Okay, among the oddities in the search requests (besides the always creepy "anorexic porn"): what the hell is a "penius" and who is "brad bitt"?

We just have to make sure to talk about anorexic porn in regards to MeFi, because that's what gets us those hits!

I'm still holding out for "toboggan porn."

On that note, here's the graphed stats including February.

What date did the big changes (sort by recent comments, etc.) take place on? Can we see a blip in the graphs?

I can't really see any changes rodii.

Isn't it weird how the weekend effect is so distinct?

What is everyone doing on the weekends, enjoying life offline or something?

Apparently... I find myself online less and less on weekends... or even in the evenings. Maybe it's my TiVo, but the only time I'm really online anymore is at work. And I think I spend far too much time online there. At least from a productivity perspective.

I was actually mildly suprised to see that peak usage is at 6pm. I though it'd be earlier in the day.

Is there any data on when the most posts are made? I usually only hit MeFi at work (seems dave and I suffer from the same productivity issues :-), and am met with one or two hundred messages (usually closer to 100) when I sign on the next morning.

But during the day I'm also usually met with one or two hundred messages when I hit the page. I usually visit around 8am, 1pm and 5pm EST, in part because the afternoon times are just after the west coast's morning and noon (respectively) rushes of activity.

Basically I'm just wondering when if the peak traffic times matches up with the peak posting times, or if us lazy, no-good bastards posting while we're supposed to be working are hogging the place.

(and yes, there's quite generous representation from Britain and Australia especially, and many other parts of the world, but I think it's safe to say that the majority of users are in the United States. Us Canadian and Mexican types just get to ride that wave of slow-down. :-)

oh, the time thing is off by 8 hours, as IIS keeps track of hits in GMT, so -8 hours on all the times.

Ah, so then the most active MetaFilistines are indeed wasting hours normally alloted for productivity then, eh? Nifty.

Somewhere along the line google spidered wetlog.metafilter.com, which is now more popular in the search referral stakes than wrongwaygoback.com. Of course, the singular winner from all of this is this page. For obvious reasons.

interesting results, especially in the referrals, and there especially among the weblogs that send traffic. Looked like Megnut and Camworld had the most...

Lately I've been too busy to check out MeFi much during the day. Instead I open it up ~midnight Eastern and reload periodically over the next couple hours. And let me tell you, this place is DEAD during those hours. I come in to see 30 new threads, many with anywhere from 30-70 responses, and by the time I can post anything in the thread most people have already abandoned it and moved on. We need more non-Americans.
