Nice graphing tool.  Not trusting "likes" that shoots up in steep staircase steps when money is involved as it doesn't follow same traffic pattern for the rest of us peons.  I have seen a cluster of "likes" that shows up before the details of a project went up. Would be nice to go back in time in the log file to correlate activities.  :(

For the Round One, Yann's dataset is the only one with a timestamp, so no history for the Skulling date/time for now.

For the next rounds, I want to setup an automation that harvests data periodically.

Regarding the projects with Awards that jumps whenever Hackaday raises the Seed Pot (did I just wrote 'seed pot'!?! :o), maybe those projects already has had Likes collected while the pot was empty, and when the pot was increased, they automatically gain more Awards, who knows.

Hey Yann, please don't edit my content, I like this broken table display, with the Read More tag inside of a cell. It makes me feel like hacking, even if I'm not. You can always add your own log entries, and I promise I won't modify them.

hehe, the top100 details are cut off and effing with the design. A line-number would be could, I'd have to count the rows up to my position, but can't cause lazy.

Boy, that's an interesting bug.  And this page sure has horribly broken HTML.  https://validator.w3.org/nu/?doc=https://hackaday.io/project/21633-statistics-for-2017-hackaday-prize-entries

well it's a character amount based cutoff on a table, nothing wildly surprising ;) hackaday.io in that validator is quite okay.

Indeed, I managed to put almost all the content of the page as a cell in the Top 100 table, not bad.

:o)

I gave up this kind of fights long time ago. The wordpress editor has a will of it's own. Anyway, this project screams for some charts, maybe then will clean up the formatting, too.

I do not know if the team controls the accounts created by a single person to artificially increase his likes.

I'm afraid I don't understand.
Can you give an example, please?

RoGeorge wrote 05/04/2017 at 10:28 point

I have had a chat with Ulysse, and the concern was about project with fake voters.

This project does not try to detect possible fake users/votes, it just collect the data available in hackadai.io pages by automatically browsing the 2017 prize lists, so it is not judging the projects, it is just displaying statistics about the 2017 contest.

To avoid firing the human Hackaday Judges, the judging job is left to them, for now.
:o)

Morning.Star wrote 05/04/2017 at 16:20 point

I misunderstood, RoGeorge, no worries. Languages and cultures :-)

You should have entered it sooner, it would have challenged Yann's magnificent effort. At least, I think the leaderboard part of the project is a skull-magnet and an inspired one at that. Who of us is not going to follow it... Brilliant.

  Are you sure? yes | no

Ulysse wrote 05/05/2017 at 12:06 point

Unfortunately this is the case of several projects.

Yann Guidon / YGDES wrote 05/01/2017 at 10:42 point

Hi ! Thanks for this great work :-)

I must report an inconsistency : I won't get 596 bucks, but "only" 558, according to my script that scrapes  https://hackaday.io/api/misc/prizeLeaderboard, but it's either 1) my script is wrong or 2) you count likes that are not counted by the leaderboard. Curious.

Oh, and "oh f***" I thought bobricius would get the #1 spot...

  Are you sure? yes | no

Yann Guidon / YGDES wrote 05/01/2017 at 10:48 point

Maybe the discrepancy is due to the way we count projects with contributors ?

  Are you sure? yes | no

RoGeorge wrote 05/01/2017 at 11:08 point

I don't know, maybe.

Some differences might came from the date/time when I collected the dataset:
That data timestamp is from 2017-05-01 05:01:09, Bucharest time.

Anyway, I didn't checked if the projects obey all the contest rules. All I did was to take he project submitted to "2017Prize" before that timestamp, and having the tag "2017HACKADAYPRIZE".

  Are you sure? yes | no

Yann Guidon / YGDES wrote 05/01/2017 at 11:31 point

But???? Your stats might not add up to 6000.....

Use https://hackaday.io/api/misc/prizeLeaderboard

  Are you sure? yes | no

RoGeorge wrote 05/01/2017 at 16:15 point

I have no idea what criteria were used by HaD when calculating money.

My data does not have a 6000 skulls limit. It simply list all projects with their skulls/followers and so on. For the moment I don't have a JSON parser, but you can check the skulls manually for your project.

You can open the link and filter data by your user ID, 82584, so you will see only your projects. Please let me know if you find any mistakes

Let's take this project. In my data it has 47 Likes. In the project page from hackaday.io it also has 47 Skulls.

But in the PrizeLeaderboard data, the same project has only 40 skulls. I have no idea why, and I don't know how HaD calculated the numbers. You should ask somebody from Had.

This is the data from LeaderBoard, only 40 instead of 47:

RoGeorge wrote 05/01/2017 at 16:28 point

I would like to use https://hackaday.io/api/misc/prizeLeaderboard too in the Google sheet, but it is not possible yet because of these reasons:

1. Don't have a nice parser for JSON yet
2. Don't know what are those numbers from prizeLeaderboard
3. My intention was to make some statistics about the projects, I don't know all the rules applied by HaD when transforming Likes -> $$$.

  Are you sure? yes | no

K.C. Lee wrote 05/01/2017 at 16:56 point

My guess is the leader board is only counting likes on a day to day basis.  So if you have likes before the official day, they won't be counted.

  Are you sure? yes | no

Yann Guidon / YGDES wrote 05/01/2017 at 17:01 point

K.C. is right: the "awarded" bucks start from the day of the opening and the total number of likes is inflated if the project was created before march 20th.

Your ranking is biased and invalid :-/

time to parse these leaderboard data...

  Are you sure? yes | no

RoGeorge wrote 05/01/2017 at 17:33 point

The definition for disappointment is wrong expectation.
:o)

I'm sorry this project disappointed you, but it was started to do some statistics about projects, not as a LeaderBoard ranking.

You are correct about that "Top money". I will remove the word money. It should be top Skulls, or Likes.

  Are you sure? yes | no

Yann Guidon / YGDES wrote 05/01/2017 at 17:46 point

There is no disappointment, only measurements and misunderstanding :-)

at least the data are there, waiting to be examined.

  Are you sure? yes | no

Rishaldy Prisly wrote 05/01/2017 at 10:52 point

is that always updating itself or you need to edit them to do some update sir? Sorry for my bad englis

  Are you sure? yes | no

RoGeorge wrote 05/01/2017 at 10:57 point

The data is not live, what you see is a frozen snapshot from a few hours ago.
If you open the Google link, on the upper bar is a file name. The file name also contains a timestamp.

That data is from 2017-05-01 05:01:09, Bucharest time

  Are you sure? yes | no

Rishaldy Prisly wrote 05/01/2017 at 15:00 point

hi sir, i saw the leaderboard on hackaday.io/prize in the "bootstrap your idea" section. Is that the official leaderboard? But lookslike it was so old. I don't care much about 'seed funding' section, im just got nervous in this challenge, this is my first. Do you know when the official announcement of the winner? I've mailed them, they said yhat the winners will be announced today, but the other answered that the winners will be announced 1-2 weeks after round 1 end

  Are you sure? yes | no

Yann Guidon / YGDES wrote 05/01/2017 at 15:14 point

Yes, you have to wait 1 to 2 weeks for the results, and about a month for the seeds. Don't hold your breath but it will be done :-)

Today is just the closing of the first round, not the announcement of the winner.

  Are you sure? yes | no

RoGeorge wrote 05/02/2017 at 06:56 point

Yes, this is the official Hackaday leaderboard, the table from the middle of this page: https://hackaday.io/prize

it counts the seed money awards for the first round of the HaD 2017 contest. The winners for the first round will be listed in the main blog https://hackaday.com/blog/. I don't know the exact date, I am visiting it daily. Good Luck!
