Once again, a year has ended successfully for the Amiga Future.
Attentive readers will notice that I have made it easy this time.
Most of the texts I have taken over last year and updated the corresponding numbers.
Please forgive me this, but at the moment is simply too much work.
And a couple of completely new things have come along, in spite of this.
It's time to call a few numbers.
The Amiga Future Webpage now has a volume of 34 GB.
The corresponding database has increased to 550 MByte.
Currently the Amiga Future website has daily between 5,000 and 9,000 visits and 60,000 to 90,000 hits.
In the month, this means the 300,000 visits and 2,000,000 to 3,000,000 hits.
Every month over 60 to 70 GB of traffic is generated.
At this point I would like to say that the height of the visits and hits is not so important.
We want a webpage, with as many users as possible have fun.
This is our primary goal. The increase in access numbers is, of course, a wonderful secondary effect.
The Amiga Future webpage will be extended free of charge. At this point a thank you to all helpers!
In the article database are now more than 5000 German and English articles and in the gallery more than 24,500 pictures.
Meanwhile, we have 5500 files for free download online.
Of these, around 600 are commercial full versions.
The most popular download since the existence of the database is still Ports of Call, followed by Opus 5.5 and DigiBooster 1.7.
The highest traffic consumption still has the AmiKit Mirror with us. But also the WinUAE Mirror is very popular.
Most of the traffic has been required by the Foundation ISO followed by AmiKit Mirror.
But also the WinUAE mirror is very popular.
The Amiga software database will continue to work.
Meanwhile, the database includes over 4600 entries and 6700 scans.
In the cheat database are currently cheat codes, walkthroughs and hints and tips for 3415 Amiga games. This is one of the largest collections in the world.
In fact, the entire cheats collection should already be translated into English and entered into a correct database. To this end, however, we still lack the resources.
We expect several hundred euros to do this.
The Amiga Future Every project is still under construction. An app for AmigaOS 3 and AmigaOS 4 has already been released. We are currently working on a MorphOS and Android version.
Of course, we also want to offer the projects on other platforms. Since this is all done free of charge, it takes time of course.
The Android app for the latest Amiga News has already been released and has already reached over 400 downloads in Playstore.
On the Amiga Future webpage there are currently 4500 users registered.
Also note that the number of registered users for us is not a quality feature. So we do not want to specify it.
So far, about 22,500 German and 10,800 English news reports have been published on the Amiga Future website.
Of these, 1,500 German and 1,000 English news reports are from 2017.
This is about many more than last year. The trend here is clearly rising but still not enough for us.
Since we want to expand the news area, of course, we are always looking for interesting news-announcements. If you have published a program or a project please write us or use the news-form.
Overall, there are 60,000 posts in the Forum so far.
Of course, our calendar of events will be kept up to date. Here you will find practical information about each event on the subject Amiga.
Our link database currently contains more than 600 references to other pages. The database is of course constantly updated.
The costs for the Amiga Future webpage in 2017 amounted to around 1,200 Euro (hosting, programming, etc.)
In 2017 we donated around 75 euros. A thank you to all donors at this point.
Amazon has helped us very much when it comes to the hosting costs of the Amiga Future webpage. The partner program has given us about 545,- Euro.
The remaining costs are partly taken over by advertising and partly by APC & TCP itself.
At this point, of course, a very important and big thank you to the complete Amiga Future team. Without the great help of around 50 users this webpage and of course also the print magazine would not be possible.
Our Facebook page now has more than 2,000 followers.
Our Twitter account has cracked the 1,000 followers limit this year.
More than 800 users have subscribed to our newsletter and the Androis app uses about 400 users daily.
For 2018, we have written on the agenda that we will expand the homepage as much as possible, technically optimize, in order to prepare us for the 20th anniversary of the Amiga Future.
There will of course be many updates on the webpage and we hope to welcome many new readers to the printed issue.
