posticon The RDS Board Activity Index


Over the past 4 years I have worked at creating a computed value system that shows the overall activity of a message board. Now Lesigner Girl has taken the formulas I have developed and made a small website that allows anyone to see how active their message board is. emoticon

So if you are curious about how your board is doing you can Go Here to find out.

General Guidelines Based on 250 board evaluations in June 2010:
0-3 = a board that is in trouble, the board needs to find new and active members (or get new life from the existing members).

3.00001 - 11 = A decent board in a good position to grow.

11.00001 - 29 = A nice board by the numbers, you should find the board a fun place to play.

29.00001 - 120 = A board that is definitely going places. The only thing that could stop it is administrative disaster.

120.00001 - 600 = Fantastic board

600.00001+ = One of the top 100 message boards on the Internet.

Re: The RDS Board Activity Index


I found the results interesting...

The Warhammer Quest board got
1.84445 (Board was created 4475 days ago)

while my Bible Notes board got
2.4739 (Board was created 2782 days ago)

Someone's Private Board (also related to Warhammer Quest) got 0.37046 (Board was created 1950 days ago)

My own impressions of those three boards are that the private board and the Warhammer Quest board are rather successful, though having periods of slowness, whereas the Bible Notes board has been very inactive for most of the time of its existence -- though I am beginning to change that one! emoticon

It seems to me what hurts the private board's rating (by the calculation method here given) is that people are required to gain membership BEFORE they can even view the private board. So, the members list will be inflated over against the Bible Notes and Warhammer Quest boards where membership will only be gained when the users actually make a post. Therefore, the topics and posts versus membership will be dramatically affected (negatively?) in the private board.

A general comment about forum activity in this type of gaming community: many players will visit and read and never, or almost never, post anything! emoticon

I give the details below that were used in the Calculate AI page.

Warhammer Quest board stats
Members: 487
Topics: 1202
Posts: 9358
Date board was created (?): 05/21/2003 (earliest post I saw).

Bible Notes board stats
Members: 8
Topics: 196
Posts: 258
Date board was created (?): 01/08/2008

Someone's Private Board (also related to Warhammer Quest)
Members: 507
Topics: 224
Posts: 774
Date board was created (?): 4/19/2010

EDIT: Then I decided to put in the stats for a private board which is located on a private gaming site -- which I am soon leaving. Many days I was the only one posting.

Unnamed private board (also for WHQ)(not hosted here, sorry)
Members: 104
Topics: 883
Posts: 7334
Date board was created (?): 11/08/2009 (oldest post I could find)
5.16748
(Board was created 2112 days ago)

My personal stats for that board
2596 total posts | (1.23 posts per day {ave.} / 35.40% of all posts)

Without my posts, that board would have gotten a rating of 3.46437

Re: The RDS Board Activity Index


I visited The Digital Monochrome Learning Forum and saw that they had a good bit of activity there. So, I plugged their numbers into the Activity Index calculator:

Result: 3.4916
(Board was created 3502 days ago)


Looking pretty good. emoticon

Re: The RDS Board Activity Index


So, I got curious... How does The Runboard Directory board compare?

Result: 11.46088
(Board was created 3568 days ago)


emoticon "A nice board by the numbers, you should find the board a fun place to play. " emoticon

Then I thought Runboard Support might even get a better rating:

Result: 16.90623
(Board was created 4578 days ago)


YUP!

Re:


I think so, too! However, I think it was actually at its peak a couple years ago.

Re: The RDS Board Activity Index


I just got the results for my OW-WHQ Old Warrior board, which though very active for a couple years, has been very dead for a few years.

Result: 9.75243
(Board was created 3430 days ago)


If I artificially change the board creation date to about 5 years later, I think the formulae will calculate about what result that board would have had in its glory days...

Estimated result then follows:

Result: 11.72019
(Board was created 1604 days ago)

Re: The RDS Board Activity Index


Hey I like the new star rating on the index thing:

Bible Notes got

Image

It is interesting that the rating went down slightly after my recent activity. Oh, it is probably because most of my topics are Read Only and will NOT have any replies added to them. So, my reasoning is that the number of total topics versus the number of total posts will bring the rating down, unless enough replies are made elsewhere in the board to offset this.

EDIT: Aha! I seem to be right about my assumption. I added one reply to a topic and the new rating became: 2.34527. So, it went up by .0061
