Re: Conference of the Monarch (Thoughts)
Mind, I don't consider either of you no ones. ;-)
I collected data on the average jobber for basic duty puzzle related stats intentionally because I thought it would be a much more useful stat than the average pirate online. I really don't think the average will go up if you include people on islands.
Indeed it is, but I've done surveys in the past expecting one thing and finding another and changed my mind.
I do find it curious that people have jumped in, become very passionate/"pedantic" about sampling bias when the issue of what an average stat is, and yet they haven't raised the issue when deciding if sampling the top 10 monarchs leads to bias. The exception seems to be Darksand.
I just did a quick check of the survey I did today. Out of 395 pirates, 314 have at least one stat that is master or above. I'm not sure if the other 81 count as being "seriously below average", but yeah, they are not average.
edit: d'oh master *or above*
Algol can not assert the truth of all statements in this post and still be consistent.
