Well, top eleven really. I was trawling through the site statistics here at the Hole this morning after spending some time looking a different technical things about the software I’m using. The Hole is getting slower (as indeed is Thomo) so I am thinking of trying a new theme and cutting back on some of the widgets here to speed up the loading of the pages from the Hole.
I was also looking at the which posts here had received the most visitors. Some I had guessed would be popular (like the Korean Soldiers in the WW2 German Army) and others were unexpected (Cancon 2009 for example).
I present the list here:
|Article||Number of hits||Comment|
|Korean Soldiers in WW2 German Army||21,159||As expected|
|Cancon 2009||11,825||Now this was a surprise|
|Fire and Fury: Idiots Guide to Painting American Civil War Figures||5,790||This is one of the oldest posts – it came from earlier phpNuke versions of Thomo’s Hole.|
|Colour Schemes of WW1 Warships||4,447|
|Sausages in Tomato Sauce||4,115||Everyone likes a simple recipe|
|the Lebanon – Impressions from an Aussie||2,767|
|Blitzkrieg Commander – Wargame Rules for WWII||2,640|
|Battle Of Lemnos – Naval Battle 1913||2,562||An interesting little sea battle before World War One|
|Apia, Samoa, March 1889 – The US and Germany Square Up To Each Other In The Pacific||2,486||Involving one of my favourite ships, HMS Calliope|
|WWI Merchant Navy Camouflage Patterns||2,431|
|Marie Callas – Clairvoyant and …. ?||2,428||I thought this would have appeared higher up the table as it is one of the most commented posts here.|
So, an interesting mix of history, wargames, social conscience and cooking.
