More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:

Are you sure you want to remove your recommendation? You can only recommend a diary once, so you will not be able to re-recommend it afterwards.
Rescue this diary, and add a note:

  •  What does viewed by 181 mean in this sentence? (7+ / 0-)
    Yesterday 250 Kogs published 324 posts of which 307 were recommended at least once by a cadre of 2738 recommending readers and viewed by 181; 191 posts were recommended by 10 or more
    Is this average number of views for these posts?

    Or, the minimum?

    Or, all of these 307 posts were viewed by the same 181 people?  Or, a minimum of 181 people?

    I've been under the impression that our view counter is broken, so how do we know this?

    Do we know what the total number of page views per day of the site is, has been?  

    One new metric, I would find to be interesting is how many readers are actively reading at any one time.  We could eliminate anyone who hasn't turned to page in 10 minutes so as not to miscount those who just left their computers on, but are not reading.

    I read that the view columns are going to be taken off since they are broken.  Shouldn't we do the same with the comment rating and Mojo ranking functions which haven't worked in over a year?  Under the people function, in the Mojo selection my Mojo has been locked under someone who has not logged in for five years, despite me making over 400 posts, 20,000 new recs, and 16,000 comment since that time,  Has anyone made any explanations of this, or announced plans I missed?

    We should label it as dysfunctional, or take it down, as it is spreading misinformation now.

    •  I am reviewing the viewer views (6+ / 0-)

      ha!

      Did I ever tell you about the time that I subscribed to one of the early experiments in social web sites, one that continued to need frequent updates?

      They were a bit under the gun to make the thing work, it would seem, and eventually had trouble keeping thinkgs straight.

      Someone wishing to use their software needed to, of course, install it.  In order to do so a special application, named, reasonably, the "Installer" needed to be downloaded.

      It was at this point they lost their mind, as they then produced a second necessary download,  required to ... you guessed it, install the "Installer".  And they named it "The Install Installer".

      At this point the directions to get going read something like "First, install the 'Install installer', after which use the Installer to install the installation."

      Which was when I began to rend my garments and howl like a banshee, babbling about the fall of civilization and the loss of literacy amongst the technorati.

      So anyway, I'll be reviewing the viewer views for a while.  wish me luck.

      Back to your questions, quickly, in this sentence.

      Yesterday 250 Kogs published 324 posts of which 307 were recommended at least once by a cadre of 2738 recommending readers and viewed by 181; 191 posts were recommended by 10 or more
      There were 307 posts that were recommended at least once.  There were 2378 people who recommended at least one diary.  There were 181 people who viewed at least one diary (this is obviously broken --- should have noticed earlier).

      There are no averages involved in any of these numbers, they are counts based on data retrieved from dkos database.  Apparently something has changed to make the views ... questionable.

      I have absolutely nothing to do with mojo rankings and comment ratings that show up in peoples profiles, so probably best to take those questions elsewhere.

      Thanks.

        originally, but the number is wrong, since the number of people viewing at least one diary would have to larger than the number 2738 who rec's at least one, even if every one who viewed something rec'd something.  But, we know the rec'cers are but a fraction of the viewers.

        Within the last two days, someone with a name sounding like ankgarden, or maybe ankgarten announced the the view counter has been broken and will be removed, so you might want to remove it from your reports, as well.

        Also, I've learned that someone named elffing, (I think, sp?) is on the technical team, so I've been meaning to write about the comment rating and Mojo rank counters being broken, even though I've filed technical reports before.  One of your other commenters has a link to a support section I've never seen before, which is encouraging.

        Thanks for you great work, and responsiveness, as well, jotter.

    •  Bad news (5+ / 0-)

      It seems the views data has been turned off.

      There is a support thread describing the decision.

      I kept track of views before there was an official table ... maybe I can make that work again.

      No promises.

      I'll keep the "empty" views numbers in case, as advertised in the support thread mentioned above, the views return.

        was reporting to you some other commenter "below" that was linking to a support section -- this mysterious commenter turns out to be you.

        Sheesh, and I was thinking about changing my UID to Sherlock HolmesDog  because of my great powers of observation. ... Maybe I should hold off on this?

        Oh, where ever it was that folks were discussing the demise of the page counter someone suggested that by including a photobucket photo in ones post, one could get a count of the links back to that.

        Which is curious because I assumed that once we referenced them here, are photos would be installed in some kind of internal archive, to protect the archives from being wiped out by the future possible loss of one of these external photo databases.

        But, it now occurs to me that it might be possible to put an invisible link in posts to some external counter to give us view counts.

        What is puzzling is that I figured page counts are so central to advertising rates, external valuations of the site, and part of so many external rankings of the influence and activity of so many different blog sites that Daily Kos would have view counters everywhere.  

        And, for a site that's bread and butter is built around volunteer writers, of both posts, and comments, I would think we'd have counters of comment given, received, tips given and received, and counters counting counters.  lol

        Like Las Vegas has cameras watching the people watching the TVs watching the cameras of the tables, and people in the rooms watching those people.

  •  I'm finally back on line after Broadband (6+ / 0-)

    ceased reaching my location 2 weeks ago. 10 days ago I informed T Mobile the degradation of their service meant they weren't delivering the promised level of service, and that didn't hold up their end of the contract. T Mobile is still demanding $140 for ending their sub dial-up level of service that became a non-existent level of service and their nightmarish customer (dis)service department 2 months early.

    T Mobile doesn't care they don't have to.
