Wednesday word clouds – 2012 activity on the Softimage mailing list

Two word clouds to help visualize the activity on the Softimage mailing list during 2012: who was posting, and what were they posting about?

What were the popular topics?
Note that I removed “Softimage”, which was by far the most common word in the post titles (aka Subject), but which doesn’t really indicate the topic of discussion.

Who was active on the list?
There were approximately 450 different people who posted during 2012. This word cloud shows the 100 top names, so assuming most people have no middle names, this is more-or-less the 50 most active posters on the list.
