Data Porn: Giant Bomb March 2011 - Eric Pope Edition

Some of you wondered why I didn't post a February Data Porn post?  Maybe you assumed I was slacking but the truth is, these data posts are based on months and I've never believed February was truly a month. So I skipped it.  
 
In a tweet this morning I asked you guys what March data you'd like to see.  Whiskey Media's own Eric Pope (@MrPope) asked about page views to his person page.  Apparently he makes video games.  As you can see Pope's page was viewed an astounding 134 times in March with a strikingly high 2:34 minutes average page view.

After seeing these numbers Pope tweeted the following:

 Top Wiki Moderators
Let's move on to the meat of what you the wiki and forum community are here to see.  I know you guys are competitive.  You're an elite cadre of game and hamburger aficionados.  Who's the most popular blog poster on Giant Bomb?  Who's the best wiki moderator?  It's about bragging rights.  It's about knowing you're making a difference in this dark and desperate world.  And by God I'm going to give you the details. 
 
ZombiePie and Marino completely dominated the wiki moderation queue this March.  Moderating 1,750 wiki submissions is not easy, but on top of that, ZombiePie runs the @GiantBombSquad twitter account.   If you're not already following @GiantBombSquad you should be. There's no a better way to stay up-to-date with the best of the community reviews, blogs, contests, and stupid antics here at Giant Bomb.
 
 Top 25 Member Blogs
Now if you want to know who get's the most blog pageviews, this chart is for you.  Someone once accused my monthly data post of being a shallow mix -- a popularity contest  -- of charts.  Well that person should not click to expand the image on the right.  Actually page views of Giant Bomb members' blog posts are not just about popularity, it's also about who's got the attention of the mob, hopefully by adding something useful to the conversation.  I'll let you be the judge.

Now I couldn't get stats on everything you guys asked me for over twitter.  Partly from incompetence, I'll admit.  But below is a mix of charts you'll find fascinating.  What are the top browsers, OS, and languages the GIant Bomb community uses (@jayrossss)?  What percent of videos are watched to completion (@LostLeftTweet)?   And other charts.

Damn, ZombiePie is killing it on Wiki mods.

Can people stop reading Jeff's blog already? Give the rest of us a chance.

Posted by ArbitraryWater

One day I too will reach the top 25 blog posters, and all will tremble at my knowledge of obscure old games! Thus sayeth I, ArbitraryWater.

Data boner right here. 
 
I am kind of grossed out that nearly 15% of people use Internet Explorer, I thought the only good use for IE was to download Chrome...

It's a pity you couldn't get the 3DS forum posts stats I wanted, but it's no big deal.

I think you standing will diminish.  Especially after your most recent "blog."

Deadlines put a big dent in my wiki moderation stats last month but I'll be sure to pick up in April. I still think it's kind of cheating that ZP links the community spotlight to his own blog (added to the unfair advantage all us mods get for being automatically in everyone's user feed) but the spotlight is always awesome so it doesn't really matter.

I thought you said you were going on hiatus?  Has this data porn stroked yer ego enough to change yer mind?  :b

@mracoon: I was getting in the top 7 before I was made a moderator, so really there is no excuse :D 
 
@Kyreo: My ego has been officially stroked, yes ;)

Yay, I'm the 15th most viewed blogger. Maybe one day I can reach that number without needing to give away free games, though that would require me to be able to write everyday! :P

Interesting as always, Ethernet Ethan.

Hm, Slaker117 looks easy enough to beat, but my goal right now is JJWeatherman.

Posted by WalkerTR77

Why do I always have some semblance of an expectation to be on these charts when I clearly won't be. Every time I click one I for a moment think "maybe I'm on there", even though I know I'm obviously not.

Scandinavia representing. But then again, the weather is still so ass that there's nothing better to do.

Since we are on the topic of wikis. How do I get the devs to add achievements to a page?

What you mean is "some of  us mods get for being automatically in everyone's user feed". I'm still not auto followed by new users, and I'm pretty sure there are a couple of other guys who aren't, too. I'm sort of glad, too, because I can look at my follower count and know exactly how many people have actually decided to follow me.

But they already do when they read my blogs enough to get me to the #3 position.

Wait...Quick Looks have the least views of all the videos? That is...something. And TANG leading? What?
Did I get that chart right?

No, that's the completion percentage. It's what percentage of people watch right to the very end when watching those types of video's.

Well ok, that makes more sense, they seem more "skipworthy" than short trailers. Still, good for TANG.

Sweden on 5th. That was surprising... and awesome!

Play the game. That will create an achievement listing when your achievements are synced. And then at some point one of the staff (it seems to be Jeff typically) will associate that listing with a game page, also creating the page if necessary.

What the hell?  I posted like ten times last month, how am I not a top poster?

Posted by Daveyo520

Could you show the info for most XP from site quest? The page on the site still doesn't work.

Posted by StarFoxA

 Second place?  This is ridiculous.

That tragedy has been rectumfied.
