Description

Roger says he wants an attribution on the graphs we provide on the metrics portal. How about the line "The Tor Project - https://metrics.torproject.org/" below the x axis? See https://metrics.torproject.org/bridge-users-graphs.html for an example?

Looks like a great start. Better than what we do now I think.

If we want it to be even better, we should try to snuggle the text up to the graph more, and make it look less like a caption.

Compare to the EFF logo in https://www.torproject.org/images/htw2.png
or the much more subtle RRDTOOL label on http://oss.oetiker.ch/rrdtool/stream-pop.png

If it's okay as a start, I'll do it for all our graphs for now.

I agree it's not perfect. I looked at ggplot2 some more, but it looks like it's not straightforward to add either a logo or some text to the plot margin. I'll have a look at the ggplot2 book and maybe ask on the R-help mailing list. It might be necessary to implement such a feature in ggplot2 first.

I looked more into this and it seems we'll have to bypass ggplot2 and manipulate plot rendering with the R package grid. How ugly. Let's not do that and just live with the attribution in the x axis caption. Closing as wontfix. Roger, please re-open if you disagree.
