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

Djhidden5 submitter 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

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

Yutang 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

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

It must be my insanely good looks.

Or that I fudge my own numbers.

Yutang 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

Noooo, I just upvoted you. -_-

TheNoob 1 point 33 months ago

Mr. burns is smoking hot.

gorkti200 3 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

And Philip gains a whole bunch more karma ;)

GentlemanShark 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

Darn

gorkti200 3 Builds 2 points 33 months ago

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.

You guys spend WAY too much time caring about comment karma lol

I'm willing to bet Phil wins though...

larsG35 1 Build 2 points 33 months ago

I felt that way before... but now there's $5 on the line!

That means it's important!

gorkti200 3 Builds 2 points 33 months ago

elvenson is a party pooper so I did it for him and it's 17.98% ;)

elvenson 5 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

Haha, well that took a dive in the last year lol

kylclrk 2 points 33 months ago

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...

Ksongs 2 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

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

Djhidden5 submitter 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

Mine's 6.71.

gorkti200 3 Builds 2 points 33 months ago

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%.

Yutang 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

Right now you have 1000 karma exactly btw. Congrats

gorkti200 3 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

Yeah its a fun number to land on, thanks lol

Djhidden5 submitter 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

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.

SirDodoDuck 1 point 33 months ago

4.96 :( I already lose

Brendini 1 point 33 months ago

mine is 1.12. I lost xD

SirDodoDuck 1 point 33 months ago

GG

Brendini 1 point 33 months ago

yep

Djhidden5 submitter 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

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.

SirDodoDuck 1 point 33 months ago

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

piemancoder 1 point 33 months ago

approximately 45.7 percent

Xorex64 1 point 33 months ago

With gorkti's method : 14.23%

Mike2015 2 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

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.

Matthewtina2015 2 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

Inb4 Jipster destroys all of us

vagabond139 5 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

21%. Not bad for 22K comments.

Geode1010 2 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

Right under 11%

TheNoob 1 point 33 months ago

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

gorkti200 3 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

Double-checked your math, it is correct =)

FrankV01 2 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

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.

rhali8 2 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

34%!

I win! XD

Geode1010 2 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

Philip (Do you need 5 dollars?)

How do you upvote topics?

Djhidden5 submitter 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

With sheer talent and laser puppies.

Geode1010 2 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

Pls no

Djhidden5 submitter 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

But the show is like drugs... without the cost.

526christian 1 point 33 months ago

24.4% here.

floridaboz 4 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

Forgot how to do the math on it, mainly because it is 5am and to lazy to figure it out, but last time i checked it was around 40%

Update:46.3%

Matthewtina2015 2 Builds 2 points 33 months ago

When your karma utterly destroys my 11%

Rip

floridaboz 4 Builds 2 points 33 months ago

you should have more... You are one of the nicer people here.

Matthewtina2015 2 Builds 2 points 33 months ago

Thanks Dave, that really does mean a bunch :)

Nuckles_56 4 Builds 1 point 33 months ago

14.9% That was better than I expected

Oops, sorry...

digah2750 1 point 33 months ago

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

Djhidden5 submitter 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

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