Here's something that I just thought about doing, so I did it. This page will show you a relative look at the past 30 days of tagged posts using thread icons. It's pretty crude but it gets the point across.

http://the-w.com/​​tagcloud.php

You can also append "?days=[1-90]" to change it from the default of 30 days, which can still be found at the old Zeitgeist page.

Tags are linked to take you to their respective thread tag pages if you so desire. Hover over a tag to see how many posts represent the size of a tag (and also, what it is, if you can't figure it out - some look better at some sizes that others).

If I were REALLY clever, I'd find some way to make it into one of those really really pretty tag clouds that people do with words, but nobody seems to have set up code to do that with images and really, this is probably something I really shouldn't be doing right now. (If you know of some code, please point me to it!)

It looks OK on my laptop, but if the tables break on *your* device, please let me know and I'll investigate further.

If your vision of how to represent this data looks different, or you'd like to see it in some other order (or even in RANDOM order), let me know!

I see a few giant blurry messes.

Edit: This looks different on my phone. I can scroll down.

I have unblurred the most giant blurry messes.

On my desktop, the cloud is a horizontal straight line going from left to right - largest to smallest

On my blackberry, the cloud is vertical and looks like the cloud that you intend it to be.

Interesting. What browser are you using? (I guess I could probably figure this out myself, couldn't I...eh, easier to ask you)

EDIT: I'll be it's IE - it looked fine on Firefox and Chrome but I didn't try it on IE - also, there are annoying graphic borders on IE which I don't see on the other two. I'll have to see if I can code around that when I have more time

I fixed this for IE over the weekend. I also worked on some new "giant" icons so it would look pretty. It now looks VERY pretty, if I say so myself.

I've also added this link to the front page betwixt "Zeitgeist" and "The 7."

That is all.
