I always love new metrics. 

In which case, allow me suggest Earned merit x Number of underscores in username.

Point taken.  They have to be useful metrics.   Smiley

That kind of score system would also discourage people from spamming, since the most posts you have the lower your score gets! That sounds a fantastic formula nutildah! I hope it gets the attention it deserves and hopefully be implemented after a few tweaks.

As already mentioned, I also agree that counting the free merits is not fair, however if counting only the earned merits that'd create the opposite issue. The merit system was introduced on January, so people had about 9 months to earn merits. On the other hand the forums are operating for many years now, therefore some old members have thousands of posts and relative fewer merits, reducing their score because of that is also not fair.

I don't know if it's possible, but the best solution I could think of is if the score could take into consideration the postcount/activity/merit earned of the last 12 months.

Correct, but there is a large obstacle here. The number of post should be the number of posts from a certain date onwards for all users (Merit System kick-off for example). Otherwise, the ratio works backwards for the people who have been on the forum for a long time, since their current post count will be much higher that someone who started posting on or after the 24/01/2018. Unfortunately knowing the starting post count for all accounts is not feasible, since there is no public snapshot from that date (perhaps a backup that @vod may have could serve).

Alternatively, the average number of posts per day could be derived and used, replacing the total number of posts.

For example (roughly), a person with 1200 posts with a 500 day old account has an average of 2,4 posts per day. Let’s also say that the system has been going on for 9 months (simplifying, 270 days), and that in that period of time he has earned 100 sMerits, then his ratio would be:
100 / (2,4*270) = 0,1543 merits per averaged post.
This avoids needing a snapshot and instead uses a moving daily average (I´d prefer the snapshot though for precision). The only thing is that the ratio would be exact for newer accounts, and using a moving average for older accounts that starts farther back in time (posting habits may have varied).

Second place isn't bad when first place has four times as many underscores  Tongue

What about all the jacks?
I assume I'd be second (after JackJack) but maybe I'm being too modest Grin

@Darkstar_, o_e_i_e_o is in the lead by quite a lot there (merit wise).

@Vod, number of consanents in names times merits (just so oeieo doesn't get in on it)?


a list of earnt merit/posts would actually be quite an interesting one to calculate (but only using posts since January - or whenever the merit system came out)...

I liked this one, because bias.
It is kind to me due to my lurking ways, relatively less posts..
