• Script Download Counts

    December 1, 2016

    PowerShell

    I am now tracking the download counts as of the first day of each month. This will allow those who contribute scripts and tools to track the counts so they have the data for their community contribution data reported for CTPs, MVPs, vExperts, or employer requested data.

    At the bottom of this article is a table showing the differences in download counts so anyone can see just how popular a particular download is.

    On 28-Sep-2019, the script downloads broke the 500,000 downloads barrier. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Along with the other script authors and contributors, we are glad you find these scripts useful.

    On 25-Jan-2018, the script downloads broke 400,000 downloads.

    As of 28-Feb-2021, the scripts and files have had 91 consecutive months where every script and file has had at least one download. Since Jim Moyle “forced” me to start keeping records in July 2013, there has not been one month where a script or file has not been downloaded.

    Note: You may notice there is a huge jump from the 1-Feb-2018 to the 1-Mar-2018 download count. Let me explain. In February 2018, all the download files were moved from Dropbox to Citrix ShareFile. Because of that move, I searched everything on my site for the word “dropbox” so all links could be changed to ShareFile. While making the hundreds of required changes, I came across several scripts I had forgotten about, and that had never been put on the Downloads page. One of those scripts had almost 10,000 downloads, and I never knew it. I had to use Google Analytics going back to June 2013 to get all the download counts for the forgotten scripts. I decided not to spend hours gathering monthly download counts and updating all the counts for 57 months. I was lazy and decided to lump all the new download counts into the February 2018 stats. This decision also means the average daily downloads for February 2018 are skewed.
