User Stats Page updated with new features and fresh data

By - | Views: 7,926
I have done another bunch of work on the User Stats Page to make it hopefully even more interesting.

First up, the graphs have been refreshed, previously it was left since July, so we’ve had a bit of time since the last one.

New features
You can now select to view graphs from a different time period. Previous graphs from before July were purged due to me repeatedly adding in new questions when the page was in the earlier stages. This will become more useful as time goes on.

I’ve added a download link below each graph for you to download a copy of it to use as you wish. No watermark included, I was going to include one, but it seemed pointless since it’s an SVG you could open it up easily and cut it out. I also want people to be free to use them, so I just thought it wasn’t worth any effort (enjoy!).

The “Total users who answered this question” has a figure next to it to show the difference in how many people answered last time.

If you expand the “Click for full statistics” section, it will now show you a difference percentage over the last figures and next to it a difference of actual people answering the question from the last time too.

Next up will possibly be some additional questions and then finally have an anonymous page for people to fill out without logging in to get more stats in.

If you have requests for features in general, let me know in the comments!

Anyway to get KDE Neon in here somehow separated from Plasma? Or is that not really important enough?

Well, it is Plasma, but it's a distribution. It's an Ubuntu off-shoot, so I could look to include it in the non-combined graph possibly.

I wonder how many readers use Pantheon Shell by ElementaryOS.

Not currently a option.

Could also batch email users 7 days before closing each week asking if details are the same.

You mean once a week? That could get annoying quickly. I suspect most of us rarely update our hardware or distro-hop. Maybe once every month or two, and should be optional.

Under dual booting, would it be interesting to add an option for users who boot a Windows VM with GPU-passthrough?

Why not just auto-generate new graphs monthly? That removes the spontaneity of "I guess I feel like generating some graphs today" every couple of months. This would greatly improve the usefulness, reliability, and accurate record keeping of the graphs,

Exactly what I am working towards, naturally that will be done when it is ready to do so.

No, he said 7 days before. As in send an email a week before a new survey is going to be done.

A little pet peeve of mine. I think the graph should show the % and the hover mouse tip, the actual numbers
