Yes there are! We can't give an ETA on that, as usual :), but I can say that we have been working on it. I'm not sure what type of metrics we're going to let admins get a hold of yet but your ideas on totals might be pretty close. Thanks for your continued use and support!
It's been a couple of years since I asked this, but has their been any progress on statistics? I would love to know the size of my forum, how many posts are made per day, how many are open, how many posts each user has made, etc, etc. This is pretty essential information to determine the health of your community. Cheers.
This information is all reported to Google Analytics through the GA setting. We have a custom dashboard as well with some helpful views of the data. Unfortunately the GA option only reports content after it's enabled.
