What makes the ideal question? Perhaps it is merely the abstraction of a profound thought and the initialization of a dream, a hope, a thought, a (… 5,024.2 characters omitted). Therefore, I propose that we find such a factor to quantify questions. I propose also that this factor be called QF, or the Q-factor. I determine a question's Q-factor as thus:
(Recall that .)
Objective Given a number as input, determine the respective question's Q-factor on PPCG.SE. If the question does not exist, simply output
;-; (the crying emote).
Take, for example, . (this question):
The net votes, in this case, means .
views = 23435 net votes = 33 edits = 6 answers = 30, answers^2 = 900 comments = 19 charsIOPN = "Joe Z.".length = 6
r_F = 6 / 6 = 1 Q_F = r_F * (23435 * 33 + 6) / (900 - 19) = 1 * 773361 / 881 ~ 877.821793
Please provide at least 2 significant figures on QF.
This is a code-golf, so the shortest program in bytes wins.
Note: Please include three examples of your program running, one of which must be this question. The other two are yours to decide. (This is just a confirmation check.) Also report the time at which you entered the query.
