[personal profile] foxfirefey posting in [community profile] memewidth

So, this is my offering to [community profile] three_weeks_for_dw: I am making graphs of participant circles for posts and comments to communities! (And I hope to continue making more kinds of fun graphs you can get by certain activities.) They can be explained thusly:

  • The graph consists of nodes (the circles with the journals names on them) and edges (the lines between the nodes).
  • A line between two nodes means that those two users have a mutual relationship. That means they subscribe to each other, give each other access, or both.
  • The size of the node indicates how many mutual relationships that user has in total--the more, the bigger the node.
  • The color of the node indicates how many relative mutual relationships that user has with you--the darker the red, the more connections you two share.
  • Note that you don't show up in the graphs, since you are connected to everybody
  • If you have a relationship with a user but they don't have any relationships with anybody else you're connected to, they don't show up either (I call them "singlets").

Here is my entire graph:

Here is a close up on that big clique (that's a group of users where everyone is connected to everyone else!) of 12 I have:

You can get a network graph if the account you're requesting if with that account you have made, since April 26th or later:

  • Three posts to three communities.
  • Comments to six different posts in at least three different communities.

For each additional post or 3 comments you make to a community, you can choose one of the bonus add ons:

  • A list of all of the singlets--people who don't have any mutual relationships with other people in your circle
  • A graph that highlights connections between people in your biggest clique and a list of your biggest clique(s)
  • For you geeks, a dot file you can play around with in GraphViz.

Put the links to the posts or comments in your request, and follow the rules of the communities you are posting to!
Unfortunately, the posts and comments will need to be public ones, so I can see them and verify. By default, I will put your graph(s) up on my web hosting and link you to it, so you can point to it in your journal easily (although it really is best if you host it for yourself, just in case), but if you'd prefer me to email it to you, just let me know.

If you don't know how to find communities you're interested in, feel free to make a comment here asking me for possible recommendations. I or others passing by will try to find some for you--though I'll note that I'm not in fandom, so my experience will be limited in that area.

Graphs!

Awesome! And I can see me!

These are a few links from the past days, but since I want all the extras, I'll need to add to it in the next few days:

Heh, it won't make much of a difference for me - I used to try and post to two comms before breakfast and have already left out about 5 or 6 comments.

I love the idea of doing something for people who are active in communities, by the way! And did I mention the SHINY GRAPHS?!?

I wish to marry your brain! :) We could have awesome stats/graphs children, I think.

And don't forget how users in your circle are connected to you by communities. I'd find that interesting, though maybe that's more something for a table than for a graph...

Since you have now teased me beyond belief and I want to see my graph sooner rather than later:

I think that should qualify me for my graph + all extras?

Hmmm, okay, so the second pic is of the biggest clique, which is "a group of users where everyone is connected to everyone else". However, I am a bit unsure of who is a part of that group from the clique. It looks like it should be the ones with the red edges, however, I know that I am not (currently) connected to [personal profile] sarah and [personal profile] rho - there are also no edges between us. But that's also more than 12 people, so I am probably not included in the clique :)

So pretty and shiny and GRAPHY! Thank you!

And I have never done anything with a dot file, so I don't even yet know what I'll do with it :)

kerravonsen: animated sequence of geeks with the word "geek" around them (geek-anim)
From: [personal profile] kerravonsen
The program you need in order to deal with a dot file is Graphviz. It is cool!
Why?

1. One can specify an entire pretty vector-graph in a text file.
1a. The two main wikis that I use, PmWiki and IkiWiki have plugins for graphviz, which means one can add graphs to web-pages just by editing them.

2. One can write scripts to generate dot files for you (as firefoxy has already demonstrated)
2a. I wrote a script to help me sort out assignments for the Multi-Fandom Lyric Wheel ficathon by giving me a graph which showed the fandom match-ups between fandoms that participants could write and the ones that recipients wanted to receive. It made it a lot easier.

Imagine if there was some way of combining Planarity with TVTropes.

Nothing, ever done, ever again.

Two comments on the [community profile] batchlunch post, one on the [community profile] hockey one. One on [community profile] bicycles. Two on [community profile] insomnia.

Will update if I manage another community post! I was thinking about going through and tagging all the untagged posts on [community profile] getting_started, though - would that count for anything? :)
