Base radius of curses?

As I've understood it, all curses have the same Area of Effect radius. Anyone remember what the current base radius is for curses? I've found this https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/11707/page/226/#p5041495 which says it's 16. Here's the only thread I've found that suggests that it's 22: https://www.reddit.com/r/pathofexile/comments/3z3bmo/mechanics_unit_distance_radius_visualized/ however this is with blasphemy linked. --Illviljan (talk) 17:00, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

Judging by the in-game visuals, base radius without Blapshemy is right around 22. A lvl 1 Blaspehmy has no radius modifier so that makes sense. twitticles (talk) 17:47, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

Curse Effect Formula

Why exactly is the formula presented using sum and product notation instead of as code/psuedo-code? Most people visiting this page will not know how to read that, and if you have to provide links to Wikipedia to explain how to read it, then that's probably not the best format to display it in. Ideally, we want something that, say, the average 12 year old can read and understand, WITHOUT having to visit Wikipedia. Anything more complex than basic order of operations stuff should probably be avoided. Fambida (talk) 12:00, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

You are welcome to develop less complex yet elegant solution. — TheFrz — 13:33, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
Wikis assumes knowledge and links to further reading and explanations all the time to avoid repetition, even the first sentence on the curse page does it. Why is linking to a well maintained external page (that explains something better than we probably could) not ok? --Illviljan (talk) 14:13, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
The problem as I see it is the usage of Σ and Π, while the formula is very simple and the notation equally simple for anyone who has any experience with these, they are scary looking for someone who doesn't and make a simple formula seem not so. I'll expand the section a bit. twitticles (talk) 15:03, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
I don't see any need to reinvent the wheel here. The sum and product notations are universal and allow the formula to be written in a concise way. —Vini (t|c) 15:31, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
