It's surprising to me that only one strategy article in 2012 received over 100 thumbs.

Thank you and congrats to all authors of these top strategy articles!

I wonder if the low number of thumbs is because Aldie counted the thumbs on the thread rather than the thumbs on the actual post. I'm more likely to thumb the post rather than the thread topic. Perhaps I need to change my practice.
As a humble observation, there always seems to be more thumbs on the post than the thread topic... whistle

The thumb-count that 'counts' is clearly the thumbs on the thread, and not the first-article thumbs.

For longer articles, it is more likely that the reader will thumb the first post as opposed to the thread (which is all the way back at the top of the thread!)

I'm happy to have the top article (it took a while to craft it). The gap from first to second is... substantial.

Strategy Articles also don't have the thumb power of Sessions or Reviews due to not having a first page box for them. The only folks who see them are the ones going into the game page itself. It's unfortunate as my favorite forum topic is strategy.

Is there a metalist of these articles? I'd like to Quickbar all the Top Lists to look at some of them at leisure, but the QB's kinda full. (I'll be happy to make one if there's not, but my Search Fu is weak.)
