Thanks for this, and for allowing us to opt out. I appreciate that.
The graphs keep disappearing. They appear fine once, and then I click another tab and come back, and they're blank.
Refreshing the page should pull up the information. It's a bug, and we're working on fixing it right now.
This is an utterly bad fucking idea, especially since you have been collecting stats since the early summer *without telling people*
The My Guests feature was announced back in July
, so that everyone could choose their privacy options
before that happened. That was done specifically so that privacy could be respected.
Do the stats include posts that are made to a community?
Ehh... My Guests seems to have broken for me. I have it enabled, and at first, I could view pages 1 and 3 out of a total of 3, but now I'm only able to see the two paragraphs of text when I access all 3 pages, no usernames and stuff, even though I still have My Guests enabled...
I have a question, and I'm sorry if it's something already addressed in here that I've missed. It's been a long day, and admittedly my brain is mush at this point.
When I look at my journal's stats, I sometimes see that the "all visitors" and "lj users" stats are different numbers. My journal is, at all times, completely friends locked, so I'm curious as to how those two numbers are occasionally different with the "all visitors" number being higher than the "lj users". Does this imply (like I could be mistakenly reading it) that indeed some people are viewing my entries that are not lj users? - if I've got a locked journal (and know that none of the people on my friends list are using any sort of open ID) shouldn't those numbers be the same seeing as how I'm not actively giving anyone else outside of Lj access to those entries?

It could be that some people are surfing to the front page of your journal - even if they visit, it doesn't mean that they can see the entries you've got friendslocked - only that they recorded a hit on the main journal page.
Yay, I've wanted statistics for ages.
I don't see this option when I scroll onto my "journal" navigation bar. Is there another way to get to it?
omg, motherfucking yes to stats! :D
Where do you find the screen to start this process? I see "home post friendspage" or my lj journal scrapbook" in the only two logical places I can come up with to start.
It sounds like you might be using one of the old site schemes, which is why it wasn't added (they're retired now) - but you can also see it by clicking here
Am I missing something, or is there no way to get a total views/visits/whatever per entry? Like, when I view a particular entry, I'm seeing the daily stats, but what about the grand total? Or is LJ going to make me do the math...
Each time I click the tab for the first time, I see the stats correctly, but after I switch back to the previous tab, all of the stats go to 0 and I can no longer view my stats. Now I have no idea what works. The only thing that works now is the individual entries that I have not viewed yet, but once I view them and go to another, they will also go to 0.
Edit: Also refreshing does nothing. It stays at 0

Very minor bug?
When you hover the mouse over a bar next to the tallest one, the stats are hidden behind the permanent one over the tallest bar. Possibly no one will care, just thought I'd mention it.
I've been wanting something like this for years. Thanks for the info, marta
! (And for the chance to use my icon as a double-entendre.)
Those sound pretty awesome! :D
I am a Russian user, and until yesterday I could find the statistics both for my own LJ account and for my community on the Statistics Page. Now, the community statistics are gone... why? where can I find them now?
Also, any chance the stats page could in the future include things like "top ten all-time most-looked-at pages" and "oldest page that got hits in the time period you looked at" and so on? That sort of thing is what makes statistics fun!
This feature seems to work pretty well! Thank you, LJ!!
Any chance that the comments stats could be backdated? After all, you have all of the comments, so adding the numbers in for the whole history of my journal should be doable (if a bit slow to calculate in the first place).
