    How to work out your reaction ratio

    So the new tags that automatically get dished out by the forum work on a ratio of your posts versus the likes those posts have received. So here's my profile: As you can see I have 23,000 posts and just under 5,000 'reaction score' (basically, likes). So my score isn't even 1:1. Or even 2:1...
