Never mind the volume - feel the quality

It seems like every few days there is a post from somebody celebrating a thumbsup milestone - 500, 1,000, 2,000 or whatever. To all these people (and to those who get thumbs but don't post celebrations) a hearty congratulations.

But 1,000 thumbs can be gathered quite quickly...

One image, post or geeklist that grips the public imagination can get you 100+ thumbsup A couple of these might boost your total when the rest of your content is mediocre.

And on the other hand, you could post 200 comments every day for two weeks to get your meeple , but 1,000 thumbsup for nearly 3,000 comments wouldn't strike me as very impressive.

So, here begins my quest for the quality contributors - those who regularly gather the thumbsup . If you have had one or two lucky strikes on a seam of thumbsup, or have substituted quantity for quality in your search for the thumb then seek ye out a different geeklist.

But if you are, or know of, a solid contributor who always gets the thumbs, then let us all know here.

Rules:
In each category for which you can receive thumbs I will set a purely arbitrary 'minimum contribution' limit. You must have contributed more than the limit in that category to qualify.
Simply divide your thumbs received in that category by your number of contributions to give your 'quality quotient'.
If your quality quotient in any category is higher than mine (which is admittedly setting the bar quite low in most areas), then please post it below.
Even better - if you know of somebody who stands out in any area, then add their numbers to relevant item so we know.

[b]Now go! Seek out the thumbworthy and celebrate them here.

Apologies:
1. This is the best formula I could come up with for highlighting consistent contributors. Unfortunately, there is a skew towards people with lower numbers of contributions. I am sure that some stats geek out there could come up with a better methodology. Any offers?
2. Many of the really great contributors to this site have been around a long while (since before thumbs) and therefore dont figure as prominently on this list as they should. If anyone has an idea how I could resolve this, that would be appreciated.

Images

Minimum contribution: 100 images
The bar (boltongeordie's quality quotient) = 3.01 thumbsup

There are some fantastic photographers on this site. Most of us could name usual suspects (quality quotient in brackets)
oldestmanonmyspace (6.01)
gamephotos (5.46)
Ronster0 (4.47)

and there are plenty of others, but the undoubted leader in this category is:
Gollum (26.4) - yes that is 3165 thumbs for just 120 images. A phenomenal (but well deserved) ratio because pretty much every one of those 120 images is incredible. I could have chosen any one of a dozen iconic images from his first page of submissions alone.

Geeklists

Minimum contribution: 10 Geeklists
The bar (set arbitrarily) = 25 thumbsup

Great geeklisters that spring to mind are (quality quotient in brackets)
Robartin (57.8)
Legomancer (37.8)
1000rpm (37.9)
mrbeankc (38.4)
Admiral Fisher (26.6)


And, rather embarassingly, because self-publicity was not my objective when I started this list, I find that my 18 Geeklists, which have gathered me well over 1,000 thumbs, put me out in front of these luminaries.
boltongeordie (65.3)

Fortunately, to preserve my modesty, there is at least one geek with a higher average Chaosbreaker (139.5) who has the most thumbed list by far - SoftBoard Games: Free Computer Version of Board and Card Games with Computer AI (Artificial Intelligence) Opponents with Screen Shots.

Can you add other great geeklisters and their quality quotient?

Geeklist items - including people who run voting lists

Minimum contribution: 200 items
The bar (set arbitrarily) = 5 thumbsup

I guess the first name that springs to mind is 1000rpm (8.5), but by no means does he have the highest quality quotient.

There is:
Sky Knight X (8.93)
Randy Cox (17.2)
Huber (17.44)
Blott (24.8)


Have I missed any more kings of the voting list?

Geeklist comments

Minimum contribution: 50 comments
The bar (boltongeordie's quality quotient) = 0.5 thumbsup

The field is wide open here - I can't find many people at all with a high ratio of thumbs, but there must be plenty. If you are one of these people, please add a comment.

I am not a big user of the file system or player aids, but I have found a few champion file uploaders. Any others?

Minimum contribution: 500 replies
The bar (boltongeordie's quality quotient) = 0.81 thumbsup

This seems to be where the flashing blades shine - the stars of the fiery debate and the devastating put-down

DWTripp (1.25)
MrSkeletor (1.23)
crackedlcd81 (2.00)


But surely there must be some regular, temperate contributors that score highly here?
