So, I wrote a program in excel that uses the search feature on the forum to extract posting data (specifically thread title and post dates/times), and then from that data generates charts related to post counts/times. I've been learning how to code and I figured I could get something useful or interesting out of my practice. Below you'll see an early version output that has data on my posting habits. I've run the program on a few others (either via their request or on my own) and provided them with the results (either in private or publicly on the forum).
I'd like to open this up to other people who may be interested in knowing a bit about their own posting habits. However, there are a few caveats:
- I will be running the program only during non-peak hours to avoid slowing down the system.
- I would prefer to post the results for any requests publicly in this thread. However, I will provide results privately to those who ask, but priority will be lower on those.
- Please include your time zone in your request.
Any comments/suggestions are welcome, such as requests for additional analysis, etc. Also, a general discussion about privacy or whatever would be interesting.
