You can quantify practically anything. · 3:55pm Aug 19th, 2015

Even the degree to which senpai has noticed you.

By the way, I'm not really trying to make some sort of statement about whether or not this is a good idea, as it's not really applicable to me (as of this posting there's only about 60 or FIMFiction users who could have an effect my result). I just find the idea itself interesting, that's all.

Statistics #2: The impact of Equestria Girls · 1:30pm Aug 14th, 2016

I finally got the time and inclination to dig into the data of the Great Fimfiction Archive.

One of the side effects is that I rewrote the normalizer that chews the thick stack of EPUBs and produces a database of easy to search text, and now this script runs on all the cores of my laptop and serves as a space heater, chewing the entire archive down in about an hour. Which is a great improvement from six hours I started with and made it a lot easier to refine it.

Statistics #3: The Seven Elements of Harmony · 1:36pm Apr 19th, 2017

It started with cocktails.

To be specific, the infamous Masked Ferret publicized the result of the collaboration with Horizon regarding the names and blurbs for mixed drinks at Babscon.

Which I can’t go to, so you can imagine my annoyance.

Fortunately, the Ferret provided me with an easy outlet for vengeance. The post ends with this phrase:

Some statistics on fimfiction story titles · 8:28pm Apr 26th, 2016

Ever since I read Bad Horse's blog posts on some fimfiction.net statistics I wanted to do some analysis myself. So when I noticed that I would reach five million read words here very soon, I thought it was the perfect occasion to finally do it and write a first blog post.

Let's look at some statistics about story titles today.

[Homology] Statistical Miracle · 4:36am February 17th

I have achieved a statistical miracle.

20 votes total, yet only 19 views on the first chapter. This is >100% engagement! And the 0.4 like/view rate is by far the best I've ever had!

(Yes, at low viewcounts in the first few hours after publish, statistical anomalies abound, I know! It's just funny.)

Update:
28 total votes / 24 views! 116% response rate and climbing.

There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics. I’m about to engage in the third one.

That is, I remembered about the Great FimFiction Dump and decided to finally do something interesting with it.

What makes stories popular on fimfiction? · 10:15pm Feb 15th, 2018

Or more accurately: What factors except writing quality make stories popular?

To answer this question, I extracted the metadata from all published stories on fimfiction.net in July 2016. This includes number of views, likes, dislikes and comments, tagged characters and genres, content rating (everyone, teen, mature), status (complete, incomplete, on hiatus, cancelled), date of publishing and last modification, and whether there is a story image.

Perfection? (Also a little self-indulgence) · 9:11pm Aug 18th, 2016


So in a little under a week, Letters from an Irradiated Princess has amassed 162 likes, and not a single dislike. (Though I imagine some contrarian will go downvote the story just as a matter of principle by now). This has driven it to become one of my post popular (or at least top ranking) stories, much to my surprise.

The big one-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh! · 11:27pm Jul 18th, 2016

I've been waiting for this to happen for a few weeks now, but here it is:

I'm pretty sure (though I stand to be corrected) that Fimfiction has more stories than any other single-fandom fic archive. It's certainly ahead of HarryPotterFanfiction.com, which is somewhere in the 80s thousands.

What the Heck are Ratings? · 11:02pm Jun 7th, 2015

Hello!

Simple question. I looked on my stats page, and apparently there's this new stat called ratings. I'm thinking it has some correlation to the number of likes/dislikes you have on a story, but that's just that: a guess. Any answers? Anybody?

~trombrony98

P.S. I'm also trying out the tag thing here, though I can't fancy why anyone would actually want to search a blog post.

Oh, goodness. Never has a single project used so completely nearly every single talent I have: Illustrator, Photoshop, writing, reading, excel, VBA, Java, not to mention the hours spent watching After Effects tutorials. But it is done!

Please check out that video and especially all the spreadsheets, they're really fun to play around it.

UK of Equestria's view on Season Six, part one · 3:40pm Jun 24th, 2016

Over on the UK of Equestria forums, we asked people to rank the pre-hiatus Season Six episodes from 1-11 (counting the premiere as one). We had 14 responses, not bad for a half-season, and below you can see the mean ranking table. Any episode with an average rating of second or above gets five stars. Then down to fourth, four; down to sixth, three; down to eighth, two; and any episode which scored an overall ranking below eighth is lumbered with a one-star rating.

Season 8 episodes: How I ranked them · 11:09pm Nov 2nd, 2018

Here's the list I produced for the usual end-of-season vote on UK of Equestria. The rules there are that double episodes count as one, and that no ties are permitted. The order might change around a little bit in the future, once things have had more of a chance to sink in, but here's my current thinking:

1. What Lies Beneath
2. Surf and/or Turf
3. On the Road to Friendship
4. School Raze (finale)
5. The Hearth's Warming Club
6. The Washouts
7. Horse Play
8. The Mean 6
