What a fantastic idea! Love it! I think it would be awesome if everyone (big and small) did this.

I'll be adding this to my site alongside my /open page. I can see how this will increase transparency and help anyone who's curious to know what makes us tick.

Thanks! What is the /open page used for?

The /open page is used for transparency in stats, metrics, traffic, and whatever data you collect on your users.

My page isn't up right now, but the /open page is basically a dashboard for the entire site, instead of individual users.

Nice! I'd imagine these would be great programming challenges so you could hook that page to your metrics backend or even provide an GET /open API route which would return the collected data in JSON or other machine-readable format.

Hmm. Well, this is above my understanding. Though, I will refer back to this after getting my site up and running.

Thanks for the input. I can kinda imagine how I would build that page now.

Here's a mock up of my /open page. Now I'm working on a /uses page.
