This talk page is for discussing the RuneScape:Interest - Typical Player/December 2007 page.

This information does not compute. The average player has more than 220 quest points, and yet has only 0-500k gp? The conclusions are clearly based on medians, which are not going to be representative with such a small sample. Whoever has access to all of the data should change this to be based on the mean--or at least make the data publicly accessible so people can draw their own conclusions. 06:22, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Yeah that's what shocked me the most when I read this. But still, I think this is not based on medians or means, but just based on which categories got the most votes. The main problem is that we can't link the votes between 2 questions, eg we can't say what a user who voted A) on question 1) voted on question 2 (in fact we can't even know if he voted at all on question 2). So maybe simply players with low QP didn't want to vote there, etc... there can be so many biases... all this polls mean is that most players who voted here have 220+ QP and that most players who voted here (probably/certainly not the same ones as those who have 220+ QP) have <500k gp.

The results are still available here. I doubt everyone answered truthfully in all of the polls, since there were a bunch of people who said they had 24 skill capes, and there's no way half the people with 2,277 total voted on a site obscure as this. Also, the "results" portion is certainly misleading given the wide spread of answers in all of the polls. Skill 06:44, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
