Please only list your ratio if you have more than 100 contributions.

Here is how to find out what your Thumb-to-Contribution (TtC) ratio is:

Go to My Geek ---> Contributions (or just use this link: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/user/your_username/contribution... but change "your_username" to your username )

On the right side of the screen copy all the items above where your total thumbs are listed and paste them into excel or another spreadsheet program so you can easily add them up. (I know that some of these items (i.e. tags) do not get thumbs, so if you want to exclude those, feel free to do so). Then divide your total thumbs by your total contributions.

Let’s see. My total thumbs (3,587) divided by my total contributions (1,129) equals 3.1775 thumbs per contribution.

List your TtC ratio below and I will do my best to improve it .

I'm a relative noob when it come to contributing, so I would expect to have a higher number due to the fact that I have contributed less, so it is easier to make up for lousy items with just a couple of good contributions:

Contributions: 155
Thumbs: 917
TtC Ratio: 5.916129

BTW, there is a minor flaw in this. If you get thumbs for pictures in your personal gallery (as I did), these pictures don`t count to your contributions, but raise your thumbs.

Edit one day later:

Thumbs: 13527
Contributions: 3809
TtC: 3.551

See, how hard it is to get a better ratio having quite a lot of "old" thumbs? My last 10 contributions got me 130 thumbs and lift the ratio for only 0.025 points.

Plus there is another "flaw": "Tags" are counted as contributions, as do "Items submitted" and so on, stuff you get never a single thumb for.

So, a more "realistic" way to check the average quality of contributions would be to count the submisions appearing in the thumblist below, too, including the pictures of your personal gallery.

But - who cares. Fun thread!

This will also favor newer folks (like me) who hadn't already made hundreds/thousands of contributions before thumbs were born.

I blame my low ratio on evolution. Many of my contributions occurred before any of us had thumbs.

to give.


Or it could be that everything I write is crrrrap...

Ha! In your faces. First with a less than 1.00 average !

(I'd say majority of my contributions are rules-related, guess people don't like playing by the rules )

I have a higher signal-to-noise ratio due to my geeklist comments and forum replies. I'm afraid I don't contribute much actual content.

Thumbs: 755
Ratio: 8.58

This is easily explained by the small ammount of contributions and few comments/images that have collected pretty high number of thumbs... Most of the stuff I do still sucks.

Edit: Oh, and by the way, if this post doesn't get at least 8,59 thumbs I will delete it, just to keep up the ratio!

* Of course, GeekQuestion and GeekAnswer thumbs STILL are not being added to the total tally. That's probably another few hundred thumbs unaccounted for.

Now, that was depressing... Including Tags I end up with a ratio of 0.68, without Tags it increases to 0.87. cry

On the other hand I've given out 5046 thumbs, maybe I should remove them to not make my own ratio look quite so bad... devil

Edit: First ratio is made up of 773/1129, second one of 773/885.
