Popularity column

category: general [glöplog]
I thought it deserved its own thread...

I think the popularity column could be useful if the algo changed to something like this:

10 profile views = 10px wide.
100 profile views = 20px wide.
1000 profile views = 30px wide.
and so on.

I believe it's also an easy change?

things are always easy when one does not have to implement and maintain them

But maybe it would be more intuitive to choose another visualization for the popularity - ignoring the actual count of views and just sorting the entries by their count of views + apply a linear scale then.

see those blue bars on the left?

the 5th one is already the half of the first one.
on the 63th page the bars already have no width, an there are 2191 pages.

i think what trace says is a very good idea. a logarithmic scale would be good.

... b but the popularity index is based on a magical formula that is lost in the mists of time! a combination of thumbs, visits, cdcs, scene.org downloads, scene.org asterisks, scene.org awards (AND nominations) and youtube visits (!?).

we're just asking for a difrent representation of the data, the actual data stays unchanged.
This seems like a good idea. I'd maybe add that the popularity is pretty meaningless for unpopular demos, so perhaps drop it to zero for less than x views?

Yes, I implied that. From 0 to 9 profile views the popularity bar would be 0px wide.

1) The popular demo should have 100% popularity
2) Some people (attention whores) only need more popularity to satisfy their egos
3) Leave the system as it is and be happy
4) ???

FYI, debris is more populare than the popular demo :)
or do you mean debris should have 130% popularity?
