I'm just curious if there is such a statistic available anywhere?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
If you know the query, you could use the Query site
You could sum the number of upvotes and group that by hour. That would give a rough image of the reputation given.
A good statistic would then create a different list of if it's a question or an answer being upvoted and multiply the number by the reputation it gives, and then look at the downvotes and reduce the number by those results.
Here's a naive query. You could take those results and plot them.
I ran it and charted it for you, just if you were curious.
