The MSUI has done even more intensive research into this case and is coming to the same conclusion... a large news report should be coming out in about 15 hrs (much depends on this report) but preliminary data and a court testimony from Dr. Pamela Pausch (who is actually a citizen of Mount Seymour) have revealed a stunning new perspective, and flipped this case totally around...

Mount Seymour News Agency writers are currently working around the clock in conjunction with MSUI to prepare this report for the Forest News Leaf by tomorrow.

Okay I have a proposal for Forest's own patented overall greeness score (TM). The score is based on your raw score for 6 categories: environmental beauty, weather, tourism, lifespan, ecofriendliness, and public transportation. It takes your raw score and divides by a score that is around the current best score for that category. It's not too important that it is the actual best score, it's basically just a ratio to try to get each of the raw scores in about the same number space (so an average life span of 90 years can be compared with 2,200 pounds of wildlife per acre). So the numbers on the inside of the parenthesis of the equation that follows are the approximate 'best score' for that category. On the outside of each score is a relative weight. What good numbers for the relative weight this is completely up for debate by folks. I weighed environmental beauty much higher than others because I think that's most of what were trying to measure. I realize EB and several other categories have a causation link but still I think it's a large part of the thing we are trying to measure. So here it is:

Overall Greeness = (Environmental beauty /22,500) *.75 + (Weather / 4,200) * .25 + (Tourism / 10,000) * .25 + (Eco-friendliness / 60,000) * .2 + square_root(life span / 105)*.1 + (public transportation / 28,000) * .05

So Doxovia, others who are interested in this what do you think? Do you like the raw score weighted by a rough maximum method? Do you think the weights I assigned to different categories are appropriate?

Sorry that square root should be squared. The purpose of the squared is to heighten the difference between various nations when life span is generally pretty clustered.

(Wow, those Chan Islanders have long names!)


Yeah, what can we say? At least the pirate captain, we can confirm, was called "Wu", and he's made it ashore at home.

Well, at least some of our pirates have made it home, along with a handful of the crew. For now they have refused to speak to the media, but that hasn't stopped the cameras from besieging a fortified compound on the island's west coast where they have been staying.

This is not a dream. But something far, far weirder. Chan Island has put it's best scientists to work finding the answer.

With Bruination not having logged in for the last 19 days aswell I hope this isn't a bad sign.

Given that it appears that this will put me in first place (assuming I'm calculating it right), I can live with these weightings. :)
