I recently took a cold hard look at the thumbs I have received. There is an interesting phenomenon at work here.

I have -- as of this writing -- only received a scant 2817 thumbs. I am not the biggest contributor to BGG, although I do read it every day.

Here is a breakdown of my thumbs. You will note I speak of adjusted thumbs. That is because I have received a significant number of thumbs from one particular source and I have adjusted the thumbs on geeklist items and comments to take that into account. It will all make sense in the end.

This is my 17th geeklist. Previously, my best number of thumbs on a geeklist was 56. I have received 148 thumbs from geeklists I have started, making it about 5% of my overall thumbs.

We don't have the best cameras and I am not a good photographer in any case, so my images have received as scant 8% of my total thumbs.

So where did the adjusted thumbs go? Well, there was this geeklist recently posted by

. My additions there got a whopping 304 thumbs, 11% of my total. That's more than geeklists, images, threads, or files.

All from one source.... That sort of blows my mind, you know? I'd like to thank Legomancer for posting the geeklist and for all of you for thumbing me.
