Also, I would like an inter-engine fermentation system.

We have clouds for the top 150 tags posted to Mefi, Music, Meta, Jobs, IRL and Ask. We can see the top ten tags we've used listed on user profiles. Would it be possible to view all tags (or a greater subset than 'top ten') for individual users, either in a list or cloud form? [more inside]

Gosh! (Is a word we've collectively used 5,707 times since 1999!) [more inside]

Data Wankery Inside

I recently got my hands on a copy of Tableau Desktop. It's supposed to be a business intelligence app, but nevermind that. The first thing I did was hook it up to the infodump files! [more inside]

Where has everyone gone?

Has site commenting become less frequent? It seems like threads are shorter on average these days, especially in the last few months. Is this due to the loss of a few prolific people?

What's on your infodump wishlist?

I'm a geek in need of a spare-time project. I love metafilter, and numbers can make me kinda giddy at times, so the infodump sounds like a great place to start. Plus, this pony reminded me that I've been meaning to do something for a while. I just lack ideas. [more inside]

Datawank much?

Here, because I didn't sleep well last night, is a look at the use of the rhetorical device "[verb/adjective/descriptor] much?" on Metafilter. Specifically, on the blue, the grey, and the green. [more inside]

Tiny Pony: highlight mods' user names

It might be helpful to subtly color a mod's user name differently from other user names, especially in MetaTalk. I occasionally click into a long thread and wonder if a mod has weighed in, and find it hard to scan for that information. I imagine it would also be very helpful for new users to know who the moderators are. Potential downside: ordinary commentary & thread contributions may appear more weighty and official than you actual want them to. Your thoughts?

Post, comments and user number charts

Here are two charts about metafilter. Posts and user numbers and comments and user numbers. Each dot represents a post (or comment), with the post number and number of the user who posted (or commented) as the xy data. I don't remember what prompted me to make these (some metatalk thread, I'm sure), but I found them again on my hard drive and thought someone else might find them interesting (I brought them back up to date, too). There are half a dozen interesting little milestones that show up in the graphs, more than I could see probably.
