This is very interesting Elastika. I am not sure what it means. Think and Ideas are high because we are a the initial stage later on plans and planning and act might rise in frequency.
The distribution of nationalities might also spread. Did the concept begin to be spread in the US and move out from there or is it that people in the US have more access to computers and priviledge it more with their time?
Thanks. Did you work them out? Where can they be found? Did you choose the words?

In my last post I used your idea of changing font size, it is so much easier to scan. Thank you.

This is just awesome! How did you get those data? I want more... I NEED them :)
Seriously, we could come out with nice and interesting infographics for this, I'd be glad to work on them. Keep me updated, pease.
For what it worths, you're confirmed as one of my preferred EVOKE agents at all

@PJE This numbers are put in the brackets next to the post/agent search. But it takes some time to gather it.:) I just randomly picked the words.
I think the numbers of the agents nationality definitely show that EVOKE was probably most widely promoted in the States and probably it shows that is easier for native speakers to contribute on EVOKE. As I also think (that's not based on numbers, but on looking what people say in their secret identity sheet) that's higher level of education is also important to be successful on EVOKE.
Unfortunately Africans are not widely represented probably due to the lack of access to computers. That's bad, it think their insight could be incredible useful to evaluate our ideas.
But have you also noticed how small share of agents is active on EVOKE (just a 0,6 post per agent!)
@Ste ... I can find some more data, no problem :) and if you want you are welcome to make infographic out of it ... that would be superb!
... and for your last sentence - thank you, that's really nice :) you know how is said: people of one feather ...

I promise I'll keep you up to date with EVOKE statistics

well people don't have feathers don't they, birds do :)

I agree with you, Elastika Momentum is built up for people listed in the leaders and that is right but I'd like to see a list of people who have completed say 4 tasks but who have very few points, sort of a bottom list as well as top list. Fellow feeling and sheep dog thinking but also you make me think that their voices which are so vital might be harder to hear because their English or computer access is not as good as mine. I expect Alchemy is looking out for them, I hope so!

Really interesting statistics, Elastika! Stefano, I think it would be wonderful to turn it into some graphics. Good graphics can often give you an insight into things you can't get any other way. I think having almost a third of the people be from 'other' countries-- and almost half from non-North American countries is awfully good. I'm sure you're right that lack of English keeps many from playing- or playing very much. If you could see age groups you'd probably also find most are young and quite technically-savvy. I know a lot of people who would probably enjoy playing if they had better computer skills. I don't know if there are any ways around either of these things that might help pull in a greater diversity of players. Perhaps setting up local teams, with one person assigned as the 'computer scribe' to put the groups ideas down in blog entries?
Hmm. This is giving me some ideas. More later.
Comment by Elastika on March 29, 2010 at 2:21pm
@Sarah: I agree, definitely younger population is more technically savvy and I think your hypothesis would definitely confirm if we could get more data of EVOKE demographics.
I don't think this is the only reason why younger people are more present on EVOKE - introducing and promoting EVOKE as a computer game also in advance attracts specific younger and I also think predominately male population.

I also found a post of EVOKE producer Robert Hawkins on google analytics data: http://blogs.worldbank.org/edutech/evoke-when-spider-webs-unite-the...

I'm posting data from Alexa - from my experience not always 100% reliable, but interesting to scan a bit: http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/urgentevoke.com#trafficstats

@Neuromancer: I don't get it ... how can I get more agents demographic data on the EVOKE search?
I agree that for words this search works great.
Comment by Elastika on March 29, 2010 at 3:08pm
that would be a great feature! I hope admins will approve this idea.
otherwise yes, with a combination of words a lot of interesting data could be gathered ...

say hi to Pan, I also had a problem with signing in - it takes day or two, I left a comment on his blog what happened to me: http://www.urgentevoke.com/profiles/blogs/censorship-rahul-dewanjee... (at least in my case it wasn't censorship)

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
