This is a new “year in review” plugin we’re testing! Let us know what you think of it; I can see a few minor tweaks I’d like already.

:partying_face:


#3

Wait, the most popular thing I ever did was say I was taking off for a couple of months?


#4

Well, if nothing else, I feel better about the amount of time I spend on BB? :yum:

And it’s genuinely nice to see hard data that I’ve improved my giving of Likes.

To quote myself in 2016, Absence makes the threads grow longer.

Captain obvious moment here: one thing you might already have thought of, but the topics created is always going to skew to the staff contributors. Which is fine if that’s what you’re going for, but just something I noticed.


#5

Except for the glaring omission of Discourse’s Top Dev for 2018, looks good to me. I obviously spent a lot of time here last year.

As Red Skelton said at Harry Cohn’s funeral, “give the public what they want and they’ll turn out for it.”

[I keed, I keed…]


#6

It’s good to see that i do indeed talk too much, enough to make some kind of list. I definitely think its rather interesting having a review of random points of data from the BBS though. There should definitely be a top 5 people using the word Mօist


#7

■■■■■ Slacks – wait, you’ve used trickery to get that through! Curse you! :mage:‍♂


#8


#9

Oh, and also! Big thanks to @scossar who worked hard to bring this plugin to fruition for the new year! :clap:


#10

Can we get a shout out to 2018’s most popular banana themed post? I need to know.


#11

I like to joke that I give out likes like a drunk sailor on shore leave… but damn near twice that of the person below me.
Y’all rock though so they are well earned.


#12

We’ll just look at it.


#13

If I had a car, I’d consider using a version of this as a bumper sticker.

Most visits seems superfluous, other than that it looks good.


#17

It’s slurping all the way down.
