Guitarman going to downvote you twice to retake the lead isn't he?

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

MONGO!

I thought I was doing OK at 4K+... sheesh

Is it football season yet?

Gotta go find some guitarman posts to upvote!

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Good grief, I have been a member for a couple months longer than alum, and about a year shorter than guitarman, and I'm sittin pretty at 6k

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

That's probably because of your Avatar.

I was once up to like 15th. Then I graduated, and don't have the opportunity to TKP at work.

It's 4:55 pm right now. Get back to work!

Just checked, I am around 12K legs over four years and four months membership. So at that rate I will need 17.5 years to catch where they are today...

We put the K in Kwality

Yeah, but what is your leg to post ratio? That's a better judge of quality. /s

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

Exactly. Paging Joel Smith. We need a "by the (advanced) numbers" post on Guitarman v. Alum

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

Actually I was trying to reference Hokie07ME's post in the D. J. Crossed sets Commitment Date thread about papa Mook, but lack the technical know how to link it. He describes how to to run the numbers for anyone with the time/ability/passion to do so. My money is on a kicker to be in the lead now.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

Yeah, Mook's dad and Shane are probably right at the top. But Mook's dad drunk-posting is a gorram national treasure. The run-up to the Battle at Bristol was glorious.

And yes, I think Kick17 wins this outright with 26.4

Alum07 has 6.4
VTGuitarman has 7.0
hokie07ME has 7.6
so there you have it. Unless you are a alumnus player with a storied NFL career, turkey legs is more about quantity of posts rather than quality.

I'm at 6.59 as of now. But your formula doesn't account for legs given to the authors of newly created posts. Still a good metric though

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

Right. I totally forgot about legs for post rather than comments. I can't think of a good way to account for those...so they don't count.

To preface my next statement, I got about 3 hrs of sleep last night and I'm already on redbull #2 for the day.

Following your directions and figuring out that my legs/post ratio is 6.33 pushed me to my limits, both physically and mentally.

I need a nap

3.85. Booo

Need to judge this the same way we do citations in academia: h-index. Your h-index is n when you have n posts with at least n legs. E.g. if you have at least 10 posts where each has 10 legs, then your h-index is 10. It's an elegant way to quantify a good blend of quality and quantity.

And yes, I did a math major before going to grad school so I get way too interested in all things math.

would be v tedious to calculate for tkp

Chem PhD '16

Yep. I just saw that I'd busted 10K, and without ever posting a gif. But, like the man just said, oh so many posts with 0 or one leg, so it's maybe more an indication of how much free time I have than how much I've contributed to the site. Hopefully, I'll do better in the future. 20K is a long way off.

Reel men fish on Wednesdays

Don't Alum and Bud both get a pass every now and then?

As long as he (Alum07) continues to bring in 4-5* TKPC members.

So does this mean all Mod powers now transfer to Alum? I kind of like the idea of TKP being an eternal power struggle.

Can we find some way to make an imperialism map for TKP, but instead involving turkey legs?

Territories have value and you can purchase them as you please. Once monthly, everyone puts in bids. Their legs are the total amount they can bid. Winner each month can legally form a sovereign nation out of their owned land.

Want Blacksburg? Be ready to pony up some fat legs. Don't care where your territory is? Form an empire in the frozen north and march on Kings Landing.

But seriously, congratulations on your new title of king of the dung heap.

Looked at my legs. You average 10x more legs than me, per day.

Actually, VTGM has now reclaimed the throne and leads rival Alum by 106 legs. Major power play by the VTGM faction today to reclaim control of our TKP feudal society.

Clearly Guitarman is using his position as a professor to get his students to give him legs.

It is a little-known fact that the Alum07 account began as an alt, programming by some crappy AI code that I came up with one day after getting extremely drunk (codename: project A07). I failed to account for the "if (becomes_selfaware)" condition and did not code in an escape clause. An account set up to automatically up-leg my own posts and serve as a slightly more cantankerous version of myself was thus on a path to unseat me. And there was nothing I could do. The alt had already changed the login password, set up its own email account, and somehow purchased large quantities of bourbon on my credit card (respect).

In all seriousness, congrats, buddy. Turkey legs are a fun way to show positive engagement in the community, and their accumulation reflects longevity on the site, important contributions, or both. I knew as soon as I accepted my new job that my reign of terror benevolent, exemplary leadership would soon come to an end.
