One of these days I'd love to see the formula you use, but the secrecy of it is part of the interest. Nice plan you have laid out for the month. Looking forward to seeing how the year stacks up. Thanks for keeping tabs on all this.

Hi, Swordmaster. Looking forward to it - and it looks like #5 is your spot :)

Hi, nas-t. Welcome back to the list this week!

Hi, rooker1 It's mostly thanks to noahclem, but I did add a bit myself. I like the idea of having some different BTT traditions here to contrast with BTT at ST.

Hi, noahclem. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi, sim_link. Me, too! One thing I've learned from doing BTT is that the outcome is often surprising.

Hi, threestooges. I could show you, but then I'd have to kill you. Just kidding... it is mostly straightforward, and is approximately the number of unique, non-author replies in a week, divided by the number of author updates. I track the MDs for the 28 days prior to the current date, with diminishing returns for each week.  There are some small factors included - Ben's 'special sauce' if you like ;)

Hi, Pat. There'll be a lot of updates in this topic this month - so stay tuned.
__________________________________________________________________________
 :-\ Ben's Top Ten: SC4D :-\

Today's update is a regularly scheduled BTT. It is also the last one of SC4Devotion's 6th year in existence!

Congratulations to Siilijoki for speeding back to number one with a chilling Halloween update.

There are four re-entries: welcome back to Casper's Portfolio, Alba Can mu Dheas, Federal Republlic of Belleny and Tarkusian Cities.

Have a great birthday month, everyone! :party:

Hi, nas-t128. Welcome back to the list this week!

Now I think you mixed out two names. lol

Congratulations Noah! No doubt you're number one with your spooky update!

But we're both in the list, so it's right - somehow.  $%Grinno$%

Seriously, I didn't crack your formula and manipulate replies!

Also, thanks for (almost) a year worth of top ten lists. Always something to look out for!


Cheers

Hi, art128. Mistake? What mistake? Ah, pity I can't edit your post as well as my own :)

Hi, nas-t. Great to have you commenting here!

Hi, Swordmaster I believe you - and you're welcome.

Hi, Pat. There'll be a lot of updates in this topic this month - so stay tuned.

For today's update, we get into the BTT Time Machine, and take you back to a few days after SC4D's 5th birthday...

...only to find that the same MD on top at the end of the year is the same one on top at the start of the year.

Congratulations to Siilijoki!

Have a great birthday month, everyone! :party:

Mmm, why am I not surprised?

A few MDs on that list I'm missing today. . . crossing my fingers to see Adara rebooted, for example.

I'm really wondering how you do this. Do you go through all of the MDs the check whether there's been posts in that week? Doing this in the present seems easy. In the past, not so.

Cheers
Willy

Nice idea of the back-in-time updates. This one is actually my favourite. It contains nearly all my favourite MD's.
I like your work with the Ben's Top Ten. You put so much time and effort in this. Well done and thanks! ;)

Very interesting to see what was popular a year ago. Long before I actually became semi-active here. :P

The time machine is quite the project! Doing the normal listings seems like a project to me, the research for the time machine updates must really be intense! Thanks  :thumbsup:
