A look back at 2020 on thesession.org
As 2021 begins, I thought it would be interesting to cast an eye back on The Session in 2020.
Here are the numbers…
In 2020 you collectively added 3,044 tune settings. Of those, 1,287 were new tunes.
You added 435 new recordings.
You started 1,258 new discussions.
Needless to say, there weren’t so many trips, or events, or new sessions as in previous years: 50 trips, 108 sessions, and 224 events.
You collectively posted a whopping total of 24,929 comments in 2020!
You added to your tunebooks 48,854 times. And even though it’s a relatively recent feature, you’ve already collectively bookmarked 3,004 times.
And in 2020 we welcomed 4,298 new members.
Here are the heroes of the tunes section:
Damien Rogeau added 119 tune settings in 2020:
JACKB and Fernando Durbán Galnares both added 145 tune settings:
gian marco added 183 tune settings:
And NfldWhistler added 673 tune settings in 2020:
A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the site during the year!
There were also some new features added in 2020:

I’ve been steadily improving the print output over the year, particularly for tune settings.

This should’ve really been added sooner, but you can now add online events to the events section.

And perhaps the biggest change is the recent addition of the inline audio player for tune settings.

I hope you got some good use out of the site in 2020. I’d particularly like to thank everyone who was able to chip in towards covering the costs—much appreciated!
Here’s to another tune-filled year! And who knows what new features 2021 might bring?
Happy new year, everyone: I’m very, very happy that you’re here!
