RE: Forum Visualisations
It's Monday...and rest assured I'm not sitting on my hands.

Working on vairious things just now (in order):

(1) Just submitted the latest draft of the survey to the admins, this should be fit for wider feedback later this week.

(2) Been working on a global weather algorithm for the map visualisation. This is a headache, but my aim is to create a visual representation of the weather over the last year, overlaid with our user map AND a picture of who is talking to who. Great fun.

(3) There's some chatter here that's seems to have spawned two videos:
a) A visualisation of 'most liked threads'
b) A visualisation/mash up of Belbin team roles and forum user activity. This one will be tricky and I'll need your help, but it's not impossible.

"Belbin team roles"?

Huh?

A single action is worth more than the words it takes to describe it.

Too lazy to follow the links? Pah! Here... http://www.belbin.com/rte.asp?id=8

I was musing as to whether the occasional flare-ups we experience might be something to do with an imbalance of Belbin's 9 team characteristics.

Please don't lose sight of liked posts if you do this. For example, how many posts with 10+ likes? 5+ likes? and so on.

Good point and I'll absolutely keep this in mind.
