Comment stats

Freshness Warning
This blog post is over 16 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current and the links no longer work.

Of the 2514 comments I have across all blogs managed by this install of MT, 1723 contain a URL, but 92 of those only have a URL in the comment body.

And there are currently 126 comments in my database that contain both the letters Q and Z.

"92 of those only have a URL in the comment body" Where are the URLs in all the other comments? Are they just the ones entered in the Website field of the comment form?

Interesting stats. I wish you could get stats like that with Blogger. Does that come as some kind of default output with MT?

Bill: Yes, in the Website field in the comment field. So those 92 comments have nothing in the Website field but entered a URL in the comment body for some reason. Jeramey: To get those stats I generated some reports directly out of the database. Nothing that comes with MT.

Perhaps you could get that kind of information through the 'Wordpress' engine as well?

What's the significance of 126 comments containing both the letters Q & Z? (I'm not being cheeky, I just wondered if there was a point I am missing.)

There aren't many words with the letters Q or Z. So I find it interesting that there are that many comments that contain both letters.

Oh, I guess out of 2514 comments altogether, it didn't seem that odd to me. It's only about 5% of the comments. I guess I would just figure that you have a lot of readers that use words like "quite" a lot... 13% of my blog entries have the word "quite" in them. (And I only have 281 blog entries!) And I imagine there's some more or less common words spelled with a Z. Or maybe it's just because I come from a family of avid Scrabble players - who think of Qs & Zs as coveted letters. haha.

Yes. I'm interested too - where are the URLs in the other comments?

Why Q & Z? Is there that much discussion of queer zebras? You are laughing I hope, I'm just being silly. But I am perplexed by QZ, it makes me QweZee. I actually came to this site in regards to the stuipd cellphone tricks. I write about telecom stuff for consummers, to help you to work with your telecom and television companies better. Email me if you have specific questions.

It's made me interest too. Why Q & Z? Have you count for X letter? It might be some people around the world using weird language.

"1723 URL" , "92 URL in the comment body" My personal explanation is that people like to chat. Often, instead of having a 'heavy' exchange of data and consistent information (URL lists), people like just to discuss 'softly' with short sentences. Like us now.
