The significance of 2010-03-16?

on May 18, 2016 at 19:12 UTC ( #1163368=monkdiscuss: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Is there something significant about the date 2010-03-16 that explains why SioB stopped updating my total on that day?

    You stats appear to match your profile… Saints in our Book. And say you were here 8 seconds ago. What exactly is wrong with them?

      See the total at the bottom of http://perlmonks.com/?showspoiler=1163351-1;node_id=1163351.

      Further, this is a snip from a script that runs through the data from my stats page in date order totaling the scores and displaying them day by day. According to that, I reached my current listed total, 161809, by the 17th March 2010, and have to date accumulated 277470:

      C:\test>Perlmonks.postsByDate.pl | more 2002-06-04:[ 0] 0 2002-06-05:[ 23] 23 2002-06-06:[ 77] 100 ... 2010-03-16:[106] 161736 <<<<<<<<< 2010-03-17:[161] 161897 <<<<<<<<< 161809 occurred here 2010-03-18:[ 32] 161929 ... 2010-04-14:[204] 165092 -- More -- ... 2016-05-16:[106] 277437 2016-05-17:[ 22] 277459 2016-05-18:[ 11] 277470 low:-55 2005-09-03 high:373 2007-05-09

      It doesn't bother me -- hell, its taken me 6 years to even notice -- but I just wondered why?

      I also wonder which other site stats are wrong?

        Perhaps you should read some Monastery FAQs (or even recent threads in this very section) if you believe that (a user's) "Experience" is equal to "sum of Reputation over all nodes" (by that user). Or is my guess as to what your code is doing incorrect?

    Is there a simple but thorough explanation of how you reached that conclusion?

    Voting/Experience System talks about a weekly $NORM and other odds ... basically anybody voting on node older than 4 weeks doesn't gain you any XP,

    so without knowing the $NORM for each week, the amount of voters for each week...

    So math something? I dunno

      How dare you question the monk with the most experience points and the fastest rate of accumulation when he says he is being cheated!?!
        he says he is being cheated!?!

        Where? When?

        (Hint:'devalued' ne 'cheated'. eg. You devalue this place by posting anonymously; but its not cheating. )

      I love to pull apart statistics. There's a wonderful phrase that turns up CFO reports and national Treasury stats all the time:

      ... the rate of share decline/recession is falling.

      If you hear it said or read it quickly without thinking about it, it sounds like good news. It sounds like something is getting better.

      What it really means is, things are getting worse more slowly. But still getting worse.

      Take a magic number calculated by an undisclosed formula; wrap it in a few plausible but nonsensical pseudo-axioms, and multiply it by some random percentage of chance; what do you call the results?

      I call it: something that no one can check or verify or challenge. I'd prefer no stats to bad ones.

        Yes, now I see the similarity between SoB amd TIOBE: Both rankings that could be informative but are based on obscure measurements and therefore saying nothing.

        I had misunderstood your OP as if you were complaining that your XP is not equal to the sum of votes collected by your posts. The latter would make for nice ranking, too :-)

        Maybe I call it a silly game? Its about participation not node reputation...

        proposal: Maybe the homenode should list a Total node reputation: 10:-1/+11 that is different from XP?

        I call it: something that no one can check or verify or challenge. I'd prefer no stats to bad ones.
        Then close your eyes, #1. What could possibly more revolting than the winner bitching about not winning enough? #Sportsmanship

    My number on SioB matches the number on my home node. Whatever. I've written a few useful posts and voted on a few nodes. I've also had my bacon saved a couple of times from stuff that I've read. And I've been entertained many, many times. Some of the stuff on people's home nodes is amazing.

    My Dad had stroke last week (he's recovering, thanks), and that sort of puts things into perspective. XP is just a number. Who cares.

    PS Have a nice weekend, everyone. :)

    I get 8695 as the sum of my post values. My XP is 8158, which is about a 6% difference. It seems the discrepancy widens with time and post volume.

    But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 (NASB)
