Suspicious mind that I have, I wonder about how "fair" route membership is. It's my hypothesis that route visiting rates decrease exponentially the further from the head of the route you are. (It's my untested suspicion, also, that the visit rate of a route increases somewhat with it's length.)
If I'm right, Route members closer to the head benefit much more than Route members closer to the end (and also: Route members closer to the head benefit more the more members there are in the Route). In other words, the head of a Route benefits unfairly from the membership of the tail of the Route.
Am I right? I don't know. But there's a way to find out: if you're a member of a Route, on the next new day, go talk to your Rock and determine how much iMG you've gotten from activity on your Street. Post the following information:
What Routes you're on.
Your position on the Route.
The iMG you just received.
Optionally: Rock iMG samples over the course of a few days.
Optionally: the length of the Routes you're on.
