    This seeming, infatuation with numbers is a puzzle to me.
    If all of the numbers disappeared we could say "So what!".

    Don't have a wide enough sample at present, but it appears that it's a bit like baseball.

    Your numbers aren't bad at all.

    Irrelevantly--if your numbers are any indicator. As are a good many of the sour pusses.

    And that makes me feel...better about the state of things.

    How do the Open Theism threads, part 1 and 2 stack up? How about an OSAS or MAD thread? Or maybe being MAD about OSAS

    One of the encouraging things I'm seeing/learning is that the low blow champs, while found everywhere, don't actually tend to generate many posts and don't do especially well at even drawing interest where they're the thread starters. Oh, they'll find a topic or two, but on average it's a little weak.

    That should make you feel better about the state of the place and about your TOL neighbor.

    It doesn't seem like who is posting, but what the subject is.

    I have started 21 threads since June 2006. None of them had more than 100 replies.

    Which means I.... totally suck or... something? What's this really about, anyway?

    It's exactly what I said it is. I wanted to find a way to look at relevance that wasn't your rep number, a number rather easily manipulated. What can't be as easily manipulated is interest expressed in the threads.

    What I'm finding is that people who are less interested in mud rolling are fairing better, are in terms of drawing interest and response, a much more important number in the life of the community, the real engine that pushes this machine. That's good news.


    As for you...Your sample is small. Look at the emerging average from those who have 100 threads or better and you'll see that even at the high end the percent of threads drawing over 100 posts in response is typically under 40%, meaning that 60% of those 100 threads, while they might be drawing over 1000 views often enough, don't generate much responsive heat.

    So if you only have twenty something threads you might be within that larger sampling. That is, if you had 100 threads under your belt your numbers would likely improve significantly.
