I just saw something on BGG that I thought was fairly surprising. It made me wonder whether others would be able to find it. Item #1 in this list will be a quest for others to try find it (or something that beats it).

Feel free to add other items describing hunts for users to try to find!

For this question, we are looking for a user. We are looking for someone who only gives out ratings of exactly 10. There are a few users in this category, but among those who only give out 10s, who has given out the most? (If they've also given out N/As, that's ok--I'm just talking about non-zero ratings) I'm not actually sure, of course, but I have one in mind, and I'm curious if anyone can find someone with more.

For an entry, post the number of 10s and username.

Edit: I'll put up 5 for anyone who finds the user I did, and 10 for anyone who finds a user with even more.
