Woah :shock: that is awesome.

Thanks. I know, it isn't really an efficient info-graphic. I created it for aestethic value. So yes, you could classify it as "art" (though I don't think it's something original, since the heavy lifting was done by an algorithm and not be me).

Awesome!

So, what's the polarity of the arrows? What's the color key? Does "post length" include the quotes, or just original content? Enquiring minds want to know!

Quick tip for those NP with annoyingly large quote blocks...

Enter in your browser's JS console:

Code: Select all

var bqList = document.getElementsByTagName('blockquote'); for (var i = 0; i < bqList.length; i++) { bqList[i].parentNode.removeChild(bqList[i]); }

Hello again everyone!

This is super cool. I found myself surprisingly quickly (thanks to being placed close to Helper (is he still Pope?) and having a larger than expected dot). I could stare at this thing all day. I think I shall.

Only literally.

Depends on what base you're using.

Assuming interpreting it as 3.41, either base 28 or base 29 would get you pretty close. Neither would actually get you 3.41 for π, though, by any conventional form of rounding or truncating. If you're kinky enough to be into fractional bases, it should be around base 28.49787915. If you're really into the perverted stuff, it could even be base -0.24782593. (You just have to ignore the question of what integer representations mean in a base with absolute value less than 1. Like I said, perverted & twisted.)

(Yes, I'm the kind of guy who calculated in what base 6×9=42 back in high school, long before it became (relatively) common knowledge that it was base 13. Why do you ask?)

This is incredible! Awesome job, Sciscitor. I, too, noticed that Opibole and Helper like to quote each other a lot. Butt buddies.

I like how I'm nestled comfortably right in the center of:
  • BlitzGirl
  • StratPlayer
  • mscha
  • cmyk
  • Latent22

Huh? I thought we had a consensus that they walked along the coastline. That's how they managed to sit by the sea after a long walk, and how they could tell the sea was still rising, and it's also the logical direction to go when you're looking for more rivers that feed into the sea. Do you just mean that they left the castle scene "north"ward before turning to follow the coast? I don't really see anything to contradict that in the map.

I had the same question.
Anyway, we can't know for sure that they're not turning progressively left or right, so they could really have made a complete circle by now...

Wow. That would make a wonderful-looking negative space wedgie for a Star Trek episode. "Is that the entire Borg Collective? No, it's a Time web, composed of pure tachyon energy. They must all be waiting for... something our data analysis can only call, 'it.'"

Yeah, Windows Movie Maker. She got it all edited, and went to publish it, and (eventually) got an error saying it can't save to that location, verify that the source files are all still available, and that the save location is available with enough space.

Files are there, space is there. I think she's going to re-edit it using Windows Movie Maker Live, to see if that works. Feel free to PM me, don't want to be off-topic.

Really, this is the OTT, we are always on topic when we are off topic, plus this sounds interesting and I want to eavesdrop!

I did figure this was the group most likely to have the expertise I need for this topic. Help is appreciated. I could even send/put the files somewhere if that would help.

It's actually pretty cozy right here; and if anything should happen the webbing is pretty thick and makes a nice safety net.

I'm stuck directly between BlitzGirl and lmjb1964.

Thank you SHOT TFDA!

Concerning those who asked for posters: Feel free to use the files for whatever your creativity comes up with. (I don't think they have any other than some technical merit. But maybe it's the same I feel about the creations of others, like BlitzGirls "We love the OTT" or yappobscuits musical rendering of it or Stratplayers songs or buffygirls hats... Those are things I am simply neither creative enough for nor capable of and they do impress me no end.)

Awesome!

So, what's the polarity of the arrows? What's the color key? Does "post length" include the quotes, or just original content? Enquiring minds want to know!

Jose

Arrow polarity: "Tail" quoted "Head".
Color key: Light yellow to dark blue <-> short postings to long postings OR few quotes <-> many quotes
Posting length: Only original content, no quotes.


It's already been said several times over, but ... awesome work!

Is there any relevance to the positions (e.g. average post-page on one axis and first post page on the other)? Or is it just optimized for aesthetics and readability?

In the last 72 newpix some great work was published. Songs, maps - in several variations, .... just wow.

This time it's the full graph. And with full I mean FULL... all the 835 people who have quoted or have been quoted or both and all the 8757 quotes along with all the names, color coded average posting length, size coded posting count per user, width and color coded quote count and (at least for the main quoters) directional hints (also known as arrows)1. <snip>

Maybe because I have Sharkbait on the brain, but here's my reaction:

What is it?
It's so pretty!
I...I'm feeling happy. Which is a big deal, for me.
I want to touch it...oh!

Also: fifth star from the left, and straight on till GONGing!

Awesome work, Sciscitor!
