Oh! Thanks, @GoldbergData @linuxenko (nice job by the way! You got a follower!) - be aware I don't consider myself an expert but probably that is a better reason my experience might be important to some.


@huyingjie

Please don't think I don't have any interest in outliers.
One thing that could happen is that people copied and pasted automated messages.

However I went through some messages showing outlying behaviour just now and found that could be related to other factor too.

Although crowded, the actual number of seriously seriously engaged participants in the chat is not thaaaat big. The very engaged participants have been the main drivers of the characteristics of the messages and the topics.

One clear example is @abhisekp who was very very active in FCC and the chatroom and was a frequent emojier. He is, according to my list, one of the first "outliers". @CEREBR4L has been another one. There are some more.

They also served as moderators of the room and sometimes and more specially @abhisekp they used emojis to indicate the importance of the message they were posting (something new I am learning here thanks to your question, @huyingjie!!!).

I haven't seen all messages so I can't completely confirm this, but the few I checked suggested so.

This might require a deeper analysis for sure. Do you want to do that, @huyingjie? ;)

And welll... this is going to prove as a true trend... The list of those that made the top 5 at least once (:tada:!!!):

  • :balloon:
    *:worried:
  • :trollface:
  • :blush:

Some of them could have made the top 5 probably once. I haven't seen when - context could be relevant. But in general:

  • Why ballon, I don't know.
  • I saw the moderators and engaged ones using point_up, sparkles, stars, cookies and warnings a lot more than average (not totally checked I am afraid).
  • trollface is very much a popular one in the chatroom IMO.
  • The rest are popular on their own.

Looking at this, it might be that moderators could have had a larger impact than I was expecting and that there is a widespread use of "freecodecamp-branded" emojis (stars, sparkles, cookies, etc).

This, assuming that the list and counts are both correct (:scream:).

By getting rid of possible emojis that were "freecodecamp-branded", those which stood to the podium of the top5 were:

  • :sweat_smile:
  • :laughing:
  • :point_right:
  • :fire:
  • :shipit:
  • :pencil:
  • :wave:
  • :coffee:
  • :8ball:

  • :point_up:
  • :eyes:
  • :thumbsup:
  • :balloon:
  • :worried:
  • :bulb:
  • :trollface:
  • :blush:

I think fire should be in the "freecodecamp-branded" list. Hmmm... Anyway.

Still ballon??? Why???
Anyway I am not doing this here any more. Right to the analysis, the article and the visualizations then.
But the list... Toooootally different to what I had before and what I was expecting to see, to be honest.
Interesting.

@becausealice2 @mstellaluna for what do you think people used :ballon:and :8ball: in the chat? What is the underlying meaning of those two?
mstellaluna
@mstellaluna
@evaristoc hehehe eightball is camperbot
evaristoc
@evaristoc
By the way: : coffee: is part of the top5 list in this case, @mstellaluna
In what sense?
mstellaluna
@mstellaluna
its one of camperbots commands
eightball hello

@camperbot
@mstellaluna :8ball: concentrate and ask again :sparkles:

@evaristoc
Ok, so it is also an outlier. Ok. For some reason I am not being able to get rid of all camperbot messages then.
Hmmm...
mstellaluna
@mstellaluna
we use 8ball a lot in the main room for stupid questions
lol

My script is not capturing all camperbot messages, I am afraid.
mstellaluna
@mstellaluna
ballon is used in answer to a question like "is there a web designer floating around in here"
they answer with a balloon
evaristoc
@evaristoc
:):):):)
Great, because there is also a sort of emoji-slang...
That is more or less what I want to capture with this project, @mstellaluna
mstellaluna
@mstellaluna
Cerebe4ul is the king of emoji communication :)
evaristoc
@evaristoc
If there is a sort of fCC way of using them.
mstellaluna
@mstellaluna
what do you mean?
