Anyway, getting 50+ posts in one day is entirely doable. Not 7 days in a row, perhaps, but...good fucking luck. Its 10x easier to get 100b/p per day than it is to get 50 post per day.
Not for me, strangely enough. I hardly ever get over 100 b/p a day, and I get b/p EVERY freakin' day. I tend to average between 50 and 75, and even getting near the 75 end of that is hard for me.
The problem is that when you're waiting for new things to hit the portal (especially late at night, when I'm usually awake and on NG the most often), you're completely at the authors' mercy. If no one's submitting flashes, you're shit outta luck.
With posting, you decide when to post, where to post, how many to get, how long to make them. If I didn't make such long ass posts, and sometimes reply to 2 or 3 people in one post, I'd probably break 50 ppd more often. I've had a couple of 100 ppd days back in October when I was first modded, and just this past week I've averaged around 33 ppd.
one thing about posts is that they truly are unlimited, as long as you don't get banned.they are limited by time, subjects of conversation and bannage. And by that, they become more limited than blam/protects
Like I said, they're not that limited. Especially if you go to all the different forums. Even just saying good stuff and not random spamming, you could find 5 good political threads to comment on, find a few clubs to say hi, I like this, too or something in, find a few threads here on WIHT, find like 20 threads on General to say something in on just the first couple pages alone, go to flash and programming, etc. etc.
If you type fast, think fast, and can find the right rhythm and not get too pissed off about errors and shit, you could EASILY post 100 posts per day without running out of things to say or getting banned.
But when you're sitting, waiting for b/p, it all depends on time of day, how many authors are submitting, and so forth. You're WAY more limited with b/p.
So, if I WERE to weight the list, it would be 3x exp, 1x b/p, 0.5x posts, probably.nah this is teh sucks. Posts are definately above b/p, and reviews above posts, and exp above all.
To me, this would be like an overall vet level kinda thing.
It's too much like a quarterback rating in the NFL. All this complicated multiplier shit. Ehhh. #;-}>
I order you to take it somewhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *aggitates power staff*
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).
Yep, unless you add-in posts, bps and reviews. Then it changes quite a bit, but of course the people with more exp are advantaged ( and rightly so). I mean 10k exp is worth 3 years dammit, while 30k b/p is worth only a year.
now that is very very true. Well, for the highest bpers at least. I've gotten... oh, about 24,000 bp in the time I got 3,650 exp.
hold on right there. I said for him it would be worth LESS, not more. I think you need to reread what I said. I was jokingly saying that b/p would count for LESS for fixit, to penalise him for not posting any, and having relatively low exp.I know fewel. JOO r teh assklown JOO are teh must DIYE rite nowe!
If you know, then why did you misinterpret me in the first place, EH?!!?!? #;-}>
GET ON THAT LIST RIGHT NOW MISTER!!!
I find it incredibly ironic that you, of all people, who makes fun of many of my stat addictions, and probably wouldn't care less if I never updated my top 50 b and p lists again... you are begging/trying to order me to update the list right now. I did my top 50s a week ago, and I did the VP this past weekend. I'm tired of list updating for now. So no, you'll have to wait. #;-}>
Exp = worth 3x
Reviews = 2x
Posts = 1,5x
B/p = 1
Now that's better than posts 2x, yes. I could live with that weighting.
But I'm probably still not going to do it that way.
And then you divide it by some random number, like 9 or something, and you get some cool score that represents VETNESS!!!!!!
Vetness = better than all
More quarterback rating nonsense! divide by 9 my ass. How arbitrary.
Anywho, I'd love to include reviews in it right now, but the entire point of the list is 10,000+ and NO one has over 10,000 reviews. I guess I could just go ahead and start adding in the existing people on the list's reviews, but... eh... we'll see. Maybe XwaynecoltX will hit 10,000 reviews by the time I next update the list in a few months.
