Clique Coefficent (Cc)

From the numerous forum threads it's clear that a lot of people are of the belief that "Click Cliques" operate within Epz.

For many this raises the question "Am I in a clique?", Well now with the use of the Lobsterboy patented method you can calculate your "Clique Coefficent" and compare your Cliquiness to others:

The Method:
1. Add up the votes on your last 10 pictures. In my case: 304
2. Now divide by 10 to get your average votes: 30.4
3.Now goto your recent Activity and you should see how many people have favourited you. For me: 106
4. Divide the your average votes by your favourites to get your own Clique Coefficent (Cc): 0.28 - expressed as a percentage 28%

So in my case only 28% of my "friends" on here think my shots are worth clicking everytime.

If everyone puts their Cc on this thread then we should be able to work out what an average Cc is and if your Epz experience is more or less Cliquey than everyone else.

Just a bit of fun..no "click thread" type ranting please

Hmm...
1. Votes on last 10: 328
2. Divide by 10 (average): 32.8
3. No. of people who have 'favourited' me: 8
4. Divide avg. votes (32.8) by above (8): Clique Co-efficient: 4.1

Err....is that good? Or bad?

Depends if you want to be in a clique or not! I would say that's not very clique Doug Wink

Right then, according to my calculator:

11.6 / 0 =

Well, at least my mother loves me (I think) Smile

It's just not chique if you're not in a clique (or something like that). I guess I'm missing out. I may have to resort to drastic measures like storming out (with or without flouncing).

You forgot to factor in the meeting coefficient.

229/10 = 22.9, 22.9/9 (f) = 2.54recurring

Therefore Cc = 254%
by your method anyway.

and now I am wondering about the purpose of my life.

55/10=5.5

5.5 / 7 = 0.78

The meeting coefficient(M) is still under consideration, for most case 6.28 is a workable figure for M.. we hope to calculate it to 14 decimals soon.

OK - well I think so far we have established that 100% or greater is non-clique...or just people with no friends!
