One of the nice things about getting mail from 1500 people every week is the ability to do statistics over their mails. I’ve written a little script to analyze the distribution of mailtools among Eressea players:
Not surprisingly, Outlook Express is the most popular software. But what is surprising is the amount of web mailers that people use. They account for more than 30% of all mails, and that’s pretty surprising given that Eressea doesn’t like HTML mail and is generally a game for more tech-savvy folks.
The chart software I’m using to make these charts is OWTChart, in case you need something to generate charts for web pages, this one gets a recommendation from me. And I’m pretty happy with how those pastel colors turned out 🙂
