What is it? Sploofactor. Search turns up nothing, but it is shown on profile page.

hi.. here's what i could find about 'sploofactor'::

"A Sploofactor is a calculation that ranks players by how many quizzes they have taken, their average accuracy, and their average time per question, using a formula which creates a higher "Sploofactor" for good performance in each of those three categories."

and here is a discussion that began back in 2006. it outlined the formula used to calculate 'sploofactor' but due to a glitch in the system, it was no longer accurate as of Jan 2008:

if anyone has posted an update on that, i haven't read it, so i really don't know if the values are currently correct. maybe one of the editors will chime in and give us the latest info.

happy sploofusing.

Thanks Chyenne.

That seems to reward quiz takers who key on areas they're familiar with and penalize those who venture into unknown areas to learn something, or just for the fun of it.

The site, in that respect, would seem to be at odds with itself.

So ignore it. Many of us do.

In 1.0 there was a Leaderboard for Sploofactor. I know the formula has something to do with the number of qizzes taken, the speed with which those quizzes were taken, and the accuracy on the quizzes. It's a mystery to me why Sploofactor was carried over into 2.0 -- particularly when the leaderboard for it was dropped.
