Success Rate Feature

Postby Josh Lewis » Fri Feb 25, 2011 7:36 am

I think it would be cool if summitpost had a success rate feature. How it would work would be based on your climbing log. When you sign a page there is a check box which says "Were you successful?" which it would be based on that. If you sign 4 climbing logs and have only succeeded on only 3 of the logs you signed, then on your profile somewhere (perhaps in or below the climbing log section) it could say something like "Your Success Rate: 75%". This would be a neat feature in my opinion and would help me keep track of my success rate. What it would do is count up all the success checked off and divide it by the amount of climbing logs you have. It shouldn't be too hard to make as long as the ability to count your check boxes wasn't. Any opinions on this anyone?

Maybe people should concentrate more on adding quality content to SP rather than on bells and whistles that only a few want or need.

Not directed at you personally, Josh-- I know you've been busy with pages as well.

Today I realized that even when you don't succeed there is always returning which as long as you went back to the climbing log (after going to that mountain and finishing the job) it would "increase your success rate". But I see no one these days likes showing there "shame". :) Well within the past week my success rate is 0% for the past 4 mountain trips. And on 3 of them I put out a good effort. I'll be back! 8)
