We often think of communities as organic creatures, which come into existence and grow on their own. However, the truth is they are fragile blossoms.
Conversely, if it's too large you can end up with a community that's too noisy, too cliquey, or otherwise problematic. These optimal and sub-optimal community sizes appear in strata, like discrete layers of rock. For a community to advance from one strata to the next often takes immense energy. In this first article I'm going to talk about numerical group thresholds that have been observed in various sizes of tightly-knit communities, while in its sequel I'm going to talk about personal thresholds and how they relate to group thresholds.
In my final post, I'm going to consider how power laws and inequalities of participation further complicate these simple values in the creation of larger communities. However what I'm going to write about here are the threshold values: the ideal numbers where a community seems to function best, and the less than ideal numbers at which a community begins to grow unstable, remaining so until a new threshold number is reached.
Clearly Ford Motor Company, with , employees, doesn't match any of these group thresholds. Groups below this size can function effectively, but risk not having. At this size members find it easy to get to know the other members of the group, and they're able to function well together in a very intuitive and organic fashion.
An interesting example of this group size is the modern infantry. Each fire team is is large enough to. It is one of the points where groups can change behavior and risk becoming dysfunctional. There's one of these nadirs beyond every group threshold, where the previously harmonious group dynamics become more difficult.
I've chosen to highlight this specific number because it's a point that small communities often hit, particularly as entrepreneurial organizations try to grow above their startup beginnings. The exact number occurs somewhere between 9 and 25, but I suspect it is worst in the range of Studies show that at this size participants underestimate the amount of time they contributed to the conversation, and thus will come out feeling like they were unfairly ignored despite having a fair share of the conversation.
Groups of this size risk people being lumped into categories and ceasing to be trusted as individuals. Furthermore, multiple leaders may struggle for hierarchical status, increasing the conflict in an already troublesome group. This could be because participants unhappy with the group dynamics abandon it; or it could occur in a more organized way with the unwieldy large group breaking into two or more smaller groups. For example, a terrible group of 13 could become two more functional groups of 6 and 7.
This could be in the form of more formal organization, rewards for participation, or more time to be casual and socialize in order to shake off the tensions of this size group. Though these efforts don't usually change the size of the group, they can improve its dynamics. Though this could occur naturally — for example if the group focuses on a topic of particular interest that causes new people to continually be added. In addition, in order to grow a group to a new threshold it often requires the efforts of more than one leader to succeed.
It is interesting that most juries are made up of groups this size. I believe that the social dynamics of this size of group with all new members creates some tension among the jurors, which may serve justice to make sure that all sides are considered by the jury without falling into groupthink.
However, from my experience, the interpersonal conflict in a jury can also slow down the deliberation process and cause much frustration among the participants. For instance, based on graphs of the guild sizes in Ultima Online, groups have a median of 61 members.
However, at this size it applies to mostly non-exclusive groupings, which includes the above mentioned online guilds, many employee communities, and the majority of social gatherings that manage to rise above the size of a Working Group. I've also seen this with more ephemeral groups, such as when a small conference that worked well at 60 participants tries to grow and finds at at participants they can't sustain a high enough intimacy level.
However, as the years went by, centuries tended to decrease in numbers to only include 70 or 80 soldiers. This might well be due to Non-Exclusive Dunbar constraints: even in a very devoted group of military men, there was still the need for relationships with other century groups, with support staff, and with camp followers, ultimately lowering the attention that could be spent on the century itself.
You see this in. Apple did this during the invention of the Macintosh, the first OS X operating system, and the iPhone, but the intensity required of such large teams is not sustainable for long periods of time. Beyond this limit, communities are less cohesive, less trusted, and less participatory and the topic of my third article in this series. As I've discussed here, the number of members can have a huge impact on whether the communities are successful or not.
Thus, as community organizers, social software engineers, game designers, or as sociologists interested in community dynamics, we must ultimately consider group thresholds and group nadirs; to understand how to create cohesive communities, rather than groups that fly apart. I have tried most of the PDA and cellphone browsers to date, and none offer more then a poor cousin to the web that we experience on the desktop.
There a number of announcements about the iPhone were released, and a number of technical sessions on the iPhone and iPhone-related technologies were held. Together the iPhone demonstrations at the public keynote and other demonstrations throughout the WWDC offered some real promise for when the phone is released on June 29th.
This came as a big disappointment to the majority of developers participating at WWDC. This means that web 2. This was terribly broken in Safari 2. It is not clear if this will be supported on the iPhone, but there are ways to work around it.
I am not sure that many iPhone users need SynchroEdit, but as an example of a very sophisticated web technology that should work on that platform, it shows the potential for what might be possible. It should be a great resource for everyone interested in getting in on the ground floor with this new web technology. Most rating scales are 5-point ranges, so we suggested a point range instead.
Thus we believed that providing explicit statements of what each number meant could improve ratings. We've applied all of the above theories and thus far it looks like they're not only working, but that they're actually providing better rating systems than previous ones we've used at the RPGnet site.
We've also run into some unexpected troubles along the way, and we'll talk about that too. We purchased it in from the original owners. One of the benefits of RPGnet was that it had a very large community. As of today it sports one of the top forums on the Internet, with over simultaneous users regularly logging in. However, because of its maturity, we also inherited many existing systems. The large community size of RPGnet applies to the Reviews System as well: currently it features 8, published reviews.
We have a theoretical scale of , but that's based upon a Style rating of and a Substance rating of On the whole this scale isn't as a bad as a singular 5-point scale, but it also isn't a real point scale, and the two orthogonal types of comparison don't necessarily provide a coherent description of a product.
The descriptions could be better, but hopefully they connect to some users in meaningful ways, and help them to rate consistently. These values are used entirely unfiltered. It doesn't supersede our Reviews, but instead offers a complementary look at the roleplaying field.
The Index is essentially an RPG industry database. It contains individual entries for many different gamebooks—currently —and allows registered users to rate each of them. Those ratings are then turned into averages by various mathematical formulas on a nightly basis and the roleplaying games in our index are then ranked. Our average rating is 6. Ratings above 7. But as we noted in our first article, people like to be nice, and thus they tend to rate on the good side of a scale.
Changing the label for our definition of average from 6 to 5 has slowly started dropping the average of all ratings down as a result providing more breadth, a topic we'll talk about more shortly. The 2 was much more specific than any of our other terms and the 9 created a comparative query that was very different from anything else. Overall our ratings conformed to a bell curve centered between 6 and 7, but we saw very clear dropouts in our curve at 2 and 9, telling us that we'd made mistakes in those terms, and that people were less willing to use them as a result.
Since we've made the change to our current set of titles those two discontinuities have disappeared. The idea behind a bayesian average is that you normalize ratings by pushing them toward the average rating for your site, and you do that more for items with fewer ratings than those with more ratings.
However, you use a bayesian average with a weight of , and thus 3 ratings won't move the movie very far from the average site rating of 6. Since then we've accrued over 10, ratings in the database, and we can probably start thinking about cranking that weight up, another topic we'll return to. Though bayesian weights have been used before, we're not aware of other systems that weight ratings based on trust.
Additionally, we believed that ratings with comments were more likely to be thoughtful than those without. Some of these ideas were laid out from the start, and others have been tuned as we progressed. For the purposes of a point scale from , that's a desired value of 5. The veracity of this will ultimately be played out as the Index grows.
The improved quality of ratings with comments is less definitive. Among the vast mass of users the two values are pretty close, and sometimes the reverse of what we expect, but for the best and the worst users, ratings with comments seem to be better than those without.
This latter point is another one that we'll have to continue to monitor as the Index grows beyond its current total of 10, ratings. However, most roleplayers would tell you that the unweighted Reviews and Index lists are terrible.
The top 5 items in the Reviews list actually aren't bad for a starting list of good games—but only because we did the aforementioned statistical ordering. Before that we just had a random listing of gaming items. Of our unweighted top Reviews only the top three had more than 2 reviews and the rest had 2. Not surprisingly those top three were the best fits to a typical top-ten list. Of the unweighted Index only the top three had more than 1 rating, and the rest had 1. Our single good pick was in those top three.
As we pass 10, ratings we're considering upping the bayesian value to We expect that will be our ultimate value when the Index is fully mature, however if we increase the weight too far an older, less rated game will never be able to get enough weight to get out of the doldrums. Though we've pleased and impressed with the growth of the RPGnet Index thus far, by next year we hope that the Index will include the vast majority of all games in print as opposed to somewhat less than half now and that our 10, ratings will grow to 50, or more.

Токуген Нуматака воплощал старую Японию, его девиз - Лучше смерть, чем бесчестье. Он ненавидел американцев. Ненавидел американскую еду, американские нравы, но более всего ему было ненавистно то, что американцы железной хваткой держали мировой рынок компьютерных программ. У Стратмора был смелый план - создать всемирный стандарт шифрования с черным ходом для Агентства национальной безопасности. Он страстно желал разделить эту мечту со Сьюзан, осуществить ее с ней вместе, но знал, что это невозможно. Хотя смерть Энсея Танкадо спасет в будущем тысячи жизней, Сьюзан никогда не примет ничего подобного: она убежденная пацифистка. Я тоже пацифист, - подумал Стратмор, - я просто не могу позволить себе роскошь вести себя как пацифист.
Сьюзан. - Голос его прозвучал резко, но спокойно.
И лучшие в мире специалисты-криптографы этого не поняли, прошли мимо, на что он и рассчитывал. - Танкадо посмеялся над нами, - сказал Стратмор. - Вы должны отключить ТРАНСТЕКСТ, - напомнила Сьюзан.
