Ello! I've been sick for a few days, and I don't have any mood to do any homework or translate. Like... I have a mountain of analytical work to do... But I really don't want to look at numbers right now... so... I decided to shove them all aside and work on something fun! YES! NUF ANALYTICS! ... Eh? Still analytics? Uhh... Well, whatever! In any case, today's target of analysis is the General Chat Forum! Up to the point of data collection for this analysis (About 5 hours prior to the creation of this thread?), we have a total of: - 13,210 threads - 568,515 posts - 19,126,317 views Most threads have a mean of about 42 replies each, and the distribution of the replies on each post can be seen in the following distribution plot: Fufu, as time passes, the number of users on NUF will increase, but does that equate to a more lively General Chat Forum? To find out, I plot a Time-Series Graph to visualize Number of Threads Created Per Week! Ah!? We can see that compared to 2016 and 2017, the number of threads created on NUF have been steadily decreasing! Ehh!! "But Scrya, you can't just look at thread counts! There might be more interactions within the threads themselves!" Fumu fumu, true true. I have the same thought, my dear watson! So I decided to look at the Number of Replies/Posts Created Per Week next! To my dismay, it shows about the exact same trend as the previous chart! Oh no! We must do something! Yes, that's it! We need to look at the titles! After all, appealing titles will draw people into the threads! So, I decided to create a wordcloud to find out what are the popular words used in all of the threads so far... Of course, I removed stopwords (e.g. the, a, is) as they do not bring value to the analysis! Oh, we have a good variety of words used for thread titles here! The larger the words, the more the words are frequently used in titles! Fumu fumu, it seems most thread titles come with 'help', 'novel', 'song',', etc... But does including these words guarantee more interactions? I don't think so... The mean number of replies for each of the threads with the popular words: help: 22.948 novel: 25.071 song: 22.361 ... These are all below the overall mean number of replies for each thread! Hmm... WAIT! WHAT DO I SEE HERE!? @Tony ! Yes, Tony has always been a hot topic on General Chat! Maybe...? !! Threads with Tony in the titles have a mean number of 77.818 replies! That's way above the general mean of 42! So we should create more threads about Tony then! But... how? Let's draw inspiration from previous threads centered around Tony... Ohho! I see! Clickbait... scandal... das... parth... tease... fumu fumu... I see I see! In order to create more lively threads, we just have to come up with more scandals that Tony's involved in! Yes, that's it! So everyone, you know what to do! For the future of NUF General Chat, we must put Tony in the limelight! Create more scandals! Create more clickbaits! Let's revive NUF together! TLDR: Create more Tony threads. Also, I totally did not write up such a long post and did so much analysis just to make people create more shitposts about Tony. Believe me.
