PCG.SE is going on a mission.

And so the race begins. For Code Review!! -- syb0rg 2 days ago

Let's see:

Programming Puzzles and Code Golf Voting & Activity PCG Activity 2013-2014

PCG.SE Voting and Activity Chart

Compare to:

Code Review Voting & Activity CR Activity 2013-2014

CR.SE Voting and Activity Chart

Or, as has been established before, a more comparable freshly-graduated site:

Web Applications Voting & Activity WebApps Activity 2013-2014

WebApps.SE Voting and Activity Chart

Look at the chart scales: PCG's goes up to 8K. Ours? 2K. Neither are graduated sites. WebApps' scale goes up to 800.


Both sites are apparently headed into the right direction, but...

PCG's mission is trying to hit the same nail as we are, and that boils down to the breakdown of avid users.

I have forked @doorknob's query and made a single query that selects everything in one pass here.

The targets have been set:

  • 3 20K users
  • 10 10K users
  • 80 3K users
  • 120 2K users

This is where we stand, as of the last SEDE update - the figures under each rep cluster represent the %target achieved, and the query only accounts for users last seen in the last 60 days:

Code Review

  • ****20K: 133% (4/3)**** (+4) - DONE!

  • ****10K: 100% (10/10)**** (+3) - DONE!

  • 3K: 50% (40/80) - no changes on either side!

  • 2K: 48.33% (59/120) - +1 over last week, PCG 0!

Code Golf

  • 20K: 0% (0/3)

  • 10K: 70% (7/10)

  • 3K: 61.25% (49/80) (+9) - no changes on either side!

  • 2K: 64.17% (77/120) (+18) - we're catching up!

Let's beat them at their own game!

All ideas, comments and opinions are welcome.

This could also be a subject of discussion:

  • \$\begingroup\$ Do you still have the link to the query? I'm curious how the number of each level user we have has changed in the last few months. \$\endgroup\$

If you are looking for freshly posted answers to vote on: look no farther! I have created a chat bot that automatically searches for new answers and posts them to this chatroom feed.

We have magic potion!

Asterix makes "magic potion"

[...] Asterix eases the Britons' disappointment by claiming that he carries herbs to remake the potion, as working for Getafix has given him that knowledge. These are later revealed to be tea. With a psychological boost, the village prevails against the Romans.

This is just a friendly reminder to vote. You have 40 votes to use every day, and I don't see many reasons to not use them all. Your voting on answers is what makes the reviewing process fun.

In case you don't think I practice what I preach.


I was curious about how things have changed in the last three months. Here's the current status compared against where we were when this was first posted.


  • 20K: 166.67% (5/3) - +1 user

  • 10K: 130% (13/10) - +3 users

  • 3K: 60% (48/80) - +8 users!

  • 2K: 59.17% (71/120) - +12 users!!
