What is your Answer/Question ratio? (and other stats)

Asked by PhiNotPi (12647points) August 28th, 2012

At one point in the past, I noticed that I have many more answers than questions. A lot more. As of right now, I have written 1,353 answers on Fluther, but I have only asked 164 questions. That gives me an Answer/Question ratio of exactly 8.25.

This is my 807th day since joining Fluther, so I have written about 1.676 answers per day (it’s pretty close to phi, but not quite!). This also means that I have asked about 0.203 questions per day.

Anybody care to share your Fluther statistics?

You seriously expect me to do the math? Uh, no.
I have many more answers than Q.‘s simple, no need to break out my calculator. lol

gailcalled's avatar

@Coloma; List your stats. I bet there will be someone (probably me) who can’t resist

Brian1946's avatar

Please excuse my previously prying eyes, but @Coloma‘s A/Q ratio is about 382.

wilma's avatar

I have asked only 25 questions. I don’t know where to find the number of answers I have given.
I joined Sept. 9 2009.
I don’t think I would do the math, even if I could.

El_Cadejo's avatar

@wilma on your profile page there is a tab that says responses, should be listed right next to your questions

gailcalled's avatar

The “response” tab does not appear on @wilma‘s profile page, which is odd.

@wilma; Contact Auggie and ask her.

Bellatrix's avatar

If @Wilma has set her preferences so that responses are not available, the response tab will not be there. My responses are also not available. You can change it back very easily.

Coloma's avatar

@gailcalled Looks like @Brian1946 couldn’t resist either. haha

Someone else has to do the math for my little brain. Pretty please?

I have absolutely no idea. I’m just not a numbers type of person. But if anyone else feels so inclined, be my guest :)

I answer about 69 times more than I ask, and answer about .4 times a day. Lurve to answer ratio is about 3.9, but who cares about that.

Also, for those wondering about date to date calculations, this might help.

Fucked if I know.

Your A/Q ratio is about 133.

You’ve been a gelatinous life form for 1,500 days, which calculates to about 0.125 or *1/8th of a question each day, and 16.63 answers per day.

*A little less than a question a week.

Brian1946's avatar

A/Q < 37.

0.123 questions/day.

4.56 answers/day.

Bellatrix's avatar

Over 592 days I have:

Made 7835 responses (I didn’t say answers because not all my posts here are ‘answers’)
Asked 101 questions.

This equates to:

0.17 Q per day.
13.23 R per day.

If there is more maths involved… I pass. Any math(s) whizzes who want to calculate ratios please feel free.

I’ve asked 537 questions and responded 3835 times.

I’ll pass the math on to someone who cares.

FutureMemory's avatar

I joined 1180 days ago, and I’ve asked 94 questions.

I’ve written 6796 posts, which gives me an average of 5.75 posts per day.

Ratio: 72+ posts per question.

I’d be happy to never ask a question again. Most of them have been crap, honestly…I’d say the number of questions that truly were worth asking, meaning I really needed the info, or, really benefited from reading the answers people gave, is easily under 10.

Ok, I found it, thanks for telling me how.
25 questions, and 3,859 responses.
If someone is so inclined they can work out the math.

muppetish's avatar

18 questions to 1839 answers (and I’m shocked I asked eighteen questions, because I don’t remember asking that many.) I have been on Fluther for 739 days.

wilma's avatar

By the way, when I go to “edit” my profile, I can see the number for my responses. When I click on the number it says that I don’t have permission to see that information. Humm… I don’t see any way to change this, and yes, I am logged in.

When you go to your Privacy Settings, what do you see for “Show your answers to…”?
No one, or something else?

gailcalled's avatar

Math made easy;

Answer/questions shows you how to do it.

Bring up a calculator online. Type in your answer figure; divide that by your questions figure

5000 answers/ 250 questions. 5000/500 = 30 times more Q than A.

750 days. 5000/ 750 = 6.666 questions per day.

750 days. 750/250 = 3 answers per day.

wilma's avatar

Ah, @Brian1946 there they are. Yes I had the “No one” checked for who to show your answers to.

LuckyGuy's avatar

@PhiNotPi If you sit on your thumbs for the next 29 days you will have your magic number of answers per day.

My answer to question ratio is 85 to 1. I must think I’m pretty smart. Just ask me, I’ll tell you.

Sunny2's avatar

Without looking it up, I’d say 90 answers to 1 question. But who’s counting? I think of questions, but forget what I thought of when I get to the computer.

downtide's avatar

6603:52, a ratio of about 127 to one.

On Fluther for 992 days.

6.66 answers per day (oh boy, I talk like the devil don’t I?)

1 question every 19 days on average.

mangeons's avatar

Over 1363 days, I’ve asked 76 questions and given 2516 responses. I hate math too much to make the calculations, but do with that information what you will.

Coloma's avatar

I’m enjoying noticing the few of us that weasled out of doing the math. haha
Clearly we have an abundance of math heads here. lol

I believe my response to question ratio is easy enough for everyone to figure out.

I have .697 responses per day.
I have .002 questions per day (rounded up).

Professional lurker numbers.
