Statistical information on userpics

Statistical information on userpics

Short, concise description of the idea
Add how often and how recently you've used each userpic somewhere the user can see it.

Full description of the idea
This is a re-submission of a suggestion from 2005: Statistical information on icons? by tsgeisel.

Much like the user stats on the profile page, it would be handy to have "Number of times used" and "Date last used" listed next to the userpics on the edit or upload page and maybe also on the display all page, perhaps invisible to others if users feel there's a privacy issue.

While it would be great to have a huge overhaul to userpic management (sorting, mass uploading, etc.) this would be something simpler that we should be able to have now since the statistics are already kept in order to delineate inactive userpics.

Ideally, I'd like the stats to include usage off of my journal in addition to my entries, but I don't know if those numbers are currently available.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Easier to decide which icons to remove when you've reached your limit
  • Statistics are fun!
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • More work for developers
  • Data needs to be there and in good condition and if it isn't, a decision has to be made how long to collect and clean it before displaying the statistic
