# How good are your posts on TSR? watch

1. (Original post by Awesome Genius)

You could leave out followers tbh, but then you have this problem of friends repping each other. Means it has little to do with how good their posts are.
Friends repping each other? Is that a thing? I think it would be wiser to just ignore followers altogether, they're an unknown variable as far as I'm concerned.

I think we should add some sort of academic standard to the mix though.

(Reputation score/Number of posts) * Academic factor

Where the academic factor is a number from 0 to 1.

1- Studied Medicine
0.9- Did not study Medicine, but studied at Oxford or Cambridge
0.8- Did not study at Oxbridge, but studied a STEM subject at a Russell Group Uni
0.7- Studied non-STEM, but respected course at Russell Group Uni
...
...
...
0.01- Studied Photography at Met

Of course, we could expand the scale to accommodate A-levels and GCSEs too.

= (100 * Rep points) / (posts * followers)
= (100 * 7385) / (3669 * 180)
= (738500) / (660420)
= 1.12
Hmm I don't think my scoring system is working, I think your number should be higher than mine.
3. (100 * 591) / (248 * 1)

= 238.3

Yeah, I don't think this system works...
4. I've made a lot more banter / useless posts recently.

There are really good ones, then kinda crappy (not concise) ones, and irrelevant ones.

If someone was to look through my post history, they'd immediately find the crappier ones unfortunately. (/Not look hard enough for the good stuff.)
5. (100*2477)/(393*23) = 27.4
6. 3.23 reps per post

100*1642 / 509* 24
164200/12216

13.4
7. (100*1960)/(1031*58)

=3.28, did I win?
8. Where do you find out your total rep points. Also if some peoples rep points are worth more do you still say it as one or would it be 4 or whatever number it is.
9. (Original post by Awesome Genius)
Good posts get rep.

So you could look at rep per post.

However you would apply one final modifier because there are a lot of people that have got rep by integrating themselves into large repping circles, these are the people with many posts per day like upwards of 15 or 20. They don't necessarily get rep cos their posts are good but because they have lots of friends. I am guilty of that myself at times.

So....

(100 * Rep points) / (posts * followers)

> 10 followers, > 500 posts

...

2.11

Let's see who wins. I reckon cam bio.
let's stick to green gems m8.

You need more than 10 followers and 500 posts though!

Don't worry I have found it.
3.23 reps per post

100*1642 / 509* 24
164200/12216

13.4

(100*2477)/(393*23) = 27.4
Fiduciam in the lead! 6 points per post is amazing anyway.

Lol but then were answering a different question - who is the smartest TSRian?
14. 2.16

I'm better than Awesome Genius.
15. (100*373)/ (460*10)

8.10869565217
16. 360

come at me bruh
17. The followers thing is totally messing this up (no idea why I did this anyway)

(100*1955)/(1186*22) gives me 195500/26092

So 7.49

Yeah...
18. This would make so much more sense if it was just , having followers at the bottom is just introducing more error than it removes.
19. (100*2255)/(1410*11) = 14.54
20. This doesn't account for the members who had previously negative rep before the removal of neg rep. Such as myself who accumulated about -2000.

EDIT: 3.72
