How wrong is your check total? (The Ballad of Blueboybob)

#1

Post by Ebbywebby » June 30th, 2020, 8:25 pm

The rankings say I have 5559 official checks, but if I sort my checks by # official lists and note where the zero-list films start, this indicates I actually have just 5545. (When I first noted this problem some weeks ago, the gap was 17 rather than 14.)

Then I curiously did the same for the top 25 users. A few of the names have small discrepancies that could be explained by a short lag between list updates and ranking updates, but otherwise....

RonJensen 14005 top list checks, actually has 13929 (-76)
Sien 13030 top list checks, actually has 12981 (-49)
jlfitz 12161 top list checks, actually has 12114 (-47)
nymets138 11433 top list checks, actually has 11395 (-38)
JF-UK 11110 top list checks, actually has 11059 (-51)
allisoncm 10895 top list checks, actually has 10875 (-20)
Fitz of Fury 10171 top list checks, actually has 10147 (-24)
burneyfan 10026 top list checks, actually has exactly 10000! (-26)
Rich 9580 top list checks, actually has 9559 (-21)
SanderO 9339 top list checks, actually has 9327 (-12)
Spocksbrain 9292 top list checks, actually has 9243 (-49)
Apu 9201 top list checks, actually has 9158 (-43)
blueboybob 9151 top list checks, actually has 9465???? (+314)
Tim2460 9086 top list checks, actually has 9075 (-11)
xianjiro 8948 top list checks, actually has 8931 (-17)
Leopardi 8944 top list checks,, actually has 8913 (-31)
thoughtrepellent 8794 top list checks, actually has 8782 (-12)
jerry warton 8746 top list checks, actually has 8754 (+8)

winds 8596 top list checks, actually has 8600 (+4)

Laydback 8316 top list checks, actually has 8302 (-14)
1SO 8309 top list checks, actually has 8289 (-20)

How far off is your count?

I ran an official 10K in 46:11 back around 2006, but this wins me no bragging rights here. :)

wrt the thread, I don't have an explanation, but I would suggest it's just as possible that the check count is the correct value and there's something going wrong with filter/sort when you sort checks by # official lists.

4625 listed, 4628 sorted. Which could just be the films i watched yesterday/today.

Pretty odd how some folks are off by 20, 30, 50, 300 though? Especially the ones where it shows they have more on the list than they do on the sort; how does that happen.

Uhhhh, sorry? I mean I'm not too worried. I'm only here to find movies I would never have known about otherwise.

What about YOUR total check disparities?

If i sort my checked page by number of lists ....

I'm getting 363 pages of 25 film plus 4 films --> 9079 "official" checks.

My top 25 page counter is @9090.... That counter and the Tim2460 (15,074) on top of the main page are always the most up to date...

They seems to be off by a few days of checking ... let's say 3 or 4 days at my current "working from home" check rate.

That is weird is that the checked page should be up to date as i can see this morning checks ??

Exporting the check csv gives me the exact same 9079 checks ...

My excel file says 8967 but i don't change the Watchlist films to Checked Films Tag regulary.

So .... I guess my 9090 "Top 25" counter isn't calculated by accessing the main site database.

But i see it evolving every morning ? ;)

The delta could be from old official films of new ones... Only the Webmaster can tell ;)

I'm ranked #84 with 6269 official checks, but by sorting them as mentionned above, I have 6281 checked movies on an official list. Thats really strange. Could it be some of the most recent lists don't add up, or something like that ? 12 is not much, but the discrepancy is puzzling...
Like blueboybob, I watch movies, the rankings are just a fun byproduct of indulging in my hobby, so I wouldn't worry too much in any case.

Neither that much of a difference for me: 5325 listed and 5336 sorted.
