Title: IRC science
Post by: atomic7732 on October 09, 2017, 07:42:08 PM
so i wrote a script that counts the uses of certain laughing acronyms cause i wanted to see how the usage of kol and lmao evolved through time on irc and got this using mine (April 2015 onward) and dar's (pre-April 2015) logs...

(https://i.gyazo.com/0e5bebe23ed73d27fd11b5ad75a8ba8d.png)

i wrote the script mostly with this laugh count in mind, so my counting method is effectively the number of lines in which a phrase appears per month. it is not the total occurrences in the logs, because multiple occurrences in the same line, say "kol kol" would only count for one kol. this mitigates the effect of spam. if multiple laughs (or phrases) appear in the same line, they are both counted once. phrases also only show up when they are separated by spaces or at the end of a line, so "lmaoooo" does not count for lmao, and "kolkol" does not count for kol. this is to mitigate false positives such as in words that just happen to contain "kol" or "lol", granted, that's probably not much in english, but it applies to later searches i did. words at the beginning of a line have a space before them in the logs, so they are counted.

it's interesting to note that lmao appeared once and took over a year to actually start chipping away at the usage of kol, and during its first peak, it actually tended to displace lol.

after seeing these interesting results i decided... hey we could use this to track other memes and linguistic trends, so me and fiah thought up some words and we got this

then i normalized all the values so that the level of IRC activity would not affect the numbers and added a few more phrases...

then fiah was like, what about pavala and universalis:

syule suggested i plot when months were mentioned, and i didn't really want to change the way the data was plotted so i did years:

and a relative plot:

some like fandom stuff i guess:

my nicks:

apparently my renaming as kalassak ended the fight between "atomic" "atomic7732" and "nue" really abruptly

these are not nick usages, they are mentions, because as noted before, search phrases must have spaces around them. the logs put <> around nicks when people say things.

syule's nicks:

presidential candidates:

some general nicknames but this is kind of a mess cause nicks change through time and people join and leave so it gets cluttered:

if you have any interesting ideas, let me know!

character increase is probably just <iris-discord> at the front of every message tbh

but that wasn't until december... wasn't it? or was there another disc word server shortly before that?
Title: Re: IRC science
Post by: atomic7732 on March 07, 2018, 07:34:35 PM
also it's gradual

there was a discord server before but it had limited use and wasn't connected to irc via iris

i did have to fix this to remove <iris-discord> and timestamps and nicks and such... i just used a simple algorithm assuming that people don't include the character ">" in their messages that much, which should be fairly reasonable. it just counts all characters after the last occurrence of ">"
Title: Re: IRC science
Post by: Darvince on November 17, 2018, 10:59:35 PM
the only time i can think of when > was included a lot was when we would say things like '>time is real'
Title: Re: IRC science
Post by: atomic7732 on November 17, 2018, 11:05:48 PM
yeah which only removes one character anyway

uh why do you not trim from the first > instead of the last one
Title: Re: IRC science
Post by: atomic7732 on November 18, 2018, 11:55:12 PM
because some lines are like

[time] <user> message

and some lines are like

[time] <iris-discord> <discord user> message
