I have created a word cloud for 9 section/subsections selected at my discretion, using the Topic names only, for the most recent 200 Topics in each of these exercises. Topics get moved around often, so the actual words could change from hour to hour really, but it's not a bad starting point for this analysis.

The idea is to see which are the most trending words in each and see if there are any surprises at all.

1. Bitcoin Discussion

The word Bitcoin rules by far in this section (fortunately), but check out market players: Bill, Gates, Sach, Warren. Government and banks are on the list too ...

2. Development & Technical Discussion

Bitcoin, Network, Blockchain, Lightning, Transaction and Help are at the top.

3. Economics

Bitcoin rules again, followed by cryptocurrency, crypto, blockchain, money and price.


4. Marketplace

Bitcoin, followed by crypto, cryptocurrency, mining, bittrex, bitfinex, market, binance.. and bots!

5. Meta

Merit (no surprise) rules along side account; forum and hacked follow. I didn't see Sir, but maybe Please is replacing it ..

6. Beginners & Help

Beginners is all about bitcoin.. and bounty ..

7. Altcoin Discussion

Etherum/ETH are the main focus in detriment of Bitcoin. Regret is pretty large ..

8. Trading Discussion

Trading is the center. think and strategy are there, but so are fud and dump (I guess the meaning is not what i'm thinking in this case)..


9. Bounty Altcoins

Bounty is the obvious center, followed by Airdrop, Blockchain, Tokens, Campaign, Reward/Rewards (which, if aggregated, would be near the size of Bounty). Icons are a large active to the word cloud too.

Note: The tool I used eliminates numbers (which in this case is good because page numbers would otherwise show up in the word cloud) and dollar signs  amongst others, so $ is not shown..

what surprised me most is that the word scam is not used more often. i thought that complaints about being scamed are more frequent. or scam accusations. or false scam accusations.

It kind of crops up in the Beginners & Help Word Cloud (near the bottom) and in the Altcoin Discussion (north west of Ethereum), but in a lesser font size since other words are repeated with a higher frequency. It also present in other sections subjects too, but not frequently enough to be drawn.

Well, it is good to see that the Bitcoin forum still has Bitcoin as the main topic.
When I took the first look to your thread I was expecting "Merit" and "Scam" as the most used words, due to the rising of scamming accusations regarding merit, as it is happening at least on the meta board. I'm glad to see "Bitcoin" is still the center of the matter in here, as well as "Ethereum" in the Altcoin Section, instead of "Bounty", "ICO" or "Airdrop".

Nevertheless, the meta activity is still somehow concerning, for maybe the correct principal subject should be "Forum", as it probably used to be.
Once more, thanks for your work, great, as usual.

Hmm, pretty interesting..
Segwit missing (or I'm missing it) from Bitcoin Discussion, guess nobody cares discussing it
Philippines and China the top countries in Economics

Edit.

Another interesting thing to do would be to do the same as in the OP but going in deeper: not just Subject name as I have done, but going in to the actual threads and getting their content too. That, from outside the forum software, is too cumbersome to do too, but conceptually interesting.

Oh, just realized this is only for the topic titles, I though first it is for the content of the last 200 topics.
That one would be interesting....

@OP: could you please provide the figures too. not just the pictures.

Danke.. Unfortunately, the software I used is very simple and only gives me the actual word count if I go and click word by word .. I'd take ages with this tool to get a word count....

What I really had in mind was doing something similar but based on social network traffic such as twitter, facebook and so on, just to see what could be retrieved in relation to Bitcointalk. The idea was to treat the forum as a brand and see what the associated word cloud looked like. This is often done in marketing, along with obtaining the sentiment, temperature and tone of the related flowing messages for example.
Alas, what I found around for free didn't convince me, and it was rather partial and thus non-representative. These kind of studies can be performed by social media agencies, but I lack direct access to the tools.

Another interesting thing to do would be to do the same as in the OP but going in deeper: not just Subject name as I have done, but going in to the actual threads and getting their content too. That, from outside the forum software, is too cumbersome to do too, but conceptually interesting.

Yes, It would be great to actually go into the threads, but for now topic titles is the deepest we can go without better access to forum content data.
The idea was to create these word clouds for fun, and see if any weird stuff cropped up on the subjects themselves.

Note: Added bounties..

Interesting work, but I'd filter out some of the common words which are ambiguous or meaningless without more context like: more, again, never, just, world, take, only, now, etc...

Honestly, upon further consideration I don't know that much can be inferred even from seemingly unambiguous words like, "recommend," as someone could either be recommending for or against a course of action.

To be somewhat more constructive rather than just point out crap I don't like - because who likes a Debbie Downer, right? - I would filter on just coin names for the altcoin sections as that would show relative interest levels and actually be quite useful as a gauge of sentiment/popularity for various coins.

Sure, what you say makes sense. Bare in mind that the tool I used is extremely simple and going only into subject names is not that profound.Whole threads should give us better underlying view into favoured concepts/terms. What this does open up is an interesting possibility to perform these kind of analysis for anyone with access to better tools and a larger master of them applying content/context based filters to group or exclude terms and so forth.

Even more interesting would be to do stuff such as what I wrote on my reply to vlom a few posts above, with social network analysis of Bitcointalk as a brand. That is out of my personal scope though.

I have created a word cloud for 9 section/subsections selected at my discretion, using the Topic names only, for the most recent 200 Topics in each of these exercises. Topics get moved around often, so the actual words could change from hour to hour really, but it's not a bad starting point for this analysis.
Good work. But it is not convenient to look at these images representing clouds. You better to post the most frequently used words as a text in some order. And as it mentioned above, the common words and particles that not concerned to the crypto world should be omitted.

And I am not surprised that the one of the most frequently used word in the current section is "merit". Smiley

I figure they were not yesterday night's trending topics ... (the graphics are based on last 200 topic headers at time of editing).

Well, those pics once again show how bad is the Economics section. The most popular keywords mostly consist of the common things that could be also popular in other sections. I see  a strong lack of any kind of "intellectual" economic discussion there while people are trying to spam this section mostly with the crypto shit.

what a pointless thread, op just fishing for merit.

Your post is amplifying hate for innovative work. Again, if you are creative then show it because users will appreciate it too by either giving some merit or thumbs up. But if you do a shit stunt,  Grin.....I trust the users that you must surely get a spank on the ass

Nice Job! It give indeed a good overview of the different part of the forum.
As stated before, filtering of common words (even if this is manual filtering) would be great in order to be more accurate.
But again, congrats for your job!

I was hoping to construct a reply based on the words used in this section, but my creativity isn't good enough. Quite enjoy these statistics that you keep releasing though. The good thing about these word clouds is that I would expect most of these words to consist in their given sections. I guess that it shows that most of the topics/threads in each section are at least on topic somewhat.

I'm surprised there is no mention of prostitution, alia and cute little slaves. <insert lol here>.

haha that's why I'd like to see one made for politics and society.  Grin

Well not that much. Economics is a wide term and pretty much everything is on topic there. Tho, I'm surprised with that "Philippines" and that the words like "end" or "die" aren't a little more involved, since people there tend to create lots of "is bitcoin dead" topics. Even more now when the price's lower. Grin

Need some spare btc for a new PC that can at least run Adobe Dreamweaver.
