Home region raters

A while ago, probably about a year or so ago, I posted a list of the top raters for each region who live in that region. The idea was to see how much coverage in the England who have from regular raters. I have included the month / year that person last rated a beer as well. Obviously this only covers England, but there are already country lists that cover this sort of thing.

Thanks to LazyPyro for posting how to create a table!!

Sweet, another stats thread! This is quite an interesting one actually, quite a lot of counties lacking active raters. Some aren’t much of a surprise (Isle of Wight, Rutland) but some are (Northumberland, Lancashire fairly big counties).
If I counted correctly there are 15 people who are “winning” their home county so there’s a lot of others who need to step up their game.

This reinforces my call to get Bristol as its own county, that would push downender into there so I can win Gloucestershire as we’re the only raters here! :smiley:

Also great job using a table, glad people are taking notice of that sort of stuff. Really helps make these stats threads much easier to process. My only wish is that Discourse would make the columns sortable.

I love new stats and tables, especially when I’m actually in them.

Not really ‘tech savvy’ so have to rely on others to produce these sort of things, please keep them coming.

I used to instigate the old ‘Stat Twat’ threads on the UK Forum (along with a couple of others), but they kind of died a natural death a while back. Might try and resurrect a few in the New Year after our annual rating totals are given us.


I suspect a lot of those were before my time here on RB as I don’t recall them, but as a stats nerd I’d be happy to resurrect some with tables and whatnot, or I can help you with the code for the tables.

Actually, forgot to mention this back when I originally posted that table code info. Discourse were working on a feature where you could copy and paste data from a spreadsheet (MS Excel and Google Docs both supported) directly into a post here on the forums and it would automatically format it with table code. I just tried it and it worked flawlessly so they must have finished developing it. This makes everything so much easier!

So to anyone who will be posting stats threads: just make sure you’re using a spreadsheet to hold the data, then copy and paste it from there to here. Everything will be fine.

Just having a quick glace at some of those old Stat Twat threads, some interesting ones and some quirky ones were on there. If you don’t start any yourself I may steal some in the future (if you don’t mind) :slight_smile:

The task now is just finding ones where I’ll actually appear somewhere in the table.

really interesting stats these Chris, 50 off Glen but he is a regular visitor and a Blue Nose

Feel free to start any thread you like, anyone could instigate a ‘Stat Twat’ if they wished too, it was never patented.

Yes, the art of starting a good stat thread is being in it somewhere, good luck.



I never knew he followed the Blues.


What does Gentle_Ben think ?

Why not send him a beermail and ask him yourself?


Well, Surrey’s no longer up-to-date:)

Your right of course, I have updated the table above (extract below).
