Oh no, no it's not meaningless. It means exactly what the site owners want it to mean, and that's that. Flags x Stars divided by 200,000.
What it misses is ATS points in the equation. ATS points cover a whole lot of things, from posts, to replies, to applauses to podcasts to special
points awards. It even takes into account warnings and deductions. How they could leave that out of WATS just makes no sense to me.
(Flags x 5) + Stars + ATS Points is my latest proposal for a simple but effective WATS formula. And it would put some long-time contributors back on
the WATS list too, where they should be. Even the mods would be better represented from that. But of course they're getting paid, and are so humble
they don't need any recognition.
