Check out these promotion zone forecasts for some URL communities posted on the BUPERS site.

Wondering if something similar exists for IW or the IDC in general...

Doesn't seem particularly useful or informative.

For career planning purposes it is nice to know when the forecast puts you in zone.

Sure, but recent history has shown the community will flex to stay healthy, so a forecast of 4+ years (the amount of time it would have to be projected out to help you plan your billet assignments) is tenuous, at best. And in reality we all know that the most likely flowpoints are only going to adjust +/- 1 year from historical norms, unless one of those unforecastable events occurs.

I guess I don't see how it's useful. Trying to game the system using tools like this seems like a waste of time and energy.
