Forum Wrapped showed you what you upvoted and strong-upvoted in 2022. We also gave you the chance to mark some posts as “most valuable.”
I’m sharing which posts were marked as “most valuable” by most people, and which posts were most underrated by their karma score (relative to the number of “most valuable” votes).
Please note that this is a very rough list; relatively few people marked posts as "most valuable," and I imagine that those who did, didn't do it very carefully or comprehensively. And there are various biases in the data (like the fact that we showed the list in order of karma).
Before you continue, consider looking back (if you haven’t done that yet).
(You can still mark posts as “most valuable” — we might revisit these numbers later, and you might find it useful to have a record of this for yourself.)
If you want to explore more content, you could look at What are the most underrated posts & comments of 2022, according to you? (thread), my comment on the Forum Wrapped announcement, curated posts from 2022, and older content like the Results from the First Decade Review and the Forum Digest Classics.
Which posts from 2022 did Forum users think were most valuable?
(Note that we ordered posts in "wrapped" by karma score, meaning higher-karma posts might be artificially over-rated.)
Which were most underrated by Forum karma?
A quick note on the methodology is in the footnote.
Thanks so much...
...for posting, commenting, upvoting, marking as “most valuable,” giving us feedback, and more! I really appreciate it.
I looked at the number of people who had marked something as “most valuable,” and then divided by [karma score]^1.5. All of these were marked as most valuable by at least two people.
Just dividing by karma didn’t change the list much, and dividing by karma^2 penalized karma too much. I played with a few other ways of modifying the “underrated-ness” metric, but they didn’t seem better.
