A thought I just want to throw out here. If I were needing to cut back on any update schedules, one possibility in mind is to reduce the B/P update from fortnightly to 4-weekly. As much as I want to help you guys out with updating these lists on a regular basis, after 4 years of doing the same thing one can start to feel worn out by them. I'm not saying I will be quitting the B/P updates but if I feel in the new year I need to cut back a bit, this is one possibility. I know having the updates 4-weekly might be a little too long for B/P updates so I'd like to hear what the readers in this thread think if the updates were to be less frequent.
FEEDBACK IS GOOD!
I hear you, my friend. By all means, go to a 4-week cycle (13 updates per year) - or even just post it on the 1st of the month (like we do the roster in the EGB). Users can still track their own stats with NG Logs - and if you want, we can get the kinks out of the beta stat management site (Top 300) so you can just manage the list online and let the system do all of the heavy lifting. I can make a tweak to hide users if they are banned from your list - or you can disable them from the internal master database. Let me know if you'd like to pursue that again, ok?
In any event, your work is always appreciated, and whatever you can do comfortably, we will be all more than happy to accept.
UPDATE 2nd December 2012
Okay, who besides me hasn't started Christmas shopping yet?
Days to 100k B/P
byteslinger - 140
My estimates are a little bigger - I figure on 25 BP per day over the next 5 months based on season portal slowdown. In any event, come Spring 2013 I should eventually work my way up to #11 - and then be stuck behind EhWaz300 for the rest of my life. That would make me the 13th user on Newgrounds to break 100K.
Gagsy - 285.71
And a few months later, she'll be #14. Well done, my dear!

Looks like Ms. Gagsy and I are hitting just about the same pace - and that debonaire yet haughty over-achiever Coop is running away like he's being chased by the three spirits of Christmas - almost 20% better than us girls at 14 & 15. Slow down...take it easy - you don't want to burn yourself out as such a young age....hehehe...
Thanks again, Bahamut -you are a gentleman and a scholar (well, that's what it says on your poster in the Post Office!)
