The Trendy application is being retired in the new year. The new web application, ThingSpeak, offers similar functionality. We recommend that active Trendy users who are looking to create new trends use ThingSpeak. To begin collecting your data in ThingSpeak, please read the tutorial : ThingSpeak for Trendy users. Although Trendy no longer allows the creation of new trends, the application will still remain accessible until January 13, 2016. Until that date, you can view your current trends and download your data. After that date, your data will no longer be accessible. Thanks for using Trendy and we encourage you to check out ThingSpeak.

Plot for Will MATLAB Answers converge?

This plot is disabled.

Included from trend description:

Here I present two simple ratios:

  • answered questions over total number of questions (ANTO)
  • accepted answers over answered questions (ACAN)

A very crude measure of quality of the forum could be the convergence of the two ratios to 1.

The ratios are correlated by construction but it's interesting to observe the delays in the adjustments and to monitor deviations from the optimal path.

Could we see:

(Answered + (doit4me tags && not answered)) / total?

I am trying to figure out how to query correctly and which "questions" to ask.
