METADREAMER here, you might know me as the designer of the legendary OG $YFI Hoodie. As a certified SourceCred shill, thought it would be interesting to see how well it would work on the YFI forums so I ran it and got these scores:
Here’s the cred instance if you want to explore it directly: http://yfi.sourcecred.io/
TLDR on SourceCred: its a tool to measure the value of contributions in open communities using a modified version of the PageRank to give cred to contributions when they are referenced or depended on by other contributions with cred. More concretely for these forums, users earn cred when they get likes and engagement on their posts. You can read more about how SourceCred works here.
Was curious to get everyone’s thoughts on the rankings and cred scores it assigned and if they are accurate in any way and if there’s value in this data at all. If people generally think the rankings are representative of people who bring value to the community, it might be a cool way to distribute small amounts of funding and reward contributors in a decentralized way.
