After 4 years, our exhaustive quarterly stats are getting too long to put on fliers and business cards. So we are going to start using our yearly stats on printed materials. We will continue to publish the quarterly stats on the blog, but we will be doing the abbreviated year over year version of the quarterly stats.
Since we have made it easier to purchase ports and to do large offers, there has been a big spike in cards sold. Though this is interesting, it dilutes that value of the cards sold stat. So we are now ignoring all transactions that contain more than 1,000 cards to try to get a more accurate representation of how many cards are sold.
* The 2010-11 Cards Sold does not include 0.25M cards that sold in transactions that had more than 1,000 cards.
* The 2010-11 Q2 Cards Sold does not include 117K cards that sold in transactions that had more than 1,000 cards.
