To prevent confusion and rioting in the populace, I will note that that's only inf gained since the move to Invision, as evinced by how that says you have 394 while you actually have 459. 😛

I have no idea how that happened, but if it's going to take a riot to get it changed, well, call me.  I am, after all, a red-sider at heart.

.... OTOH, I am #3 overall, even including pre-move INF. 😄

I question the credibility of any list that has me so high on it.

I know, right?!? 😄

Ugh...this job is getting in the way of me making it on the leaderboard!!!  I've got to get on the ball!  

 

Kids can just teach themselves while I forum it up, right?

Naw!  What's really standing in your way is the fact that Devs have an inherent buff, where they are able to create a single post that automatically gets maximum attention due to the source, and if universally popular, maximum inf generated per minute. Imagine the theoretical skyrocketing numbers for the Dev that gets to post the announcement of a successful deal!  There would be no catching him!🤣

You can have the kids create accounts and like all your posts and grade them on it so you can say it was for educational purposes. The lesson can be about thinking outside the box or efficient use of resources. In this context the kids being a resource.

The "Dev Buff" (as it will come to be known) is a compensator for a proportionally low post count vs. inf gained ratio.  So, when one has a 1k+ post count (like yourself), the law of averages alone dictates that enough of them should have been interesting/compelling/entertaining/endearing to a sufficient percentage of forum participants, who in-turn, reward them, so as to ensure you are safely ensconced in the top 5 in perpetuity.  Over time, one would expect that to continue, or even rise if the deal is successful, and the population rises dramatically; thereby potentially providing even more fertile ground on which to base future discussions.

 

That's how I explain you. 😎

 

**I say all of this while questioning my own standing, because I don't consider myself that interesting in my forum banter, and yet, I find myself gaining some standing here as well.  So, it's obvious I'm no expert.

Indeed, you're at about a 75% rate, compared to my just-over-45% rate.  🙂

I think we need a metric that looks at your rating vs total number of posts.
This has nothing to do with the fact that I'm currently at 79 rep out of 101 posts (counting this one).

If I start seeing multiple accounts showing 100% inf to post ratio, I'm gonna be just a bit suspicious as to the reasons. 😉

I prefer my clubs to have high standards.

Yup!  Its a litmus test of their perception, and standards of which they are typically unaware.  If I get in, you need to seriously look at heightening both, and quickly!  Of course, by then, it's too late, but that works for me! 🤣

Bill it as a lesson in how Sweatshops operate.

 

By, you know, running one.  😄
