Title: Stack's Merit Tracker | Visualize anyone's merit data in the form of a graph!
Post by: StackGambler on March 16, 2019, 01:28:22 PM
I've always been curious about a single user's merit trends over time. I had some spare time so I whipped up a bit of code that scrapes users' merit page and formats the data into a graph, so you can see people's historical merit data in an easy-to-understand form.

  • Username is case sensitive.
  • I may put this up on a dedicated server if there's enough interest.

Remember to play with the buttons to zoom out!

Check your own merit graph here:

Hope this helps someone! Thanks for reading  ;D

It looks great!

I tested it and it's shows fine data of user and accurately too.

Here is my link:
http://40.117.58.58:8000/?username=hacker1001101001


I would suggest to add usernames to the merit dots, like from which user the merit is received it would make it better for the user's to track around.

Ah, that's a very interesting idea. Might add it when I reach home if it's not too time-consuming. Thanks for the feedback and suggestion!

It seems developing a merit data/analytics/stats/graph/tracker (whatever you name it) became a trend in meta to gain merit for oneself.

This is the skill I don't have it seems...  :(  :'(



edit: not discouraging anyone...  :)

Nice work by the way !

And yeb as hacker1001101001 said would be nice to have some infos on the dots !

- Username
- How much merit you got
- Maybe the link to the post you got it

Also it would be interesting if you can do that with the given Merits too !
So you can watch the 2 Graph. for received and sended Merits !

I mean, it's just something I wish existed, so I made it myself. I saw LoyceV's post (from where I got the idea, thanks LoyceV) and thought that there should be some sort of automated website to create the graph for you in real-time instead of waiting for a data dump and someone to manually process the information.

You could also go to the Merit Dashboard (https://public.tableau.com/profile/ddmrddmr#!/vizhome/BitcointalkMeritDashboard/GlobalSummary), go to the last tabs ("Received Merit Chart" or "Sent Merit Chart") and get them instantly with all TX history

Edit: Do not consider yours a waste of time. There are a couple of alternatives that resolve similar functionality. That enriches the ecosystem to a certain degree, and alternative solutions serve as backup, should one of them fail or stop being updated.

Oh, fuck me. I had no idea this existed. I wasted all my time on that  :'(

Well, thanks for this! It's a very valuable resource I had no idea existed.

Ah, thanks a lot man. That's really cool.

Well, if anything, I hope this method is an easier way to visualize merit. Clean, with no bells and whistles, albeit less information.

You can be banned just because you have posted the same message in reputation too. Keep only 1 thread alive. You said it should be posted in reputation, in that case, you can simply move the thread.

It's more likely one of the topics gets deleted.

My suggestion: lock this one (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5121294), and move it to Archival.
Then move this current thread to Reputation.

The Lock and Move buttons are on the lower left.

It seems I'm unable to move the double-posted thread to Archival. Hopefully a mod can help me out with that. Thanks for your suggestion and help! I've moved this thread to Reputation.

It's pretty easy bud,

1.You need to go to the thread here (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5121294.0)

2.You would see a move topic option at the bottom left of the page. Click on it.

3.It directs you to a selection tab for selecting to which board you want to move the topic to. In your case it's move to - Others> Archival. Just select it from the drop down menu.

4. You can also edit the topic name and add details about where the topic is moved.

Yeah, I know. It won't let me. Maybe because I'm a Newbie, or something...

Nice work there buddy, now I smell another newbie will rank up into Full Member in no time. Eventually, there are so many representations that has been made recently, but still its quite enjoying to see that there are people whose taking these seriously. Hoping to see an infographics about stats.
