We're planning to release our first project report soon, which will cover the completed hetnet. We'd like to assess the amount of user contribution and content creation the Thinklab venue has facilitated thus far. With the new project export feature, we can now perform custom analytics.
Using today's export, I calculated some basic stats (notebook). The 67 discussions in our project (comments + notes) contain:
403 comments and 133 notes containing 662,501 characters
contributions from 40 users who have written a comment or note
248 unique DOI references to 39 different DOI registrants
@alizee is creating a visualization of user contribution over time, so stay tuned.
We include in the graph only the 33 users that have written more than 500 characters, highlighting the 8 top contributors with more than 5 thousands.
Antoine Lizee: CHANGELOG: - better counting of total number (relied on the cumulative density before)
We also created the stream chart that shows instantaneous instead of cumulative contribution over time. I removed the main project owner, @dhimmel, to highlight the patterns outside of his massive contribution. These counts are not transformed.
The figure caption from our forthcoming project report is:
This figure shows Project Rephetio contributions by user over time. Each band represented the cumulative contribution of a Thinklab user to discussions in the Rephetio project. Users are ordered by date of first contribution. Users who contributed over 4,000 characters are named. The square root transformation of characters written per user accentuates the activity of new contributors, thereby emphasizing collaboration and diverse input.
