Lesson #1: Probably shouldn't have named it Shittalk Generator. It's hard to tell your family what it is. "Well... it's a script to shittalk people". Maybe I would have named it the Trash Talk Generator, in restrospect

You can track the actual commits I made on Github, you'll see the progression in pagesize.

Wow. 

140,000+ total upvotes/downvotes in five days.

 

I released the Shittalk Generator on Saturday, January. 2nd. It's Jan 7th now. Here are some stats over the first 5 days.

As of this writing:

Total Votes 140,570
Total Submissions 4,304
Total Deletions 3,745
Top Rated (+5 net votes and above) 311
Avg Votes / Insult 168
Config Downloads 1,606

A few things are clear. Firstly, holy hell, look at the total votes! People love sitting on the page voting on new content - awesome!

Secondly - It's very easy to get voted off. It's very hard to be a top insult.

And lastly, there are a lot of people in the world who are bad at insulting others. :)
