Re: Conference of the Monarch (Thoughts)
A conference of monarchs could be useful to OOO but, as Darksand said, should not be the only source of information.

The top 10 monarchs would in no way be considered a random sample of players but they might have sufficient insight and experience in game to help OOO identify issues that warrant a more rigorous investigation amongst the entire player base.

If you're going to use a sample to make inference back to a population, you have to be sure your methodology is sound. I have no preconceived notion of what the "average" pirate actually is but I do know that there are a number of potential biases in your samples which need to be addressed before claiming they are representative of the population.

If a bird looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it's probably a Huntard .
