When the site was having Captcha issues, out of curiosity I took a look at the number of new members the site was getting before and after things got fixed. Shortly after, and for some time after, MV was registering about 100 new members every ten days.
I got curious again today and took a look. In the "off-season" it shows we have gotten about 100 new members over the past 30 days.
Amazing what weather will do to things when most of your members live above the equator.
