StatCat – Highest rated users

statcat2StatCat is back! This time the clever moggy has found for us who are the users with the highest post ratings so far this year.

What are post ratings?

StatCat thought you’d ask this (isn’t he clever?) so he asked me to include this screenshot:

Post rating

People can rate posts of games they’re a member of. You’ll see 5 stars at the bottom of each post, where you can click and give this post a rating. Users will be able to see which of their posts are rated on their dashboard, but all votes are anonymous.

There’s more written about post ratings here.

Highest rated users – 2014 so far…

To calculate the values below StatCat has added up all the ratings for all posts into points. For example a user with 10 points might have got 2 ratings of 5, or 5 ratings of 2. But I won’t bore you of the technicalities (that’s StatCat’s job).

Mrxanadu Score: 636
KarateAddi Score: 369
Tear of Blood Score: 358
Mobius64 Score: 309
Angfaulith Score: 213
nightscarling Score: 179
Embrystical Score: 140
LukeHerberd Score: 125
Johnny Score: 115
Captain Dinosaur Score: 110

Thanks StatCat! (he’s sleeping)

    Thank you everyone, really appreciate it!

    Thanks, this is mindblowing, I dont even post that often.

    Nice Job

  • Guys, just curious. This is the first time I’ve done a StatCat article about post ratings. Before we’ve done stats on amount of posts or wordcount. Both of which were a bit misleading because a high post count doesn’t account for quality, an a high wordcount could just include a lot of snips from a previous post.

    So next month shall I do another StatCat about post ratings?

    • karateAddi

      Definitely, it also gives people more of a reason to rate other people’s posts. By the way, I’m not just saying this because I got on the list!

  • karateAddi

    Congrats, everyone!

  • SMAndy

    Don’t forget though, that someone who posts a thousand posts that get 1 star each is still a terrible writer. This score would be better if it also had a number of posts per person, so you could get an average score per post. Obviously, only show the number of posts rated, so you don’t get a lot of 0’s reducing your average.

      And I apologise for the errant apostrophe in there… Should probably create an account for this thing so i can edit my failures.
