Ben's Top Ten +10 @ SC4D
« on: January 03, 2012, 09:41:07 AM »


Ben's Top Ten +10 @ SC4D is a weekly list of Mayor Diaries ranked according to a formula. The main component of the formula is non-author, unique replies to author post ratio. The formula does reward consistency, and uses a four week rolling average - the current week has the most influence, with influence decreasing from the three previous weeks. Each week the top ten MDs will be featured with a background image from the number one MD. I'm also tracking positions 11-20 - these will be noted as the +10 in numerical order.

As with my other Top Tens, I am going to start by back-tracking very slightly to 22 Dec 2011...

Congratulations to the first number 1 -  Corsica! I wish that was where I had spent Christmas...

I'll be back in a few days with more. Please don't hesitate to inform me of any typos, spelling errors.

Very interesting list Ben. 
Must have taken you a bit of time to apply that formula to each and every MD. 
Great work!

Looks good idea.

I would put only the 5 first MDs as there are few MD still alive and I afraid of seeing always the same MDs in disorder in this ranking

Good idea Girafe, but unfortunately Ben's Top Five doesn't have the same ring to it as Ben's Top Ten
I would agree with excluding the 11th position and on though.

Don't exagerate, Antoine, there's quite some MDs active around there. ;)

Good idea, Ben. I've seen your thread over at ST and I liked the idea.

Interesting idea! :thumbsup:
I have recently seen at Simtropolis, but there I don't know most of the MDs. Here I know almost all the MD so I'll follow the topic. :)

Hi, rooker1 and Girafe. Thanks for your comments. Over the last 4 weeks around 40-50 MDs have been active, which I feel justifies the +10. I'll see how things go and assess trends over time. When I started my second BTT over at ST the same CJ was number one for the first 13 weeks - and it was competing with 200 others, so you never can tell what will happen which is all part of the excitement. The formula is also set up so that even a brand new MD can compete with a Hall of Famer.

Hi, Dai9988. Thank you for your support!

Hi, art128. I think you'll like today's update even more  ;)

Hi, Kergelen. Thanks for your comment and support.

Hi, Schulmanator. I am excited, too - always fun to start something new, and it will be interesting to see how it works out.

Hi, bat. Glad to see you here, thanks for the support.

Ben's Top Ten

Going back just a week ago and Homura Region jumped up to be the new number one!

There are two new entries: Nagagonia in at 9, and Tarkusian Cities in at 10. 

I'll be back in a few days with this week's update.

Hi, art128. It may have been a surprise, but it was clear from the results last time who the crowd favorite was.

Hi, rooker1. Thank you for your support again, Robin!

Hi, DerChrischi. Well, if your MD is popular during the previous week it will go up, otherwise down. Glad you liked it.

Hi, bat. I was also looking forward to seeing the first winner of the year... wait no longer!

Ben's Top Ten

Just like last time, there are two new entries and a new number one!

Congratulations to AntigOne's Project! Most of the time when I choose the image for BTT I have a favorite in mind, but badsim made it very hard - far too many great ones to choose from!

The two new entries are The region of Pirgos at 7, and Santa Barbara County at 9. 

Have a great week, everyone!

wow, the first week 15, then 13 and today 12! Very good for my region. :)
I like that you include BTT +10, thus some regions that aren't in the Top Ten, know where we are.
The top ten are great regions!
Fantastic job benedict! :thumbsup:
