A new way?

What's really interesting is the Posts-per-day statistic... it can take me up to an hour sometimes to figure out what I want to say and get it all in print (plus bathroom breaks and such ;).  Some people have an average of 25 per day or more, which makes me wonder if it's all posting news articles or short one-line posts or if they just don't sleep or bathe or have a job or if they skip classes or if they have no girlfriend or friends or what?  Or maybe I'm just slow?

It seems that the credits mostly correlate with posts.  I suggest a new formula for calculating credits, although I have no idea how to actually make it happen, programming-wise:

( x - b ) / z + ( y - b ) / ( 2 * z ) + t  * z = c

where x = total # of textlines in posts
b = # of blank textlines or textlines that only occupy half of the line or a quarter of the line or whatever
z = an arbitrary number used to balance the value of writing long messages with the value of provoking popular discussion
y = # of textlines in private messages
t = # of pages filled by virtue of other people's replies in threads that one started.
c = credits

Any web programming wizzes out there capable of making this happen?  I'm a social science major, so there's no way I can do it.

Incidentally, the american stereotype of asian people is that they're all math wizzes... heck, my buddy from Beijing is a computer scientist, but web programming isn't his field.
Of the people, by the people, and for the people.

does it take you a long time to think of such a 'logical and bargaining' post?the programming of the formula must be a ordeal to the programmer
come on,no big deal,it is just credit and post,we are not making a bargaining

Sure, but if we got a dollar for every credit, it would matter.
