Rather than digging up more silly Youtube videos, Fail fotos and other nonsense, I call upon all chitchatters to participate in the first File Thumbing Friday.

Around page 600 of the file pages the files with a single thumb start. It takes two thumbs to count for a file uploader award badge, so that seems a good place to start thumbing worthwhile files. Of course, you don't have to thumb files you think are useless, but thumbing contributions that obviously took considerable effort might be a nice way to spend a few minutes you would have wasted otherwise.

Thanks in advance.


-edit-
If some of you actually participate, it may be advisable to not start at the same page at the same time. Hence, if you do participate, please mention that in this thread, and mention at what page you are starting. If someone else just started, please add 10 or 20 pages to the page where you start. I just started at page 700, by the way.

Nice overview. How do you get there using the 'regular path'; the BGG buttons?

I checked (and thumbed, where due) the last 15 pages, so I think my BGG Friday chore has been done

Great idea. I thumb every file I use, but I've never done this.

Best time killer of my morning. Looking for games I play and files that I've found useful and "stolen" in the past before I became more enlightened. 601, 602, 603... jumping to 800. Found 1 file so far of use to me. Thumbed and downloaded.

It occurs to me that some of these people may already have awards for uploading....

Yeah, man, I would TOTALLY do that if I cared about board games any more. Unfortunately, bacon is the only draw this site has for me any more.

Is it friday again?

Cuz I just checked my files

0 thumbsup SL Army builder, 178 downloads,
0 thumbsup PoG_OddsCalculator.xls, 2 versions, 401 downloads total,
3 thumbsup VitP_RefSheetv2EN.jpg, 830 downloads,
1 thumbsup Awale-rules.DOC, 477 downloads,
0 thumbsup And even the dutch VitP_RefSheetNL.jpg has 215 downloads. But 0 thumbs

So after uploading 6 files (5 entries) with an avg. of 350 downloads each, I still haven't earned a copper file uploader MB

soblue

And that's just me, must be the same for rest of the army of file uploaders.

It seems a lot of those files were added before BGG was tracking who uploaded them and also before thumbs were added to the site, hence their lack of thumbs.

Since I agree with the premise, off looking to find files with users attached.
