Does anyone else think this warrants recognition in the "noisy log" section on AP? I do.
Let's see if we can get it there.
I admire your tenacity, GSwede.
I know the guy who made AP; I'll ask him to bump up BigWillyStyle.
Some part of the noisy log algorithm involves having more than two people discussing things I think.
@dbakker - that would make sense. I confirmed with ken that a single user commenting isn't sufficient to cause a noisy log. Does anyone have any idea what the algorithm might be? I could see multiplying the total number of comments by the square of the number of unique commenters, say, and ranking all users by that value. You might want to also include some time penalty - comment threads from a few days ago could contribute less to a log's noise score than more recent comments.
Say, for tau ~ 3 days:
Value of a comment thread = (unique users - 2) * sqrt(# comments) * e^(-t / tau)
Value of a log = sum over all comment threads.
This doesn´t look like Ian?
He's now on the list but not yet at the top...
noo leave me alone u guys
Has anyone here seen my keys?
I've been looking for hours.
Embrace your destiny, BigWillyStyle. Your confession will echo in eternity.
Solidly in 2nd; this is progress.
You keep using that word confession. I do not think it means what you think it means.
Is there a confessional around here?
"A confession is a statement – made by a person or by a group of persons – acknowledging some personal fact that the person (or the group) would ostensibly prefer to keep hidden."
Yes, exactly - no facts are being acknowledged in my statement.
This may well be the noisiest comment thread on your log ever.
Excellent PB reference Will!
Nah I've had noisier. Besides which, this entire thread is fake news.
