Congrats to:

D0GMA on his promotion to Elite Guard Praporshchik (30th)
Narcissus on his promotion to Elite Guard Sergeant First Class (~60th) &
Syme on his promotion to Elite Guard Sergeant First Class (~61st)

since the last update of the list.

Welcome to:

EVERYONE! #;-}>

Farewell to:

No one! Yay!

DANGER ZONE:

Liquidz2k's at the bottom, but let's not dwell on people being booted off the list RIGHT AFTER I'VE CREATED IT, eh? #;-}>

Greg's Notes:

As you can see, I have now assembled a Top 50 Blammers List. This list was compiled with the help of my Top 50 Protectors List (for the 35 people on both lists), the official NG Top 50 b/p List (for 10 people who are on that but aren't on the top 50 saves), and D0GMA's invaluable Elite Guard Compendium (for the 5 people ranked between #51 and #74 who happen to also be top 50 blammers).

You may check out the most recent Top 50 Protectors List by clicking the link I just posted. Enjoy comparing the lists to each other and to the Top 50 Combined B/P List. People on both the Top 50 Blammers List and the Top 50 Protectors List are denoted with ***.

argh! Man, you posted between the list and the addendum!! Blah. #;-}>

Anyway, I don't keep track of who has an average of 0. You'll have to ask D0GMA. I just keep track of who's ahead of whom, and how many points they have.

I don't, I dunno if Dogma does. I do have AIM, but like I said, I can't really help ya, man. I can tell you who I've noticed being slow lately. And that's people like innphernoe, nostrant, lordfril, b33r53x, maybe Hice.... skum001 is dead to NG... Drimarki obviously doesn't move. A lot of people are clustered right above 6000 and 7000. They just hit the new rank and stop getting blams and saves cause they're satisfied. let that guide you.

As for D0GMA's info, which he can no doubt provide you, just ask him via e-mail or in his topic (the 11 page 51+ rank list one, I forget the exact title).

Bugger that. You just hit Z->A on the spreadsheet I e-mailed you. Admit it, you know you did, even with all those goofy colours that all you did. ;)

NP

LOL @ me. Most of the time I spent was manually typing in the Blam rank numbers until I got to like 60. Then I turned the ranks into a formula and copied it the rest of the way down

What a nit ... should have thought of that earlier

Bugger that. You just hit Z->A on the spreadsheet I e-mailed you. Admit it, you know you did, even with all those goofy colours that all you did. ;)

Nope. I copied all 60 lines from the most recent update of my protectors list xls and pasted to a new spreadsheet. I then changed all the column widths to be the same (as I know no way to make the paste do that, but maybe there is a way...), changed a few column headings (blam rank and changed it from save/blam ratio to blam/save ratio). Everything else I left the same, and I reordered the list by blams. I had considered changing the order of the columns between blams and saves (on the save list it's save/blam, so I thought perhaps I should make it blam/save, but I'm so used to typing in people's save amount first, then their blam amount that it seemed weird to change it.

Then I started finding everyone on the top 50 who wasn't on my top 50 protectors list, and I found out where they went on the list. As I put data onto the bottom of the list, it erased a lot of people who have low blams (toocool was obviously the first victim with his 88 blams).

Once I was done with that, I started looking at every profile link from your xls and finding the current blam totals (your list was a few days old, after all), to find out who belongs on the list as well, and as I said in the quoted material up there, it turns out 5 people aren't on either the protects list or the top 50 combined list.

On the top 50 protects, it's actually 9 people who aren't on the blams list or the top 50 combined, which is just what I expected. More people off the combined top 50 have higher protects than have blam totals that can compete with people in the top 50 overall.

Your list was very useful, but I didn't just copy/paste it. I'll send you the new xls via e-mail right now to prove it. #;-}>

Well, maybe he'd seen how low you were on my top 50 protectors list and forgot you're ranked #8 on the combined list. #;-}>

Speaking of which, I think we're almost exact opposites. You're ranked what, #7 in blams, #18 in saves, I believe. I'm #6 in saves, #18 in blams. Almost opposite perfectly. #;-}>

Damnit, man. For the last time. I'm not going to update the list ALL the time. Do you think it takes 5 seconds to update? I'm not an NG admin.

Nor am I going to add more work for myself just to appease everyone between 50 and 100 on both lists. And even if I did, there would be someone ranked #90 in saves who's off the top 100 blams, and HE'D WANT ME TO EXPAND IT TO TOP 150.

Complain to the Fulps and liljim that the official list is top 50 if you want change. Till then, I only make top 50 lists.

Here, this took like 5 minutes to reconfigure

Users in italics have earned 0 BPs for at least 30 days

Christ almighty. Thanks for satisfying wismty, man, but with all respect, if you're going to upstage me, at least do it in your own topic, and not change this into the top 100 blammers list by D0GMA?

And speaking of wismty. Why didn't you just go to D0GMA's topic and bitch at him about why his lists don't feature blam and save counts along with the total point counts, since he actually keeps track of everyones blams, saves, and totals down to approximately rank #225 and can give you what you want, instead of bitching at me for not satisfying everyone, when I DON'T KEEP TRACK OF PEOPLE OVER 50 BLAMMERS and 50 PROTECTORS.

Seriously. A guy makes a protects list FOR HIMSELF in March, decides to share it with everyone in May, gets mostly good reviews, every now and then someone mentions that he should make a blam list, and when he finally does in July, he gets nothing but complaints about not being on it, or how many people it should have, or whether people not getting points should be shown in italics or bold or bullshit. I think I got one compliment from Crono- about it being a good list. Thank you, Crono-.

The rest of you? Just stop it. Jesus.

As I said, it took very little time to do. Wismty happened to ask on a day in which I had done up everyone's profiles. You've seen my spreadsheet (and took my teasing about it way too seriously) and know just how easy it was for me to have created it.

Personally, I took that as a whine/~sigh~ I could easily take care of, so I did. He asked here, so I answered here.

I didn't happen to notice Christ popping in to critique your post, but is is Sunday and perhaps it was a message just for you.

As soon as you unwind your panties from the bunch they've gotten themselves into, read the other posts in thread with a little more clarity and less indignation. You are familiar enough with my writing style to understand that my original comment was teasing. My list, as you and I are both aware, is more readily altered to new formats (like this) than yours, which means two things. First, I know you wouldn't conscience simply using someone else's work and would have ground out a new list of your own in your own format, which you also apparently felt some overwhelming need to prove to me. Second, you, in kind, are familiar enough with my thought process (check the mirror) that you should have understood that and read my posts in that light. Yes, in hindsight, my second post should have simply been the 51-100, but I was trying to speed post it to see how long it would take me.

Wismty was complaining about not being on your list in the exact same way he complains about not being on NGling's. It gives him something to whine about so he's happy. Spancker's comment about bold/italics was directed at me and is a continuation of the laziness he's been posting in my thread that I've been ignoring; wismty simply added to it. The remainder of the posts are the same as happens in my thread, people talking to each other about the stats.

I'm sorry it appeared to you that I was "hijacking" this thread. Had I been interested in doing so, I would have posted a top 50 Blammor thread back on Thursday. And yes, the thought crossed my mind; I chose not to act on it as I knew you would be.

I thought WI/HT was about helping, not about protecting egos. Apologies to everyone else at whom Greg lashed out, as the catalyst for it was obviously my post.

Look, man. I knew you were teasing me when you "accused" me of just reordering your list, but things like that taken with all the other crap from last night, in addition to the fact that I was in a really shitty mood, led me to get fairly upset.

I'm not going to go count up the amount of complaints I got (and hell, spancker basically made 8 posts in this thread and the top 50 Protectors asking me to give him info, or put him on the list, or update it again real quick... and this was on Saturday morning... or at least it started then... hell, I believe YOU told him off more than I did when you snapped something about checking the stats in your topic to him).

So when I come on after sleeping all day in the evening (my sleep schedule is fucked, and I don't want to get into the shit going on in my real life) I was losing my patience with that as it was still going on, and then everyone else came in with more complaints.

Can you see where I was coming from?

In any event, I'm sorry for being in a pissy mood yesterday, but it wasn't entirely uncalled for, and if you look at this paragraph from me:

Seriously. A guy makes a protects list FOR HIMSELF in March, decides to share it with everyone in May, gets mostly good reviews, every now and then someone mentions that he should make a blam list, and when he finally does in July, he gets nothing but complaints about not being on it, or how many people it should have, or whether people not getting points should be shown in italics or bold or bullshit. I think I got one compliment from Crono- about it being a good list. Thank you, Crono-.

The rest of you? Just stop it. Jesus.

And then you look at your response to me, including that cherished ol' line "panties in a bunch"... anyway, I won't bother quoting all of it, because I think you overreacted to my overreactions just a bit, and I don't like neverending spirals of increasing overreaction. I'd rather nip it in the bud now.

But I do want to address one thing:

First, I know you wouldn't conscience simply using someone else's work and would have ground out a new list of your own in your own format, which you also apparently felt some overwhelming need to prove to me.

I didn't feel the need to prove anything to you. That long reply about how I made the list was for the benefit of every other human being on the planet who might stumble into the thread aside from you and me, so THEY would know how I made it.

You and I could joke all we want in e-mails about ripping each other off, and not mean it, and I'd be fine with that, but with all the crap going on, someone ELSE might have interpreted your comments as being TRUE. Capisce?

In summary, I wasn't freaking out about you thinking I copied your list, I was upset that other people might get that impression, other people who don't know you (or me) as well. And as such, I got defensive. Who wouldn't if they felt their reputation was on the line?

Second, you, in kind, are familiar enough with my thought process (check the mirror) that you should have understood that and read my posts in that light.

See the above.

I'm sorry it appeared to you that I was "hijacking" this thread. Had I been interested in doing so, I would have posted a top 50 Blammor thread back on Thursday. And yes, the thought crossed my mind; I chose not to act on it as I knew you would be.

And one last thing. If you reread my pissed off post once more, I think you'll notice that I didn't spend the entire thing yelling about you hijacking my thread, I made one comment about it being something you could update your own thread with (or make a new one, or whatever), and I was mostly upset because wismty made the accidental mistake of requesting the same thing that other people had, that being expanding the list/posting it more often, RIGHT after I made it. I don't seem to remember anyone EVER asking me to expand the top 50 protectors for some reason. I guess people really do care more about blams.

Anyway, point being, sometimes it feels (and I'm sure you can relate, with the work you put in on your list), like most people don't realise you're making something for fun, and it takes time and effort, and you're not exactly being paid for it or reimbursed with "extra exp" or anything by NG for it, and they start requesting more things. And it may be meant as a polite question, but it ends up sounding more and more like lists of demands from a publisher or something.

It's enough to make you wish you hadn't started posting your own private lists on the BBS. But then again, through 444 posts in the top 50 saves thread, I never had that feeling, so... if one person got some interest out of it, encouragement to get some more protects and not worry about blams so much, whatever... then it was worth this.

I thought WI/HT was about helping, not about protecting egos. Apologies to everyone else at whom Greg lashed out, as the catalyst for it was obviously my post.

it really wasn't. your post was an entirely different thing than all the other demands I perceived were being made on my time and effort.

Whether real or imagined, last night was already shitty enough for me that I got pissed off at some people here. Yep, that's right, I'm human, not just some robot who spits out top 50 lists. Go figure.
