Anyway, ever since 2010 I have been bothered by just how many projects are completed vs how many projects were started and were never finished.
This study aims to answer the following:
Scope>completed projects vs dropped projects
>completed projects vs on-production projects
>Completed Projects vs on-hiatus projects
>most common genre of projects
>most uncommon genre of projects
>average posts per view
more questions to be asked as more data are gathered.
I might sort this things out by year so for now I will study year 2013.
quantitative data needed for this projects is easily provided by the tallies on each forum/sub-forum. The hard part would be sorting each thread and it's content . I might as well lessen the scope to make things easier.
Anyway I will post the results of the study here when it's done. Feel free to add questions/problems as long as the search engine can give me results to sort out.
I'm doing this as a pastime.
