The next iteration of our stats dashboard is coming soon. There'll be new addition for both free and Plus users, the latter of which will form the bulk of the transitioning of Plus to an "Advanced Stats" package.
I would like graphic novels/manga to be more easily filtered. When I look at my monthly stats it always says I read a lot of <300 books, when most of those are manga or graphic novels. I'm more interested in the length of the novels I read, so an easy way to filter those out would be nice.
Hi! Not sure if this is considered a new feature so please let me know so I can post it properly but...
It would be nice to have a list of books whenever I hover on a specific datapoint in the stats (for example: mood in the mood pie chart). Or upon click, a "pane" can slide in from the right to give me a list of books.
Current behavior is that I need to click the pie/mood and it will take me to a page with the list of books for that mood. There's no way to open that page to a different browser tab (tried right clicking and cmd + clicking) so it always overrides the Stats page which is cumbersome when I just want to quickly see what makes up a specific datapoint :)
I hope I made sense!
thisbookbelongstopam You sure did! I love this idea for a potential UX improvement. It'll unlikely make it into Stats V4, but perhaps one for a future iteration, or just as part of some UX improvement work!
Wondering if this could be considered for the stats update? https://roadmap.thestorygraph.com/requests-ideas/posts/add-plot-character-a-mix-driven-stats-to-yearly-monthly-stats-an
maddychance Hi Maddy! We've already finalised what's going in to Stats V4 so unlikely, but we'll consider it for a future round for sure. We're always working on the stats. On your page for your post, can you please explain a little more about what you imagine it looking like? Thank you!
I would love it if page length (and audiobook length) had different buckets for short stories vs shorter novels/novellas. I feel like there's a big difference between reading a 10 page short story and a 270 page book. Maybe aim for a split around 17,500 words, to match the Hugo novella/novelette split?
(I'm not sure if this request should be a post here or a separate suggestion - happy to move if requested)
hwesta Noted! There's this post: https://roadmap.thestorygraph.com/requests-ideas/posts/add-100-pgs-or-less-to-pg-pie-chart
Nadia Thanks, commented over there
Would you also consider using a fixed scale for the x-axis (ratings) of the Star ratings graph? So that if my ratings of 5 books are [1 star, 4.25, 4.5, 4.75, 5], it will show that my ratings are leaning high overall, rather than just five equally spaced columns. Thanks!
Emily Yes, we'll consider that for sure!
I love the new DNF stats! The only thing I'm missing is being able to see them for a specific year rather than for all DNF'd books ever. I think it would be cool to see how DNF stats change over time (do you DNF more/less, faster/slower, etc).
Hooray! Will it the new stats dashboard make it possible to see our stats as line graphs showing change month to month? I’d love that! WAY better than comparing side-by-side bar graphs from one month to the next :)
ryanlee Hello! That's not part of the proposed changes at the moment but could be a future development!
