in reply to CPANTS is Not a Game

As I said on use.perl:

I'm looking for a solution to this problem, but haven't found one yet. Simply adding the number of dists to the rating would distort the stats in favour of people with many dists. So I/we need to come up with a way so that adding a new dist doesn't lower ones rating. Ideas welcome!

(I'm currently suffering from a big lumbago-relapse (sitting is big pain, standing is a pain, only lying on my back is comfortable. But getting from lying to standing is the worst pain and takes aprox 3 minutes...) Anyway, thanks to this I probably won't comment on this thread today/tomorrow. But if somebody comes up with a nice algorithm to solve the problem, I'd happily accept it to be added to CPANTS
