I forgot to start counting

When I wrote my data analysis piece (click link to read) yesterday, I claimed that I would start today by keeping a tally of the number of comments I write on others' articles. I want to try to figure out just how many (relative) coins come from other's who support me by reading, and how many come from my efforts to support others in their journey here on the site.

What is it that they say about "best laid plans"? I completely forgot about this. I am not even sure I want to do this. It seems a bit like work.

Still, it is something that I would like to try to analyze. Perhaps, I will start it with my December goals. But that is something that I have not started to think about.

It sounds like a good idea. I am also curious what the best way fro earning coins is. I hope you share what you find if you do do this!

The math seems kind of easy... We get two coins for each unique view to each post. Count up the number of heads on your posts. Times two... Subtract this number from your total coins, and that gives you the answer as we get one coin per comment left behind on another person's post.

Wow, truly you had a statistics of your comments you wrote? In my case, I do not have time to check how many comments I wrote for all of the members. I am just writing without counting.

I find I tend to remeber my plans just before bedtime!

VanMan That's great idea, but when did the views come in? I look at a daily result, not per article.

As well, there are posts that show only 1 View, that already have 2 comments. There goes the theory! emoticon :winking:

You do what you want to do. I will just continue to read, comment and write.

Sometimes, it's east to forget things. It does seem like a good idea, and see what your stats are and such.

That sounds like a good time to do it. Hop you remember then if you decide to do it

I have often wondered the same thing but am too lazy to do any kind of analysis.
