Enjoy.

Yeah, remove games and misc and the list would look a bit different... though the list still very much reflects very active (or formerly very active) DDO members either way.

Apparently I stand corrected. This fact weirds me out immensely. Also a little sad I'm not on my other account so I can receive notoriety for ma post count :(

If we combined all accounts of a single person you'd certainly be very high on the list... I think Badger might be the all-time leader though.

It'd be at around 14,000 lel. And yeah I checked to see Badger's current account already has a higher post count then mine. I think Inferno could give him a run for his money though.

Yeah, agreed. I think it's easier then to just include active accounts.

Sounds interesting. Though in all honesty it sounds like it'd just be a covert popularity contest. Sure the 'greats' are generally uncontroversial but the nitty gritty would seem to get sticky.

That's the thing about evaluating intellectual "weight class" (I hate to use wrestling analogies in this context), in that there aren't a lot of people who could do the evaluating and so therefore if "the heard" were to judge then it most likely would become a popularity contest.

Sure the 'greats' are generally uncontroversial but the nitty gritty would seem to get sticky.

I know how I'd rank people, though. For me, that's enough. I guess I'm more pretentious than most, though. haha
