Is there any thread that beats this one in number of posts? https://www.warzone.com/Forum/410884-lets-make-story-word-word

Any thread that beats this one in total active time? https://www.warzone.com/Forum/216823-multiday-ladder

I'm curious too about other stats, like top10s for "most threads started", "most posts posted", etc

Does anyone have these stats?

https://www.warzone.com/Forum/312552-win-1261-coins beats your first one at least.

That second one has been inactive for a long time in between, but idk.

[the stats were incorrect, a bug is causing the incorrect posts to be read and that post seems to duplicate itself]

I won't question the other sections, but "Oldest threads you can still post to" looks weird to me... a thread started in May is above a thread started in April, and "lets make a story word by word" isn't there while it has started in March... but the age of the threads is in the right order. What's really measured here? What do these ages mean?

Anyway, thanks for the stats

Very cool Dan!

Although, I would think this would be the oldest thread someone could still post to? https://www.warzone.com/Forum/216823-multiday-ladder?Offset=900#Reply

P.S. By the way, what did you use to get all of that data?

The thread ages are calculated by the difference in milliseconds between the first post and last post. The difference in milliseconds is then converted in a meaningful way for a human. A month is always 30 days and a year is always 365 days. Difference in milliseconds is more accurate.

P.S. By the way, what did you use to get all of that data?

Time to download the forum: 19 hours 51 mins 47 secs 293 ms. With permission from Fizzer. The rest is automated data analysis after describing what to do in a way that a computer can understand.

Edits:
Fixed bug that caused incorrect threads to be displayed on noteworthy threads.
Prevented line (used to be word, before that no restriction) from being chopped after reaching maximum post size.
Fixed bug that caused post formatting to not get rendered correctly.
Fixed bug that caused threads to be sorted by date incorrectly.

I can't do everyone's clan forum, but you can experiment with that for yourself using https://www.warzone.com/Forum/303988-clan-forum-downloader. As the raw data is left on that page, you can write your own code that perform statistics you like. To use it, go to [Your name] > Dan's Userscripts > Clan Forum Downloader.

@Viking about the mdl thread... somehow that thread was incorrectly saved. Correctly saved thread id, subject, category, number of posts, start date, etc. but all posts duplicated 30 times until the next page, and on the next page, post after the previous is duplicated 30 times. No idea why that happened... guessing it's a typo of i and j. Chances are that bug has occurred on every thread.

Edit:
Posts collected correctly using the core post reader. Probably just that thread isn't done correctly because I can't get the bug to reproduce.
All I know is the bug happened sometime between 24 Jun 14:28 and 24 Jun 19:25 before or earlier than the time of the mdl thread being read and later fixed itself before this thread was read. Bug may have came because of accidentally putting laptop to sleep during that timeframe. Not sure why that would make the bug emerge considering internet checks are done.
Will need to re-run to fix this bug. Ideally, I'd find when the bug started and when it ended and only re-run on those threads.

I assume you need to know how to code to do this, correct?

Is this also what you used for extracting all the public forum stats? Or is this a whole different process than how you extracted all the public forum stats?

Similar but different. Collected more data points for public forum, is based on how Clan forum downloader works except it’s more memory efficient. The only other change is adding an intentional delay so that the server isn’t overwhelmed by over 25000 pages being accessed all at once and removing all internet connection issues.

Oh ok! Very interesting!

Do you have to code to do this with the PUBLIC forum? Or not?

I do all things that take too long using manual methods by code. Saves time, particularly when updating, and is more reliable.

I found out what was causing dates to be sorted incorrectly, forgot that posts were sorted oldest to newest, was using oldest to newest before.
The posts are definitely being read incorrectly, rerunning didn't fix. Need to figure out what causes it to be read wrong. Is difficult as using the bare minimum runs in the expected way.

Running the process in my head doesn't find a reason for the bug to emerge. Could be a language memory issue or a bug in JSON.stringify.
