I suppose that depends on your definition of "drama." I was under the impression "drama" was unsubstantiated whining about unfairness. Data like this could provide substantiation one way or another, no? It'd lessen the "drama" by turning it into "slander" and/or "legitimate gripes."
If I was looking to cause shit i'd have included things like # of videos in "No Effects" that actually had effects in them, # of videos in "Best Parody" that aren't parodies, # of people in Most Helpful that don't even post here, etc. etc.
I'm in this for the data though. Hell... I keep month to month spreadsheets on my bandwidth usage going back to my join date cross-referenced with my donation totals. Maybe i'm just weird though.
a surprising lack of stats for a stats thread
Well... Needing access to the database to make queries like this is kinda a step 1 to getting the metrics. I'm sure some things can be counted now and could have been counted before in semis. Not the most interesting ones though.
EDIT - I'm doing a counting on the finalists now... will update first post with numbers when i'm done.
