Phase 4 'Top 100' graphs

Post by jsmaje » Wed Aug 10, 2011 12:41 pm

I know that at least a few dusters during previous phases have appreciated an interactive graphical provision of the team's ranking statisitics, and what may be learned from them, hence a new Stardust Top 100 Phase 4 site.

The debates about how the the stats are calculated in the first place, the psychological effect on duster participation, and ultimate relevance to the
scientific project, are matters for discussion elsewhere.

The new scoring system, which may yet change again, has required a re-write and simplification of previous versions (for now at least) since both 'Power' and 'Skill' need to be handled.

So, the graphs currently available are:
1: Power scores
2: Skill scores
3: Power vs. same duster's skill
4: Skill vs. same duster's power
5: Weekly activity (number of dusters active, plus mean power & skill scores)
6-8: Phase 1, 2 & 3 final scores

Below is a recent Power vs. Skill graph - I hope caprarom doesn't mind having been selected as a good example!

Draw your own conclusions, but it should be interesting to see what trends the 'Weekly Activity' graph reveals as time goes by.

Please post here or PM me with any comments, suggestions or problems.*

Fascinating! You should add a note that you can roll over the bars for much more detailed info.

Thanks Dan & Mike for your appreciation.
I've made it clearer about how to use the mouse pointer to show each individual's details, and the option to select a particular duster (including oneself) for comparison if so desired.
