Slashdot Achievements Leaderboards?

I became curious (about Slashdot achievements, silly) and searched to no avail. Anyone have any clue?

Since getting a few accomplishments, I am suddenly getting mod points MUCH more frequently. An order of magnitude more frequently.

Similar story here. At about that time, I went from getting mod points once every 2 or 3 weeks to 2 or 3 times a week.

Or maybe the editors just think it's cute to hear someone with a slightly Aussie accent using Yiddish slang.

That sounds awesome.

To paraphrase David Byrne, "I've changed my accent so many times now, I don't know what I sound like..."

I don't know if there is a leaderboard (1)

... though I do recall at one point before I found a way that you could compare your achievements to those of any 1 other slashdot user. If you go to slashdot.org/~(user)/achievements it will show you how that user's achievements compare to your own. For example if you look at mine you can see that my story submissions have been shot down every time since 2009 - every. single. time. I suspect my incredible metamoderation streak probably ended the same time they broke it permanently back in '09.

It's keen to know about the comparison feature. I win. Or maybe that means I lose.

You can take heart in knowing that you've had more submissions accepted than I have...

Who the fuck cares how many submissions you've had accepted?

People who actually have something to contribute to the discussion? Just a wild guess...

I think the all-time uber-achievement goes to the person who can figure out wtf all the achievements mean and what events trigger each of them. People have asked before, and to the best of my knowledge they have heard crickets in response.

Although you've had one accepted more recently, it appears. If there were a credit for the most consecutive rejected submissions I would likely be in the running. They should also have one that counts "rejected submissions that became stories went submitted later by other users", my score on that would be much higher than my score of accepted submissions.

...tagger or something like that and wondered how they could see the spray paint can through my monitor.

drinkypoo (153816) | about a year and a half ago | (#43029971)

the contradictor is for !tagging something which is tagged, I can tell you that much. I thought they just knew THAT about me somehow, I thought slashdot might be becoming self-aware

"I thought slashdot might be becoming self-aware"

Careful, it might hear you.

Make sure your electric toothbrush is unplugged.

  • ul
  • li
  • dl
