    Highest Possible Score: 8112

    FAQ:

    0. How do you get this data?

    This is the collected data of everyone who has posted in this thread. Submissions are sorted from favorite to least favorite. The top favorite is given 1 point, next is given 2, and so on down. Then, I apply a golf-points system: the person with the lowest score is the overall favorite.

    1. What the flying fuck is ADP?

    ADP, or Arbitrary Disapproval Percentage, is that character's percentage of all the votes. Even if a character was everyone's favorite, they would still have ~0.74 ADP, due to the system I'm using. It sure is arbitrary! And what better way to give tiers to silly things such as character popularity than with arbitrary things?

    2. What is this, in all my years, I don't even.

    This is a project to figure out what characters are more popular, and to come to conclusions about what makes characters in Homestuck really stick.

    Thusfar, with some outliers, popularity is almost directly proportional to screen time. This makes sense since everything Andrew touches turns to gold.

    3. Can I contribute?

    Absolutely. For my convenience, please quote ONLY THE FOLLOWING BLOCK of this message for correct spelling, number of trolls, and visual aesthetics.

    • Do not add any text between #STARTBLOCK and #ENDBLOCK. Do not change #STARTBLOCK or #ENDBLOCK. Do not remove #STARTBLOCK or #ENDBLOCK. If you do, I will not count your vote.
    • Do not change the spelling of a name- my program knows who Nepeta is and has not a god damn clue who Nepata is.
    • If you are manually typing numbers in your post, you are doing it wrong. The numbers do not matter at all.
    • Do not manually add colors. They do not matter. Either quote my template or don't use them at all.
    • As of April 22nd, 2011, I am no longer tallying votes that do not follow this template exactly.


    How to check if your post will get counted:


    #STARTBLOCK
    1. John Egbert
    2. Rose Lalonde
    3. Dave Strider
    4. Jade Harley
    5. Aradia Megido
    6. Tavros Nitram
    7. Sollux Captor
    8. Karkat Vantas
    9. Nepeta Leijon
    10. Kanaya Maryam
    11. Terezi Pyrope
    12. Vriska Serket
    13. Equius Zahhak
    14. Gamzee Makara
    15. Eridan Ampora
    16. Feferi Peixes

    #ENDBLOCK

    Pokolo (first reply) got this template right, if you want an easier post to quote.

    4. I hate you and you are dumb. Why is ______ below ______

    Because more people like ______. This is just data. It shouldn't affect your individual opinion. Why don't you help out your favorite character in some sort of convoluted way by posting an entry?

    5. I changed my mind! What do I do?

    If you edit your list and want the updated list to be counted, send me a private message INCLUDING YOUR POST NUMBER. Please don't be a spaz with this and send me PMs every day as your opinions change, though I'm fine with updating once every week or so.

    6. How do you do this?!

    I have a .txt file with everyone's entries, and an executable I run that generates the above data based on that .txt file.

    Source code

    7. What about DAD? WV? Jack?

    Because they don't have (speaking?) roles and thus I don't think they are comparable to the kids/trolls, who do. If someone wants to go and make another poll, GO RIGHT AHEAD. I don't care enough. Oh look, right as I said that it was made. Isn't that wonderful?

    DO NOT DELETE YOUR POSTS IN THIS THREAD. YOUR POST NUMBER IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME.

    My vote:

    I know I'm gonna receive some hate for Gamzee's placement but to be honest, the entire lower half of the list is pretty much in flux more often than not, I don't really dislike any of the characters, just like the ones I do, and are semi-indifferent to the ones I don't, but THEY'RE ALL GOOD!

    There is a large jump between Rose and Vriska, and an even bigger one between Terezi and Nepeta.

    Oh my god where is the Tavros love. /weeps

    Might return to edit this, but at the moment that's the way things are more or less [disclaimer: I don't detest the characters lower to the end, I still like them a lot, I just like them less than I like the others].

    Well I tried my best, but imo save for dave being on top, it's hard to decide.

    I don't really dislike any of the characters, just like the ones I do, and are semi-indifferent to the ones I don't, but THEY'RE ALL GOOD!

    That's his personal list. Calculated using some weird math stuff he probably came up with ON THE SPOT.
    Sigquotes, or, The Metaflare Appreciation Station.
    Vriska died, so I stopped reading homestuck.

    Explanation in monospace:
    Code:
    Tavros = 868 413.052 381 4
    Terezi = 860 325.286 128 8
    ---------------------------
    Differ =   8 087·766 252 6
    Only eight thousand points! How can you even compare that less-than-one-thousandth-of-the-scale!

    TIRES DON EXITS

    ...But seriously,

    #STARTBLOCK

    1. John Egbert
    2. Nepeta Leijon
    3. Karkat Vantas
    4. Tavros Nitram
    5. Terezi Pyrope
    6. Vriska Serket
    7. Jade Harley
    8. Gamzee Makara
    9. Equius Zahhak
    10. Dave Strider
    11. Rose Lalonde
    12. Aradia Megido
    13. Kanaya Maryam
    14. Feferi Peixes
    15. Eridan Ampora
    16. Sollux Captor

    #ENDBLOCK

    This list has partially shifted because as updates accumulate, we gain more understanding of the characters, and more recent events cause some fluctuations. Those in the lower fourth we haven't had very much of; Kanaya's big role thus far is to be dumped by two girls and show ignorance of things, Feferi and Eridan are still not fleshed-out like the others, and Sollux... He's like vanilla ice cream. His 'big moments' are only talked about, never shown in entirety. (Rescuing Feferi, fighting Eridan in a laser-off) There was some discussion a while back on the chat thread about how if you need to use non-canon materials to make a character 'alive,' then that character's really more 2-d. I would have Rose lower were it not for the heartwarming portion a few days back with Jaspersprite and where Rose finally promises to consider playing the game correctly. (Did she ever consider that they were supposed to lose their session because of her attempts to break the game?) Dave would've been higher were it not for him ruining Gamzee's religion, but it raised Gamzee's rating. :/ John is still my favorite because of his awesome shenanigans and how I can relate to him, but Nepeta is nipping at John's heels so close; if this list were a diagram of people's positions in a race, a la Mario Kart, Nepeta's marker would be almost completely obscured by John. Following them is Karkat, Tavros, Terezi, and Vriska. They all have entertaining Pesterlogs, but Vriska and Terezi went down once I learned they were manipul8ing John and Dave in one of their dangerous headgames. Aside from Nepeta, Karkat is the highest because of the memos he writes. And how spectacularly he fails at everything. Next is Jade, the kid we've seen the least of. However, she's gotten more characterization than the bottom fourth I mentioned earlier, and there's a big Bec boost to her approval rating here because guardians/lusii aren't in the list. Already talked about Gamzee, and Equius and Dave are that low because they really grate on me for some reason. Finally, Aradia is under Rose because while she hasn't had much screentime, she definitely has an established backstory that ties together about a third of the trolls and is above that lower fourth because while she would ordinarily be amongst their ranks, she has justification to be such a bland character. (HINT: She's dead. )

    ...And now I know nobody will read my massive wall of text. :/
