Stats Update

I was taking a look at the stats for the journal with over 100 entries to see if there were any trends. i am 100% not a statistician, so I thought maybe someone else could look at it.

I noticed some trends:
1. The number of posts does not directly reflect the number of views. While more posts generally mean more views, it is not always the case.

2. Being connected to others helps. The more people you become friends with in real life, that are also on the site, the mroe views you have.

3. Number of images is not directly correlated to number of views.

4. If you are korean, you are very popoular or you look at your own journal a lot when not logged in.

Okay, (e:ajay) has created the greatest update for the site. For those of you that do not know, he has created an AIM AOL bot that can answer questions about the site. It is currently in beta stages but is highly functional. To chat with the bot, simply add "estripbot" to your aol buddy list.

[size=m]Current Commands[/size]
journals - Lists the journals by author, title, and time posted
read number - Replace number with the number of the journal entry you want to read from the list provided after typing journals
peeps - Lists the peeps that are currenlty online

If you don't enter one of the preset commands the bot will try and engage you in a conversation. Try it out.

Yesterday was an almost record day with about ~300MB of bandwidth used. Think of that like trading ~210 floppy disks full of information.

e:peeps, inlinks and e:pads

Welcome new epeeps. If you have any questions feel free to email or IM paul. You can also ask questions in the chat box and surely someone will respond during the day.

[size=m]Inlink Update With epad Support[/size]
I updated the inlink process. An inlink is a way of linking your journal entry to another journal entry on the site. There are two ways to make an inlink.

1. When logged in you can see the inlink code for any journal entry at the bottom of the entry. If you copy that copde into your journal, it will make a link to the journal you copied from.

2. If you are going to be making multiple inlinks, you might find it more convevnient to have all of the inlink codes copied to your epad. Your epad is like your own digital notepad or clipboard. You can use it to save and store text, which you can email at any point using the email feature at the top of the pad.

To copy the inlink text to your epad, find the entry you want to inlink to and click on the little chain icon at the bottom of the entry. The journal inlink code will then be copied into your epad where you can store it for later, or copy it right away for use in your journal. To open you epad , simply click on the pad icon in your control panel. It is the one to the right of the # sign.

You don't even have to be at the site to use your epad. The epad is accessible at . If you were not previously logged into the site, you will be asked to login on the epad page. Your epad is a private space that only you will see and is not accessible without your password.
