in reply to Fastest Rising Monks - Revisited

Interesting, but perhaps the "Percent" is not saying so much about the Monks' "quality" (no, I will not go into any discussion about XP and quality here). It would say a lot more if one also took into account the level (Saint,...) as now a "new" initiate will have a low percentage (no one who came in after him will have a higher XP yet) and will thus rank very high (within the first twenty).

Perhaps sorting on "level" first and "percent" next?

Still, a useful exercise: ++!

Update: I see you now exclude Monks with less 100 XP. That indeed already answers my comment!

    CountZero,
    Well, you raise a point I should be more clear about. I am not excluding monks with less than 100 XP in all calculations. I am just disqualifying them from appearing in the list.

    In other words, they still count for calculating monks that came after you, but they themselves are not eligible to be in the list. This however is one of the many configurable options. Once you have built the database with the -u option, you can re-run your stats using different variations.

    Cheers - L~R
