I'll be looking through these as soon as I get a chance, and adding people at will. what an excellent script...

The following people not on the friends list for spoonless are close by:

TrustFlow II: Who is closest to your friends list?

(Only strange thing is, they seem to list the furthest away first. They ought to list the closest first, so those are the ones in front of the cut. PS: Actually, I'm not sure which is which... anyone know for sure? Also, is there a similar script which ranks users based on best interest match?)

It is closest-first. I've seen interests matchers by catamorphism and, um, someone I forget. LJ used to provide that feature built-in.

I'm very confused about some of them that showed up on my list. For some reason, the first 4 entries on my trustlist (300-350) each only have 1 friend in common with me. And the one friend isn't even a friend in common that has many other friends in common with me. That's why I thought it couldn't be most trusted first. But it doesn't make much sense the other way either.

Other thing that's odd is there's at least a couple entries on the list that have zero friends in common with me, and only 1 or two interests in common. I'm beginning to think this trustflow thing isn't all that.

Yeah, could be. Looking at my results the most obvious bias is towards the friends of users with few friends -- which comes directly from the attack resistance. So if you have friends Alice and Bob with few friends, but among them are Carol and Dan also with few friends, and they friend jwz like everyone else on livejournal does, that'd explain it.

The interests just don't enter into it.

Oh, and yeah I used to use that interst-matching feature all the time when they had it. Removing that was the only thing lj's ever done that's ever really pissed me off. Most useful feature they ever had.

Since then, I've found scripts people have for matching a couple interests you select, but nothing to give you ranked users with the most interests in common.

One of the interests things I tried to remember, above: http://ixwin.livejournal.com/101785.html
But it's not what you're asking for. You might email catamorphism about her interests thing -- not sure the latest version was ever made public.

I liked the old interests matcher too. It was pretty much the whole reason I filled out a bunch of interests in my profile, and it was gone soon after. Hmph.

(I don't remember what catamorphism did, exactly. Except it was in Haskell.)

Hey, there are some good people on your TrustFlow list! (you have a lot of my real life friends on yours, which is a little strange being as I don't actually know you)

There was something like this going around somewhat recently that did a match up by unusual interests (so like it would rank users on best interest match but only when X or less people had that interest.) I can look around for it if you want. It did a much better job for me for finding interesting people than a general interest match.

Hmmm, weird. I still can't believe I forgot to look you up at Burning Man last year, it totally slipped my mind in all the chaos. Anyone in particular I should add?
