Hey guys, I'm still interested in compiling all that information from this thread to get a better idea of the percentage of people who are going a certain race, starting city, class, tribe, and gender.

This idea came from Sleepymagi in this thread.

Since I have nothing better to do, I'm currently just entering in all the information into an Excel spreadsheet and hoping I can compile all of it somehow later. I'm kind of a noob at Excel, so it'll be interesting.

Since there's about 3,147 responses in that thread, I'm doing one page of posts at a time using the "Show 100 posts per page" option to divide them up into 32 pages pretty neatly.

If someone would like to help (even just one page), I would really appreciate it and rate you up, too. If you do decide to...:

1. Make sure you turn on the "Show 100 posts per page" option. and go to this thread.

2. Pick out a page to do. I would really appreciate doing whole pages at a time, it can get confusing otherwise. List the page number you're wanting to do in a post in this thread so we know who's doing what. Then, post the data into this thread if you don't mind. Since I'm starting from Page 1 and working my way to the end, you guys can start from the end and work backwards to reduce the chance of overlapping with me. There are 32 pages. Don't worry if there aren't exactly 100 posts in your page. Mikhalia pointed out to me that some of them might be invisible for being invalid posts, so don't worry about it. Just collect data from all the posts that you can see on that one page.

3. This is personally how I'm initially listing them in Excel just to get the information down quickly. I'm using all the shorthand I can just to cut down the time spent recording, but you can do whatever is more comfortable for you.
Column A) Race (listing M, H, R, E, or L for each respective race)
Column B) Tribe (Hyur: Mid or High, Miqo'te: Sun or Moon, Elezen: Wild or Dusk, Lalafell: Plain or Dune, Roegadyn: Sea or ****)
Column C) Gender (Male or Female, applicable to everyone except Miqo'te, Roegadyn, and Highlander Hyurs)
Column D) Class (I am listing them by the first 3 letters of the class or, in case of a conflict, something more fitting, just use your best judgement.)
Column E) Nation (just list G, L, or U for the respective nation)
*If there are multiple answers per category, just go with the first one they said for simplicity's sake.

4. After I do that, then I use Ctrl + F to help me count everything. There are formulas to do that for you, though. I'm just not that savvy with Excel so I'm doing it the old-fashioned way.

5. List the number of posters you got data from and list the names of the posters you start and end with.

6. This is my example of posting data in this thread.

Page 1 – 98 posters 
Start: Murureru  
End: Eldiablooo 
 
Race, Tribe, Gender 
Miqo'te: 18 
(Seeker of the Sun: 3, Keeper of the Moon: 4, Unspecified: 11) 
Elezen: 13 
(Wildwood: 7, Duskwight: 3, Unspecified: 3) 
(Male: 1, Female: 0, Unspecified: 12) 
Lalafell: 28 
(Plainsfolk: 2, Dunesfolk: 8, Unspecified: 18)

*Midlanders only* (Male: 4, Female: 3, Unspecified: 7) 
Roegadyn: 13 
(Sea Wolf: 4, Hellsguard: 5, Unspecified: 4) 
 
Class

Culinarian: 1 
Unspecified: 13 
 
Nation 
Limsa Lominsa: 19 
Gridania: 59 
Ul'dah: 20


If I missed anything, just let me know.

I know that this might be labeled as a waste of time, but that's the point of this for me. Being unemployed (still actively looking for work, believe me, but it's hard right now) and bored, I thought that while I'm doing work around my house, surfing the internet, and listening to music all day, I might as well make my fingers type something while I'm at it.

I'm going to try to do at least one page a day so even if I'm the only one doing this, it'll be done before FFXIV is released.

Page Completion List:
1: Completed by me
2: Completed by me
3: Completed by me
4: *In progress by me*
6: Completed by Tweezle120
20: Completed by Sleepymagi
30: Completed by MokiSunscar

11,539 posts
A note: Any posts that did not qualify because they did not answer the question completely were nuked and are invisible. Even though it says there's 3147 posts, that includes invisible (nuked) ones.

Just thought I'd point that out that even at 100 posts per page, you may not actually see 100 posts, and that could skew your percentages.

I also don't remember what thread you're referring to, if you know the name or some exact words that were in it, I could search for it when I wake up.

g'night :)

Mikhalia: and FWIW, my posts are 95% helpful, informative, or funny.
Mikhalia: only 5% or less of my posts are utter crap.
Tyapex: 393 posts of utter crap...
Mikhalia: Sounds about right.

I could be wrong, but as long as people do their whole page and collect the data from every post that they can see, I think it would be okay.

I'll do Page 2 sometime later today.

Haha no problem. It's a pretty daunting task just doing one page, but I think I'm fast enough to do it easily now. I'll start on a couple more pages tomorrow! :]

Hah, we're so awesome. But 'm just curious to see what most people will want to play as of right now.

I also have too much time on my hands... Might as well do something, instead of lurking the forums as usual. *shrug* lol

(Thanks for helping out too, Sleepymagi! Didn't get to say thanks for your earlier thread.)
