I think for some of us, a blue ribbon is not a very realistic goal right now. A "meaningless number" could be a personal goal that is attainable while we are developing our skills. Once that is achieved, then maybe a ribbon would be something to strive for.

I haven't been able to make it past 20th place yet. Its a current goal though. Its interesting to see what scores corresponded to what place. My highest score of 6.238 only garnered me a 31st place, but it was also out of 610 entries so I'm particularly happy with that.

To this point the average highest non placing score is 19.

My highest finish was 14th, but that was a challenge with only 67 entries. My highest PERCENTILE rating is 87%, finishing 35 out of 256 entries.

I suck :)

Sorry, Tim, you don't qualify. You've got a blue ribbon. This is a study of folks who have NEVER won a ribbon :)

6.216 6/153 97% Pride challenge

This was a fairly low scoring challenge due to much controversy regarding what 'pride' really means to people.

I've not won a ribbon. Best I seem to be able to do is lucky 13 - I have two of those, and a 14th place. My second highest score, though, was 24th at 88%, due to it being in a high-scoring challenge (Tribute), and it's still one of my favorites, both as far as my own picture and the challenge.

Best score, second best percentile to date:
6.716, 13/267, 95%
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/501/thumb/339857.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/501/thumb/339857.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Second best score:
6.537, 24/188, 88%
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/440/thumb/285196.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/440/thumb/285196.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

The other 13th place:
6.147, 13/183, 93%
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/478/thumb/319789.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/478/thumb/319789.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

And the 14th place, with the highest percentile:
6.378, 14/433, 97%
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/485/thumb/324965.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/485/thumb/324965.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

The lowest Blue was 6.419 in the Affluence challenge. Finding the lowest yellow is more difficult

Until a couple weeks ago, I was sort of in the same boat as GeneralE.
My best numerical ranking is 21 (out of 108, 81%) in the original "On the Road" challenge (June, 2002).
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/19/thumb/2376.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/19/thumb/2376.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

My best percentage ranking is 86% (41/279) in Archetecture III (last month).
My best score is the same shot with a 6.205.

Until then, I had 83% (55/325 with a 5.789) and different best score of 6.168 (185/829, 78%) (each with 1 favorite).

I have been secretly throwing out those scores when they have been winners.
