in reply to Too much Front Paging

Bull pucky!

Over the last eight days, only 28% of the 187 SoPQ nodes have been front paged and only three nodes total were front-paged and responded to by the same person. The problem, I think, is that you're just percieving this large volume of nodes as a small number so when it acts like a larger number, it magnifies your perception of the otherwise sparse front-paging activity.

The data follows.

    I'd not throw insults unless the figure that he quoted was actually wrong.

    At a guess, he compiled statistics by hand. If I was in his position tackling that task, I'd have first thought of tackling it that way, and also likely would have stopped with a single day's data.

    The fact that it is more convenient for you to gather data is no cause to be insulting if a longer time sample disagrees with what his sample indicated. If you can show that he miscollected or deliberately misrepresented the facts that he presented, that might be different. But that isn't the situation here.

    For those who don't want to do the math: based on GMT +0 for Sep. 23: 24 total SOPWs and 9 FPs, or 37.5%, meaning tachyon's figures were most likely correct (the percent raises or lowers depending on the timezone). I would agree with dio that a larger time period would be needed in order to say "nodes are being FPed too much". I'd actually be curious what the monthly/yearly average is. (Calculations below)
