Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

I think it would be cool if we could see the growth of the number of question/amount of activity of various tags as a graph on the stats page.

I also would like to see a graph for the growth of questions of various tags. E.g. right now we there is only a number of "questions tagged [tag]" on the tag page for each tag. It would be nice to have a graph that visualize the number, e.g. a graph for the last six months (one point per month), updated once a week. It would look something like this:

Agreed. Also I'd like to see some sort of an asymptote (?) for the number of questions on the site total. I.e. compare tag [widget] to the number of questions over time for the entire site. – jcollum Jun 26 '11 at 22:12

And also be able to choose to follow several tags only, say I want to compare the PHP tag versus the Phyton tag. We can actually build an external tool for it.
