Please notify me of any corrections. Updates: Added Wil Wheaton per AC comment; Added Bruce Perens; Added John Carmack; Moved Eric Krout up one spot to #4 after overtaking Bruce Perens

As it stands, I'm more than halfway there toward gaining more fans than Rob "CmdrTaco" Malda. That would be a neat accomplishment and one that I'd be very proud of.

If I can come through (I was on sabatical for a week), I think it would only be proper for Rob to give me some leadership position here at Slashdot. Perhaps I could serve as a liaison between the members and the editors/coders to ensure that Slashdot continues to develop and "scale" with its increasing membership and database size.

Thanks for reading. I truly love you all and enjoy the time I spend here at Slashdot. If I can help any of you with anything (even non-Slashdot related), please let me know. I'm always there for friends (and fans ;-D).

Nice idea. But I only approve of adding you as an editor if we also get sllort and Profane Motherfucker.

Your mom is finally going to let you fuck her up the ass like you been asking for every year.
The 'it can be my birthday AND christmas present' line worked this time.
I guess she was tired of you pestering her year after year. Enjoy!

Who's Who on Slashdot [shacknet.nu] . Nice little list of some big names.

Re:The Slashdot Who's Who (2)

turg (19864) | more than 11 years ago | (#4924329)

Alan Cox has 198 -- does that qualify for the list?

UID (1)

singularity (2031) | more than 10 years ago | (#4928131)

I am actually proud to say that I have a lower Slashdot UID than all but one of the people on that list.

Please elucidate! (2)

Safety Cap (253500) | more than 11 years ago | (#4925890)

How did you compile those numbers? Hopefully not by hand...

Re:Please elucidate! (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 11 years ago | (#4927691)

Here's an easy way from the Unix/Linux command prompt:
wget --quiet -O- http://slashdot.org/~$1/fans -U "The Slashdot New Karma Tracker (tm)(r) TPL 1.0"| grep fans | grep "HREF=\"//slashdot" | wc | gawk '{printf("You have %s fans. PATHETIC.\n",$1)}'
Put this command in a file, make it executable, and run it by passing in the username as the argument.

Safety Cap (253500) | more than 10 years ago | (#4929046)

That's pretty slick. How long can it run before one's IP address gets BANNED, tho?

Re:Please elucidate! (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 11 years ago | (#4934070)

Um, how many people's fans list can you check before your IP address is banned?

The CowboyNeal standard (2)

turg (19864) | more than 10 years ago | (#4929676)

I think that having more fans than CowboyNeal (the most-discussed person on /.) should be the standard for making it on to this list.

Using the script posted above, we find that CowboyNeal has 215 fans. SlashChick has 232 fans -- so another benefit of this method is that the list now also recognizes the female /. user with the most fans.
