I'm probably not the first to suggest this, so I'd like to add my voice to the chorus:

I'd like to see golden thumbs represent ALL of the thumbs that a user compiles on the 'Geek: not only geeklists, but also images, threads, and all other contributions. This would give a complete picture of a user's quality contibutions to the site.

That's funny Robert, I was just thinking I'd create a thread about this to suggest the same thing. If it's feasible and not too much work for Aldie, it would be cool if Golden Thumbs represented all thumbs up received for any content.

Of course, it would also have to subtract thumbs that users give to their own content. (j/k)

I also would like a regular thumb for every 10, so that on a user page
this:

thumbsupthumbsup

would mean that this user had 320-some recommends over the total site.

That could lead to *a lot* of thumbs. How about something like the star ranking system on eBay where we have various colored thumbs.

White = 10
Red = 25
Blue = 50
etc etc etc

After a 1000 would it really matter what your status was?

Then next to the thumb actually have the count, and clicking on this item will take you to a breakdown of where the thumbs from and clicking on the category (images) will then show you all the images, for example, that garnered the thumbs.

No, it would never be more than 9. at 10, the user would get another golden thumb and they would flip back to 0.

I think I have seen some popular folk with more than 10 goldens though, which could be converted into something higher, like an ultra-thumb.

So like this:

meeple
thumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsup

would be 1540-some recommends.

I didn't realize that the golden thumbs only corresponded to recommended geeklists. Does it say anywhere on the site that this was Aldie's intent?

Do we really need a "visual representation" of something doable simply with a number? Wouldn't a voice "thumbs received: 1540" in the profile (just as we've for forum replies, written reviews, etc.) be better?

In the original "golden thumbs" thread, maybe (when the "feature" was silently introduced).

There was a slight miscalculation in the threads tabulator.

Awesome Aldie! Talk about a fast turn-around from the original request to having it done.

Strange - I saw my total at work this afternoon.
But all evening, I haven't seen my total thumbs at all. Though I do see totals for others. Did the system hiccough?
