Also, fighting in a chatroom on a Monday morning before having coffee when it's moody prone time is a bad idea.
 
user202362
I wonder what I will be better at: being a firefighter or a chess player? Or maybe I will be bad at both?
 
I suggest lighting the pieces before your next game - if they're extinguished before you win, then go for firefighter.
 
user202362
play with fire and get burned ... thanks for the advice, maybe you just want to watch me catch fire and burn (burning baby burn - remember that song?)

I haven't seen any others, apart from that edX project which I'm not surprised about.
 
I wonder which incarnation that is.

So the pattern is: edX sites, CMS sites, and Russian imports have the lowest V/P ratio.

[ SmokeDetector ] Manually reported question: does a period come after diolage by suzie on english.stackexchange.com
 
user259867
On the opposite extreme are the sites that are either discussion-y or have strict posting requirements, or are inactive yet of good quality.
 
Did I post this here before?
Votes per month on RU.SO
 
How did that happen?
 
user259867
Migration.
 
(up through like June 4th)
Folks voted a LOT more immediately after the import
Votes per month / all posts visible on the site per month
RUSO:
SO:
As of May, that ratio was the same on both sites
 
user259867
OK, so ru.SO stats are brought down by its dark past.
 
user259867
Sharepoint was an import too. And Sound design. Those again have low v/p.
 
user259867
So, among "normal" sites, those that grew out of Area 51, Magento has the lowest v/p.
 
@NormalHuman this was an extremely common problem on SE 1.0 sites; folks routinely complained about posting something and getting... crickets. No upvotes, downvotes, comments, death-threats... nothing.
Which, it turns out, is a great way to get folks to leave.
 
I love getting death threats in response to things I put on SO
 
user202362
2:14 AM
People don't get angry if they don't care
 
@JamesENL No, those were just Russian.
 
oh
 
That makes way more sense
 
Interesting data about V/P ratio..
 
2:16 AM
> New users are often complaining that SE is being a little too strict with the moderation and the second the question is posted, downvotes are poured in and it is closed immediately
that's a claim I see everytime... yet is the rarest of the stuff I normally see
 
Warnock's dilemma, named for its originator Bryan Warnock, is the problem of interpreting a lack of response to an online posting. The term originally referred to Usenet posts, but has been applied to mailing lists, blogs, Web forums, and web content in general. The dilemma arises because a lack of response does not necessarily imply that no one is interested in the topic, but could also mean for example that readers find the content to be exceptionally good (leaving nothing for commenters to add). On many internet forums, only around 1% of users create new posts, while 9% reply and 90% are lurkers...

Only takes one person to find a finger in their can of soup and bam suddenly you're serving finger soup.
@tchrist that has a name? Nice.
 
I remember there was a post about how people voted the first X minutes after a post was created
it has to be Jon's post
maybe I am confused with the FGITW post meta.stackexchange.com/a/225034/213575
 
People are strange... fast response (down+close vote) and no response yield same result -> leave
 
no, the first yields some whining and drama then slander
not specifically in that order or even in sequence, mind you
 
user259867
2:24 AM
@tchrist 1 and 2 can be ruled out if there are no votes.
 
4 and 5 have to be common enough.

I do think something like this (although maybe slightly different) would help. Right now, when a user gets a downvote, they likely don't know what that means except for 'bad'. Sure, they could've read the help center... but how many people do that? 1%? Even Jeff Atwood supports JIT learning. — hichris123 32 secs ago
I wonder how many people actually read the help center.
 
2:32 AM
I did
 
@NormalHuman I said 4 and 5 so you just had to think of 6, now dincha?
 
@Braiam yeah, but you're an active user. The vast majority of users are under 200 rep.
 
I didn't, though... until around 500 rep and found meta.
 
@hichris123 I mean, before posting my first question
 
Mm. I didn't.
 
2:34 AM
in fact, before doing anything... I'm the kind of guy that reads manuals before using stuff
sometimes before I buy them
 
@AndrewT. I remember finding meta in the olden days of mSO when I figured out that I could get a 100 rep bonus for getting an account on meta. :P
 
Back when MSO ruled all the meta....!
 
Many moons ago.
