Awesome work! I remember when Ivan mentioned your project to me. Really cool to see it come to fruition. I like the idea of a central data repository and would benefit from it. I think that having an accompanying visualisation like this could add value to the annual EA survey data.
I also think that creating data visualisations could also help to increase the dissemination and impact of EA research. I'd like to see more work there too.
Thanks, this was particularly useful for me!

This seems like a well-intentioned but poorly executed post. It sounds like an advertisement for a very niche opportunity. You don't explain the opportunity very clearly and the post doesn't flow very well.
I have posted similar things in the past and they were relatively poorly received. I think that forum readers want generally want something that is either insightful/helpful and/or of general interest.
In future, you might want to consider asking for feedback on a draft to check the reading experience.
I hope this helps - I know it is annoying when you get downvotes without feedback. Thank you for taking the time to share this regardless :)
Thanks for this this, it is useful information.
30% of IPWs follow at least one EA-adjacent influencer.
This is more than I would have expected so I am quite pleased!
Great work Kuhan, both overall and with this post! Thank you for taking the time to do it.
Thanks Chana - I had a look but I think that the videos on this channel are a bit too technical and diverse for me to add to the spreadsheet.
I am weakly in favour. In short: I agree with the downsides raised. However, I think (partly from my research about website design) that pictures of people usually lead to audiences feeling a better connection and more willingness to collaborate. I think that that that benefit would outweigh the downsides.
I can't imagine any social networking service working well without profile pictures. I think the forum is in part a social networking service to connect EAs around similar ideas with the hope that they communicate and work together.
I'd use/appreciate this I think.
Same. Useful also from an org impact perspective. E.g., over x people have viewed our posts (might be combined with website views etc)
