    Actually, I had done a number of numbers before I got to mine. It started with Sky taking a weak shot at my Quixote thread. That got me thinking about relevance and if we had to rest on the rep/popularity number. So I took a look at her thread performance. And that encouraging number led me to others.

    You did better as Sod. Your current numbers, if they hold, are pretty weak, though Sod wasn't lighting up the boards either, except as a post contributor.

    The numbers are what they are, though a few people are going to be surprised by someone I haven't set out yet.

    Stay tuned.

    Like him or not, that's the top of the response prompting chart and really solid on the number of views.

    Sorry, I don't think there's much to read into these numbers overall. There are so many various possible reasons for them, and they're so dependent on the individuals.

    And the topics that interest TOL members. Members tend to be attracted to controversy.

    We disagree. It doesn't tell you much about quality, but it does tell you which posters are on average sponsoring more interest, active or other. The trick is to realize, as in baseball and basketball that relatively low percentages can still represent significant achievement. Where .500 is fantastic play a .350 average isn't to be sneezed at, by way of example.

    Well, it's not a number that reflects more than people's willingness to engage and/or read his threads. Apparently he draws, for whatever reason. Some people have a knack for creating threads that interest viewers without drawing in a lot of posting activity. Some manage both. It varies. I'm just looking at an average and giving people something other than the rep number to consider.

    I'll be looking for a rough average at some point, with a plus/minus.

    That could be the new TOL motto.

    Now back to your thread about curing cancer or solving world hunger. Well, when you get through with that "I just saw The Hobbit" thread then.

    So the numbers are slight, but not when you look at the percentages.
