Popularity rating? 2001-10-29 13:25:19 Reply

I was looking at my public profile and I noticed a "popualrity" category. I'm ranked in the upper 3000's out of 50,000. My friend, who is like one level below me, is in the 48,000's. And then, to top it off, I saw a guy who is in level 2 and he's in the 1,800's. So, my question is what is popularity based off of? Reviews? Number of times someone looks at your profile?

Well apparently, popularity is based on how many hits your profile gets. Heh.. Now I don't feel so bad being in the 300's.

I'm pretty sure it is. I don't have that many posts at all, but I have a popular game. I'm the one that came up with the profile-hits theory, and it seems to be pretty accurate.

Click my profile to see how popular I am.

Order you're right. It's the amount profile hits you recieve a day on average.

As far as I'm aware, it's the number of hits your profile gets...

So the best way to increase popularity is to write a lot posts and reviews so people will be tempted to look at the profile? Can anyone else confirm this?

Well, to create a name for yourself. Make yourself famous or -- even better -- infamous. The clock crew and my brother are ranked crazy high.

Or you could upload a naked picture of a pretty girl on your profile... then let the horny teenage boys send you straight to number one.

I think the best way to increase popularity is to post your picture all over the BBS.

Holy crap. All this time I had a silly picture of myself in my profile. I see the error of my ways...
