I herby present the Kommentor Zone Rating System for the statistical evaluation of commentors on BCB.
at first blush this stat should be defined as:
[(REC's)+ (DAVR-BLOU)+(SWLs)] / (P+C)
REC's = # of rec's received on posts or comments
DAVR = number of replies to your post/comments
BLOU = number of replies calling you a major ass/requesting you pound sand
SWLs = funny or timely pictures posted
P= # of posts made
C= # of comments made
There should also be some accomodation for comments or stances that are heckled at the time but turn out to be so way correct that you are considered forever awesome (ie: all The Riot and Hoffpauir official athletic supporters).
Possibly including extra points if you start a running gag that sticks- not sure on that abbreviation yet.
Of course there should be a plus/minus system in place to determine our value over replacement level (cubs.com message board comments?) and the Zones could be defined as
- occasional poster
- highly flammable
- serial posters
- I truly have no life outside of BCB
All in all I think this will at least be as valuable to conversation as discussing defensive statistics. Please feel free to heap your praise in the comments below.
Al, if you need help implementing this I can lend some programming help so we can add this to our user pages.
