The Erdős number (Hungarian pronunciation: [ˈɛrdøːʃ]) describes the "collaborative distance" between a person and mathematician Paul Erdős, as measured by authorship of mathematical papers.

The Diorno number (Hungarian pronunciation: dumbass) describes the "collaborative distance" between a person and hopper Jack Diorno, as measured by membership of alliance at the same time as Jack.

If you're in the same alliance as Jack, you have a score of 1.

If you're in the alliance that was jack was in last, you have a score of 2.

If you are in an alliance with someone who was in an alliance with Jack, you take their score and add 1. Add another one if that person is no longer in your alliance.

So Wickedj would have a score of 2. And people who were in fark would have a score of 4 (2 for jack +CSN, +1 for being in the alliance with wickedj and +1 for people who were in fark with wickedj).

This thread is dedicated to Sethly and his special brand 'Sparta jokes'. Psch

I haven't yet figured out my score, it's difficult. I'll post when I do
