Comment to karma ratio

Djhidden5

41 months ago

So, I saw a post by GentlemanShark asking why they were getting down voted. What's the best karma to comment ratio? Might be a small prize in for the winner (like a $5 dollar gift card or whatever I can scrounge up). Will judge at end of week.

Edit: Shout out to Gorkti200 for pointing out my mistake.

Winner: Mike2015 with an astonishing 83% percent.

Agreeing with Gorkti here. Average karma per comment is much more useful. Mine is (262/1052)*100 =24.90% :)

Yours: 14.85%

SirDodoDuck: 20.00% <-Exactly 20%

Philip: 102.86%

rolfejc: 8.69%

GentlemanShark: 15.17%

Matthewtina2015: 10.96%

dan_castellaneta: 25.48%

:P

20% Means on average 20% of your total comments have an upvote whilst the others have none

You can't include Philip. He's a pcpartpicker.com celeb since he made the website. Same with miranelli as part of the staff.

They're examples. 103% is really impressive even for a staff member though.

Mine is 29.26%.

Once upon a time it was as high as 55-60%, back when I did lots of Completed Build and PLOW commenting. Then I started posting in Off Topic.

RIP Karma ratio.

Pretty sure Jipster69 has the highest ratio. If I did my math right, it's currently at 136.88%, which is insanely high on any standard. I think most of it came from posting on every completed build for like three months straight. I think just about all of those comments were upvoted...

Yep you did it right. Pretty sure Skemble is in second with a 94.7% ratio unless you count philip.

Dividing comments by karma is not a useful ratio. Having a higher comment count is as simple as spamming comments. The less upvotes you get (or more downvotes you get), the better, if you use this formula. Which means the less "good"(using karma as a meter of how good people find your posts to be) of a user you are, the better.

The actual formula you want is Karma divided by Comments. This tells you how much your comments are being valued, in a very rough and approximate way.

Your actual ratio is 0.14845938375350140056022408963585, or 14.85%.

You're right. I missworded it. I meant how many comments does it take you to get an up vote. Your way is better. Will edit topic.

Nah man. That's really good. That means 1 out of every 5 comments is up voted. Mine is only 1 out of every almost 7 comments getting up voted.

That is actually not too bad then, considering I am not very tech savvy compared to a lot of other people on this site.

Well, before I made this comment on this thread I had 70/84 = 0.833333 * 100 = 83.3333%.

Can somebody up vote this comment, otherwise I may have to delete this comment after the contest....jk.

I used Gorkti200's method and I got ~21℅. Not sure of this is correct.

I kinda always felt that karma was an underutilized stat on this site. Regardless of credit, I try to help others' with my limited knowledge as I can (and most importantly, I try not to put forth false facts).

Anyway, my point is that whether sometime like the OP or not, we might want to leverage karama a bit better.

I have about 28%, although once upon a time I used to have a ratio over 100%, and I had over 300 karma before I even started using the forums. Funny how OT kills your karma ratio huh

Right? I help people all the time and I like to do that, but it kills your karma since people forget to upvote.
