If this has been suggested and shot down, sorry! I looked but didn’t find anything of the sort.
Is there a way to extract the historical data of my profile? I know I could make an app to slurp the data and store it, but I was hoping perhaps this was already saved. I imagine backups are made on a regular basis as well.
It would be nice to see my progress. For example, when I took my honeymoon a few months ago, there was a drop in my usage. Whenever I install a new pc, there’s a few days before I install WP. If I had a graph of my historical data, I would be able to reminisce in a most geeky way (which of course seems right in line with the entire theme of WP!)
I also would be able to gauge myself against the rest of the WP community by comparing my rank over time. Am I slipping? Should I do more coding at work instead of browsing the web to gain a higher rank? (We all think it, we’re just afraid to say it!)
What sort of records are currently kept? Has someone undertaken a project like this in the past? What is WP’s policy on automated information gathering? (note: that I bet I could find if I searched for it, I just haven’t yet).
