I mentioned this problem over a year ago, but nothing's been done it about so I thought I should mention it again.
Right now the Average Votes Per Video stat is not being calculated correctly because it isn't including the number of Unsifted videos and PQ videos in the formula. I'll give you an example by using the account of mas8705
, only because I want to use an account whose numbers are currently stable, due to him not being here for a while.
Right now mas8705's Average Votes Per Video is shown as 28.35. However, by doing the math, I can tell that the formula included neither his Unsifted videos nor his PQ videos, because his total Votes Received count (9129) divided by his Sifted Videos (322) equals 28.35 votes/video. Now remember he received a total of 9129 votes for ALL of his videos, including
his Unsifted and PQ videos. Therefore the Average Votes Per Video formula should
look like this: Average Votes Per Video
= Total Votes/TOTAL videos
where: TOTAL videos
= Sifted videos + Unsifted videos + PQ videos
therefore: Average Votes Per Video
= Total Votes/(Sifted videos + Unsifted videos + PQ videos)
Therefore, if we were to plug in numbers from mas8705's account, it would look like this: Average Votes Per Video
= 9129 votes/(322 Sifted videos + 0 Unsifted videos + 289 PQ videos)
As you can see, this makes a HUGE difference in the Average Votes Per Video statistic. Therefore if we're going to use this stat it needs to be properly calculated. I'm no code monkey, but I would think that modifying a simple formula wouldn't entail that much work at all, so I hope it can be fixed soon. Thx.
