WELCOME TO THE 2012 ANNUAL TRAFFIC REPORT
Hi, everyone. This is Doug with the Annual Traffic Report for 2012 . Below the summary data for this year. I have included the corresponding data for last year, if it is available.
(This report updated with current information: December 2017)

We have been away from UGA for 3/4 of this year and it seems to have made a difference. It has mostly been positive.

The number of subscribers is down, but it is mostly due to the losses we made during the move.

The average posts per day is up. Apparently making it easier to post has helped. This is shown by an increase in the number of contributors.

The numbers on the highest of the Top 25 doesn't agree with the number of days in the year. This is because a couple days had no posts. These days are not counted. Turned out to be an overall good year. Keep it up everyone!

2) The one-time subscriber fee is now $14.95 for one email address or $19.95 for two email addresses.

3) After payment through PayPal, you will be directed back to the Humor List website. Because PayPal and SimpleLists are not directly connected, there is a second step that must be completed. Please continue by adding your subscription information to the SimpleLists form.

4) One of the factors in deciding to allow SimpleLists to become our new mailing list service was their strict anti-spamming policy. After completing the SimpleLists form, you will be sent a "Request to join mailing list thehumorlist@simplelists.com" email with a confirmation link. Be sure to confirm your email address. If a subscriber has not "confirmed" their email address - SimpleLists will not allow us to include their email address for daily mailings.

DOUG'S TRADITIONAL HUMOR CONTRIBUTION
And finally, the one feature which has been featured in all Traffic Reports, the contribution of Humor. Since, I am not a real regular contributor, I will not be providing new Humor. Instead, I will provide a joke from the archives. It will be at least 14 months old, so most of you won't remember it. This is my contribution of Humor from the Archives:

This joke is joke #10 in the Digest For 6/29/1998
http://archive.thehumorlist.us/Site1/Digests/H0604090.php#Joke12
From: SueS7
Subject: Seinfeld on Retirement

"My parents live in Florida now. They moved there last year. They didn't want to move to Florida, but, they're in their seventies and that's the law. You know how it works, they got the leisure police. They pull up in front of the old people's house with a golf cart and jump out. 'Let's go, Pop. White belt, white pants, white shoes, get in the back. Drop the snow shovel right there. Drop it!'"
