I love the stats currently used to rank the sites. But as the network grows I wonder if some additional metrics might be employed.

  1. Total Reputation - the cumulative reputation by all users of a specific site.
  2. Gross Site Product (GSP) - The amount of reputation created in a set period of time; day, week, month, etc.

Over time these metrics would show how a site is growing or contracting. In essence how healthy it is.

Unit of Reputation, It might be necessary — as we will be talking about large amounts of rep — to invent a unit. I suggest the Skeet (Sk); 1Sk = 250,000 rep.
