Hi, all,

My apologies if this question has been asked and answered already. My question being, what exactly is the Sploofactor and how is it calculated. I looked in the FAQ and elsewhere and couldn't find an answer. Doesn't mean it's not there, I just couldn't find it

Thanks in advance,

-- Dana

on the menu across the top of the page under 'leaderboards' went to the last choice 'sploofactor'. that's where i found this..

""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.""

maybe someone else can explain it in more detail.

Thanks, Chyenn!

At last an answer, but when looking at the leaderboard there, I was amazed. At how many quizzes people have taken and their Sploofactor score. Mine is 2.91 while the leader seems to be RShackleford hanging in there at 261.23. BIG difference LOL!

Thanks again for your answer to a question that had been vexing me for a while!

i think we sploofusers should help each other out when we can so everyone gets the most out of this site.

happy sploofusing!

For probably more information than you really want about how the Sploofactor is calculated, read the following thread:

Thanks, Zeedee, all that math made my head hurt LOL! But I think I finally understand the Sploofactor now! -- Dana
