The Brit List - August 2021


I started compiling these lists in December 2020 to continue something @pennsif used to do as I think it helps bring the community together. Since then I have found lots more people to include. @HiveSQL has been really useful for this. I use Python with beem (by @holger80) in a script to generate what you see here. Some of the post is manual as I like to include some commentary and I will keep tweaking it. I am open to suggestions for improvements. I aim to do a fresh list on the first Saturday of each month.

I also rely on the community to let me know of more people to include who may not have obvious account metadata. You can find me in the @teamuksupport Discord to discuss it or drop me a comment.

The list will include anyone living in the UK as well as Brits who have moved abroad. Inclusion on this list does not mean I recommend people, but I will remove accounts if they are known to be abusing Hive. If you have lost control of your account through phishing or other means then let me know so that I can update your entry.

Previous editions

What it means

The numbers above are for those who had posted or commented in the previous month. In the lists below I break each region into three lists:

  • Active as above.
  • Just voting. I will guess that a lot of these use automatic votes, e.g. HiveVote. Previously there were some that appear to have been compromised as they vote for known abusers. Those are now excluded until I hear that they have recovered control.
  • Inactive in the last month, but most have done something since Hive started. We can hope to bring them back.

I want to count people rather than accounts as some have several. I can include those in brackets if you want. Let me know if you want me to update your listing. You can be as specific as you like about your location.


The number of active users has dropped again this month with the biggest change being in the south east, whilst some areas have better numers. People have other things going on, so activity will vary. Some may be away at this time of year. It is still an improvement on a few months ago.

The good news is that we found twelve people who joined up in the last month and a few others who we just had not tracked down before. I have about 450 in my master list. There have been a couple of businesses who created an account with a single post to advertise themselves. Maybe they hope to get some SEO benefit from this, but it would be great if they can find reasons to be more active.

Our best hope is that people get friends to sign up. Word of mouth is a powerful marketing tool and we just need to reach some critical mass for it to really explode. We already have pretty active hubs in various locations. We need to get some meetups organised. Those can be great to introduce new users to some of the community. If you know people with active accounts elsewhere then let them know they can benefit from being on Hive.
