Score. Score for a Post. How is this calculated?

Just curious what the ‘Score’ attribute on a user post indicates, and/or how it’s calculated. Thanks!

Used in the summarize topic function which appears on topics with more than 50 replies.

As for how it’s calculated, everything is in the ScoreCalculator class :wink:


What cool data explorer queries have you come up with?

Very nice! but can you please provide an example with a basic use case? I don’t understand all the complex math used to calculate the score, and this is something critical for me as I want to use this to classify/rank/grade questions and answers. (unless you already have a system for this in place).

I ask this as I just saw, replied, and liked a topic, and now I have a score of 0.2, which I don’t understand as I though the score for liking weighted 15.

Thanks!
