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 people to include. @livinguktaiwan has helped a lot with this. 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.
- May 2021 - 198 active.
- April 2021 - 158 active.
- March 2021 - 139 active.
- February 2021 - 112 active.
- January 2021 - 106 active.
- December 2020 - 92 active.
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.
We finally hit 200 active UK Hivers this time! Not a big increase on last month, but then I may have found most of the establisted users now. There have been about a dozen totally new people in the last month that we have found. Others have come back after long breaks. I have over 400 accounts in my list to check, which is why I had to automate it.
I am adding locations to people gradually, but it is not a priority and some people do not like to be too precise about where they are. It is clear that Brighton is becoming a hub of Hive activity with lots of musicians. Can someone get Fatboy Slim to sign up?
It is encouraging that more people seem to have joined in the last three months than in the rest of the last year.
Now things are opening up it may be possible to have some meetups. Please let me know of any that are planned and I will feature them.
