The number of top nodes for each month, obtained from jcwren's PTAV (as referenced by grinder in Re: Are monks hibernating?), followed by the same data normalized to the month in 2002. Cheers.

    I simply love statistics! Now if someone would turn it into a pie-chart? ;-)

      Must have moved from development to managment... ;)

      NEXT UP, can someone generate me the Cost/Benefit Analysis! for this information.

        This information was, if I understand it correctly, provided free of charge, and is worth every penny. Didn't even have to fire up my favourite interpreter for that...

        I just remarked that because I have been working for a solid 7 days to make statistical graphs on basis of a large maritime claims-database I run, where in the end the client was more impressed by the nice colours and the 3D-pie charts than by the data or the analysis.

    I'll take this opportunity to say I think it's probably normal for posts/nodes in a knowledge network like this to spike quickly (as word about the site gets around) and then taper slowly off to a consistent lower rate. So many things have been said so well here that many threads become a discussion of which past threads make the best examples for a particular situation. Searching PerlMonks probably accounts for a great many answers that in 2002 would have required a fresh post.

    That recently we've seen an upward trend since about November and perhaps August (month over month and year over year) is a promising sign. However, I think that we slowed somewhat in posts from 2002 to 2006 isn't a drastic problem.

      But if the posts don't pick up, I will never be able to pass vroom's XP!

      I would guess only a very small portion of posters do a Super Search before posting. And even then, anything other than trivial questions are hard to find previous answers for. The Q&A section may have some impact though.

      IIRC, there was a period where the site wasn't indexed on any of the search engines, which probably had a downward impact on traffic. That's now been rectified, which may account for the recent upturn. Other than that, I'd say things are tapering off because of other places to ask Perl questions (and get answers), and a general (but relatively slow) decrease in the popularity of Perl over the last few years.

    I'm trying very hard to skew the data.
