Curious about how the Astrobin Index I see next to my username is calculated and what's a high/median/low rating. In short, what does it mean?|
Rgds and Happy New Year to All,

How is the AstroBin index calculated?

This doesn't really answer the question. Can I ask what the function is and how it pertains to the two values given as the index?|

Maybe I am too blind and maybe I am missing something…. I only can see my own index not the index of other users? It would be nice to see indexes of others and/or search or filter for users with high indexes to have a look at their great images.|

the AstroBin index was first devised as an anti-spam and anti-cheat measure. As of today, all images of users with an index < 1.00 go thru a moderation queue and I personally delete about 10-50 spam images every day. Same goes for forum posts.
Eventually, people because very passionate about it so it also became a measure of popularity, and it gets used to determine trending astrophotographers (see the Explore menu).
I do not intend to publish other people's indexes except the top100 because frankly it gets taken too competitively already, and I don't want to make it even more so.

Salvatore IoveneSalvatore, thank you for the clear statement that I very much appreciate now that I understand what's behind it.
