p.1 #1 · Like, Quote, and lots of Dots!


I must be reading during a major upgrade to Fred's forum software, because I see these "Quote" and "Like" buttons under posts, and a series of dots under names. I can only assume the dots are some measure of participation?

(I wonder how many dots I'll have after I post this!)

Hmm. 4 dots. I've seen 6 for people with 10,000+ posts, so I'll have to figure the formula....

i'd reckon it has something to do with total # of posts Or not, as the case may be

I posted a "dot" thread before reading yours, John. Tryin' to figure this out too...
must be some relationship between ones sign-up date, # of posts, posts per day but
there's obviously more to it. Helpful posts (w/pics to support) may enter into the formula.
With a quarter million FM members, this has to be an "auto" assignment. Puzzling, eh?!

Will, IIRC, didn't there used to be a "Dedicated" descriptor included by the total # of posts? Or maybe I need another cup of coffee

I only have 6 dots, but I don't participate in most of the forums.
I'm not sure what it means.

Hi everyone,
We added many new forum features last night and I forgot to mention the "dots".
Basically it's just a visual way to see 'total number of posts'. If you mouse over the dots, you will see its range in numbers.
Eventually we will have a lot of info showing in the member's profile, including 'Featured thread wins', 'Received Likes', 'Positive Feedback', etc. Currently we have the "Assignment wins" without any link to the actual winning image. That will also be added soon.
Best,
Fred

Here's the graph I recently posted on the Alt Forum,

http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1197633/0#11419714

I just finished examining the relationships between number of stars and number of posts, and number of posts per year as FM member. For the twenty samples I selected, the correlation is the same for both parameter sets, at 0.871. Here's a graph of Number of Stars vs. Number of Posts for those twenty members, with vertical dashed lines at 5000, 10000 and 20000 to show what I think are likely threshold values.

P.S. this one has axis labels.

Love it. Now we need to sample 200 posters.

Can the number of posts really mean anything about the poster? I like to believe that there are many helpful people here that may not have many dots and I see this measurement as a nil value. Nothing, nada, zip...

Or, in the words of Jethro Bodine, "nought plus nought equals nought."

I suppose one could compare the number of dots with the number of "Likes" and draw some conclusions about whose posts are really valued and whose posts are considered by the forum to be just so much hot air.

Or not.
