Re^4: We Have a New Popeby LanX (Bishop)
|on Apr 14, 2013 at 14:38 UTC||Need Help??|
Well if we wanna seriously discuss the rep/post ratio of different popes, it's worth observing that immediate reply levels are better voted then deeper ones.
The newest pope doesn't tend to go into deep discussions, while others are known for fighting till their keyboard breaks. And deep discussions means many low voted posts.
The reputation system has many limitations and the average "popularity"¹ of posts should be only compared by level (Re:, Re^2: and so on) and answer time.
Anyway plz don't misunderstand me, I'm not advocating to add new statistics to the monastery!!!

¹) not to be confused with "quality". =)
