   Whiskeypocalypse
You guys know it already.  The whole gaming world knew it.  Giant Bomb was taken out by Skynet on April 21-23.   Or was it potatoes? Anyway you can read all about the reasons for it on the Whiskey Media blog and to your right you can see what zero traffic looks like on a graph.  Exciting, no?  And then BAM, all you guys came back to hang out and it was like it never happened. Thanks community!  We got each other through the Whiskeypocalypse. 

None of that matters though, because nothing, nothing, can stop this community from doing community things.  I'm not even gonna get into it with words.  Just start clicking through these charts.


 
  Popularity Contest Winners
Oh and for the beauty pagent contestants, here's who won the popularity contest this month.  Ok I kid, I'm just bitter I'm not in the top 25 this month.  I was cheated down to position #33.  I'll need to start blogging about the Whiskey Media Internfest 2011, maybe that will get some attention, EpicSteeeeve.   

Thanks guys for asking for stats on Twitter.  Hope I got everything you asked for.  Also don't forget to hit up the Wiki Task Queue and earn some bonus wiki points.  There are plenty of wiki articles that need your help.

Ethan actually hand draws all these graphs and charts. You couldn't find a usable blue marker around here if your life was on the line.

It feels good to maintain the top Wiki Mod spot. Although I am greatly disappointed that Alex has beaten me for the most popular user on Giant Bomb.

Data Porn is the best kind of porn for robots.

Something is very wrong with the popularity contest. I cannot be more popular than Claude.

This is what happens when you expose your shoulders in front of the entire community during the porn purge.

Hell yes, I always love data porn! I'm consistently impressed with the amount of wiki output that the community achieves every month.

Reddit and PSN were down too...almost took the gun in my mouth that week.

EDIT:  Reddit WAS down...PSN still sucks.

I know what you mean. Without GB and Reddit, the internet became a dark, lonely place.

As I suspected, I'm nowhere to be found this month due to the accident that sent me 16 days into the future. Oh well.

I did last month. Hell, I was the top non-mod/staff blogger of that month.

Take a picture once a day, and turn all 30/31 into a monthly .gif. That would be incredible.

Shit that is so true. Only if I weren't so lazy. Actually, I only grow my beard because I become to lazy to shave. I'm a sad case.

I surprised that I'm ranked third in creating topic during the Post-Apocalypse period. Creepy.

I don't see anything weird? It looks accurate to me. What is it that bothers' you?
#47 Posted by Marino (5275 posts) -
@Hardgamer: I just thought it was kinda odd that games like Anomaly or RE3 were in the top 10 most edited pages.

I think I came up with a stat that should be in the next Data Porn: views per blog posted this month (just total views over total number of blogs posted in a month). Is that possible?

#49 Posted by bemusedchunk (817 posts) -

Are these graphs statistically significant?
