I want to see what site has on average the most upvotes on posts.

This would be:

(Number of total upvotes - downvotes / Number of posts)

  • 1
    Why are you following this order? Why not just upvotes/number of posts? This is the equivalent of (total votes - downvotes)/posts. Subtracting downvotes after dividing is confusing.

  • @Catija true, is there anyway to access such a report

  • SEDE should have most of the votes, if you know SQL. data.stackexchange.com

According to this SEDE query, the top two sites are two metas with a 'score' of about 9.4; TeX - LaTeX Meta and Meta Stack Overflow. Retrocomputing and Interpersonal Skills are the top main sites with scores of almost 9.

  • This doesn't include deleted posts. Skeptics has pretty high standards for both questions and answers, so what doesn't meet the standard is usually deleted. (Like I said the last time this came up—but since then I earned the 10k privilege and I can personally confirm that there are like 6 deleted posts on many of the old questions that accrued over the years.)

  • Some of the sites are also very famous on HNQ (e.g. Skeptics, ex-IPS, TWP, Scifi, Academia)... wonder what the result will be if upvotes on HNQ can be ignored... (but that's theoretically impossible since there's no indicator for HNQ on SEDE) Feb 10, 2019 at 1:22
  • @Laurel you're right, thank you, and votes on deleted posts were counted. I've updated the query and the results are indeed different now.
