There are many biases inherent in any such analsysis in a way, but there is one here in your methodology as apparent in that statement.
That is not really what you are computing. CF might be able to compute that but the information you are referring to isn't publically available. We don't know the percentage of posts that have been repped, but rather someone's total rep per post.
Everyone knows that some people now have the power to "max" someones rep bar with a single positive rep. It wasn't anything like that to begin with. Instead it took many postive reps for anyone to max out that bar. It took longer for bars to move across. So there has been rep "inflation" over time that I believe almost anyone here would acknowledge - this is why this is being brought up. As a result, someone who made, for example, 500 posts early on and few since, might not have even maxed out yet, relative to someone who posted 500 posts more recently and was repped many fewer times - but who might have a total rep many times that of a poster who actually had a higher percentage of posts repped. The same logic applies to, for example, someone who has posted at a relatively constant rate since the current system was implemented, versus those who are relatively newer posters.
As I said though there are many possible biases. For example, once almost everyone's reps is maxed out, do people rep other posts at the same rate they did before?
Another might be many who post numerous brief and often humorous replies but that may not rise to the level of someone else repping it (though I have reped people before for overall body of work).
But I wanted to pointed out an obvious one, as I almost did the other day, and as I do not believe any one else has as yet - rep inflation over time - and specifically contrary to what you just posted here.
My own rank was 206.
i.e. Multiply the initial calculation by ***** length to obtain the final ranking.
I'm not going to lie. I made one funny post that was in the 1K posts I've made, yet that one post Hiroshima'd my ranking. I exploded like the fire of a thousand suns. That's just not fair to the millions of people that were in Japan that fateful day. Please re-correct your initial publication of the PQR to reflect this drastic toll on people that were wronged. Please sir, for the sake of the innocent, think of the children.
He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man.
