I've been spending too much time in the forums lately, and have noticed an amazing relationship between the number of posts made by a person, and the quality of their contributions to the forum.

I therefore reveal my theory about "Hubber Quality Index (or HQI) to everyone.

Here's my theory:

1. 10 posts per day is the baseline.

2. If a hubber has more than 10 posts per day, its more likely the hubber is an empty vessel, and just contributes noise on the forums.

3. If a hubber has less than 10 posts per day, the more likely the hubber is a sensible person whose posts are valuable.

4. The results gained by this method are 90% reliable.

====================

Number of posts per week are easily calculated from the forum statistics for the hubber concerned. I've taken a month to be 30 days, and a year to be 365 days. (A week is 7 days, if you need that information as well)

So - Go to it. Work out the HQI for some of the hubbers you think are worthwile members of the community, and those who you think are just empty vessels.

Post your results here, and help prove or disprove my theory.

Have fun,

Eric G.

(EDIT: post corrected, because originally I said 10 posts per week when it should have been 10 per day.)
