Hi there, in my stats page I see this kinda info:

Meta0.2170%
Services0.1856%
New forum software0.1085%
Gambling0.1015%
Project Development0.0851%
Technical Support0.0627%
Service Discussion0.0457%
Games and rounds0.0442%
Alternative clients0.0313%
Beginners & Help0.0307%

Maybe I'm missing something, but it looks to me like the decimal is in the wrong place.  If these percentages are right as they are shown, then this info only tells me about 0.78% of my posts.  If the decimal place is by two (as I suspect it is) then this tells me about 78% ofmy posts, which I suppose is correct.  It looks to me like someone added the % symbol but forgot to multiply by 100.

If you're talking about the "Most Popular Boards By Activity" thing, then it displays the ratio of posts from this forum that you wrote

Right, but presumably it was 21% in meta, not 0.21%.   Usually you calculate a precent by first calculating the ratio and then multiplying x100 and adding the % sign.  It looks to me like they forgot the multiply by 100 step.  Or maybe I'm wrong and it's only giving me info about 0.78% of my posts (that would be weird, though, more likely that this info covers 78% of my posts, right?)

I've never really understood how the Most Popular Boards By Activity was calculated or if it was displaying properly. According to my stats the most popular board is New Forum Software with 6.6161%. What does activity mean in this regard? I've hardly posted in there.

Wouldn't work for me:

Auctions       0.9076%
Hardware       0.8062%
Computer hardware       0.4875%
Meta       0.3346%
CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware       0.2721%
Reputation       0.1391%
New forum software       0.1085%
Mining speculation       0.1077%
Archival       0.0845%
Long-term offers       0.0548%

No combination there makes sense

You didn't get what I said
It's not
Code:
(number of posts you posted in this forum) / (number of total posts you posted everywhere)
It's
Code:
(number of posts you posted in this forum) / (number of total posts posted in this forum, from everybody)


Development & Technical Discussion has ( 108348 - 27558(subforums) ) = 80790 posts.
According to my stats, my ratio is 0.7711% and I posted 623 posts there.
And 623 / 80790 = 0.7711%

Right. That particular measurement is your posts/total posts. It's meant to show your activity in that board compared to overall activity there. Brazil shows up in my top ten because I moved a bunch of topics a couple times, because overall there are few topics/posts there.

Thanks, I completely understand now.  Cheers!
