Useless Stats is a simple wordpress plugin that collects a bunch of general trivia about posting frequency and comment frequency. The current version is 1.21, which can be downloaded here. Just extract the file from the zip and place it into your /wp-content/plugins/ folder. Then just go to the plugins admin page and enable the plugin. All done. Enjoy.
Once Useless Stats is installed, a small summary of comment and posting data is displayed on the dashboard:
A more detailed collection of data can be found under the management tab in WordPress admin. This data provides charts that will show the number of comments per post by category and by day. It will show the breakdown of posting by day-of-week and by month, along with other data. An example of these charts can be seen here.
Finally, the plugin offers some HTML that you can cut & paste into your blog posts (or wherever else you like) so that you can show your data to others.
This plugin has not been tested with versions of WordPress before 2.0, and it is not known if it will work or not.
Suggestions or feedback welcome.

Both a celebration and an evisceration of tabletop roleplaying games, by twisting the Lord of the Rings films into a D&D game.
