Post's counter

I can see my average posts-per-day... but I wanna see a particular day. Any way I could somehow see the amount of posts I've done for a certain date? Like, say, today, if I wanted to?

General stats: http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=1062;sa=statPanel

Also, with the following, you can show all posts you made in a certain time period, and then count them afterwards: http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?action=search2

.......................

Yeah, if I make my keyword 'e' :P

Seriously, I'm surprised this isn't simply showed on the stats page.

Better make it '*e*'. ;)

There's monthly and daily stuff on here: http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?action=stats

But not per person. Though I think it just saves that data, rather than recalculating it every time someone checks it. And saving all that data per person can grow pretty big.

Clarification: I mean the post rate for a particular member, for a specified stretch of time. Like my own posts for today, or another members for the week, out of curiosity. Its really baffling there is no such feature.

Probably just because of technical limitations; this place already takes up a lot of storage, I'm sure... the more data you collect, the more room has to be found to store it, somewhere.

It's not really a space issue. Assuming I didn't want to bother nixing posts that were in the garbage dump (where deleted posts go), it would just be
SELECT COUNT(*) FROM messages WHERE ID_MEMBER=(x) AND postTime > y AND postTime < z;

Implementing it and then integrating it with the theme would be 90% of the work, and right now people want me to do things that are a bit more important - if someone really wants to know how many posts they made over a period, they can just look through their last posts and count - it's sorted in reverse chronological order and there are 25 posts to the page.

I find it easier to click on the profile of the person in question, then on 'show the last posts of this person'.  They're sorted in order, and have 25 per page.. just go until you see the word 'yesterday' and you have your number right in front of you... and crap, I just read Vek's post. 

Well, I typed this.. I'm posting it anyway  :P

I'm really not sure why it would be needed in any case...

The same reason anything else would be needed... curiosity! :)

I agree Vekka, theres probably a hundred and four things that are more important for E right now. Just thought I'd post this here, but for now, I'll use the way you described.
