At moment, except on inital installation, rarely are statistics sent. When they are sent the information they provide us with, is, for the most part, quite useless.
- Add more items that are helpful such as the list of activated (or installed) styles, the default style and the list of uploaded (or installed or enabled) extensions to the send statistics
- Remove many un-needed config values
- Offer the cron to send statistics
- Send the board start date
It would enable us to see the usage of how many sites use custom styles other than prosilver, how many sites still use subsilver2 despite being decapreated, how popular extensions are proving to be, as well as providing us with information like the most used extensions/styles and a host of other reasons that can be utilised once its been added.
Why - Offer cron
This means stats are sent often (as the content may be updated often). It also means that it isn't just run at installation which most likely happens for most installs.
Why - Board Start Date
To give an indication on if its a new board (just been installed) and therefore settings won't have been set yet and extensions/styles not installed.
Why - Remove un-needed config values
To remove the clutter and items that might confuse the board admin as to what data is being sent.
