I didn't see any posts about it here, but there are a lot of errors with the numbers and charts.

http://www.warcraftrealms.com/realmstats.php

All the A:H ratios are off for every server.

http://www.warcraftrealms.com/weeklyfactionactivity.php?serverid=678

Here's a chart for my server, Altar of Storms. I don't think the chart numbers and the numbers on http://www.warcraftrealms.com/realmstats.php match.

I am not really seeing anything wrong with the information. Maybe I am not understanding what you think is wrong.

Activity ratio and A:H ratio are two completely different bits of data.

Activity ratio is how many alliance to horde are playing at any given hour. lets say at 8pm 2000 alliance are playing and only 980 horde are playing. So the activity ratio would be 2.0:1 (roughly)

Alliance to Horde ratio is how many alliance characters have been created and seen by the census as opposed to how many Horde characters. If there are 10k alliance on the server and only 7k horde the A:H ratio would be 1.4:1

A server can have 10k alliance and only 7K horde but have an activity ratio of 1:1.9 It doesn't matter how many horde are on there, just matters how many are actually logging on the game.

Was due to a slight difference in the way they were calculated. On the activity page, if one of the hourly entries for either faction was 0, then the other was also tossed out. I've changed it so that they both use the same calculation method to provide consistent results.

Thanks for pointing that out, surprised nobody has done so before!

The ratio shown on the server stats page is the Activity ratio. So yeah, it was a legit question =)

When I looked at those links, everything was fine. Laughing

I manually did the math too. Now I was only a B student in math and all, but I can divide with my calculator. =p

The ratio shown on the serverstats page was 2:1, before I made the calc change, the overall ratio shown on the activity page was 1.7:1. After the update, they both show 2:1 now =)

Darn you Rollie. You must have changed that as I was typing my reply. Thanks for clarifying that. I saw nothing wrong with the info because you had already fixed it. Smile

That's something to add to the FAQ I think - I've been using this site over a year now and never understood the different ratios until reading this! Never seen an explanation of exactly what activity ratio is before - thanks for that, it explained it perfectly Smile

haha thanks. My husband always tells me I have a hard time explaining myself. I think its because I am so distracted when talking rather than when I am typing. Confused

Feel free to fix it up a little and put it in the FAQ.

Alright, everything looks fixed to me!

Thanks for clarifying on the ratios too, I was a little confused about those.
