Turtle Talk Tallies: Comments and recs report from the week of February 10

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

bshock, SpinningGamera, & retlag take home the commenting awards this week.

Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday! Only one more day until we see if the momentum from the Duke game can carry over to the remainder of the season. Until then, I hope you enjoy this week's version of Turtle Talk Tallies.

To clear a couple of things up that may not have been properly explained last week:

  1. We are only showing recs/comments stats > 1.00
  2. Top rec'd comments > 4.00 (meaning 5.00 or more)
  3. I have decided to continue to omit Gamethreads from these statistics.

General statistics from this week:

  1. Total comments were down 14% from last week.
  2. The community was EXTREMELY stingy with recs this week dishing out 1,127 fewer recs than last week (May have something to do with Mr. Prince committing last week, but we shall see)

As I mentioned last week, this is a work in progress so feel free to share any comments or constructive criticisms. More than likely if it is a simple inquiry, I will be happy to include it to the report in future weeks. Enjoy!

Total Comments

bshock takes top commenter this week, meaning a whole lot of folks needed to be put in their place. I think a special shout out goes to nmcvicker for managing to take 7th place while having a newborn this week. Congrats on the new Terp!

Total Recs

Take a wild guess who won this category this week... you guessed it WhirlingGodzilla, I mean SpinningGamera. You will see in a moment, however, that .gifs were not the most successful method for earning recs this week.

Rec to Comment Ratio

Hey SpinningGamera, guess what... you're slacking. Even with a 4.69 rec/comment ratio you are down about 50% from last week. So there! But seriously, good job. Honorable mention goes to Brendan Darr with 4.2 over 15 comments.

Top Rec'd Comments

Congrats to retlag for coming up with the winning recipe for taking down Gamera and it wasn't the cold weather (had to look that one up, yay for Wikipedia). Apparently all it takes is 28 parts royalty and a dash of Dinich.
