Can you circle from every user in NG, just using fans? EX. Like can you go from say provoke to goryblizzard, then ever user and then back to provoke? Let's not count users without fans.

If you didn't understand the question don't hesitate to ask because it was worded weirdly

Probably not.
I have certain users that I'm fond of, but I kind of hope that my profile isn't indirectly connected to EVERYONE.
Not that it would really matter.

Definitely not, as there are plenty of accounts that are completely without fans and who are also not fans of anyone. This subject is very awkward to word correctly.


It made more sense in my head.

I think my brain died a little from me trying to understand what you were saying.

I believe it's possible. If you don't include fanless accounts.

Statistically, yes. In reality, no. For there must be at least one unconnected user in any given time. Assuming the chance for a NGer to be the fan of another is p, and assuming there are n NGers, then the possibility for one NGer to be disconnected is P(He is a fan of nobody and nobody is a fan of him)=[(1-p)^n-1][(1-p)^n-1]=(1-p)^2n-2. The probability there is at least one (k=1, ... , n) Sigma([{(n+1-k) above (n-1)}(-1)^k+1]P(N are fans of nobody and nobody is a fan of N).

This may or may not be correct.

Seems correct. I actually understand it.....although it is a bit confusing how it was typed.

I am not used to typing, I handwrite it usually. You notice I simplified the question, since many factors are active. If someone had acess to the whole databse (and a lot of sparetime) an extrapolation could've been made.

I doubt it, because different people have different types of fans. And what about all the users with just one or two fans with no fans, it would be a dead end.

Also, was going to say, most users don't even have fans...

Right on, though you only click on fans, no other links. The difficulty level in this is way higher!
