Ok,

first, I replaced all language strings and db queries with mybb internal functions. so it make use of the mybb cache and it is language neutral.
Also I add a special header that allows browsers to cache the file:

statsig.php
<?php
define('IN_MYBB',1);
define('NO_ONLINE',1);
require_once './global.php';
$lang->load('stats');
$stats=$cache->read('stats');

header('Content-type: image/png');
header('Last-Modified: Sat, 26 Jul 1997 05:00:00 GMT'); // really this is a hard caching method...

$img = imageCreateFromPNG('statsig.png');
$fontcolor = ImageColorAllocate ($img, 0, 0, 0);

ImageString ($img, 2, 15, 10, utf8_decode($lang->members).' '.$stats['numusers'], $fontcolor);
ImageString ($img, 2, 135, 10, utf8_decode($lang->posts).' '.$stats['numposts'], $fontcolor);
ImageString ($img, 2, 255, 10, utf8_decode($lang->threads).' '.$stats['numthreads'], $fontcolor);
ImageString ($img, 2, 80, 40, utf8_decode($mybb->settings['bbname']).' - '.$mybb->settings['bburl'], $fontcolor);

ImagePng ($img);
ImageDestroy ($img);
?>

now nobody needs to touch the file. Exclamation

just copy the the statsig.php and a statsig.png to root directory. that's all! Big Grin

Next idea: Create a hard linked image in ./cache/ folder and refresh it only every hour (or so)... Shy

Is this something you'll implement?

Maybe, but I have to re-read some php function manuals. Uh, I got headache some hours before...

I don't get it :| What does this do?

It will create a file (the signature image) in cache folder and load it to browser directly if it exsits. This will improve the image loading time and reduces the server load severely.

I'm working on it. Toungue
