I thought I might've ranked higher than that, but math says no. :(


He forgot to mention that the ranking is in ascending order, 1 being the least esteemed position ;-)

the only flaw I see there, CO, is if you've gone to BRC, and been on eplaya, about the same number of years, but, started going at the end of the last century, you will be ranked way lower, than a person who started this century

200 posts
eplaya 8 years (04)
BRC 8 years

first year 04

rank: 50

2000 posts
eplaya 14 years
playa 14 years
first year 98

rank: 20.4

of course, the fortune of your statement, is that it matters, not at all.

Well, yeah.

If you started going in 99, started on eplaya in 01, your numbers will be vastly different from someone that started going in 01 but was on eplaya since 99.

I figured I would try out the "speculative & meaningless" numbers game that so many people in the ticket forum like. Now we can play 'burnier than thou' with a meaningless scoring system!

So, nothing can be learned by going to profiles and looking at the "posts per day" number.

I want to tell all of you that it was not my intent to stir up a "burnier than thou" back and forth from any of you here. I am an avid reader of these boards and contribute when I think I have something to add to the discussion. I have enjoyed all the dialogue and have learned a lot from all of you, burn related or otherwise. Again, my thanks. Oh, and according to the CO's equation I am a 77.83. Whatever the hell that means :D

The CO wrote:Solve for E:

Start with number of posts. (n)

(Shit. I talk too much. And work too little.)

The CO wrote:Divide by years you have been on eplaya. (e)


5 days = 0.0136986301 years
(Way too much. And way too little.)

OK, 16/0.0136986301 = 1168
(OK, fair enough).

The CO wrote:Multiply by the number of times you have been to BRC. (B)

That would be 1. So still 1168.
(Sounds about right).

The CO wrote:Divide that by the last two digits of the first year you went (y)

First year I went was 2000. OK...

Personally, I try not to post random BS posts like this one. It takes a lot of effort to hit the reply button sometimes. However, I wanted to play with The CO's math, to which I have a score of 79.72 (we only need two significant digits in this answer right professor?).

I don't always post on eplaya, but when I do, I make sure lemur has the ability to make a comment about it.

So, is 2001 "01" or ".01"? Because honestly, I suck at math. Am I 20,246.875 or 202.46875?

I just think people underestimate my level of lazy. It's a huge massive volume of lazy and it's hard to push the mouse waaaaaay over there and click it or I just have nothing interesting (IMO) to add to the conversation.
