I'm seems to me that you may have been looking at the first set of data on the page, which is for registered monks who logged in within the last 24 hours. That breakdown is as follows, and displays pretty visible bubbles at levels 5 and 10, and significantly more users at level 10 than 9:
Level 1:  161
Level 2:   59
Level 3:   59
Level 4:   70
Level 5:  133
Level 6:  127
Level 7:   78
Level 8:   52
Level 9:   29
Level 10:  92

The overall breakdown on registered monks looks like this. There aren't such bubbles at levels 5 and 10 as in the top graph, nor is level 10 as significantly higher than level 9:
Level 1: 14357
Level 2:   868
Level 3:   513
Level 4:   370
Level 5:   517
Level 6:   127
Level 7:   342
Level 8:   167
Level 9:    48
Level 10:  136

I like the idea of having to perform a miracle to attain to sainthood, though. For what it's worth, I think the exponential difficulty in attaining new levels offsets the new users.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
