I saw the Ratio thumbs thread and noticed one very bad thing about myself:

As much as I enjoy getting thumbs for my posts, I do not thumb enough my fellow BGGers other posts (which are good interesting posts!). I promise to change and improve my behavior.

I hope this post will also make other BGGers to check their thumbing policy. After all it is a simple act to show appreciation to your fellow friends here and for the time they spent writing their thoughts and information.

You can find out how many and what you thumbed by going to "My Geek ---> Contributions" and looking on the bottom right under "Other Ratings." (it only lists thumbs you have given to Images, GeekLists, Threads and Files)

NEW CALCULATION: WHAT IS YOUR THUMBS GIVEN TO THUMBS RECEIVED PERCENTAGE:

How to calculate: Divide your total thumbs given for Images, GeekLists, Threads and Files by your thumbs received for those same items and multiply by 100.

Given: 604
Received: 2233
Mine is an embarrassingly low 27.05% shake

Now I am off to give some thumbs.

Wow - also embarrassing.

How do you find out how many thumbs you have been giving out? Under the statistics for the thumbs received, I see only part of what I have been giving out, but that doesn't include the forum replies I have thumbed, which is by far the largest part of the thumbs I have given. So where do I find out?

"My Geek ---> Contributions" and it should be on the bottom right under "Other Ratings." As indicated, it only lists thumbs you have given to Images, GeekLists, Threads and Files.

There's no way to get an accurate number. Even though the stats are listed in your profile the numbers do not reflect 100% of the thumbs you have given; it's actually MUCH less than that.

Then I can't say for sure whether I received more thumbs than I gave out. I guess I can sleep with a clean conscience again.

I'm a product of chit chat training. Though I make it a point to not uh, thumb "indiscriminately" while outside bacon-land (which has been a lot recently -- don't have as much time as I used to), I do make an effort to thumb all of the good content I come across. Especially images and files.

Thumbs given: 1489
Thumbs Received: 253
1489/253= 5.885 * 100 =

Percent: 588.5%

This can't be right. My elementary school will dis-own me now cry

Edit: As a big rookie at many games, and a heavy BGG troller of information, I can't help but notice alot of good stuff I never thought of, OR could have put together no matter how hard I tried. I am surprised though at how many files I pickup here that have 200,300, 400+ downlaods and say 10 thumbs (or some other wacky proportion). As a youngish guy looking to build his wargamming collection. Entice his GF, family, and friends to more gaming. And developing new tastes as I randomly search through the geek, I am constantly blown away by the good stuff here (punctuated by my own relative crap! laugh )

Thanks for all the good postings throughout the geek, and may you please make more, so I can thumb you! (Sounds sorta wrong when I say it like that?)

Edit: Cleaned this up and mirrored Lajos' table- Things do change fast!

If you need to ask it means you know the answer and simply not happy about it hoping to get some other answer O-)

NEW CALCULATION: WHAT IS YOUR THUMBS GIVEN TO THUMBS RECEIVED PERCENTAGE:

There's a problem with that statistic because thumbs given are counted for less categories than thumbs received. See, for example, the effect on my stats:
received given percentage
Images: 411 1019 247.9%
GeekLists: 1851 1010 54.6%
Threads: 1656 1014 61.2%
Files: 186 1718 923.7%
Total: 4104 4761 116.0%
Other: 5264
Total: 9368 4761 50.8%


So it's 116% if you only count categories for which both are measured, and 50.8% otherwise. That's quite a substantial difference.

Although it improves my stats a little, it is still only at 27% . Now back to more thumbing. Files seem to be the most neglected.

Ok, so if you post a really nice thread and receive 100 thumbs, you must go out and now find 100 other threads to thumb?

Hardly seems equitable to me.

Actually, it seems kind of silly. Sort of an incentive to not post.

Anyone else see their new profile pages? Amongst the changes it seems as though the my # of thumbs given stats are gone. Or did I miss it?
