Who is the biggest post whore and the anti-post whore?

Top 10 total posters and their character count per post
Assuming that there is some correlation between "good, useful post" and how long the post is, it would stand to reason that the biggest post whore is the person with the largest post count but the least number of average characters per post...... here are the stats for the top 10 posters on M3F


MZ6ZoomZoom* Posts: 7208
average characters per post: 296

untouchable* Posts: 6746
average characters per post: 172

MZ3sZoomZoom* Posts: 6483
average characters per post: 162

csweeney* Posts: 6098
average characters per post: 206

Absinthe* Posts: 5845
average characters per post: 143

FrostyFire* Posts: 5112
average characters per post: 196

dinu01* Posts: 4854
average characters per post: 196

ATL* Posts: 4007
average characters per post: 138

holeydonut* Posts: 3863
average characters per post: 461

Oricle* Posts: 3822
average characters per post: 184


-- ------------------------------

Top 8 longest average posts
Again, taking an assumption that the longer your average post the more useful your post is, here are the top 8 people with the largest "characters per post" value. (minimum post number for consideration is 10).

nozferatu Posts: 18
average characters per post: 4412

NCMZ3 Posts: 22
average characters per post: 1806

PiCASSO Posts: 33
average characters per post: 1632

Mazda3Online Posts: 12
average characters per post: 1564

A3 Posts: 13
average characters per post: 1485

CDTMAZDA3 Posts: 321
average characters per post: 1454

WolverineGator Posts: 16
average characters per post: 1416

Joe Cheng Posts: 75
average characters per post: 1408

-- ---------------------------------------------------

Well, I would also argue that a large characters per post may just be indicative of a member liking to quote others or including lots of image links..... but hey - there is no other good metric I care to measure now



Of course, it also stands to reason that the more posts you make, the more likely it will be that your post will consist of a single smiley or just some random garbage.....

So, mad props go to nozferatu, CDTMAZDA3,* and Joe Cheng!* I mean nozferatu is posting full dissertations out there * And Joe and CDTMAZDA3 have a great number of posts to go with his high "characters per post."*

Here are nosferatu's recent posts:

Here are CDTMAZDA3's recent posts:

And here are Joe Cheng's posts:

If you see these members, give them some kudos for taking so much time in posting their knowledge and insight!

* Just so you all know, posts made in the black hole count and the single metric used was the length of the field in the database used to store each post.* Numbers rounded to the nearest post.* Modification to posts ignored.* Private Messages ignored.

Re: Who is the biggest post whore and the anti-post whore?

I've only read Joe's posts, and they're great. I only wish Joe drove the MZ3, not his daughter. Then perhaps he'd post here more. Until then, I'm sure he'll enjoy his 911.

Re: Who is the biggest post whore and the anti-post whore?

dude, you post short replies like that and all you do is bring down your user average

I don't think this thread is for flaming ( ATL or Absinthe ) or giving me super-paise (but feel free to do so) ... I just think it's fun to see some general statistics on M3F

Re: Who is the biggest post whore and the anti-post whore?

Oh, post counts reach across all of Dan's forums - this includes the Volvo, Ford, and MazdaSpeeders sites. The post count on M3F should be less than your global post count...


Also - some more fun statistics.

318 is the AVERAGE number of characters per post for ALL posts made in the forums. I dunno what significance this is other than that's about 64 words or about 3.5 sentences.


And, Mic_crispy holds the record for the longest thread that wasn't just one "big thing cut and pasted" into a thread:

Re: Who is the biggest post whore and the anti-post whore?

Congrats to Mic_crispy, may he RIP. Tomorrow I will begin a post that will overcome MC's record for longest thread. I will post all known information about the Mazda3. Yes, that's right: every single bit of known information.

Hey Holey, what was your job at KU? I graduated in '04. Please don't tell me you were a parking nazi. Everybody hated those guys.

Re: Who is the biggest post whore and the anti-post whore?

I'm a whore plain and simple, but now I know to over elaborate every single one of my posts to make me appear more intelligent, so from now on if you want a straight forward answer from me it will not longer be available, you will have to read through the entire text of the Divinci Code in order to find the answer to your questions from me. I just thought Id give you all this warning in advance so you would understand why the Divinci code is goind to appear over 6000 time on the message board. Have a nice day

haha yeah right..Joe has some of the most usefuls posts I have ever read..if there was a spot for a site tech person, Id vote Joe for president
