One of the problems of IRCs, as well as other forms of synchronous forms of communications, is that you can sometimes log into an empty room and find yourself a very lonely individual.
After monitoring CyanogenMod’s IRC for a few weeks, I’ve figured out which days are and which times see the most activity.
First, I got the figures in terms of average posts per day.
So as we can see, for some reason, Wednesdays seem to be the most active.
Then we look at each hour during the day (using GMT).
The graph shows that 8 am UK time is the worst, while 10 pm UK time sees the most activity, making it 3pm in California and 6pm in New York.
So if you have an important question, log in to the IRC Wednesday 10pm UK time.
