More on bin sizes and what is a "good" Certification Level
In an earlier post about bin sizes we gave some explanation about how our system works in terms of relative value of a particular score (always keeping in mind that this is the 1.0 version of the site and updates to the algorithms are always "just around the corner").
Suffice it to say: if you got a 5 or above you should feel really proud because you're among the best contributors to the project. And of course, as always, if you got a 1 you should be exited about that to (and hopefully excited to improve your score). We consider everyone with an account to be a Rock Star ;)
Today we're happy to share some more insight.
Count of Rockers by Certification Level
And now, a table of the rockers by their certification level.
You can see now when we say that "a 5 is a good score" we really mean it. It means that if you're a 5 or above then you're in the top 8% of the users in the system. Given that we prepopulated the system with 6136 users who were likely to be high score, being a 5 or above means you are well above the 92nd percentile of all drupal.org users.
