By plotting the ratio (y) of each users on the list, as a function of # of beers rated (x) , we can observe that there is a clear relation beween the number of beers rated and the ratio. This is highly expected. For instance any user with only 1 rating would near certainly have an ratio of 1.00...

Almost looks like 2 sub-populations, as there's a hint of a pelvic fin. It would be interesting to see if the two subsets could be distinguished by some other trait (nationality, age, socioeconomic group, travlriness, self-proclaimed completist tendencies, whatever)

That would give you a CTI of -0.187, and slot you in between BlackHaddock and yespr near the bottom of the completist ticker list.

Cool, thanks for calculating. Still lots of work to do, then ;-).

So I'm fairly close to the expected value, whatever that might mean.

That's hilarious. Berko and I at opposite ends of the spectrum. Same # of rates, but I've had from 2000 more breweries.

Completely wrong Grumbo like myself travels a great deal, I also go to beer festivals in England, Scotland and Belgium. Monthly 'beer exchange' meetings and the occasional 'Grand Tasting' have pushed me up the ladder too. California (and Las Vegas) has also added to my total with the opportunity of trying flights in so many bars/breweries. Add that my cruises to the West Coast of the US or back to the UK via Mexico, various Central American Countries and Caribbean islands.

Or I could mention this years 'Grand European Tour' where I drove to The Czech Republic staying in German Brew Pubs along the way (and five nights in Belgium).

You are correct in the fact it is an "uneducated stats opinion" though, so a good disclaimer at the end!

Ha, I honestly can not remember the last time I bought a beer at a Gas Station, apart from here: https://www.ratebeer.com/p/garage-brewing-company-and-pizzeria-temecula/39278/

I can't remember the last time I went to a gas station (seven years ago?) and yet my breweries-to-ratings ratio is 0.335. So much for the cheap gas station ticker theory.

One point though - some of the "top 50" leagues show your own total at the bottom. (even if you've not joined the illustrious top 50 yet) whilst others don't. What's the chance of getting your the site to show personal stats at the bottom of all leagues? This would be really helpful.

Cheers!

This is too much for my maths brain to work out.
Can someone tell me for my stats what it means?
i.e. can someone do the hard work for me and then tell me in words of one syllable what the numbers say about me as a drinker/rater
Thanks in advance
