27th-Apr-2016 09:00 pm - Yearly AO3 stats meme
john_amend_all: (crichtardis)

Memed from [personal profile] lost_spook: List your top ten AO3 works by various metrics.

AO3 have changed their HTML since last year, and I've had to tweak my AO3 stats downloader to compensate. The current version is 2.1. Stats follow )

6th-Oct-2013 08:03 pm - Software update: AO3 Scraper

This is aimed mainly at those, like me, who spend far too much time looking at their statistics on AO3 and trying to work out what they signify.

Back when we had the AO3 Stats meme, there was some talk of doing more analysis on the figures than AO3's simple sorting options could handle. For example, sorting works by (kudos ÷ hits) to get a 'proportion of satisfied readers' figure. And I wrote a clunky command-line utility to do that.

I've now rewritten that utility so that it's got a proper user interface, doesn't need to be compiled at the command line, and should run on anything with a Java runtime. It can be downloaded here.

(The 'age' figure is deceptive for a multi-part work with parts posted over time, because AO3 reports the date the most recent part was posted. That's why Ac Velut in Somnis appears to have got 150 hits in only two days.)
