Motivation to Ctam, a guide:

000010: very high
000100: medium
001000: low
010000: very low
100000: abysmal

999900: very high
999990: too high
999999: abysmal

...wtf that scale is no sense.
also only binary allowed!

no that scale is what number we're at in ctam

wat

Yes, so when we reach 10000 our motivation to ctam will be at an all time low.

xkcd ctamstat

let's talk about the stranger sides of ctam statistics
here is ctam population
(http://tinyurl.com/637594706110)
how does it work? no one knows
here is ctam value
(http://tinyurl.com/521812444188)
it is based off of ctam halflife and ctam post count
now how about ctam life?
(http://tinyurl.com/656040969249)
and today, we introduce the ctamcoin, whose value is computed with black magic and a combination of the three previous statistics
here is the value of ctam coin
(http://tinyurl.com/913615182197)
on second thought, maybe we need a log plot
(http://tinyurl.com/996102780996)
now that's more like it. remember to buy high and sell low!

the abstraction from the post count is increasing at just the right pace

INTRODUCING CTAM ECOLOGY SIMULATOR, WHICH MODELS PREDATOR (RED) AND PREY (GREEN) POPULATIONS.
it takes into account prey being eaten, predators starving, reproduction of both species, AND conservation efforts (min population is capped at 10).
Now you ask, what the hell does this have to do with CTAM?? Well, your ctam posts directly add to the population of one of the species depending on whether the day is odd or even! just think about it  you're powering an entire ecosystem!!

i started laughing in the middle of class and everyone looked at me funny

don't get your iplam banned again

I would like to buy ctam coins how do I do that

Ctam ecology... lmao

ctam coins actually shoot up in price when ctam population reaches zero

yes because magic

let's take a look at darvince's ctam nino
(http://tinyurl.com/866809500587)
i like it, but let's take it up a notch to ctam sins (not ctamming is a sin, or posting a wrong number is a sin)
(http://tinyurl.com/30845121034)
i like this too but let's go all out and plot some ctam reality
(http://tinyurl.com/884068768670)
but wait, you say, that graph looks like random noise.
let me tell you that it's not
in fact, let us define ctam arousal as a linear combination of ctam magnitude, ctam life, ctam worth per day, ctam halflife, ctam population, ctam value, ctamcoin, ctam nino, ctam sins, ctam predator, and ctam prey with carefully balanced coefficients. now take the symmetric log of a moving average of the tangent of ctam arousal to get ctam reality
ezpz

But what about factors like ctam traffic, ctam exercise, ctam combustion efficiency, ctam diplomacy, ctam pressure, ctam ticket number, ctam ingredients, ctam temperature, ctam tyre wear, ctam monsters and the ctam evaporation rate?
wow ctam is almost approaching the point where it's meaningful to me to participate in now

we are currently in a moderate ctam el niņo which will inkrease and turn into a strong niņo if we post more >:D
someone should scrape the ctam topic so we can find out all the true times when ctamming happened

ctam turnip production with prediction

i don't even need to quote the funny bit from that post

i mark out some challenging turnip trends

yesterday the ctam turnip farm planted an average of 2.5 turnips per field. Harvests are projected to increase, probably.

now introducing ctam niveau, which is currently around 2.2
(https://i.gyazo.com/bcb68a1f0b75064cc28085e4049c6ae5.png)
and ctam power which just saw the largest peak in history
(https://i.gyazo.com/a9b84c36df62e763d6695996017be3ed.png)
of course, you can calculate ctam energy from this but that's pretty easy so i've not added it to the spreadsheet
also someone should make a chart of ctam dependencies between each type of statistic

nue added a home sheet to show the latest day for every statistic

yup have fun guys i made a sheet which allows you to monitor the vital signs of ctam on a day to day basis
(https://gyazo.com/ea09ac0b48e22b30647072e5776f06c8.png)
quick note though, the date is just yesterday, assuming that the values will be valid for that day at all times... which is probably not right, so don't freak out if the values don't match the day, just go by the current number

someone should scrape the ctam topic so we can find out all the true times when ctamming happened

the state of CTAM ENSO is weak cool neutral anomalies

Introducing CTAM Agriculture
CTAM Agriculture is a new and innovative way to keep track of the amount of crops produced in CTAMtopia. It takes many factors into account, such as CTAM population, CTAM coin, CTAM Arousal and CTAM Niveau.
The governing factor for crop output is the season. The average temperature in celsius is defined by the sine wave 50sin(0.1x) + 10, meaning that winters in CTAM Agriculture can be very harsh, with temperatures dropping as low as 40C. The number of crops in the field defined as the derivative of the temperature function plus a constant, timed a multiplier; n(5cos(0.1x) + 5), where n is the willingness of CTAM citizens to plant and harvest crops.
The willingness of CTAM citizens to harvest CTAM crops is defined as the inverse of the acceleration of the plant growth on CTAM farm (as when they see a field without crops they get scared of starving, and are motivated to plant more crops), times their arousal (as when they are turned on they get motivated to plant crops), divided by their niveau (as immature farmers will decide to shitpost and fool around rather than plant crops like they're supposed to be, decreasing efficiency), multiplied by the square root of ctam population (as not many people will want to be farmers); (1/0.5sin(0.1x))*a*(p^(1/2))/i
I haven't learned how to calculate how many crops are harvested, yet. Stay tuned for that in a future update ayy lmao.
oh wait oh no i don't have edit access oh well i'll just implement it later

1 statistic
2 statistics
3 statistics
4 statistics

oh no not another shitstatistic

make a ctam motivation statistic

kol

Interesting factoid: The percent of CTAM posts that occurred in 2012 only dropped below 50% this month when Fiah and I ctammed.
As of June 12, 2016:
Number of posts in 2012:
7954 (51.2%)
Number of posts in 2011, 20132016:
7582 (48.8%)

someone should scrape the ctam topic forum so we can find out all the true times when ctamming happened still look at the forum when it's taken down in like 3 months

i assign shimao to the task
