Stats and Fun Facts, but differently
I used to do weekly posts on General Stats, Fun Facts, and Financial Stats. It was fun to do, fun to see the changes, but it was also a lot of work. Partly because I was too lazy to adjust the code, partly because I already had other plans which made every adjustment to the code a waste of time.
Recently I started adding stats to http://whaleshares.nl. It is not a secure connection yet, but also doesn't have any option for you to provide (sensitive) information, other than an accountname. So there is no danger of exposing information.
Although there is still a lot to do, now is a good time to test it, see if it can handle some traffic.
You can check:
- Witness Votes
(rank, number of voters, and so on)
- Account Information
(name, reputation, posts, (proxy) witness votes, and so on)
- Rich & (in)Famous
(a top 25 listing of accounts that hold Whalestake/WLS)
More features will be added to the above mentioned stats, but also new stats.
- (in)Active Followers
- Max reward
- Stats on the Blockchain in general
Further away Future
Due to growth of the blockchain, it will get harder to query for information in a timely fashion. A switch to querying a database, instead of the blockchain directly, will then be made.

Use your witness votes wisely
Jump over to the Block Producer / Witness page and cast your witness votes. Simply click on the (^) up arrow next to the witness names of your choice (mine would be "ijmmaiwitness") and supply your private active key to lock in your vote. Refresh the page in case your vote doesn't seem to stick.
