Graphs of BlogNomic history
From BlogNomic Wiki
Josh prepared some graphs of BlogNomic's dynasty lengths, in April 2011, making the raw spreadsheet data available here (http://blognomic.com/?URL=https%3A%2F%2Fspreadsheets.google.com%2Fccc%3Fkey%3D0AjIAbe-9Bvk3dEpKZWlSbG51UmFWdldjdTRRdml4eWc%26hl%3Den%26authkey%3DCOrFw9gB). Kevan compiled some data on the number of proposals made each month (grepping for the string ">Proposal: across all monthly archives, which may be imperfect) and the number of "active" players (those who made one post during each month), from 2005 to 2012, and the data is available here (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AjhtPKjOTCRWdFhRUDBZbWRRVmk2NVk3cGFNeS1aX0E).

1 Dynasty length
1.1 Analysis by Josh
Some initial things that stand out: Dynasties have gotten more homogenous since around 40 onwards; dynasties up until 40 seem to average at a month by default, instead tending to come in at either more than 40 days or fewer than 20, with only a few in between:
Meanwhile, 34 days is the most common dynasty length, but the functional window for for dynasty lengths is between 19 and 43 days:
Also, interestingly, July is the least common month for successful DoVs.
1.2 Analysis by Winner
Another interesting graph which shows the average dynasty length over the last 5 dynasties.
2 "Active" players per month
(Note that this measures the number of players who made at least one post to the blog during each calendar month.)
