It's pretty easy to do with a calculator, too:

If you had 5.3666 at 120 votes, and 5.4032 at 124 votes:

(5.4032 x 124 - 5.3666 x 120) / (124-120) = 6.5

The 4 votes from 121 to 124 averaged 6.5

In english, you can find your total score (not average), find the difference between then and now, then figure out what votes made that change. Above, your total score was (120 x 5.3666 = 644). Then later it was (5.4032 x 124 = 670). Four new votes increased your score by 26, so the average of those new votes was (26 / 4 = 6.5).

You can't know for sure if it was 7, 5, 8, 6, or 10, 10, 2, 4, unless you also wrote down your average at 121, 122, and 123.

Ok, ok, a spreadsheet would make it easier. =)

Hasn't moved at all today -- slow/no voting, I guess, at least for mine:

Nice comments, one in particular that I can't really discuss without giving mine away... but I'll just say a general "thanks very much".

Yep, been a steady decline all day today. That happens around day 2. Then it'll flatten out a bit. Later, just a bit past mid-week, there will be a slight rise. And finally, a chance of snow or frozen rain on Sunday. :-)

6 guesses, 1 correct. I must have not been very communicative of my style. All comments are positive though. :)

4, but 2 have since corrected themselves. Several are getting it right.

Did another one just get it right instead of wrong?

You got me!

Now is it my style that tipped you guys off, or are you just looking for Timfy's style and now assume it's me? ;-)

I wonder what is it that makes some photos to provoke a lot of guesses? A familiar face, a resemblance of one of earlier shots? ...so far out of my 13 comments only one had a guess, albeit a correct one (thanks, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Melethia!). I'd rather have wrong guesses in this challenge than no guesses at all...

You found me. And for the record, this style is sooo NOT Timfy. Not that there's anything wrong with that. ;-)
01/14/2010 07:45:17 PM · #321
Ohhhhhh...a second guess...correct!

5 for 5 correct guesses. I'm surprised the 6th commenter who knows me well didn't get it (yet).

Some people shoot the same shot or near exact subject/model and for me that doesn't count as style but you do many different things very well and offer a wide variety of work so, you may be hard to spot. Personally, I don't repeat shots but I do gravitate towards certain type of subjects and my location...well...

Bear commented on one of my pix "Dang, I figured this one might have been yours based on location and sense of space, but it's not "typical" Pawdrix."

The "sense of space" part I found interesting and suppose gets to the bottom of it, in terms of style, where location is just what it is.

eta: Lev - I just opened up your last 10 Challenge entries and they all couldn't be more different from next.

well, Steve, I would not discount the location as one of defining features of your style. For me your images almost invariably say "New York" even when you shoot in Paris :).
