>Your calculations are wrong because they're using linear math for a subjective and incomparable measurement
Okay, I get what you're saying now, you're not saying that the calculation of PPH is innaccurate, just that it isn't applicable to what we're talking about. That's fair.
So what looking at PPH can do is not prove anything objectively
, but it can give us some hints as to engagement
and what we can learn from this. As you mention, it can't prove something like how well-informed people are in a thread or how well the OP is made, but it can measure how interested
people are in it, meaning, how much interest it garners. That's not to say that it directly speaks to anything,but one could argue that a thread with a high PPH is likely to be well-written because it is interesting. One could also argue that it's just well-crafted bait.
However, while all such evidence is conjecture and can never be proof, if use to support a hypothesis, it does become evidence
While I certainly would want to measure other factors all I can measure is PPH. I am not trying to measure quality
but interaction measured by quantity.
Now if you're suggesting that there is no meaningful way to analyze and compare statistics on a Chan then frankly we're getting into some Postmodern stuff where I cannot help you or hope to convince you.
"The people" is seven guys or so?
>same topic but not competing (somehow)
I legitimately don't think they necessarily would have to be in competition, especially because how different the ways of posting are. People on /games/ want long detailed comments form people fairly deep in the fandom.
People on /leftypol/ are much more casual. I think you'd have to demonstrate that they are the same audience before assuming so, especially now thet were is circumstantial evidence to indicate the opposite.
>We've already discussed this m8, the mods aren't going to let this up for a few days minimum, because you've essentially been spamming m8.
That sounds vindictive and childish.
