Regarding using number of BGG players instead of ratings. Any statistical research is always based on the study of a very small (less than 1000) group of people, reflecting exactly the audience whose tastes you need to know. Yes, I only process the data of users who are registered on the BGG (that is, not ordinary people from the street, but real game lovers who are interested in board games), and only those who logs their games, in fact the most active users of BGG. It doesn't matter to me who exactly logs their parties (wargamers or deduction games fans), it is important that they are about the same people. As with the definition of TV ratings, when the views of the same families that are counted are measured, I can see how the preferences of this group of players (approximately 20000) change. This group consists of those players who are interested in board games seriously. After all, they do this (log their games) first of all in order to know what they are really playing, and what games can already be (due to lack of demand) to sell. They, as a rule, follow the novelties, buying and trying those games that everyone is talking about. And that's what this group of players plays (and what it stopped playing), I'm just interested. I see the corresponding dynamics (by months, years) of all games.
But the ratings, by contrast, can not show any dynamics. The rating of the game does not tell me whether the votes game received were put because of hype, but in reality game is not so good, and players had already stopped playing it. For example, Agricola ratings given to it fall down over the years - a bunch of other, more interesting games appear, and against them, it already looks outdated. But the old votes put to game even in those times when Agricola had no real competitors, allow her to hold a high position. And, again, in order for a good new game to appear in the top 100, it just needs hype, otherwise it will not be noticed among the thousands of new games that appear every year. But if I'm checking number of BGG players, I see that players play this game, and they play it steadily. That's the difference between my method and usual using of BGG ratings/ranks.
