Right about proportionality. The number of articles a member claps for is key too.

The term I use is clap weight. If I clap once for just your article then I’ve directed 100% of my clap weight to you. If I clap 50 times for your article and then 50 times each for 99 more articles then I’ve only given you 1% of my clap weight.
