Thanks everyone for the help! Since my last proposal seems to have some consensus, I’m going with it. I have created a tidybayes issue here to continue this on my end.
Relatedly, I am curious what people would ideally name a function that outputs draws from
posterior_linpred(). Currently tidybayes has these functions:
However, I don’t like the “fitted” terminology, and would rather not continue mis-using the word “samples”, so I was thinking of changing these as follows:
BUT the “linpred” name is a little odd itself (it is not always linear, and as Michael points out these are pushforward realizations, not predictions per se). So maybe this instead:
Or something else entirely. Any thoughts?
