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.

What do you mean rep points? Like, how many reps you have received?

(100*4348) / (2703*83)

The wondrous Google calculator puts that at 1.94

Not really sure that the followers bit makes sense, a lot of my rep comes from people who aren't following me as well as those who are...

Plus it's only gonna decrease as you post more and acquire more followers. People follow you because your posts are good, yet that decreases your score... :facepalm2:

Tbh I can't be bothered to calculate it. I'm not too bothered about rep points. I just want to help people out in any way I can

Why are the number of followers considered a denominator? Surely more followers reflects higher quality postage from the individual being followed? Hence it should be a numerator, not a denominator.

Trust me it makes sense. It's the same for me, I get rep from both but there are people with loads of rep points that only really get rep from their folowers cos they are buddies with them.

More than than 100:1.

Son, you've got some catching up to do. And please stop introducing qualifiers, it's like when you changed the monopoly rules because your senile grandmother was beating your ass.

Nah because people follow based on friendly sentiments as opposed to post quality.

A guy with 15 followers that gets the same amount of rep for every post is definitely posting higher quality than someone with 300.

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.
