Lol. I could use a definition too, even though I understand the basic concept.

Elo is an equation that analyzes your forum posts, debates, etc to determine your intelligence. It goes from a scale of 1000 to 9000, with 9000 meaning that person is mega smart, and anything close to 1000 means that that person is almost certifiably retarded.

the average around here is usually 2000 to 3000

But, really, the idea that I make mistakes while modding is a pervasive, yet demonstrably false, notion.

This is the formula for ELO, and it's entirely based on debates:

100*(W+9L)/10W

+25 if you're the instigator and -25 for the contender.

W = winner's Elo
L = loser's Elo.

This cant be true. That means I should get 168 ELO points if I beat Roy, yet last time I beat him I got maybe 10. I got maybe 15 when I beat Mikal. The rewards from noobs are higher for some reason when I do it. Broken system.

Then what is percentile. 99.04 seems pretty good to me. ELO and Percentile seem to be a bunch of made up PC nonsense, an invention of this sites gods, that you all worship.

Rofl...

ELO was a system that was invented long ago by chess players, not by people on this site.

Percentile is, admittedly, a broken system of measurement that places you among a percentile of the site's total registered users based on your wins. Why this is broken is that there's a lot of users who sign up then never finish a debate or don't debate at all. by the time you get your first win you're better than 60-70% of users. I would hardly call this system worshiped, though.

I would hardly call this system worshiped, though.

What do you hope to gain? We all worship this site in some way, as if we are praying to the gods.

You're no different.

Good luck!

Rofl...

ELO was a system that was invented long ago by chess players, not by people on this site.

Percentile is, admittedly, a broken system of measurement that places you among a percentile of the site's total registered users based on your wins. Why this is broken is that there's a lot of users who sign up then never finish a debate or don't debate at all. by the time you get your first win you're better than 60-70% of users. I would hardly call this system worshiped, though.

What do you hope to gain?

From getting ELO? Nothing, but it's more of a trick question because I don't debate for ELO. I debate to learn things and, at a deeper level, because I just enjoy debating things in general. Materialistic rewards don't really matter to me.

That's...not really true. Even if I buy this, then that means you're included in this, so I don't really get the point of this.

Percentile is not a very good measure for the site. ELO is better. If you want to gage your debate record, look at the ELO number not percent. Your debate record is very low. Again, only if you care, you need to work on actually winning some.

You are just another politician, and that is just the truth.
