Haven't run RHP Player Stats in several months. Here's the latest update. Look at the web page for a table view of the stats.
Here it is in text form ... kind of hard to read without tables and graphs.

This is only the second time I've posted the stats. Let's compare May 12, 2008 with September 22, 2008. These dates were just random and not selected for any reason. Over time we can determine cycles, trends, and seasonal effects of the data.
Overall, not much change. The numbers are about the same.
Originally posted by petrovitcha couple of years ago it was 1280, then 1281, then 1285, 1286... can't remember the exact times, but it seems now it's been more or less steadily climbing towards the average... you could probably find some of the older data by searching the forums. the average has been posted only once or twice (by chris I think), but median more often as it's so easy to find out.
I don't know anything about RHP's internal numbers over time, but the statistics I've gathered in May and September show the median is unchanged (1303, 1305). I am not disputing what you have said; I'm just saying that my statistics are independent of RHP and simply draw from their data.
