I'm starting to wonder if we should separate the two.

I can hide contact details for logged out users, that's probably the most reasonable of choices.

Yes please.

popularity bars are logarithmic now

I've done a bit of charting of popularities for prods, and noticed this:

This basically means that even though most prods only reach less than 100 views, the barrier to enter the 1+% club is much higher, which feels it makes it a bit pointless to me; the spread of popularities are a lot more even and interesting when charted on a log-scale. Note that this won't affect any other calculation internally, it's only for the bar displays.

I think that's good news; indeed it makes more sense this way. But I think it requires a little bit more tuning: for example 60% popularity seems exaggerated for this prod with a handful of comments.

It's been on the site for 10 years and has gained an above average viewcount; the 60% is perfectly normal.

Now it's finally an useful feature! That's actually quite a big improvement!

Before it was hard finding a prod above 1% popular, but now it's hard to find a prod that's *under* 50%. Even my most recent adds with 1 rating get around 30%. Can it be stretched out a bit so 50% means popular rather than just average? The majority of prods have a small number of votes/views and should still be low on the scale.

There'll be further tweaks, dont worry.

The popular demo marks the upper value. Oh wait, just 96% :)

Just ML the whole thing off. :p
"Do you think this prod's popularity is <too low | fair | too high> ?"

zavie: could as well give everyone 100% ;)

replace the percentage with 1 to 5 icons of Taylor Swift's head!
Everybody is famous \o/
A bit too famous though, at least it feels like that.
Maybe map it like f(x)=x², x€[0,1] ... sth like that(?)

Oh well and Maali's ranking idea is not too bad
added on the 2019-10-01 10:48:45 by HellMood HellMood
Let's use Maali's head x 5 for the negative ratings

Cool to see popularities rise, but needs tweaking as everyone else said.
Case in point, I click to sort by popularities, to find the least popular demo. The smallest was 5%. I click to see what that is, then I go back, it's popularity rose to 8%.

How about showing the popularity as the percentile in the popularity distribution? I.e. 70% means more popular than 70% of prods. This would actually be a very informative number in its own right. And it would, by its very nature, use the scale optimally.

Not impossible, I'll think about it.
added on the 2019-10-05 16:31:11 by Gargaj Gargaj
Logarithmic is better than linear, percentile would be ace =)

What about showing the original raw number, e.g. in the tooltip?

+1 for quantile!

So I've been doing a little light updating on prodlist.php and while there's no UI for it (yet), you can now do stuff like this:

-> all Amiga AGA releases from Revision that finished 7th place or less

-> all Farbrausch & Rebels releases until 2016 june
