Uthgard has fixed their broken site. Population numbers are working again. Welcome back.

Uthgard reporting shutting down...?

Wed Mar 11 07:32:40 EDT 2020
I've noticed that the Uthgard.net front page is reporting 0 players, and has now for a day or so. That's my data source for population. So either:

  • Uthgard is shutting down.
  • Uthgard has a bug in its population reporting
  • Uthgard has decided to stop reporting population
  • update: Uthgard is not down. Evidently it works fine, but their homepage is broken. They deleted my post asking about it, so they're evidently ashamed/embarrassed of the population. Can't say I blame them. They either need to fix their broken shit (not like they're doing anything else), or if they're just not reporting their population.... /shrug. In any case, I'll leave this up for a couple days to see what's what.

    Data Loss

    Apologies for the data loss. Had some disk issues. Should be fixed now.


    What Is This?

    This is a simple website for tracking the Uthgard Freeshard server population trends.

    Here are a few things you can do!

  • On the hourly and daily charts, drag agross the x-axis to zoom in to a smaller time range

    Let me know if there's other data you'd like to see.

    For old-school chartwatchers (SPLITQUICK!), the old version is still here and being updated.

    For new-school Phoenix server players, there is an equivalent page for Phoenix, here. Check it out!

    NOTE: All times in Eastern.

  • What is this?

    This is the maximum population seen for each day.

    Note that population numbers are "shapshotted" a few times an hour, so may miss particlar "peak numbers" if they are short lived.

    What is this?

    This is a "speedometer" of the population change for the day. Green is GAINING, red is LOSING, for 30 days preceding the day.

    EXAMPLE: A bar shows a slight green color with a value of "0.2". This means that, for 30 days LEADING TO THAT BAR, the population had grown on average 0.2% per day.

    What is this?

    This is the maximum population seen for each hour of the day, for the past week. Note here also that population is only sampled infrequently (though multiple times per hour), so a particular "peak" may be missed.

    The vertical bars represent each new day's start (eg: midnight). All times are US Eastern Time Zone.

    What is this?

    This is the average population per hour of day, for the last 30 days.

    This is to gauge when the server is typically busy or light.
