We haven't done this for...oh, about 7 years (The 7).

Here's the breakdown by hour of activity here at The W. This time, the hour corresponds to US CDT. Also, I shrunk it to fit in this box!

Mostly a useless feature, but...

I have no posts at 2am, but one at 3am and two at 4am. Any chance of doing some computer magic to let me see which ones those are? I'm curious to see what sort of nonsense I might have been spouting at those very late or very early hours.

Hoo boy, that looks odd until you realize that the board changed time zones at one point.

We used to be recording everything in GMT - are we still? Or is it using the timezone that you have put the board in?

I don't recall ever posting at 4 or 5 am but I guess it's possible.

Well I'm pleased to say there isn't an hour in the day I haven't posted in.

And I apparently have very little to do at 10pm.

YOUR posts should show up in YOUR timezone. I think that's how we have it set up. Of course, since we're currently in Daylight/Summer time, everything you've posted during Standard time will be an hour later.

Ah, a challenge! I wonder how we could add this to one of the "posts by user" page. Posts by time is so quick'n'dirty that we've have to come up with something a little more elegant to segregate out posts from a particular hour...

I wish I'd seen this earlier when I was looking to kill some time while waiting for it to cool off outside. I'll think about it and get back to you.

OK, that was a little easier than I thought. You can now pull up your posts in a particular hour of the day if you're so inclined/bored by using the linkified hours on your "posts by time" page. ENJOY

I was never a 'graph guy', but shouldn't the bars somehow correspond a little more with the percentage? I guess what I'm asking is shouldn't all the blue added up equally to one bar of black? Am I looking at this to closely?

On a personal note I must have been a beast for years during the 11pm block, it's almost double any other hour but my last post during that hour was back in February of this year.

Sorry

Oops -- more timezone wackiness. For mine, I completely believe I've never posted between 6AM & 10AM MST, so the bar graph looks correct. But when I go through the linkifier, I'm getting posts for the inconsistent time. i.e. 6AM correctly summarises as 0 posts, but the list at the link for 6AM shows me the 10 posts from the 4AM hour.

(I'm verbose at 4AM, aren't I ???)

No, in this style, the bar graph is only as wide as the biggest number. You can see more detail this way, by not having so much empty space wasted.

i.e. If all your posts were in the 8AM hour, the graph would be as wide as the one blue bar. However, if you'd posted the same number of times in each hour, the whole graph would be solid blue bars all the way across.

Yeah, so I had a problem when looking at midnight posts (hour "0" was coming up as "no hour at all" which was loading EVERYTHING as if no hour was specified), and when I fixed THAT, I broke the case where no hour was specified, so I fixed THAT as well. They should all work with and without now.

Ohhhhhh I see. It'll work for me because my timezone IS the server's timezone, but I have to throw an offset in there for other folks. I THINK I found every place that's supposed to be coded AND it actually works! (Let me know if it doesn't actually work.)

Forgive me if this has been brought up before, but I've only just noticed it. How come some forums have a forum jump dropdown list at the bottom and others don't? A slight oversight or a case of "I'll do the rest later..."?
