Reminder: Update your PC info for the next round of statistics updates

Posted by , | Views: 2,866

This is your reminder to make sure your PC information is correct on your user profiles. A fresh batch of statistics is generated on the 1st of each month.

You need to be logged in to see when you last updated your PC info!

You can see the statistics any time on this page.

If you want your details to actually be included in the monthly survey, be sure to head here and tick the box labelled "Include your PC details in our Monthly User Statistics?" and hit the "Update" button at the bottom, it's opt-in and you can uncheck it at any time not to be included in future statistics gathering.

PC Info is automatically purged if it hasn't been updated, or if you don't click the link to remain in for 2 years. This way we prevent too much stale data and don't hold onto your data for longer than required (it's completely removed after two years if you don't update it).

We're currently drafting up a Steam Play/Proton question, as well as simplifying the Wine question as it doesn't currently feel very useful.

Any chance we can change the question "When was the last time you used Wine to play a Windows game?" to use a checkbox for "In the last month" and let the system calculate the rest? Possibly with a dropdown for when the checkbox isn't selected to get the data for new users?
I'm having a hard time remembering when exactly I last used Wine and also having to map it to three month intervals.

Does proton count as Wine gaming ?

It's not supposed to no, since Proton is supposed to be mainly a Steam thing, which is why we will be including a Steam Play question eventually when we can get the wording and options correct.

Well, since I've been playing Overwatch, I have to change my Wine answer.

Well, since I got it as part of the Humble Monthly, I had figured I'd try it, but it doesn't seem to run with Lutris. How did you do?

It's been a while since this reminder was posted. I am certain that we skipped September. Liam, you don't automate this?

nah, I like that it reminds publicly that gaming on linux has a statistics page once a moth. And anyway an email would just be spam for me.

Would be nice if you can add NixOS to the distro list Bonus points if you also display an 'others' bar that groups the outliers that don't fit, so we can get an idea without having to check the full statistics and do the math.
