Top Commenters @ Docudharma

( – promoted by buhdydharma )

h/t ek hornbeck for the numerical inspiration

Below are the members of the Docudharma 1000+ Comments club.   What a fine group it is!  Like a council of elders.   There were a few surprises in here. One of which is ME (the lurker) showing up in the list.   I also thought buhdy would be the comment king, but he took 2nd in # of comments and 3rd in the Avg. comments category.  kj, who joined in November, way later than most everyone else, made the top 5 and was 2nd in terms of Avg. Comm/Day.  Five of the top 20 joined on our Launch date – 9/12/07.  That will be a special blogiversary!  I’m not surprised to see the Wise Women of DD: pf8, RiaD, kj, NPK, 73rd v, ucc, Robyn, NL, Shaharazade, Alma, tahoebasha3, and KrisC.  Beautiful Sisters all!

I’ve learned (and laughed) a lot from everyone on the list. Thanks & Congrats!

UDPATE:  And if you’re not on the list, I don’t want anyone to feel left out here.  All participants are valued on this blog. (including lurkers!)

How do I find my comments, UID# and Join date?

Join date is on your profile page.  The date your account was created.  

UID# is also on your profile page aka PersonId. Or scroll your mouse over anyone’s username and look in the lower left corner of your browser window.    The URL will show the PersonID#.

To find your # of comments:

1.  Go to your profile page.  

2.  Click the Comments tab.

3. Click the “Next >>” Link at the bottom of the list.  Continue clicking Next until you get to the end.  If you have a lot of comments go to step 4 for a faster way to get through the list.

4.  Look at the URL in your browser address field.

See that last part at the end? nextId=1

Change the 1 to 10 and hit enter to go to that URL.

This will take you to the page with comments 201-220.  If you have made fewer than 200 comments, this page will be blank.  Click the Previous link until you get back to your first comment.  

If you have made more than 200 comments, keep changing the nextId in increments of 10.  You will know  you are getting close to the end when the comment dates get closer to your join date.  If you overshoot pick a lower number.  A few iterations should get you to the final page.  

nextID 	Comment#
5	101
10	201
20	401
25	501
30	601
40	801
50	1001
100	2001

Is the Pony/Pie/Hide rating system too cutsie?

  1. Just don’t ask me to count all the ponies on those comments!  That’s A LOT of PONIES!

  2. That’s my, um, “collective” number of comments.

  3. Well, I’ll just have to seek entirely new levels of obnoxiousness then.

  4. the magical 1000 #  ðŸ™  How unfair is that?!  Oh, wait..

    this makes #992 so only 8 more  ðŸ˜‰

    what do the  ***   mean?

    those cats are ranker than I, that’s for sure.

  5. And naturally everything I say is meaningful…..

    Oh and look who beat the boss! Ha Ha. My girl…. P…. Not surprised.

  6. by the next count

    • kj on March 31, 2008 at 12:25 am

    i am so embarrassed.  i talk waaaay too much!   =:-)

  7. I see Buhdy is UID 3 and you are 4. Who are 1 and 2?

  8. another one I missed. I have to run but I’ll add her when I get back.

  9. Watching Kansas and Davidson.

    I think it is so cool that Davidson is even a Division I school in any sport. Small liberal arts college that has recently eliminated loans for students, grants and student jobs cover the tuition. You probably have to be a genius to get in there.

  10. that’s 50% and I am just getting started

    aren’t you glad – hey – I did NOT start this horserace.

  11. that creating a place to talk would make me (relatively) shut up? I actually feel guilty sometimes that I don’t comment more, lol. The responsibility of being the “boss” has weighed more heavily on me than I thought.

    That has been the weirdest part for me of this whole journey…..actually having to consider what I yap about, instead of just shooting my mouth off!

    I tried at first to comment in every essay and drove myself nuts….then I FINALLY relaxed and just …did whatever the hell I felt like, lol. Thanks to all of our prolific commenters, including especially our unofficial hostess, Pfiore8!

    Thanks OTB, the CTW and MetaMaster for DD!

  12. 900



    made it

  13. I missed ok I’m done

    FOR NOW`

  14. you guys rock……

  15. number of comments?? Now you tell me!! Well, in defense of those of us lightweights who have only a measly 800 or so comments to their names (holy sh*t, no wonder I’m so far behind on everything!), I can only say that quality should count for something. Otherwise, from now on I’ll just post nonsense. Oh, wait…i already do that. Okay, from now on I’ll just post more nonsense, how’s that?

    Yee-haws for all our Top Commenters.  

    What strikes me most about this list is that everyone on it always has something pertinent to say.  You “guys” are tops.

  16. and I have 124 so far.  I was going to say something about measuring quality vs. quantity, but after skimming through my list I think quantity is my only hope.

    • KrisC on March 31, 2008 at 3:28 am

    this was a CONTEST?

    Holy moly is right!!

    I better get on the ball…

    • Alma on March 31, 2008 at 3:34 am

    Is this:

    Like a council of elders.

    Because we sound like we have alzheimers?  Is that why we have so many comments?  We keep forgetting and repeating the same thing, over and over, and over?  ðŸ˜‰

    • KrisC on March 31, 2008 at 3:38 am

    for most diaries?!?!

    I would put money on Buhdy, well, I would if I had some, that is….!!!

  17. Oops . . .

  18. a most galactically “out there” category.

  19. oops!  this one’s 579!

    • pfiore8 on March 31, 2008 at 4:45 am

    How many people here have heard of this movie?

    How many have seen it?

    Could not find a lot about this. Here’s a short synopsis.

    It’s making the rounds at DFA State sections, and there’s a bit here at Brad Blog.

  20. I don`t have that many, but I was sick as a child.

  21. I am really impressed by those who can write so many comments, especially those of you who made the chart.  I have no idea how you do it.

    I joined 9/12/07, got UID  223, and lived happily ever after.

  22. Crap. Now it says 164.

    This is ridiculous.

  23. Wed, 12 September, so I’ve had plenty of time, too.

    1. Say hi to her from me. 🙂 {waves!}  (Wait.  She can read this, too.)  Hi VC! 😀

      You two get my last email?

      • KrisC on March 31, 2008 at 3:43 am

      I can’t wait ’til you’re entertaining me too!!!

      Shout out to the girls of MA!!!

  24. she used her magic (guilt) to get me off this diary and to post meaningful comments. And look who has been here all along……..

  25. another stalwart member that slipped under my radar…

    mucho respecto for your input here!
