Year in WordPress" visualises what your year on WordPress.org looked like (2016)

yearinwp.com | Jan. 4, 2017 | 1 min read

"Year in WordPress" allows you to visualise the past year in WordPress.org activity, showing contributions to core, plugin downloads, etc. Enjoy :-).

All it showed me was that I spoke at 2 WordCamps, which I did, but not that I asked or answered forum questions, nor that my meetup joined the official WP community program, nor any plugins I favorited or downloaded.

Unfortunately, not all data is easy to retrieve. For example, there's no way to detect if someone's even part of a meetup group. It's also impossible to see which plugins you have downloaded. Regarding the favorited plugins, they can be retrieved, but not in way like "which plugins did X favorite in 2016 alone".

I'm sure Jesper will continue to improve his site for the years to come. Some support forums stats would be interesting for sure. Lots of other things like translations stats are already on his list according to Twitter.

The description above says that it shows plugins you've downloaded. Maybe it's meant to say that it shows plugins you've written, but while I don't see Meetup-related info on my profile, all the forum topics created and responded to show up under Activity. I suspect the problem is expectations raised by the way the site was introduced here.

Hi Sallie! Pascal explains it well: some data is more difficult to retrieve than other data. There's basically very little usage statistics available for retrieval, which is probably for the best -- I wouldn't like data about when I downloaded which plugins to be up for grabs online. I've included data for plugin and theme authors (including number of downloads, reviews and support topics), core contributions and WordCamps, but I agree that it would be cool to include data on activity in the WordPress.org forums in general. There's other ideas that I have for Year in WP, as Pascal correctly guessed, and I hope I can make time for them next year!

About the "plugin downloads": I'm sorry about the ambiguity, I didn't notice it. It's about the number of downloads for plugins and themes you've contributed to.

I hope you enjoyed the Year in WP profiles nonetheless!

Cheers!
Jesper

It seems like a nice service for plugin and theme authors and might encourage people to do more contributing.
