[QUOTE="Classic Panfan, post: 1581256, member: 29448"]^^ I don't think so. This is where multiple likes on a single post really screws the numbers up, I think. Having posts where 5 or 10+ people like it is going to have a lot less impact on total post count compared to post count since the change, so it becomes less ignore-able here. Also, if people are going back and liking posts from before the move, it may help people who may not have been completely active in the time since. I think Nomyt and SML benefited from that.[/QUOTE]
yeah, I wish there were a better way of getting around multiple likes per post. Other than a completely arbitrary "Maybe lop off 25%?"

Average number of likes per post with at least one like would be a slightly better indicator, I think. It'd filter out all the old posts and all of those in forum games or procedural threads that never get likes in the first place. It'd also be completely impossible to calculate without a bot.

Looks like I made a 10,000 post celebration topic February 8, 2014. I counted 100 posts between then and the forum change.

575/(11093-9900)=48.20%

I'm a black hole of likes. And like a black hole I give likes extremely rarely unless pretty hammered
