We have our thrilling conclusion to last weeks brawl. But sad to say I ran into some problems last week so it's another two pager week. So we'll have to wait till Friday to find out what's coming next.

But it's new month so that means the voting page has changed! I really like this months page so if you want to see it go give a fee vote!

(next update 6-5-20)

Eh, kind of middling between the two possible endings. I think that was a grudging approval from dad. Obviously Tirea is happy, and the fact mom is smiling makes me think it was a rousing success.


On Monday, May 25, I predicted, based on voting patterns, that GRATZ would reach #394 - #397 with between 158-164 votes.

Then I basically challenged all of you to go "NOPE, wrong."

That was deliberate.

For the month of May, GRATZ achieved a ranking of #376, with 173 total votes.

So, what was I looking at back on last Monday, and what happened by yesterday?

When I look at "medians" I'm examining voting patterns over a specific time period. Example:

Between May 1 - May 8; voting averaged 4.5 a day.
Between May 9 - May 15; average of 5.7 daily
Between May 16 - May 22; average of 5.4 daily

So what I was looking for between May 23 and end of month was between 4.8 - 5.5 daily. The low based on the fact the month would end on a weekend, traditionally "low turnout."

What happened instead?

Between May 23 - May 31; average daily...*6.5*.

Had that 6.5 average been maintained the entire month the comic would have grossed 201.5 ish votes. Back on March 29, the comic hit #335 with 201 votes. I was too tired last night to check and see where we could have landed.

This is why I have harped on voting in the past. Every daily vote can make a difference. Let's see if we can beat that 6.5 daily average for the entire month.

First day voting was 17 I think. A small look into into viewer numbers. yesterday's view count was 512.

So if my math is right, (and it hardly is) 3.32% of viewers voted for Gratz. (not discounting anyone who voted multiple times some how.) A issue to consider is I have no idea how this stacks up against the viewer numbers for the top 100 comics. So I can't tell if 3.32% is a strong reader to voter turn out or a low reader to viewer turn out.

But just some more fun numbers to to look at.

Also one more number to announce.

Gratz rating: 1000 scores have been given! 4.98/5.0!

It's 18 this morning, it was 12 when I checked last night, which is the highest first day of the month total since October 1, 2018. That in itself is pretty good.

If 3.32% is strong, then the top of the list has a huge readership, which given the content of the highest is probably true. There are other comics with I know have a very passionate viewer base, always have tons of comments on pages, yet place nowhere near the top 100.

So, passionate engaged readers =/= high placement; but, conversely, with a large reader base the comic doesn't need as heavy a % of engagement to rank.

Hopefully this teaches Dad a lesson, otherwise Cer'veja might have to lay him out next time. What is it with fathers trying to fight suitors? It feels like just a Dad thing, like jokes.
