I was having a discussion with a friend tonight and we were talking about a ration(or something similar) that is discussed on BGG where you look to see how many games you have played more than the the spot they fall in when looking at your highest played games.
IE, your 9th highest played game in your collection has been played 9 times or your 15th highest played game in your collection has been played 15 times.
I know this is a weird question, but it was driving us nuts that we couldn't think of what this is called.

The ration between quality and quantity is A variant of h-index.
It is used in some geeklists where quantity and quality are combined and ordered in a single number: See
"Game designers rank",
"Wargame designers rank",
"Abstract game designers rank",
"Abstract game designers by geekrating",
"Wargame designers by geekrating" and
"Game designers by geekrating".

Please give your layout some thought.

I usually absorb negative comments into something useful. That is how the h-index lists have evolved! But your is just too muchgulp. Where is "the mess" that has to be made into "sense"? I have had loads of thumbsthumbsup and bag, and positive comments like this, and constructive critics from the actual designers that I followed up on happily.

A more helpful answer would have been:

Thanks for all the links! If it's not too much trouble, could you put them on separate lines in the future? Makes it easier to figure out where each one starts and stops.

'cause you're both right... and wrong. Long links without line breaks are not user-friendly, but it isn't hard to ask nicely for better formatting.

Anyways, today I learned what H-Index is, which is pretty neat.

Yes, I realise I could have phrased it differently, and probably should have.
To be clear, I wasn't referring to the bunch of links, but to the pages linked. I appreciate the effort Per made, but the way the results are presented make it a chore to read them. The essence of my post was 'Please give your layout some thought'. Even more thumbs will come his way.
