Leaving Zonker Brockmeier (#22) in the dust, and Ubuntu community manager Jono Bacon (#15) better start watching out....#38 is occupied by one cybormoron!

WOW! I made the top 20 list. COOL! I'm honored. I'd prefer a winning Powerball Lottery ticket, though... even a little jackpot ($20M or so) would be fine. ;)Oh, and Urmas is right. I'm busted. Here's a pic of me taken a few years ago with my pal Anne Francis:AnneFrancisRobbytheRobotForbiddenPl.jpgAnd it takes one to know one. Here's a pic of Urmas-2000:urmas-2000.png:hysterical:

Hey, great Eric! Congratulations. (Psst--we still remember the guy who jumped up and down on his hardware when an install went bad. You've come a long way baby!)

wow, amazing, i'm number 38? what the heck are they basing that on? it's funny because i've been nothing but overly critical of the site. i even drafted up a ranting, raving, lunatic, response to a previous post here about their anniversary but decided not to post it. the gist of it was that as much as i'd like to participate on the site i find it difficult to navigate, confusing to use, and slightly annoying. i even say so on the site in my "wall" posts. i've taken a wait and see approach hoping that they make some adjustments.it's good that someone from there solicited feedback and i hope they can address some of the issues. it shows that at least the site wasn't abandoned.another issue is that most users seem to have abandoned the place. a lot of profiles show three to six month periods of last login or activity. where'd everybody go? it seems there was a rush to register when the site was introduced but nobody came back. a few hung around but most stayed away.i just wonder if they are considering making adjustments. i hope they do. any constructive criticism i might offer would amount to nothing but annoying, petty complaints or insults so i just keep my mouth shut and wait. i basically just don't like the layout. oh well, best wishes to them is all i can say.anyways.......congrats eric.

I completely agree :P I have a problem with the whole "guru" point system but I think that is getting changed as well: http://www.linux.com/community/blogs/linux...mendations.html
