Instructables

Total Views Count - 11/08/2011

Hi everyone, sorry I've not run this in almost a month now. I went on holiday for two weeks, then was lazy, then forgot. With great apologies, here is this week's run!

Congrats to Canida who hit 5m, Kiteman who passed 2m views and Chrysn, Lemonie and Weissensteinburg who reached 1m views between this and the last runs. And welcome to all the new members since the last run, there are now over 200 people in the group.

I owe a lot of patches to members of this group, would anyone care to volunteer to go through the list and work out who needs what patches, so I can give them all out? I have been meaning to automate patch giving so it happens each and every time automatically, but haven't found time yet; too much work and too much reading!

This forum topic is a printout of the results of a Perl script I try to run weekly. To be included in it, join this  group. The Perl script visits the profile page of each member of the group and extracts their Total Views then saves them to a file that can be opened by me in Excel. I then post the last 3 columns so everyone can compare their weekly gain with their friends. While you can easily see this data for you on the You page, this script allows people to compare their success/gain with their friends. I hand out patches as achievements when members of the group reach 50k, 100k, 250k, 500k and 1m views.

This forum topic is a printout of the results of a Perl script I try to run weekly.
tqwerty2 years ago
22 thousand! woot!

Congrats to everyone!

(yes I'm late..)
splazem3 years ago
Twenty thousand views! Woohoo! 
Two things, though: one is that you have the date wrong, and the other is that I could help with the patches. Thanks for running this!
Jayefuu (author)  splazem3 years ago
The date's right, most americans just can't read dates :p

11th day of the 8th month of the 2011th year.
splazem Jayefuu3 years ago
The correct date should read: 8/11/11, seeing as how instructables is based in the U.S.A. :)
Jayefuu (author)  splazem3 years ago
Except that I'm British and non-US dates make far more sense.
splazem Jayefuu3 years ago
But I'm American and non-US dates make no sense.
I'm a fan of the international - DDMMMYYYY format. 11AUG2011 is understandable to all : )
Yes, that's definitely the best. It is can get confusing here in Canada since we see both the metric and the American dates.
anything metric...
Kiteman3 years ago
Two million views...

That's just not real.

The weekly gain is more than five times the population of the town I live in, plus the next town along...

As for Christy and Scooch... I remember when readerships of that scale made you an international superstar.

Time for a paradigm shift.
ynze Kiteman3 years ago
Nice mug, by the way!
Kiteman ynze3 years ago
Jayefuu (author)  Kiteman3 years ago
Sold anything yet?
Kiteman Jayefuu3 years ago
No

:-(

On the plus side, all it's cost me is a bit of time.

sorry if I missed out something...but do you ship internationally?
Yes, but I don't know how much it costs - the items come from the US.
hm....ok...
splazem Kiteman3 years ago
With all the forum posts and mentioning, how could we not know? :)
ChrysN Kiteman3 years ago
2 million is awesome! Time for more patches, we will need patches for 2m,3m,4m,5m,6m etc.

ynze Kiteman3 years ago
Well, you guys ARE sort of superstars in Instructables Universe, for my part :)
Goodhart ynze3 years ago
I can hardly wait to finish my current project....I hope it turns out better then my last one *sigh*
How the? So I'm getting my 150 +/- of weekly gain and I suddenly get 947 views of gain? Might have something to do with the new instructable... I'll post more!
vishalapr3 years ago
Yipee! I'm sort of in the middle...!

Can't wait for my patch....
And you are double mine...
wow!cool!
dombeef3 years ago
23,875 View gain, whooo!

And I have 66,499 views, I think I am needing a 50000 view patch, NAO!

Randomguy653 years ago
Holy shhhhhh I gained alot. O_o
