I clicked on over to the “Users” menu and pulled the data to have some fun with. This isn’t quite as cool as the Forum Stats Roundup thread, but entertained me while watching lolMNF.
There were 320 posters in this dataset, which I assume encompasses everyone with an account who has done something on the site and gave me enough to mess around with. The stats I had at my fingertips were:
- Likes Received
- Likes Given
- Topics Started
- Total Replies
- Threads Viewed
- Posts Viewed
- Total Calendar Days Visited
- Total Time Spent on Site
The Forum Addict award:
This one goes to @Smacc_25, who is far and away the highest combo of Time Spent on Site and Total Replies (and who also crushes the Brexit thread)
Worth noting that the President of the United States is tied for 7th in posting frequency. Maybe chill out a bit with the twitters, guy.
The Most Liked poster:
This one goes to @Riverman, who is a bit of an outlier and has bucked the trend of Likes per Post deteriorating with posting frequency. (To keep the Likes/Post metric reasonable I limited this to posters with >100 posts.)
Ole’ Donny not looking too hot here either.
The Biggest Lurker:
This is a tough one, but I think it goes to @Fabian. Fabian is a lover, 28x more likely to give a heart than to post themselves.
As the color in that chart shows, Fabian is also a prolific reader of the site, reading nearly 35,000 posts in 4 total days spent on the site, but only posting 9 times themselves.
Honorable mention to @SwankyWilder, who has viewed over 30,000 posts but hasn’t yet posted themselves. Maybe someday.
The Stingiest Poster
This award goes to @StrontiumDog who has read over 30,000 posts… and has yet to like one. Hopefully he’ll like Swanky’s first post and we can go from there.
