It appears our resident Tanuki snuck past the 1000 post mark recently. Welcome to geekdom, Tanuki!

Well, since you are the person who has been most at the page of us all, I don't think this makes you more geek then you already are.


TJP geekiness factor = [posts/(actual date - date joined) - level of Japanese knowledge] + references to anime in username, avatar and signature




I guess that makes me (as of today) = [206 posts/(Current date - date joined= 155 days) -1(Beginner)]+1 reference to anime/manga in avitar = total score 1.33.

Should we count my signature as geeky? That would raise my score to 2.33

Definitely. Hm, the equation needs some fixing:

TJP geekiness factor = [posts/(actual date - date joined) - level of Japanese knowledge] + references to anime/manga in username, avatar and signature + geekiness in username, avatar and signature

That means that a geeky anime/manga reference gets two points!
Should we add something related to the shoutbox to the equation? If that's so, I'm screwed. ;)

Mine would be: [(1025/417) - 1] + 0 + 0 = 1.46

Chris Hart is geekier than I! Darn.

I was thinking Japanese knowledge would be on a scale of 1-10, but I must agree that geekiness in username/avi/sig should be counted.

Just a thought - we might want to include "unusual" locations, such as mine, in this score as well, bumping my score as of 12/16 1632GMT to 3.34

I wonder how many people could figure out my real location from my sig?
