how will you adjust the data you collect to reflect the percentage of members that see this, and then are inclined to respond to it? this just doesn't seem to be a practical idea.

+1 anyway

68 thousand caps members and only 18 clicks, that means very few read this message board.

I am reading this but not recommending it because I would hate to see it as an "All Time Recommended Post".  Sorry.  I'm sure others who are reading are doing the same.  You might get more responses if you had people leave a comment instead of a rec.

I second Ron.....

Also a simple query either to Jake or Chris ( The MF admin) - would suffice.....

A good proxy is Sum of all active players - you should post that - no need for rec s

I am recommending, I would love to see a TP calculate this out and see what the thought process is on the variables. Too funny.

We have about 1 million people who visit CAPS each month, and somwhere around 50,000 or so who make a pick each month--I'll double check the last number and re-post if the actual number is significantly different.

Lots of rec-whoring lately in CAPS.

Well, in this case it is rather anti-rec-whoring. 20minutedelay is one of my players and I chose it as a somewhat neutral presenter of the "census" ...

I wish I could negative rec this.  This is the cheapest attempt to get recs I've ever seen.

negative rec from me. I see that port is merely wasting bandwith since his blistering stock analysis has fallen flat recently.

I don't know who has time to rec this... Let alone COMMENT about it...  wait a minute.... 

This must be some plan of Obama's to stimulate the economy through pumping MF with valueless Recs!!!!  Doesnt he know that it will just cause rec inflation and lead to global disaster!!!!!  Why isn't anyone thinking of the children!

Recommending doesnt really do anything.

I have been on sites where people have 10 different screen names just so they can recommend or talk to themselves so they can create a "buzz".

I would rather have a Mohito and get that buzz

So there are 60,000 fish in the pond. On your first attempt fishing you caught a total of 44 and threw them back in. On the second fishing adventure you catch........ A shatload of flack over an experiment where people are chastising you for being a flocking rec whore. What gives?

I thought the post was a fun idea. Too bad others might be worried that they would get surpassed in the number of recs over 2 or 3 simple blogs.

Port- How many random attempts would it take for you to work your magic? If the players really understood what you were doing maybe the next 2 might work.

Later. I am going salmon fishing and I will probably end up with some lake trout:( The water is still too cold where I am and I have had no luck the last two outings.
