    TOL Snapshot: Inside the Numbers

    From time to time I'm going to look at various numbers, just for the heck of it and purely for entertainment purposes. Sky inadvertently gave me the idea when she conflated the number of individuals posting in Quixote with its popularity. I noted the number of views and it got me thinking about something else.

    So the first snapshot is one I did looking across sky's posts and now carried over across a few others, including myself. This snapshot is as of midnight and setting this thread aside for the purposes of counting.

    Now divide by the time since a person became a member. Re post those adjusted results. Yes I peeked at your dossier thread.

    Again, these are only the last 100 threads or fewer started by the individuals listed and an examination of how frequently those threads generated posts and interest. Some have single threads that yield tremendous numbers while a great many die on the vine. Some have the sort of thread that is made to die out quickly. So there are any number of ways to approach this sort of thing, but in general, this is an interesting window into the average response over a large number of threads.

    Now what I see surprised me. I'd always expected the pot stirrers would generate the most heat, posts and interest, but they mostly don't. Pay special attention to TSF and serpentdove in the next grouping.

    Looks like people just open the page, see who the author is and leave.

    My threads generate as much interest as leftover muffins! I definitely don't have the pulse of this place.

    Maybe you should try leaving just the muffin tops.

    Thoughts come and go. I'm more than happy to enter into the fray when someone else posts a good topic...or even...when someone else posts a not so good topic!

    Then she would have to hire this guy to get rid of all the stumps:



    "By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace." (Luke 1:78-79)

    The Light Eternal, breaking through,
    the world to gleam anew;
    His beams have pierced the core of night,
    He makes us children of the light.

    -Martin Luther

    The only thing worse than not being read,
    is not having your stats posted...*sniffle*

    Behold, the whirlwind of the Lord
    Goes forth with fury, A continuing whirlwind;
    It will fall violently on the head of the wicked.
    The fierce anger of the Lord will not return
    until He has done it, And until He has performed
    the intents of His heart.
    In the final days you will consider it. - Jer. 30:23-24
