Voting Progress

I’ve been tracking the daily progress of voting for this Ludum Dare to help answer some questions about why the judging lasts for three weeks.

In today’s snapshot,  64.5% of games has reached LD33’s milestone of 17 ratings (it may be higher or lower this time, more is better obviously!) Headline: There’s been over 75 thousand votes/ratings cast so far!

As expected, the rating happening right now is only a tiny fraction of the peak right at the beginning. Here’s two graphs! GRAPHS!

One shows the number of games being rated each day, and the other shows how many games had reached 17 ratings on each day.

GRAPHS = SCIENCE

GRAPHS = SCIENCE

I’m finding this pretty fascinating and curious about which way the trends go. Far too early to draw any conclusions about what % of games will eventually get a rating, but here’s one thing that the data shows to be an absolute fact:

Every dev that’s rated 25 games has enough ratings on their own game! The system works!

    So that first bar is Monday after the jam?

    The first bar is basically ‘before’, probably doesn’t need to be on the Graph tbh, but yes, it represents what I know about that first Monday before the Jam closed.

    I took the first snapshot on the Tuesday once all the jam and competition entries had been submitted. :)
