Thanks to Pianoman for the code to table-ize it!

It's interesting how some started off so innocently, but really snowballed. Particularly Frenchy's WAYT - a legendary thread. Congrats to all the authors in The Thou Club!

What are some of your board highlights this year?

Congratulations to Skittles for being the only poster to create two treads in the top 20. I don't think it comes as a shock to anyone that they are both about games.

Nope, bored at work.

But I did find looking at the list quite interesting. Seeing some authors who have left us, discovering a quarter of them were gaming related, seeing tragedy and frivolity. A nice round up, I think.

I don't think so. All he had to do is one click to find out this information. I'm sure Doug could add a lot more to the thread.

sounds like a pretty accurate discription of the TCF to me. That is why I spend my time here.

And some were started a little as a week ago! Props to Bgreen and Waldingrl on some power threading at the end of the year.

I think it's pretty impressive that one of the top 23 was only created a week ago

I don't understand how anyone keeps up with it! There must be some secret 'insider' technique.

Don't you need to adjust the reply count to only include posts actually made in 2005?

Why didn't you count any TV Show Talk threads? I know one thread there that got so many posts that when you Googled the big celebrity that the thread was about, the thread came up first!

The largest TV Show Talk thread I saw was Joe Schmoe and it was the only one over 1000 posts.

Nice work Indy!

So, apparently, we're a bunch of free-thinking, drunken, Mac-using, insomniac, overweight, gambling addicted, auditory hallucinating, fantasy loving, narcisistic, thieving, partygoing, gift-giving photogs with charitable hearts of gold.

With all that goin' on, there's lots of room for me to feel like less of an outsider!

You can start a "Top TV Threads" thread there, then. This is for Happy Hour.

Another interesting thing would be to see the single TOPIC with the greatest number of separate (unique) threads.

I'm guessing Serenity would come out on top.

If you went by non-unique/general, I'd guess YAMMs, Birthdays, and "Is [THIS] Stealing?".

Opinions are like anal sphincters (for lack of a better word), everyone has one and everyone thinks that other people's stinks.
