      Description

      I'm not sure what would be involved, but I think it might be worth doing just for the the coolness factor - to have live or nearly live statistics for the number of registered users. Knowing that we have cleared 400,000 registered users, I feel like we are missing something when we have on the front page that it is only over 330,000. I don't want someone to have to update this manually. It would be better if we could have it done automagically. Similarly, we should be able to get a language and country count as well and perhaps the number of registered (and approved) Moodle sites.

      Currently the Moodle Community section reads:

      Moodle has a large and diverse user community with over 330,000 registered users on this site alone, speaking over 70 languages in 196 countries (we have more statistics here). The best place to start is Using Moodle, which is where the main international discussions are held in English, but we have a variety of groups discussing other topics and in other languages.

        Anthony, thanks for your suggestion, which I hope can be included as part of our moodle.org improvements.

        Excellent, do we want the community section of the main http://moodle.org/ to also have live statistics? Currently it says we have over half a million but does not give a number. Peace - Anthony

        The front page won't look like that once we go live ...

        I'm thinking something really simple, very little text, perhaps a big picture, download link, top news item ... I'll start a new subtask for this

        I'm a big fan of the KISS principle so simple sounds good and then give folks the option to go find what they want. Peace - Anthony

        p.s. - Is there a test/demo site of what is being planned for the new front page/site? Feel free to add me as a watcher to the new subtask. I'd be happy to weigh in with my two cents.
