The 100 most popular videos on diabolo.ca
« on: May 28, 2010, 06:01:08 pm »
The following are the 100 most viewed video threads on diabolo.ca (as of May 2010) from an analysis of the forum database. It shows the 100 most viewed video threads after controlling for the trend of overall thread views over time. It only includes videos from the main video section. Older videos are going to have a lower average views/day since they've been around for a lot longer. Newer videos are going to have a higher than average views/day. Some years there were more people using the forum than others. This analysis picks out the 100 videos (the red dots) that deviate the most from this trend (the red line). The trend line was derived from a generalized additive model using the mgcv package in R.


Update February 28 2013: A plot with the top 180 videos from 2004–2012:

Note the log scaled vertical axis.
The second plot doesn't precisely match the tables below. I ran the 2010–2013 analysis separately because I didn't want to touch the original table as posted.

Some of the usernames need to be changed to reflect the actual creator of the video. Also, I think it could benefit from a handcrafted section highlighting some of the great videos before the forum started. Suggestions for those? Two Loose in Toulouse for sure...

Thanks.

But what one was overall the most popular? Top ten maybe?

It's a bit hard to tell because the older video threads had to stand the test of time (or at least rank well on Google, ahem, Hot Teen On Cam) whereas newer threads might have just had a spike of views during some heated discussion. In that sense this is approximate and it's hard to compare too closely across years. Using replies might be a better way because people don't tend to post in video threads after a certain amount of time. I've already played with that and will see about putting something together. There's so much that can be done with this data now that I'm dusting off my SQL skills!

We could do so much more if we new when each thread view occurred, but unfortunately we don't.

My point of doing this was to:
1. remind us about some of the old great videos we haven't seen in a while
2. help new people discover great videos
3. help people find videos that were around before they started regularly reading the forum.

Also, because it's all scripted, it can be easily updated, which is less work than having someone manually maintain this type of thing.

Google ranking huh? thought Zack and Chris's '2 cup and an axle' stuff would make a better showing then :P

Wow that brought back memories. Especially Barnsey's loop video! Has it ever been topped?

And Ryo Yabe's WJF profile video has perhaps my all-time favorite trick in it: that crazy 1d-duicide caught behind the back to start 2d.

But where's Man's Chew and Baguettes!?!

They are both from the pre-forum days! Are those votes to include them in the B.Dca (before Diabolo.ca) time period? :)

Cool list...pre-forum:

All of the MFP's old stuff, some vids on the Diarythm site (hah best of the 90's here even?), Guy Heathcotes 3D shuffle throwstart and run on Barnesys site, Martin Malls old promovideo with smoke and stuff, Lena Köhns 3D rocketstart (supershort but first time I saw a 3D rocket start), Barnesys vids on 2diabolo.net...some of the ones I can instantly think of are nice but there are many more ofcourse. Do Diabolofollies count :-D?

Most of these aren't those kinds of edited vids but pre-forum and above all pre-youtube you didn't really see that.

Sure, I could update this. I'll add it to my todo list. Might wait a bit though until it approaches a year since the last time (i.e. May).
