Being part of this community is very fun and very useful at the same time. I got a lot from that, and I also posted something here and there hoping to be useful to others. This gave occasion to get some thumbs-up, that now total 20.000. Not many if compared to those of far more illustrious members of this community, but more than enough to be grateful and happy.

This list is to thank you all and to see which posts mostly contributed to that not little amount. Maybe some are still worth a look. Some can still raise a smile.

Out of 4149 thumbs up given to my geeklist items, 288 went to item #99 of the "Games Where Some Guy Just Totally Flipped Out" list where I tell my (simulated) war memories of when I took Alexandria with a few Italian "pilchard cans" at Campaigns for North Africa:

Tanks everybody!

The most thumbed up thread answers of mine (112 on 4800) was posted after Christian T. Petersen, CEO of Fantasy Flight Games, commented a photo of En Garde and the lack of any license by Knizia or reference to him in the game.
BGGeeks immediatly commented on FFG's aptitude toward designers quoting the Wings of War/X-Wing case (a license was asked offering credits and royalties, then the offer was retired before the agreement was signed) and the Merchant of Venus case. After some contributes by others, I gave my point of view.

103 out of 4737 thumbs up received for images were given to this silly card made to introduce Snoopy in Wings of War: Famous Aces, a harsh work of mine made by MacPaint.

https://boardgamegeek.com/image/39402/wings-war-famous-aces

It was even quoted in Dork Tower!

Even if for me it's hard to make jokes in a foreign language, 75 out of 3444 thumbs up received for comments went to a joke about the hypotetical consequences of Games Workshop producing Tic-Tac-Toe, posted in the "What if Games Workshop made Mass Market games?" geeklist:

With 54 out of 3444 thumbs up for comments, another pun is the runner up for this category. Is this image related to "Wings of War - Famous Aces" or...

The most thumbed-up thread of mine, 54 on 1059, is a quite obvious classic - "First RPG you ever played?"

39 thumbs up of the 60 I got for files (65%) come from the Wings of War pdf rulebook in English, posted in May 2004 when the English edition had just been released.
