What do your numbers say about you?

Someone pointed out (thanks for that @thesids) how our numbers come about. Go look at yourself, it's the addition of your discussions, responses, and comments. I have started 64 (now 65) discussions. I have commented on things over 1,600 times () and I have responded to comments over a thousand times. Now I am not mentioning these to brag, we can all glance over these things. No, I mention this because this is a good indication of how I work on mylot. I read your stuff first like and comment, stop off to read one thing at least by someone I don't follow, then I reply to notifications. My stats back this up. They also tell me I like to talk, to everyone. What do your stats say about you?

Mine says that I jump into others' discussions more than I write my own.

You are a very talkative person, I have to work at it a bit. I am not a natural talker. But I do enjoy this site.

sometimes it's easier to ask someone a question on what they said, less focus on you!

Aw that is so sweet of you to put me on the discussion. My Stats say I am too fragile when it comes to initiating discussions. I have only 191 on my stats and have been around here for about 5+ years. I can start a discussion almost everyday but I know, I cannot be available for replying back to all who take their time out to be on my discussions. This is a major factor that I have not too many discussions. So yes, at times the Stats can be wrongly interpreted. But yes, I am more interactive on other's discussions. Maybe I am a good listener too.

that's one of the reasons I limit my posts to 1-2 a day max, I can keep up with those discussions for the most part.

@Jessicalynnt People like you who comment back and interact on their discussions is what I like, and so does the community. After all, MyLot is a site to discuss

I could post way more than I do, but wanted to put more focus in the community and less on me, so I limit myself to 1 or 2 a day max

Almost the same I do think. I don't make a point to read one by someone I don't follow, but it is a good idea that you have there.

I don't want to be stuck with a rut of reading (not that ya'll are boring, since you are not), but more so feel like it's good for me to get out and reach out to someone else. I try and find one with few comments, and engage someone other than my normal crowd. I actually think a few have followed me back and found ya'll which is cool too!

@Jessicalynnt Yes, I joined the 17th of August and I only started interacting in September, I was surprised. I know that I spend too much time at my computer.

@LadyDuck yeah me too, but.... it's where I get most of my talking to people time. I don't want to sound all lame, but I don't have friends who live nearby, everyone that I am friends with is hours away, so I get lonely. this helps

@Jessicalynnt it is like the song from the Brownies, make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other gold.

harder to gauge with members who were here for the years before the mylot relaunch as their stats include activity from yesteryear too. Mine do show I am quite prolific here which is accurate.

I wish you could see a better breakdown, like over all, and past year, and past month.

@Jessicalynnt it would be good if it showed at a glance statistical averages, i.e., number of visits, posts to comments ratios, date of last visit, etc.

My numbers say that I am a total newbie here and am not sure what I am doing. In real life I have been around for a long time but still don't know what I am doing. Best wishes, Alan.

I tend to look at the numbers when I'm deciding who to follow. I avoid those who have almost as many discussions as responses and several times more comments - usually on their own posts. Sadly, there are some folks here who only seem to care about their own discussions. Your numbers are great, by the way.

Mine show that I start very few discussions (not even 250 since 2006) but I respond to and comment on many, many more (nearly 15,000 responses and over 12,000 comments). My name has been mentioned 1,400 times and my posts have 21,300 'likes'. I wonder whether 0.72 likes per post is high or low or average.

do the likes all jumble together, likes on posts and on comments too? And those are some impressive numbers!

@Jessicalynnt Yes, the 'Likes' figure is just a total of all the 'likes' you've received. To get the "Likes per post" figure I just divided the 'Likes' by the total in brackets by my name (which should be the sum of Discussions, Responses and Comments, though I didn't check that). It's actually lower than yours and that of several other people, which doesn't surprise me because I feel that the 'like' button is being used MUCH more than it used to be in the old version. My numbers are high because I've been here since October 2006 - (9 years on 25th of this month, I think).

@owlwings I have more likes than I do the others though, 3.7k likes and my total is in the 2.5 range, maybe what I like is in there too?
