in reply to fortune perlmonks
This is as good a moment as any (and probably better than most) but I was going to tack a talk-stats and link-stats page onto my cblast35 mirror. So you'd know who the top overall talkers are and who was on top today. The other part - the link stats would probably just collect links to nodes and external URLs. I'm not sure what the semantics should be but maybe it shouldn't note references to user nodes. I also didn't think about the alternate text but maybe that shouldn't be included (though it is occasionally a good thing). For example - someone who said: [diotalevi|that rat bastard] might not the alternate text to live on.
It doesn't exist yet (except privately as a bunch of SQL views). If you feel like sending your comments prior to publication then let me know. Since rozalllin brought the issue up I'm interested in this as well.
