As y'all know, BYC is the BEST place to hang-out because of our hundreds-of-thousands of amazing members.

Everyone of you help make BYC what it is. Do you post some helpful replies to a question in our forum? Maybe you greet and welcome our new members? Perhaps you created a coop article? There are a TON of factors that go into what makes each member a contributor to our community.

It's impossible to quantify all the various ways a member can be helpful... but that doesn't stop this geek from trying ;)

:D

One of the benefits from paying all the bills to keep BYC running is that I have backend access to all the community data. I've been running really interesting queries on things like # of posts, likes, post-to-like ratios, all-time counts, recent counts, etc. etc. etc.

So.Much.Data.

... my head starts to spin!

:th

For fun, I decided to just do the most simple calculation:

A user's # of posts in the last 90 days + # of likes that user has received in the past 90 days.

NOTE: This does NOT capture the myriad of ways a post, comment, BYC activity, etc. is "better" than anything or anyone else. It just says "hey, this person is pretty active in our community and peeps are really liking what they are posting!"

Want to see the top 50 results? :D

This is very interesting! It's great to see how everyone's making a difference and helping out. :clap So many great people in one place!

However, while it's true as you pointed out "BYC is the BEST place to hang-out because of our hundreds-of-thousands of amazing members," it's not the whole story.

First and foremost, BYC is THE best place to be because you, Rob, set this fantastic, positive tone for the site. (Even this thread puts a huge smile on my face. :D ) With members of all ages and backgrounds, you and the staff maintain the site with such positivity and sense of decorum. This is no simple task. In a world full of negativity...there is no other website that I have come across that has BYC's incredible vibe. BYC is like family. It IS great because you set this tone.

On behalf of all the members on BYC, I'd like to thank you for all you've done and all you continue to do to make this world a better place. You give us a place to connect with friends and meet new people, where we can support each other, where we can share knowledge and ideas and where we can go for some sunshine in this sometimes dark world. Perhaps you may not realize this, but BYC is a lifeline for many of us.

So while you may not be at the top of any particular list, perhaps you should be. ;)
Thank you, Rob! :bow :clap:woot:thumbsup
