hiya

found this was a thing

maybe just have it so the x posts per day number must not be greater than total number of posts? or something? i dunno. this happened when i viewed the profile of the most recently joined user.

My interpretation of it was that it was the average rate at which the user was making posts, but not necessarily the number of posts that a user made. Like a car that drives half a mile in 1 minute is going at an average speed of 2 miles per minute, yet it hasn't moved 2 miles yet. I could be wrong.

eh, that works with a car, because it's saying the car is moving at a rate of two miles per minute, but with a user who just joined, not only have they not posted that many posts yet, but they haven't even existed on the board for a day, if that makes sense

like i said, stupid minor thing, not something that really makes any difference whatsoever

If the calculation is a simple matter of the number of posts divided by the user's time registered on the forum, then perhaps it can adjust the total days to be always greater than one, or maybe round that number up to get a more "logical" reading. This is just my 2 cents.
Some pseudocode to illustrate my point:
float postsPerDay; /* Average posts per day */
int posts; /* Total number of posts */
float days; /* Time registered, measured in days */
postsPerDay = ((float) posts) / days; /* may cause problems if days < 1 */
postsPerDay = ((float) posts) / ((days < 1.0f)? 1.0f: days); /* days having a minimum of 1 in the calculation */
postsPerDay = ((float) posts) / ceil(days); /* round up the days to the next integer */
The first one being a simple average, the next two to give the more "logical" answer, using 2 different approaches, if you get what I'm trying to put across. Doubt any change will actually happen, but I guess it can't hurt to pitch an idea.

this is only a stupid statistic (that on older Acmlmboard was used to calculate a 'projected date for 5000 posts' or whatever)

so, yeah
