I was recently browsing through the portfolios when I came to Shannon's updated bio entry. I thought it was pretty interesting so I'll try to do the same thing. Mind you, these are not scalvert numbers by any means ;)

Nice! I was thinking about doing the same thing, but I have 4 or 5 more challenges to go.

Should give people hope.

I'll post my scores I guess in a few weeks.

average place: 321.6
favs: 0

Second 10
average score: 4.963

Fixored.

Sorry, I couldn't pass that up. ;)

Haven't entered fifty yet, so:

1st 21: 5.343

2cnd 21: 5.677

Those figures would make you think I barely improved. But I really have - you believe me dont you?
02/28/2006 02:24:15 AM · #14
Hmmm, not much progress.

1st 25
Score Place % Favs
5.381 109.6 52 15

2nd 25
Score Place % Favs
5.632 107.1 66 16

Oh yeah - only one Honorable mention and one other Top 10

My First 25 Challenges
Avg score: 5.1553
Avg place: 136
Avg percentile: 51%
Ribbons: 0
Honorable Mentions: 0
Favorites: 34

My Last 25 Challenges
Avg score: 5.5513
Avg place: 139
Avg percentile: 61%
Ribbons: 0
Honorable Mentions: 0
Favorites: 24

Note that placement is better judged in percentile because of the fluctuation in entries. Example during my first 25 challenge there was an average of 281 entries per challenge but during my last 25 challenges the average jumped to 360 entries per challenge. Thats why my percentile is higher (61%) in my last 25 challenges even though my placement is lower (-3)than my first 25 challenges.

You have a point there Scott. I'll revise mine and see how much the difference is ;)

Ok, where do I find out my Avg place and Avg Percentile? If it's done by math... I don't do math! It doesn't like me. LoL
02/28/2006 10:36:18 AM · #18
Hey Lorrie :) It's next to your average score in the challenge columns ;)
02/28/2006 10:37:38 AM · #19
I'm not going to redo the math (i did this a while back) ... but I will be the first to say my numbers went down :)

I'd say a pretty big jump.

Not quiote the same #'s as everyone else as far as amount of entries...
Here it goes anyways...
First seven challenges: 5.65
Last seven challenges: 5.90

Steady enough imporvement for me. It is funny looking at pictures I had taken before I started here. At that time i thought they were really good. Now going back I laugh, but am happy to see how far I have came already.
