How many raters does it take to make a million (part 4)

Oh hey I did a thing a long time ago! Where was my @??

With my current backlog I should be able to jump back into the top 2mil!

@MiP played the role of ticky backstop for all of 79 days, but is now kaput.

Most sluggish transition ever.


Glad to have helped.

Woohoo, I’m still in the top 2mil.

Maybe the AB announcement is slowing down rating?

I never get a mention on these threads, just manage to miss out every time you do it. Being in the 156/166 position means it’ll be a while before I even make it into the second million group.

About 3 people drop out of the 2m band for each loss in the 1m bad, so there’s a lot of skipping. (And there’s a fight right now for that top band - @Desverger poked his nose in a few days ago, but @imdownthepub has bravely fought back.)


And we’ve lost @Desverger, so are down to only 40!

The 3-for-1 in the top two bands is still being maintained. The band took an even more sluggish 85 days, which is more than the naive 79*(42/41) you’d extrapolate from the last band’s time.

Sorry team! - but the backlog is building up and was inevitable, just too many festivals in May so wont get better, but glad to have helped out for a while :smiley:


86 days later, @bhensonb, after staying unchallenged in the 40th place the whole time, finally becomes redundant:

It’s a sign - everyone needs to get down the pub! (Well, it is friday, it would be rude not to.)

(@services: why was @Towey1989 not recognised?)


@FatPhil, @Towey wasn’t highlighted because he hasn’t joined this side of the site and therefore doesn’t post or read the threads (like 99% of users).

I don’t recall joining the forum separately as well. I thought there was only one user/pw combination for both sites.

I think this is true, as the forums can be directly accessed from the “original” servers.

Looks like that took 96 days


Finally out of the top 100 it seems

Since Phil himself can’t post it:

I thought @FatPhil had been given free ‘Premium’ for his efforts with stats on this site?


I think it is more a technical problem, since Phil uses some really old school browser or something. He can still read the forums tho.

does anyone know simelar for untappd

though its really only a measure of big users

AFAIK no such statistic at Untappd.

We’ve pulled out top raters for Croatia so comparison can be made with RB numbers.
