Economy Report V1.05 - August 31st (in Off-topic)

AdminShade August 31 2009 3:50 PM EDT

Economy report Monday August 31st. (next ones should all be made on Sundays, wanted to make it last night but was tired, anyway let me get started)

I'm not sure what full stats were given the last time this was done but I'm now just making a long list and make a presentation format for it later.

Clickety click, clickety click

QBRanger August 31 2009 3:54 PM EDT

Anyway you can compare it to the last one from almost 1 year ago?

In a table form like Lam?

AdminShade August 31 2009 3:57 PM EDT

Yes Ranger, I should be able to, but not tonight.
I took a quick look at his coding and it is huge. I had hoped to come up with a reasonably small coding in which I could put this all in easily but perhaps I should make a thread for it to have someone think of such a thing for me :)

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] August 31 2009 4:01 PM EDT

why not just make it in a gooogle docs spreadsheet using the tabs and link it here?

either way, thanks for carrying the torch! ; )

AdminShade August 31 2009 4:04 PM EDT

dudemus, while google docs are perhaps useful, I have no idea how to use them as of yet...

if there is a guide to using them, perhaps give me a link to it. Making a spreadsheet thing for it would be nice, alternatively I could host files on my website.

Cube August 31 2009 4:10 PM EDT

Google Docs is fairly straight forwards. You can use normal Microsoft Office/Openoffice to create a spreadsheet and just upload it as a google doc.

AdminShade August 31 2009 4:12 PM EDT

"upload it as a google doc."

That is where you lose me at the moment... :$

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] August 31 2009 4:13 PM EDT

yeppers, if ya can use excel google docs spreadsheets are a piece of cake. even if you were a lotus 1.2.3 user you can figure it out as well. if you have never used a spreadsheet program, then it is likely not the best idea.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] August 31 2009 4:14 PM EDT > create account and log in > find the upload file button

AdminShade August 31 2009 4:19 PM EDT

I know Microdork's Excel so I'm no stranger to spreadsheets.

Figured out how to upload it also. Now to make a template and how to arrange everything in the document :)

AdminShade August 31 2009 4:22 PM EDT

Can other people edit this or am I the only one?

QBRanger August 31 2009 4:24 PM EDT

I cannot edit it.

Demigod August 31 2009 4:26 PM EDT

Today: 216 active users from the past 7 days
1 year ago : 297 active users from the past 7 days

::shakes head::

Shade, thanks for giving this a shot. Good luck not getting burnt out.

AdminShade August 31 2009 4:28 PM EDT

Good, that is the way I want it to be.

Tomorrow after work I will be working on getting some of the information in the spreadsheet. Have to find a easy to view way of displaying it all, perhaps in multiple sheets with a menu on page 1? Give me ideas in _this_ thread please.

AdminShade September 1 2009 12:57 PM EDT


Check out version 1 and give me comments!

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] September 1 2009 1:07 PM EDT

Like I said in chat, it would be nice if you could rip off Lamu's HTML.
And I doubt you would need to use ver. 5.

AdminShade September 1 2009 1:27 PM EDT

While I could rip off his version 4 code, it's still a big chunk of code while I think I have no way of editing it nicely...

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] September 1 2009 4:16 PM EDT

from his post in this thread, i think jon wanted them done differently than when lammy did them:

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] September 1 2009 4:57 PM EDT

oh, & i like the report shade! thanks again. ; )

AdminShade September 2 2009 1:26 AM EDT

Good to hear, think of things which I should include btw!

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] September 2 2009 7:06 AM EDT

Holy Crap! If this doesn't tell you what Nub has done I don't know what does...

Last Year:
Liquid assets
Total NW

This Year:
Total liquid assets:
Total item net worth:

almost 1.7 billion more liquid nw and 17 billion total item nw!!!!

thats only over a one year span... and just think in 2008 CB had only been around 3 and a half years or so in august... maybe this might prove that Nub is a little overpowered with its huge cash influx?

AdminShade September 3 2009 11:24 AM EDT

Please when you read this and look at the Economic Report, let me know what you think of it and also please do give me comment on things!

Don't think you are nitpicking!!! And if you think, oh well all looks good, give me that feedback also because I rely on it to make it 'perfect'

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] September 3 2009 11:35 AM EDT

i like it shade, perhaps it could just be a larger font across the board though for us old farts?

AdminShade September 3 2009 11:48 AM EDT

Upped the font size from 10 to 11, how does that look?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] September 3 2009 11:52 AM EDT

could we try it at 14?

AdminShade September 3 2009 11:55 AM EDT

14? I think that would be overly large somehow... what resolution are you using then?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] September 3 2009 12:03 PM EDT

1680 X 1050 which is the native resolution of my lcd monitor.

AdminShade September 3 2009 12:10 PM EDT

hmmm, 14 is really big... :(

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] September 3 2009 12:19 PM EDT

the font options on my end were greyed out so that i couldn't just do it here, but i did find that ctrl + works to zoom in firefox. so no worries shade!

Demigod September 3 2009 12:25 PM EDT

"Dudemus, I don't like font size 14 :( mostly because you need to merge cells so much :("

I just saw that. I also like how Google Docs shows your RL names in the corner. Thanks, Dennis!

AdminShade September 3 2009 12:38 PM EDT

Yay, and indeed my name is Dennis.

I have added 1 more week as history, though it is a very tedious job so if you want more history, make me lists which I can copy into it ;)

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] September 3 2009 9:42 PM EDT

Is there any way to extract data on which weapons or armors are actually used on characters? (As opposed to just lying in the equipment, or being on inactive characters.) Preferably the ones that have been fought with at least once with in a week. It would not be very exact but still interesting to see...

I realize this probably is too much trouble :P

AdminShade September 4 2009 1:52 AM EDT

I do not have any conventional and easy way to perform such query.
It would involve checking every and all active character to see what equipment it has...

FailBoat[SG] [Forever Alone] September 4 2009 2:11 AM EDT

Draco, while the liquid assets has risen, we lost over 100 players in the last year. Thats -alot- of people.

AdminShade September 4 2009 2:17 AM EDT

True, but while we lost players, still the amount of liquid assets is going through the roof...

AdminShade September 4 2009 2:20 AM EDT

... or not, if you see the simple calculations I have made to take the average per week.
(gap in between last one and the previous one is 1 year and a few weeks, so I took 54 weeks)

Then you even see a decline in the amount of liquid assets, but an increase in NW build up!
