That's the question. Is there data that shows when the number of users at any given time of the day (say over a 1 hour period) is the most?

Total number of posts (both questions and answers counted) by hour of the day. Note that StackExchange servers operate on UTC.

posts by hour

Number of posts by hour and day of week, also UTC.

day of week

  • $\begingroup$ There are patterns there. Although not shown, I guess questions are mostly asked during working hours and answers are mostly posted off-work? $\endgroup$
