Have you ever pressed an elevator button more in the hope that it would go faster? A street crossing button?
I do that all the time, even though rationally I know that there is no connection between the two. It’s probably the same part of my brain that sometimes buys a lotto ticket when I fill up my car.
Here on WordPress.com I did the same thing, but on the stats screen. Sometimes there would be a bump in the stats and I was curious to what I owed the good fortune, yet I would click and click and click on the chart and nothing happened.
I like to imagine that a lot of you were also clicking on that chart hoping for something to happen, and that we had some sort of magic machine that could collect all the futile clicks and count them as votes. Luckily though we have a benevolent dictatorship here so there’s no need to vote, and when you click the chart it now does something.
The something it does is take you to a page that shows the stats just for the day you clicked on so you can see your top referrers, posts, clicks, everything you see on the normal page, just expanded.
We also tidied up the spacing on the tables and cleaned up the styling a little bit.
