Channel activity

Interpretation notes:

  • Total messages: Fairly obvious. Keep in mind that this doesn't consider length or depth of messages, only number.
  • Messages/user
    • Plot shows average (arithmetic mean) only.
    • We can get an idea of the spread by looking at the min, 25%, median, 75% and max values. In between each one (e.g. between min and 25%) is 1/4 of the total active users.
  • Active users
    • 'Total' counts the number of users who said at least one message in the channel.
    • Top 80% answers the question: how many of the top users for that channel account for 80% of the messages in that channel?" (The top 80%/total column gives the percentage.) The closer this is to 80% of the total active users, the more evenly different users contribute. The smaller this number is compared to the total, the more the channel is dominated by a specific group with few occasional users dropping in and out.

Channel activity of the top 80% globally

This section shows the same channel activity results, but limited only to the list of top users who, server-wide, contribute 80% of all messages on the server. In other words, this shows where our most active users spend their time.

This is distinct from the top 80% shown in the previous section, which is calculated on a channel-by-channel basis.
