Resolution added to the user stats page, please update your profiles

Note: Changelog at bottom.

I have done some more work on the user statistics page tonight. I have now included an option to pick your resolution.

Please update your profile (scroll to the bottom) to pick your resolution. If you didn't see the comments on the previous article, you can now hide your details so it won't appear on your profiles at all (so your details will be properly anonymous).

I am continuing to developing it even if I don't talk about it on GOL much (Levi will back me up with git logs!). You can also follow my coding failures on Twitter if you desire.

Today I have refactored the stats generation and the actual page that displays it to make it much easier for me to add in new graphs. This took a while to get right, but it means I can add new graphs if I want to/if the community want them a lot faster than before.

I have also done some back-end changes to make managing the graphs easier. Not quite where I want it yet, but getting closer.

It may seem slow, but it's getting there. It may be in a state soon where I can set it up to regenerate the graphs automatically. The code is there, but I am doing it manually until it's at a point where I'm happy for it to be done automatically. Once that is done I will enable people to pick previous graphs to display and we can talk about them more!

I have as suggested changed the order on the RAM graph to go from lowest to highest RAM, instead of being sorted by total users. I think it makes more sense after thinking on it as it looks more naturally structured for reading it.

Once I am happy for it to automatically generate, I will work on the actual survey page to allow more specific gaming questions and for people who don't have accounts here on GOL to participate in it too.

I will do a regeneration soon when more people have added their resolutions, I did a quick one just now so the stats page is up to date right now.

I have to say though, I do love the stats page. I am really surprised at just how many Arch users we have visiting us, wow!

If you have more suggestions for it then fire away in the comments, would love to know what features you would find useful on it.

If you like what I do with GOL, please consider supporting me on Patreon. If not, no worries I love what I do!

Ps. Sorry for the downtime tonight, totally my fault, big thanks to Levi our awesome server admin for fixing up my misshap.

Lead by example, Liam and update your profile first.

EDIT: Wait, it just doesn't show up in the info box.

Thanks for the option to hide the config details! And the new resolution stats will be interesting to see.

I noticed that the Distribution on the profile page is in the "Personal profile" area. Doesn't really fit there. Should be moved to "Computer info".

where is the CPU Architecture chart?

Updated. Wow I am surprised about the number of Arch users. I was led to believe by various users on different forums that it wasn't a very popular Distro due to it being harder to get the hang of. Maybe the news was wrong.

My mom uses arch, my brother uses arch, my wife uses arch, my moms office uses arch, I use arch, our laptops are arch and our Sofa Samsung TV uses arch too.

Make a install guide to expedite future arch installs, rolling release is the shiznit.
