    Look out dools and BYH .... :D

    (Warning: The following is the product of extreme boredom and a well-deserved break from intoxicants.)

    I was curious about what the new year would hold among the top posters on the board. What I learned is it’s damned hard to rise in the rankings unless you churn out Good Doctor-like volume.

    Billboard style ....

    Projecting what the post standings will look like on Jan. 1, 2008, using the average posts per day extrapolated out over the course of a 365-day year (and using the total posts as of 11:59:32 p.m. CST on Dec. 31, 2006 as my starting point):

    Note: Posters with superlatives are in red and those with bullets are in purple.

    Didn't carrie average 20 posts a day when she first logged on here? I swore she would have hit 10,000 by now.

    I think Flash and spup stole her mojo. :)

    I don't understand the purple. I'm sure it's the blonde stupidity in me, but can you explain?

    I had 70-80 posts alone on New Year's Day, so I started off strong. But it's a marathon, not a sprint. I'll have to pace myself -- and possibly schedule some extra vacation time.

    It signifies posters who are projected to make significant gains in the overall rankings. As for the color selection, I just like purple because it's different. Maybe I'll use teal or lime green next time.

    No, that's cool. I just didn't get it. Like I said.. spup=blonde stupidity sometimes.

    I've got work to do this weekend, so I didn't want to log on and further distract myself...but I had to complement Football_Bat. This was HILARIOUS. Well done!

    That is probably the coolest thing I've ever seen on here. When I was younger I was a huge Billboard and AT40 nut, so I'm tres gratified to see that a) I'm in the Top 40 and b) I've got a bullet on the chart.

    And now we're up to our Long Distance Dedication, about a little dog named Snuggles....
