Some basic MOCpages statistics... updated for 2018 first 6 months.
These were produced by a team of magical elves at great expense.
The stats were primarily for my own curiosity and to see how active MOCpages still is but I figured I may as well post them here for all to see.
Note this data isn't live: except for "Total MOCs" the data for any given year is based on when that year was sampled (mostly 2018) so won't include MOCs/users that were deleted before the sample and will include MOCs/users that have since been deleted.
Sadly quite a number of users chose to delete their account when they left, rather than preserving their legacy for the enjoyment of others.
Also, the elves don't consider MOCs that have no main picture.
MOC ratings change over time too, and anything based on "likes" could also be skewed by spamming, and Jedi mind tricks.

Is it possible to see the Top 10 highest scoring MOCs to see where I fit in with the scores even though I would not be in the top 10?
Haven't done all years or decided whether to include links to a top 100 posted offsite yet, but for now your positions are: 2013:2679th(moc)/31st(user), 2014:1785th/5th, 2015:56th/2nd, 2016:92nd/2nd, 2017:173rd/9th, 2018:330th/113th. Your 2015:56th was of course your "Under Construction 65" MOC (which I've just looked at and realised you are the spitting image of someone, just trying to work out who the someone is now...)

I left for Flickr after the servers were flooded by Hurricane Sandy, which made the site extremely unreliable. And additionally there were a slew of inappropriate ads that the mods would not fix.
I remember both well. The hurricane is mentioned on the old Facebook page. I added data for 2013, and you made the top 10 :)

I love a good stat attack, even if the results are kind of what we'd expect... thanks for posting.
Yes, the overall trend was always going to be blatantly obvious, but I was at least surprised to see at least 653 builders posting this year so far, since I was expecting it to be nearer 250. Was also interesting to see the points success of Oliver Becker in recent years, and the vast number of MOCs posted by Murdoch who nearly managed 1 every day (on average) in 2016, and interesting to see which of the earliest users were still around.
