    • Smarter lookup of users across sites.

+1 Quite Snazzy! You may want to change the instructions - it's a little confusing. Also, when I look at the "Interest in tags by year", it only displays tags for StackApps. The other sites just display "other". –  Nathan Osman Jun 24 '10 at 6:02
    
Thanks George. Which instructions do you find confusing? Only your top 30 tags over the years are reported individually. Everything else gets bundled into 'other'. I'll double this for the interest in tags by year. –  RichH Jun 24 '10 at 6:16
    
@Rich: Ah - it's clear to me now. The whole thing is pretty :) –  Nathan Osman Jun 24 '10 at 6:22
    
@George. Thanks. I've increased the number of tags in the treemap to 100. It looks much better now. –  RichH Jun 24 '10 at 6:28
    
@Rich You should allow users to enter in User Ids instead of Names. –  jjnguy Jun 24 '10 at 11:47
    
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'length' of undefined /stack.js:119 - Do you still have to make some changes because of the 0.9 API? –  eWolf Jun 26 '10 at 8:45
    
@eWolf - Yep, it's a 0.9 issue. I'm looking into it now. Thanks for letting me know. –  RichH Jun 26 '10 at 15:43
    
@RichH is it working at the moment? I got "stack_sites is undefined" js error. –  systempuntoout Jun 26 '10 at 18:37
    
Should be fixed now with 0.9. Thanks for letting me know. –  RichH Jun 26 '10 at 21:42
    
@RichH working good! –  systempuntoout Jun 27 '10 at 21:19

Feature Request:

I think Stack Insight is marvelous! It is quite reminiscent of the extraordinary visualization work of Hans Rosling.

My request is to allow the 2-step process to be a single step, i.e. I would like to bookmark my data page. Your site currently requires manually entering the user name since it is just calling a JavaScript function on the same page. Could you provide a hook so that one may bookmark it (i.e. something like http: //www.heathtest.com/default?uname=xyz) ?

Great idea. I'll try and add it soon. –  RichH Jun 30 '10 at 22:11

Thanks. I'll look into it. –  RichH Jun 27 '10 at 3:27
    
Great spot thanks. It turns out the username check is case sensitive. I'll fix that (assuming it is not the api that is the issue). In the meantine please use Farseeker. –  RichH Jun 27 '10 at 3:33
    
Fixed this - thanks for spotting it. –  RichH Jun 28 '10 at 0:34

This didn't work for me. I assumed it was just because i'm not very active, but it doesn't work for Jon Skeet either. This happens for me in all the browsers i've tried it with (Firefox, Opera, Arora (a webkit browser) and IE8).

Very odd. It works fine for me on IE8, Chrome and Firefox for you username. I can see JavaScript, date-explorer and discussion are you three tag with the most interest. Do you have flash installed? –  RichH Jun 27 '10 at 3:31
    
I recently decided to uninstall Flash, so no. If it requires Flash, nevermind, but you might want to have it display a message if it isn't installed. –  Gelatin Jun 27 '10 at 15:44
    
I've added info to the description above and will add a check for flash to the code soon. Thanks. –  RichH Jun 28 '10 at 0:35
