Or the points are bigger the more posts one person did on a particular page.
Could be very nice.
How about a stacked histogram of posts per timeframe (we should represent this kind of data as a histogram rather than a line graph anyway, if I'm not mistaken) with a unique colour (and hatching pattern as redundant coding for colour blind people) per person? People who only post once in each bucket (bukkit?) might need to be lumped into an 'other' colour though. Or something similar by page, though of course there's always the same number of posts on a page so it'd just be a big colourful rectangle (In fact, if posts were as high as they were wide, it'd be so long that it would look like a thread.) Bonus points for arranging the coloured squares into a pattern.

Would that mean Blitzgirl would be the first ever Knight Temporal? At least it would create some kind of bizarre paradox where a Knight existed before the Knights existed. Or something. If so, I approve of it.
I believe so, since I became knighted when I read my signature on newpage 259, and the Knights Temporal didn't exist for a good 30 newpages or so after that.
Gosh, I didn't even notice that question at the Time. I guess we have our answer.
