Isn't it already available in the memberlist? Or were you hoping for something that has a graph attached to it?
Some sort of graph for individual users would be pretty cool.
Though we can't actually do much without bondings and he doesn't seem to be around much.
The memberlist does hold some cool stats though. Top posters or coin holders and frih$. I'd give you a link but I'm posting from my cell. Perhaps dean can pass you the link of you haven't already seen the page.
I know about the memberlist. With A graph you can in more detail see what periods you have been more active. I think it could also help keep up post motivation and it's useful for other members to see. If they see you rarely post on Mondays they know they shouldn't expect a reply until Tuesday.
This will be really interesting. "View your posts" link do something similar and maybe this script can do half of job.
Tracking detailed stats for 85000 members might be too much processing work for the server to handle.
We already had to replace phpbb's search function because it was getting too server-intensive given the amount of posts.
It would be nifty yes, but I wouldn't want to see the forums slowed down in order to get it.
Once a day would be plenty often to run it, and I think most of the function could be provided by any of the users who want to. I would suggest authorizing a bot account, which one of our technical wizards could set up, and scan thru the 1288 or so pages once a day, probably with a half second delay between page requests.
I don't think it is necessary to use the Frihost servers to massage the data, although if it is done externally and looks good, Bondings might eventually decide to make it a local function. If the bot ever caused problems, it could easily be forbidden to run until it were repaired.
The obvious place to show the result would be on another site. I would like to see a forum thread set up for it though, and have the bot edit the first post every day to show a summary and give a link to the full detail. Of course some of the things could be done manually for a while and written into the script when perfected.
