Looking at the list of top raters for the year, I thought “who has been more consistently performing as top rater in the 19 years of RateBeer?”.

I collected the data of the top 50 raters per year, and assigned a score by position.

The Max 5 formula means that a rater in the top 10 positions got 5 points, 4 points for position 11 to 20 and so on.
The Max 10 formula means that a rater in the top 5 positions got 10 points, 9 points for position 6 to 10 and so on.

The results of Max 5 and Max 10 are very similar; but pushing it further (for example 50 points for the top rater, 49 for the second and so on) would penalize too much who was strong/top rater for many years versus somebody who did a #1 one year and then nothing.

404 raters made it to the Top 50 at least once.
67 raters made it to the Top 50 just once.

These are the raters that entered the RateBeer Top 50 raters of the year more often (listed first 25 positions, plus ties):
