A mishmash of gloriously useless statistics

Here they are — the final stats of the entire "City of Lost Characters" forum RP — for your amusement, curiosity and enlightenment. There might be slight inaccuracies in the data. But who cares?

...this endeavour is beautifully unimportant anyway.

In calculating the above statistics, I made two important corrections.

First, all "junk posts" (useless posts such as "whoops", "wrong thread") were identified and removed from the dataset before the calculation; there was a total of 53 such posts. Hence why the total length of the roleplay is given as 30,263 posts, even though the game forum thread has 30,316 total posts.

Second, all the officially announced hiatuses (breaks in the RP) were subtracted from the total time duration; these hiatuses lasted 89 days in total. Hence why the total duration is given as 2,421 days and not 2,510.
