State of the Community

edited July 2014 in Announcements
After looking through the members list on the old forums to find the names, and searching here, I've made a table, some statistics, and graphs about our post and topic status as of this time. I included any members I could find on both of the boards.

Link: here.

Let me know if I'm missing someone. Interestingly, I made the most posts so far slightly ahead of gravybatter, but Elmzran is leading on topics. Shadow is also a member but has made no contributions yet. All may be jalern, but this data is based upon username attribution.

    I'm killing it with the topics. That should be expected though, but thank you Kerlc, Jalern, ASG, and Gravy for making plenty of topics as well.

    This is super neat ASG, thanks for this.

    Even so, it's better than just citing "because I said so".

    I'm pretty sure. Unless Elmzran changed that here, too.

  • Actually, abused statistics are worse than "Because I said so"

    For example

    Cancer causes Cellphones

    Did you mean the other way around or a XKCD reference? Any way, I'd still argue the other is worse is because at least with statistics, it has some basis in reality (even if the wrong conclusion is made with it). Citing "because I said so" could get anything done based upon nothing.

    What is XKCD? It sounds like XKCEOTWS if you replace D with EOTWS.

    How about the use of both, such as:

    *statistics*

    These statistics prove ___________ because I said so.

    I'm not sure what that would be. Why? 92% of the statistics are made up because I said so. No, seriously, I'm not sure. I can see it as better because it's two means of proof/persuasion, but also worse because it makes it sound weaker with the ending. At least that's the way I view it.

    Well, the restaurant owner is a mate of mine and he also operates a meth cook, so I pretty much have to do him favours every now and then.
