Would it be possible to see which BGG users have the most game ratings and specifically those which have the most number of games commented on in their profiles. I think that would be a very useful feature when it comes to selecting geekbuddies for various purposes.

Re: Seeing who has the most game ratinsg and game comments.
Ya.. that's what I'm talking about. BGG users like Morgan and Chris Farrell are legends. I love reading the comments and ratings from those people who have rated AND commented on 500+ games... so it would be nice to more easily be able to pull up those type of users.

Re: Seeing who has the most game ratinsg and game comments.
Brilliant stuff Joe. This is exactly the type of usability that should be easily accessible within the BGG database. I applaud your efforts at making this available as I know it takes some fancy data scraping to get at all the available data. GG definitely earned for this list.

D'oh! I thought I'd be on the list for sure, but I'm not. 224 rating and comments not enough to qualify.

Sorry Rob, to compile the above list it's filtered to counting top 1000 game comments with at least 100 characters.

Edit: "top 1000 games", only because that's the comment data I have available though it's a reasonably useful proxy, "100 characters" to try to favour users who write more detail about their ratings.

I also (tried to) filter for comments in English, since the original requester is an Australian.

Joe, the force is strong with you. You are like a roving Jedi, doing good deeds throughout the BGG universe! I recently tried to put more useful comments in on all my rated games... time to go back and try harder!

Oh, I forgot. Do or do not, there is no try.

You could select me on the sole reason that I know what I am about, at least when it comes to wargames.

Indeed my list is only by quantity. For "quality", you will still have to do your own assessing.

Joe... a big thanks for the list of "verbose" users. You indeed have done a lot on interesting work and data manipulation on BGG that have entertained many here... but your flag recognition skills need some improving. NZ is not quite yet a part of Aussie.

The list you provided has been great. I like reading the detailed comments of various individuals and I've found plenty to peruse in those collections.

To my mind the most valuable part of the BGG database is the game comments section of every BGG collection where people outline their thoughts and observations on games they have played. Everything else on BGG is icing but that section is the true meat of the site.

It would be nice to have an easily sortable database on BGG where you could see who has the most comments entered, the most detailed comments etc. Those are the geeks that take the time to add valuable content to the site by giving their summarized opinions on the games they have tried and I think it would encourage more people to write more detailed comments (or simply add comments where they have none now) if we could more easily sort and filter for users that do so as well.

Don't fool yerself. NZ is a mere annex to the largest state of the USA.

(Actually it's just that my old and decrepit eyes didn't spot the missing star. Who designed our idiot flags anyway?)
