Who's answering who?

I thought it would be cool to capture some statistics on who is following up to who. Something like scanning for signatures and assuming that the person who replies is replying directly to the person (or all people) above. I'd use GraphViz to represent the output to this.

Then doing a time-based study to gather on which topics the interactions are taking place, and then to visualise this somehow, maybe using a scattergraph.

a couple of months back there was an article about some IBM research were they were analysing topic change histories (of a bug wiki) and displaying that as a graph.. i think i've lost the link, but when i go home i'll see if i can dig it up.

damned interesting stuff though.

What about a QuestionAndAnswerPlugin, wherein you define a question (or questions) and then have an answer section that traps the sig. Have some different answer types so one can be set as the "accepted" answer; not unlike what you see in those support forums out on the net.

For instance,

<question>Is this how I ask a question with QA format?</question>
<answer>Sort of. -- Jimmy</answer>
<answer accepted=1>Yes! -- Donald</answer>

Then it would be easy to have a who answered who plugin because the question and answers would be structured. You could even so some simple searches to pull up all of a user's answers (or questions) and more.
