Achiev'ibles - Some interesting statistics Answered

Hi Everyone.

Tonight I did some updates to the Perl script which scrapes the statistics from your Instructable profile page. With the changes I made I now collect 3 more stats that I didn't before, because they were kept in weird places. As of tonight I'm now also collecting the number of people you're following, the number of favourites you have and your number of best answers (which is hidden, you can normally only see it by looking at the HTML). (Click here if you haven't a clue what I'm talking about and haven't heard of Achiev'ibles before)

So with these new stats, I thought it'd be fun to announce the 15 members with the most of each stat. And so here they are!

Ok so I actually included 16 for favourites and best answers, because the 16th places were so close to 15th.

Interesting stats? It should also be remembered that these aren't site wide, just for the 300 active site users that have signed up to be on the list.

Finally, Canucksgirl sent me a new patch design this week. I'm not yet collecting the number of featured yet as I can't find it as a raw number, only as a percentage. Image below!


Can You get the number of answers? If you can, you can multiply that by the percentage of the best answer to get the number of best answers.

whoops, misread, I meant to say, get the total number of 'ibles and multiply it by the percentage of featured.

Yes, that's what I'll have to do if I can't find the raw number somewhere.

For "following" and "favourites", is that the number of people they are following, and the number of projects they have favourited?

Or is it the number of followers they have and the number of people who have favourited their work?

(Or a combination of the above?)

The number they're following. And the number of projects they've favourited. Followers are the number of people following someone, which is confusing so for Achiev'ibles we've stuck with following and subscribers.

I kind of guessed that, just qualifying for others.

Ta. I've been looking at the terms for several weeks now so I have it set in my head what they mean :p
