Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Can we get a total number of vote casted on stackoverflow for each day that the site existed?

I want to see some analysis done to attempt to answer questions like:

  • (Inflation/deflation) Is a vote now worth more than a vote then?
  • (Weekly fluctuation) Are significantly less votes cast on weekends?

We're geeks. We like charts and statistics. Let's do it!


Ideally the votes should be divided into the 4 obvious categories, QUp, QDown, AUp, ADown. Then we can analyze things like:

  • Does the introduction of {Electorate} shift the ratio of QTotal and ATotal?
    • Is that the intent? Is there a desired balance by design?
  • What about the ratio of UpTotal and DownTotal?
  • etc

Too bad that statoverflow.com/sandbox and stackql.net are dead. You'll have to install a DB and play with the data yourself, assuming you know a bit SQL. – BalusC May 1 '10 at 5:11

We need someone to sponsor an OData Trilogy dump site.

This is something I talked about with Scott Hanselman, and he expressed interest in hosting it on Azure with Microsoft's support.. would be an ideal case!
