You are gonna have to give me an example of how this works...

I have 325 XP, the sum of my reps is 458, over 77 posts. The node with the highest rep has 22 rep (and there only one that high), and the lowest is -1 (also a singleton). Although the mean rep is 5.95 (less than $NORM=6.17), the mode is much smaller, at 3 (13 writeups), which is much less than $NORM.

How would you compute my SNR?

    Short answer: you can't! You, my friend, are ALL signal *g*.

    More specifically, since all we have is an upper bound on how many of your XP come from writeups, and that upper bound is actually higher than your total XP, you lie on the other side of the boundary condition where the two are equal.

    I conclude by this that you don't vote much? Either that or you are the victim of some VERY bad luck with Tim's random number generator :)
