Instructables Stats 2008

This week we looked at the top 50 Commenters of 2008 and the top 50 Instructables of 2008. Today we're going to be looking at what times Instructables are published.

To break this down, we're looking at the data in three different ways. The first shows, on average, how many Instructables are published for each day of the week in 2008. The second shows the totals for each month of 2008. Finally, we break it down for each of the 52 weeks (minus the last 2 days) of 2008.

Check it out.

Would it be within the limits of feasibility to do a graph on who has the most orangeboard comments?

Thats cool!

Hey, Ed. Could you annotate the time histories (especially the weekly plot) with the contest dates? I could probably collect the information myself by hand, but having arrows (or range-bars) on the plot would make the data self-describing.
It's not real pretty, but I added markers to the monthly graph to show when a contest was starting and ending. For some reason it will not upload as a photo but you can download the file. :-\

Your file name is wrong. There's no period between the name and "gif"

Like this.
Maybe more like lines that go from start to stop of a contest, on the weekly one.

A horizontal bar graph in other words?

More like a horizontal timeline...

Yes...that's what I meant by "range bar" in my original comment (at the top of this subthread). |---------| However, as Fungus Amungus has pointed out, it's a lot of work (*) and he has other issues to resolve.

(*) It's a lot of work because you have to manually go to each contest announcement to pull the date information, then annotate it onto the histogram. Adrian went to a substantial effort for the very nice plot she made (above).
