i want to analyse how many posts people usually make on daniweb per day
6.63 post per day, according to my member profile. Of course, that's averaged over my entire time here, and I certainly don't post every day. I usually make somewhere between 8-15 posts or more on any given day of activity here.
AMD_SUCKS, if you really wanted to correctly survey, just go to the member list, then open an Excel spreadsheet.
column a = 1-1384
column b = 09/02/02 - 23/11/05
Cell C1 = add up the total posts for member posts for people who joined on 09/02/02
Cell C2 = add up the total posts for member posts for people who joined on 10/02/02
Then in column d, use the following =cx/ax (where x = row number)
Then sum D1-D1384 and divide by total number of members on the member list (=19744). This gives you the average post per day for the average member. Which will no doubt be about 0.01~0.1.
If you get two people working together on a page a minute of the member list, the 659 pages should take 1.5 weeks based on 7hour days.
