New Stats Page

Hey everyone,

I made a new stats page that shows a bunch of neat charts. I am looking for more interesting things about UER to chart, so make your suggestions!

http://www.uer.ca/stats/

There's also the old stats page:

http://www.uer.ca/forum_stats.asp

Enjoy!

I'd rather see the "By month" graphs rank the years as different lines on a simple 12-point axis, so we could see "Ooooh, bannings always go up during the summer" or "oooh, new locations always plummets in the winter", etc.

Very nice. As for suggestions,

-I'd like to see the same theme applied to stats that can currently be seen for each user: http://www.uer.ca/...s.asp?rank=XXXXXXX

-The secret stats page (or known page with certain special criteria) that shows how how the amount of posts of a user ranks in the top 10 or 15, but for all users even if that ranked that high. Also 'that high' being seen as a good thing or a bad thing.

-The new maps page accessible via some kind of menu or link from uer. Preferably from the DB search page. Not just the post in the Forum Announcements forum.

-Having the 'Try the new Location Search feature!' link that is currently in the UE DB page on he My LDB page as well.

Unfortunately, none of those statistics can be represented in a line graph or pie chart or whatever. They're just number stats.

The purpose of this new stats page is to show trends over time, vs the old stats page that only shows "now".

I guess what I mean is is some way to show stats of how users rank (regardless of how its done) not just the overall site/forum stats. I think to the typical user they'd be more interested in stats about themselves and other users than he actual site itself. Something that makes it more personal is more interesting I think.

Also, check my edit above.

Well, I already have the personalized stats page. I can maybe make some "your posts by month" stats or something...

As for your other suggestions, keep in mind that they have nothing to do with stats.

Ah, who doesn't like a good stats page! I was surprised how linear the total members chart was.

I'd be interested to se PMs sent per month, both globally, and for me personally.

Also, the age distribution might be clearer as a histogram than a pie chart.

I'd like to see how many times the word 'cock' or 'bukkake' has been used in a post, Vs posts which do not use either word.

Nice! I'm sure the graphs and charts will appeal to the visual people on here - most of us I assume.

Personally, I'd like to see more stars.

It could be interesting to subset the active members (those who have visited in the last thirty days), and then pie graph percentages for various things like "has posted in last thirty days", "has uploaded a photo in last thirty days", "has added a location in last thirty days", etc.

It would also be worth it to consider removing the current month from most of the long-run line graphs, since for most of the month it's going to show a weird drop at the end of the chart (until the month's totals catch up to the prevailing trends). I know there are comparative reasons for keeping it in, but it can also mislead the viewer into thinking that certain indicators are dropping when really it's just because it's only 10 or 20 days into the month.

If you really wanted access to the comparative function that displaying the current month provides, an alternative would be to have a separate bar graph to compare post totals (for instance) for the month to date to those at a similar point in the month for last month and for this month in previous years. So you might have bars for:
March 2007    March 2008    March 2009    February 2010    March 2010
(to March 20) (to March 20) (to March 20) (to February 20) (to March 20)
Good job though, these are nice.

Thanks for the suggestions, kowalski. I've added the pie you suggested and also lopped off the last month for all the other charts.

Av, I want to suggest, respectfully, that you help yourself to some pie while we enjoy the charts.

Av prefers caek (YES I KNOW - TERRIBLE).
But here's a prime example of how pie > cake: I don't see any cake charts, thank-you-very-much.
