not-for-profit foundation "Stiftung Radiomuseum Luzern".  At best it is like a child that I put so much intensive effort into supporting, which includes working well over 70 hours per week and also putting money into the foundation since it is still losing money due to a 100% financed full time programmer.

In each category of the statistics there is a list of the top 20 most active members.
BUT I do not diminish the work of the less active members and would like to thank everyone for their participation in this enterprise, which helps all collectors and not just me.  I am a mere servant in this matter.  Every one of the 12,514 members can click on “data change” under “Questions and uploads” on any model page and see who has contributed to the model in question and can also suggest improvements.

Once data has been uploaded, the work of the many administrators begins. 
We appreciate the voluntary work that these individuals provide since they assist in improving the quality of the data in the RMorg database. 
Members can contact administrators and moderators directly by looking under “Organization”, where there is contact information for the 39 model administrators and 23 CMS administrators.  We encourage members to contact us to suggest improvements to the language and/or the text. There are 9 different categories of administrators. 
Members can also find the contact information for the language administrators, who can help in one of the languages indicated by the national flags – as well as the various picture administrators.  
Without this level of control, the data would never have the quality which RMorg provides
Even though 100% perfection will never be obtainable, improvements are made every day and the quality of the data on the RMorg website is continuously improving. 

For you as a guest, the opportunity to contribute to this improvement is in your hands via the Contact link at the bottom of every page.


The most active contributors based on the 2013 figures.

In 2013, a total of 17'300 new models were added (19,907 in 2012, 19'960 in 2011)
so that at the end of 2013 there were 239'629 model pages available on the website (222,284 in 2012, 202'377 in 2011).   The latest Model status divided by country can be found with this link

Just as important are the 122'805 Model Updates and enhancements (127,182 in 2012, 116'408 in 2011) for the 30'103 Models from 2013 (32,670 in 2012, 36'189 in 2011), to which the following top 20 members have contributed the most:

Each of these suggestions or proposals must be checked by 2 separate administrators and found to be correct.  Often correspondence must be exchanged in order to check and clarify the data. However, it is clear that a model administrator cannot always know as much about a model as the proposer who has the item in front of him, so administrators can only really fully check the salient points.  Unfortunately, the quality of the proposals vary widely.
627 members have proposed model changes in 2013 (629 in 2012, 599 in 2011, 517 in 2010).

Hinrich Grensemann, Karlheinz Gützlaff and Albert Weiss had the great task of checking and accepting the numerous images before they could appear on the site.
In 2013,1501 members have uploaded at least one model image (1481 in 2012, 1269 in 2011, 1079 in 2010) and at the end of 2013 we feature a total of 629'241 Model images (520,682 at the end of 2012, 378'888 at the end of 2011)for 155'736 models (137,495 models at the end of 2012, 117'763 models at the end of 2011).


Schematic diagrams are an essential part of our appeal. As of the end of 2013 we feature a total of 115'062 Models that show at least one circuit diagram (109,383 in 2012, 102'279 in 2011, 93'036 in 2010)  with a total of total 595'189 diagrams altogether (528,565 in 2012, 353'384 in 2011).

In 2013 a total of 539 members have participated in uploading schematics (589 in 2012, 522 in 2011, 451 in 2010), of them 414 uploaded more than one schematic (447 in 2012, 381 in 2011, 345 in 2010). In total, 66,624 diagrams were uploaded in 2013 (175, 181 in 2012, 102'792 in 2011). 
We have a very significant number of additional schematics and documents that need to be scanned and uploaded, but we more help in getting this material into the website.  Can anyone help us with this task?

Another attractive feature is the 168'225 pricing data paid by collectors (145,737 in 2012, 127'904 in 2011, 100,511 in 2010) that are available for 43'037 models in 2013 (40,480 in 2012, 37'347 models in 2011).

Peter  Steffen, CH, has examined and approved the numerous tube images. Most of the tube admins are represented here too as only they can create or alter tube entries. As a member, however, you can create variants or upload images. 

FORUM

With regard to the statistical summary of the Forum, it would be misleading to just go by the number of posts. These vary greatly in quality and time involved in creating entries. We can do something by way of the star rating (awarded by members) and reviews (given by guests). We now count 586 threads with the following indicated rating (7 or more ratings of 3 or more stars, 2.1% of 27936 threads) and 4317 threads that have between 1-6 ratings, which we do not see.

"Q" 
Dear Ernest!
 
It would be interesting in the statistical analysis comparing a new 2014 year.
Namely, according to the "Q" is the name of the first 20 members.
This would encourage the further successful work.

Hi Sandor,
here is the Statistik über Radiomuseum.org Jahr 2014

It is good to upload many schemas and pictures.
It is better to upload a good quality!
It is bad to upload low quality when a high quality is possible by doing some work.
It is not acceptable to load the same picture twice.
Never load the same picture to an new accepted model, if you loaded it at creating the model. It is a lot work for Admins to delete all of your duplicates. If you don't remember that you uploaded it, wait a day or 2. The pictures must be accepted by Admin.

We upload to help other collectors, not to get a high score.
We want quality! It is not sports.

Regards,
Heribert
