Hello guys,
Im just looking on those graphs every week because I want to see how is WoW population active. So Why are those graphs updated so slowly, there is only 3rd week of May updated. It had been updated every week till now. Any technical problems?

Thanks

April 5th of this year is not a year ago,
Please look at your linked page again... it clearly states that specific graph is currently offline

and as noted in my post linked above..
the work to make the graph function (correctly) again, is at a lower priority behind other more important changes that need to be taken care of first.

ok.. here is the latest on this issue.

The batch process was turned back on... but the problems still exist.

of the three graph images that are made:
the Daily activity mostly works.. and where there is a problem you can figure it out by looking at the data table.

The Weekly activity (in reality should be labeled Class activity) graph could be considered fine... but it is far two cluttered.. and I have suggested that it be split into 2 graphs.. tracking 11 classes is just too messy.
Half the time I can't tell which class I am looking at..

The Weekly faction activity graph has issues with the graphing calls.. at least for me, both IE and firefox have a label overlaying the latest data.

AND ALL of the graphs have problems due to lack of data.
to see what I mean look at the following US realms:
Area 52 - currently a very poorly covered realm
Bonechewer - currently an average covered realm
Argent Dawn - one of the best covered realms.. except it isn't
and compare to all realms.

the graphing code is a standard 3rd party solution for websites using php scripting language.
Like all graphing solutions.. how it works depends on the quality and quantity of the data it has to work with.

Compare the 3 suggested realms.. you will see each has a different time line for the horizontal axis.
This is because all of the realms have missing data.

If you go back to the daily graph on Bonechewer and look at the chart you will see many prime time hours have less then 7 census runs.
This means it is not possible for any of these realms to have sufficient data to generate valid data graphs.. they look good but are telling a false story.

Argent Dawn which is currently our best realm.. unfortunately has the coverage outside of prime time (on the realm).
