The total number of posts or views in relation to a given thread is there for everyone to see. Percentage of posts in relation to the number of views not so.

So how do we rate the overall popularity of a thread? By postcount alone? By the number of viewers? The percentage of the viewers who bother to post?

I'm listing the top 3 in 3 of the most popular sections here in BC, visible on page 1 of each section. Matchthreads and stickies not included.

I. Bangladesh Cricket

1. The Shakib Al Hasan Thread: Posts-5994; Visits-282,175; Percentage-2.12%

2. The Mohammed Ashraful Thread: Posts-3670; Visits-169.418; Percentage-2.17%

3. The Tamim Iqbal Khan Thread: Posts-3152; Visits-140,676; Percentage-.2.24%

II. Other Sports

3. Following Siddiqur Rahman: Bangladesh's golfing star: Posts-264; Visits-15,090; Percentage-1.75%

Some threads, because of the manic dedication of a handful of posters have very high percentage of posts. For example the NHL season thread : 2011-12:-

1. Views (pretty much the same 10 guys)- 4096

2. Posts (pretty much the same 4 guys, one guy in particular)- 197

3. Percentage- 4.81%

Not bad for a seasonal thread.

A special event thread also offers interesting numbers. For example the Euro 2012: Match Thread (Group Stage, Quarters, Semis, Final):-


1. Views- 6680

2. Posts- 586

3. Percentage- 8.77%
