    Everyone loves graphs

    Here is a shiny graph of votes and coolness
    coolness+votes graph
    It generates itself from the current data so it will be up to date.
    It will actually work for some previous competitions too.

      Cool :-) . nice work.

      So I guess going up on the Y-Axis is good, right? Where is there current time on the X-Axis? I guess “now” is to the left. It would be quite embarassing otherwise.

        I guess I should have been a bit clearer in the description and actually labelled the axes.
        The X-Axis is a sorted list of all the entries, and the Y-axis is the number of votes / coolness.
        It is actually two separate graphs jammed together.

      Yup. Now I get it :-)

      Interesting, but I am not sure if I understand it…
      Actually, it reminded me of this :P http://www.smbc-comics.com/?id=2167

      Er…seems a bit misleading to overlay two unrelated graphs. Because what it *looks* like is that those with the highest Coolness also get the most votes. Probably better to plot two graphs on separate axes.
