Well give me one year and I'll be at 10 000 in all those, since I already have the B/P ( ....)
Make the total points go:
((total xp time 3) + ( total posts times 2) + ( Total b/p) ) divided by 3.
because xp is the longest and hardest to get, so its worth more, posts are just as hard to get, but you're not limited, so its easier and you can get like 100 B/p per day so they should be worth the least.
It might tend to be that way, but you need look no further than the post above yours to see an exception already:

It's funny that I'm equ-distant away from all three catergories...I figure I'll get 10000 posts first....then probably....exp, since I = teh sux at B/P...
you see, poxy? Dobio seems to have far less problem getting posts and exp than he does getting blams and protects, so... the 3xEXP, 2xPOSTS, 1xB/P method you lay out would reward him in an unbalanced fashion.
The truth of the matter is that not everyone applies equal effort into getting exp, posts, and b/p, as you yourself are a great example of. You're adding plenty of exp and posts, but no b/p. Same as Dobio, only you have a larger base of b/p already present.
Anyway, just as there are people with no posts but plenty of exp and b/p, there are people with tons of exp, 0 b/p, and anywhere from no posts to a bunch (just look at half the top 50 exp list) and tons of people with a bazillion posts but no exp and varying levels of b/p (biteme rings a bell).
The three stats are so apples and oranges that even combining them at all like I've done is this topic is kinda stupid, but I just wanted to mass all the numbers together. If you start multiplying here and handicapping there, it totally removes the much more transparent process of simply adding them and turns it into some weird ass stat along the lines of WH/IP combined with ERA in baseball or something.
so... anyone's free to make a weighted version of this list, or just weight their own stats, but whenever I finally get around to updating this again, I don't think I'll be changing the basic formula of A + B + C = D. It's just simple.
And anyway, this is all just a lark, just a curiosity. I take it nowhere near as seriously as I take my other lists (blams, saves, and VP).
