I totally appreciate your work in sifting through these posts and being a conduit between us users and the developers. Thank you.
In reference to your comment about about supposed improvements in the new stats over the old stats:
- clicking on the "bars" for more data (vs just hovering over them for a little info)
That is not an improvement because it isn't a new feature.
That functionality was there in the old stats as well, I used it frequently. Yes, hovering on a bar in the day's graph gave you a bit of extra data as a pop-up, and sometimes that was all I wanted.
But clicking on the bar brought up a whole page of data for that day, just as it does now.
There is one improvement on that page in the new stats - now the country info is listed on that page as well as the posts, clicks, and referrers. In the old stats, country info was not available for past days, only for the present day (though the cumulative totals of past days were available in the summaries link within the current day's country section).
That is indeed an improvement, and I thank the developers for it.
It's the only improvement I've noted in the new stats.
Your other listed improvements are ones I'm not aware of, will try to go back to the stats page and see what they are. More consistent with WP apps I'll assume is true, but I don't remember ever having a problem viewing comments before. I don't have likes enabled on my blog so that is irrelevant to me. The Insights page seemed so devoid of anything interesting that I immediately bookmarked the Days page to avoid having to land on Insights. I'll go back and check it to see if it's improved somehow...
Re @nickpmacdonald's first three posts here - I don't understand why you asked him to be more specific? He actually gave quite specific examples both in words and with an excellent visual comparison. I agree with all of his detailed comparisons between the old stats' graph and the graph in the new stats, and his visual comparison illustrates them perfectly.
