Could you explain the “time to rate” graph more? Is that the time people take to rate, or the time allowed to rate? Sorry if I’m missing something.

@BlackBulletIV My guess is that it is the time, in minutes, that you have to rate each game if you want to rate all of them.

summaky is right

if you want to rate every single game, rate 4 hours a day for 20 days, you get about 3.5 minutes per game at the moment.

And for all you who bother looking at the comments, here’s a bonus graph =)

If you want to extrapolate into the future, assume sigmoidal growth, not exponential.

the estimated growth is calculated like this:

last ld count * ((last ld count / total of all ld entries so far) + 1)

so if last LD generated, say, 20% of all LD entries so far, the graph assumes the future LDs to do the same.

I think you are underestimating your wild projections
