Has anyone put together a script to generate the score vs. age of a question?
If this script were run on all questions in a particular tag, the curve generated by taking the average over a time window would be a useful proxy for the "ease of entry" for a particular tag. For example, I participate in the MATLAB, Python, and C++ tags, and there is extreme variation in the degree to which weaker questions are tolerated.
Weak questions in MATLAB are generally met with supportive comments; unless the user clearly isn't trying at all. Decent questions from somewhat-skilled users are routinely down-voted into oblivion in C++.
I'd like to try to graphically represent that difference.
So, do you know of anything like this? If not, I'm going to get working on it.
