Thanks to the data that /r/MegaMegaMonitor collates, I’ve been able to throw together some fun statistics about the MegaLounge chain. Let me share some graphs with you:

**Number of accounts at each level**

There are 3,020 accounts authorised to access /r/MegaLounge, 906 in /r/MegaMegaLounge, 487 in /r/MegaMegaMegaLounge, 307 in /r/MegaLoungeIV, and similarly fewer and fewer in each subsequent lounge. There’s a mini “tipping point” after /r/MegaLoungeUK, for some reason – did everybody who got that far just decide to stop?**Gildings per MegaLounge**

As you’d probably expect, the lower (and more-populous) MegaLounges see more gilding than the higher ones. But…**MegaLounge generosity ratio**

…if we take the*ratio*of the number of gildings per MegaLounge to the number of*accounts*in that MegaLounge, we get a ‘generosity score’, and that’s not so clear-cut. The most generous MegaLounges are /r/MegaLoungeSol and the secret MegaLounge, followed by /r/MegaLoungeDiamond, /r/MegaLoungeRussia, /r/MegaLoungeVII, and /r/MegaLoungeVI. I wonder if these are also the lounges with the least content? Perhaps they’re places that people stop off at only as a steping stone on their journey?

The least-generous MegaLounge is the latest one, probably because there’s nowhere to*go*yet as a result of being gilded there, but the second least-generous… is /r/MegaLounge itself! I feel like I should go there and gild some people, just to buck the trend!**Most-gilded Redditors in the MegaLounges**

It’s possible to get from /r/MegaLounge up to /r/MegaLoungeIndia with just 33 gildings, but nine Redditors have impressed others with their MegaContent so much that they’ve attracted significantly more. /u/love_the_heat leads the way with a massive 76 MegaGildings, followed by /u/Gold_4_No_Reason and /u/madazzahatter (there’s quite a gap, then, before I come in at fourth place).

This is all just something fun I threw together while I’ve been off work sick today. If there’s anything else that anybody would like to see extracted from MMM’s data, let me know: it’s all interesting stuff!
