The idea of PACE was to find a better way to order / sort what is popular using all the data you have to showcase the absolute best work.
Right now anyone with an account which has 1000+ followers almost by default will receive more likes on shots than those with 100 followers.
While this is a fair way of deciding what is popular I still wanted to find a better way of deciding what is popular using more than just the total likes.
This would even the playing field, allowing every shot to be judged by what percentage of people who seen the shot actually liked it.
PACE right now only works out what a single users average views to like ratio is creating a new PACE rating. (Only based off their last 100 shots.)
This is a far stretch from the original goal. PACE as it stands now is just the starting point.
Next is using the PACE rating to order popular shots and perhaps even search results.
PACE makes it easy to see what types of shots are most liked or viewed. Along with this you'll find what day of the week does better.
Using this information you'll have a better understanding of what type of shots to post and when.
With PACE you can also get unqiue insight into other dribbble users. How you choice to use this information is up to you.
Good work will always get noticed so while PACE stats will most likely not directly impact how you interact with dribbble perhaps you'll still find it interesting.

Enjoy working with data and finding new ways to display data.
Dribbble tracks all views, likes and comments per shot. PACE works out what percentage of those views actually liked or left a comment.
Using this information we can give you the average view to like and view to comment ratio. This means if your like ratio is 4% for every 100 views you typically get 4 likes.
While PACE is fairly straight forward there are plans for a larger more dynamic version. For now though this information is still usefull for figuring out what types of shots do the best and which days typically result in a higher score.
