add to statistics plugin a visualization of deck growth over time, split by grades
> And finally, here are the results:
> The stacked bars show the total cards in my “deck,” broken down by rating. As you can see, I was adding 20-80 cards every day for twenty days, about a chapter a day, and when I finished the book, the last ten days were just spent reviewing cards. You can see at the end that according to my own target of 4 or better, I had learned well over 500 new German words by the end of the month. And I knew these words outside the context of these drills, recognized many of them in other settings, and even managed to use a few in everyday conversation.

I had to record that data every day in Excel and make it myself. You can get “snapshot” charts in the app, but not time-oriented ones, which are a better motivator.
The current statistics plugin can show you cards added per day, and it
can show you grade breakdown over the entire deck, but it can't show
you anything similar to that PNG with the growth of your deck and the
growth of 4/5 cards over time.

I wrote a raw plugin with text output for this yesterday. I'll add graphs when I figure out the API.

Note that this is basically a superset of request "Statistics tab for "how many cards memorized"" http://mnemosyne.uservoice.com/forums/164265-general/suggestions/2910743-statistics-tab-for-how-many-cards-memorized-
Perhaps this should be implemented as a plugin - so only those who want the stats will need to go through the expense. I really like the idea though
Unfortunately, this suggestion does not improve the Operational Efficiency or User Friendliness.
Considering Peter's response "... Could be quite expensive to generate these statistics..", it seems to me that the benefits of the request is not commensurate with the cost.
