The current statistics for newsletter subscriptions in the moderator analytics tools show the number of users subscribing and unsubsribing every given day.

So I could easily see how many people subsribed and unsubscribed on a given day, but it is very hard to see e.g. the current number of subscribers. I'd argue that this is the value that would be most interesting, how many users are currently receiving the newsletter.

How many users subscribed or unsubscribed on a day would still be visible in the changes to the total number of subscriptions.

So, the graph in the analytics tools should show the total numbers of newsletter subscriptions, instead of the number of subscriptions and unsubscriptions on each day.

Alternatively, make this a second graph, or available as a number somewhere. –  Paŭlo Ebermann Dec 4 '11 at 14:21

1 Answer 1

You can see the total #s of confirmed subscriptions and unsubscriptions beneath the rate-of-change charts for your selected date range.

So, to get the total # of subscribers, select a date range that includes the newsletter's entire history, and subtract the # of unsubscriptions from the # of confirmed subscriptions.

I think Fabian is looking for a graph that shows the total number of subscribers over time –  Kyle Cronin Dec 8 '11 at 0:22
