User talk:Short Circuit/Stats
Thanks for the welcome.
I was wondering if there were any analytics available on the different languages and tasks. How many tasks are completed for each language? For a given task, how many languages implement it (and how many ignore it)?
Of course any individual question can be answered with a bit of counting, but to see larger trends isn't so easy. For example: of the dozen or so languages where I could conceivably write a solution, which are most underrepresented? Similarly, which tasks seem important yet aren't widely solved?
I toyed with the idea of writing a screen-scraping bot, or even writing a task to write such a bot, but I thought I'd ask here first.

- Actually, it looks like that is mostly covered by Rosetta Code/Count examples and Rosetta Code/Find unimplemented tasks. Maybe add extra credit for a visualization? CRGreathouse 04:59, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
