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 😛 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.
