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

-- #!/usr/bin/perl for(ref bless{},just'another'perl'hacker){s-:+-$"-g&&print$_.$/}

    Don't average the is_prereq criteria: Make the author score the average of its module kwalitee (without is_prereq), then simply add the number of modules that have is_prereq (divided by a constant factor, say 10, to decrease its impact on the score).

    This way davorgs's score qould be 17 (average of his module scores) + 6 (nb of is_prereq) / 10: 17.6. Which incidentally would tie him with CEESHEEK for second I believe, with TMTM comfortably on top of the heap.

    Does it make sense?

      Exactly my thoughts. I think that makes a lot of sense.

      Makeshifts last the longest.

    How about just... y'know... ignoring the whole issue? It's not like you get prizes :-)
