British Newspaper Archive progress

I almost put a question mark at the end of the title for this post. The British Newspaper Archive sent a email promoting the milestone passed of 7.5 million pages now online with more than 50 papers added in February.
There are now 7,625,675 pages but things seem to have slowed down. Their list of additions in the last 30 days includes just six papers covering eight years.

Birmingham Daily Mail, The: 1900 (176 issues), 1915 (137 issues)
Coventry Herald: 1916 (21 issues)
Liverpool Daily Post: 1906 (235 issues)
Northants Evening Telegraph: 1904 (314 issues)
Sports Argus, The: 1917 - 1918 (68 issues)
Sussex Agricultural Express, The: 1954 (53 issues)

Hi John,

It looks like this page wasn't displaying the new additions correctly at the beginning of the week.

It's now been fixed and is displaying an accurate number again: Newspapers added in the last 30 days

Thank you very much for helping to highlight the issue.

Best wishes,
Amy from The British Newspaper Archive
