Using numbers collected from website use by individuals could be interesting in a number of ways. This was discussed before to some extent WRT which posters were good. Here are some other ideas along this line: Most likes/single posting: indicates a popular (presumably usefulness in some way) posting Likes/single thread: indicates a popular thread Responses/single thread: indicates a popular threadl. Likes given: indicator of magnanimity. Ratio of likes given to likes received: balance of popularity and magnanimity. Average of post scores accumulated for a particular person: Lifetime stats for a person Average of post scores accumulated over a year for a particular person: annual stats for a person I think this has to do with my liking of baseball stats.
