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

Posted by , | Views: 2,571

This is your once a month 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. If this is still correct and it has been a long time since you updated, you can simply click here to continue to be included. If this isn't correct, click here to go to your User Control Panel to update it!

PatolaI wish it had more flexibility in the controllers part. Since we Linux users are not mainstream, it's quite useful to know when some other people have more unusual controllers, like HOTAS sets or steering wheels.
Suggestions? I am happy to make adjustments, but I can't act on vague stuff like that. What do you want changed/added?

liamdaweDone, took some research and some hair-pulling but I managed to get it to work.

Great, thanks! It shows a drop in the total number of users, when checking some trends. Is it because some users aren't updating profiles, or because some users stopped specifying some particular parameter in their profile?

The drop in the total number could be:
- Some removed their answer
- Some unticked the box to be in the survey
- Old data past two years

And of course a mixture of all three.

"Monitors" should rather be named "Number of monitors", because it can be confusing. I was on the trends page (hint Ubuntu ) and I thought the monitors trends had broken label associations and we got their indexes/IDs instead of the names. Programmer issue, but we're still people.

Nothing too fancy, I think an extra field where you could enter a list of the devices you use would do.

liamdaweWell, Awesome is just a Window Manager, so you're using KDE as your desktop?

Yeah, but Awesome chooses to not follow some of the more cruft-y EWMH specs (only one virtual workspace over all monitors, for example), so my desktop is differently compatible than normal KDE.

Still KDE and all the programs associated though? If you use KDE, you use KDE ;)

The survey isn't currently meant to dive into every single little detail about people's setups, more to get an overview.

I will think on this, that sounds like it would get pretty messy, especially to get some kind of chart out of it.

Just so that you understand what I mean. I mostly play games with my steam controller, almost through sc-controller and not steam's own driver/configuration. But for two specific games - Euro Truck Simulator and American Truck Simulator - I bought a G29 steering wheel with pedals and shifter. For space sim games I like to try and use my HOTAS kit (Thrustmaster Warthog Stick, Saitek X52 Pro and a illuminated panel with 28 buttons called "MFD F-16"). However I also have a chinese USB pedal set with three pedals that output "a", "b" and "c" (until I fiddled with udev's hwdb to change this output), a chinese numeric USB keyboard with function keys, a regular PS/2-style USB gamepad, a bluetooth mini android controller, a finger mouse, one or two other devices that I used to play games but can't remember, and two that I never used to play games but think it would work: a chinese gaomon drawing tablet and a 3D Connexion Space Navigator 3D mouse. I like to mess with input devices, if you haven't figured it out already. Ah! I also have a programmable EEG kit, but I will take some time to program it and be able to make it into a proper input device...

since we're requesting stats we'd like added, i think some storage media stats would be interesting(at least they would be to me): type(ssd, pcie nvme, hdd, floppy(ok, not really on the floppy )), amount(GB,TB,PB),RAID(0,1,5,10,:hardware HBA, mobo fakeraid, linux software raid, LVM).

then i could brag aboit the Areca 1231-ML 12 port raid hba i'm phasing out with m.2 pcie nvme sticks
