So in the moderation tools box thing that you have for subreddits you moderate, there's an option called 'traffic stats' and that's where you find all of the information which, through extreme hardship, I screenshotted.

First off, Graphs (the October ones are smaller as the month isn't over yet.) You get to see some graphs of the last couple periods of time that, sadly, you can't change. All the information is pretty self explanatory, but just in case, they define unique as, Unique logged-in and logged-out users who viewed your subreddit. I think it's pretty cool how they show through what form of reddit the subreddit is accessed, and I'd assume that these stats are similar for 'bigger' subreddits. Mobile is taking over, but at least the use of newreddit is decreasing ¯\(ツ)_/¯. Also it's insane that around 150,000 of you individuals visit this subreddit a day. The average unique monthly visitors over the last 11 full months is 2,142,559(.18) people, making us the 146th country by population size right between The Gambia and Lesotho.

The month stats can be found right here, in this handy graph we are shown.

The last stats shown are by day of the week (I guess people really do get bored on Wednesdays,) and then by each day for about 2 months back, seen here. Unfortunately zero people visited this subreddit on October 16th, so maybe it's time to shut it down (or the numbers haven't been updated, but I'm kind of a pessimist about these things.)

Despite it's complete insignificance in the world, I know I was kind of curious about these kinds of statistics, so maybe this'll appeal to someone like that. Or it won't appeal to anyone and it'll be never seen by anyone. Or I can abuse my powers as moderator and pin it to the top of the subreddit so everybody has to at least look at the title, which seems like the option most likely to make me feel important, so I think I'll do that.

Hopefully this won't result in failure, but I was thinking it'd be fun to have cool images for either the background or upvote/downvote icons for this sub. If anyone has any ideas/designs they'd like to share, comment here or message us! Also, if you guys prefer everything stays the way it is, feel free to say that too
