Note that we want to keep this anonymous so that this doesn't boil down into a big flamefest. Frankly I don't know what you should even post in this thread; all votes should be PM'd to me anyways. Maybe you can just diddle yourself and brag about it.

Or, you could suggest folks that I forgot to add.

How this will work:

You PM me a list of posters that you would like to 'judge', and assign them a numerical value between -3 and +3 (0 is an option).
-3 = Hard Left
-2 = Left
-1 = Center Left
0 = Center
1 = Center Right
2 = Right
3 = Hard Right

Keep your critique of my scale to yourself. This isn't going to be published in a journal; this is just a fun thing to keep track of. I will keep track of all of the scores anonymously using an excel sheet (or to be more specific, OpenOffice Calc).


This isn't the official list, you can vote for anyone not on this list and anyone on the list. I don't need x or y votes to update the score; I'll update the scores whenever I damn feel like, but to be nice I'll try to do it maybe once a day early on, and if this thing doesn't die terribly, maybe once a week as more ratings come in.

If the list is hard to read, it's probably my fault. I've copied the raw numbers straight from my excel file (Turns out I caught up pretty quickly with my excel math). The name on the left is the poster. The first number is their average score, the most important number in the list. TOTAL is mostly irrelevant, as it's the combination of all votes for this person. COUNT finds out how many times this person has been voted for (The higher the number, the more popular of a poster you are).

I guess now's a good time to brush up on my excel math

This is pretty simple though.

I actually rather like this idea.

one minor problem is that the canadian center is like your far left. Europe is also not on the same scale.

Should we assume you mean the american definition of left/right (because I think we all kind of know that standard)?

I did mine on an absolute scale.

The problem with this is that the larger American audience will have no idea/concept what that scale is and where they fall as a result? Just a concern --- that could bias the entire sample.
The people who think they are too smart for the game are the ones who do not realize they are getting gamed.

True.

Which is why I'm only doing this for the lulz, and not as any sort of actual experiment.

I had to shorten mine because I'm not completely familiar with all of the posters yet.

I don't know anyone that well. I'll stay out of this. I think the forum average is like -1 or -2 though.
