DPC has turned five years old. Who has been here the longest without reaching the top five in a challenge?

Me:
952 day without a top five finish

Who else?

To help with day here is a link to a Julian date calender.

1,662 days without a top 5, top 10, top 20....

EDIT - I did have a 14th out of 67 in the first free study....

I think GeneralE may take that dubious honour?
01/19/2007 05:39:55 PM · #5
this date calculator might help people figure it out.

809 days without a serious injury! ...er, I mean without a serious finish in a challenge.

And I used this for calculating duration.

edit: I am still scratching my head at the Julian date calendar...

I heard a rumor that he doesn't even exist - he's one of Langdon's ghost accounts.

As 21_F.gif BeeCee posted, Drew may win for absolute time, but 1031.gif GeneralE has to take top honors with 405 challenges entered over 1742 days, and his highest placing is 13th.

Tell me again, what is the definition of insanity? ;-)

Okay Art, there are 4 people in that post you quoted; kirbic, me, Drew, and GeneralE. I assume the insanity comment refers to GeneralE, but I just wanna be sure! :P

And Drew HAS won a ribbon. But I was going on ones who were actually active. It's kinda hard to ribbon without entering! (tho' I imagine Drew or Langdon could if they really wanted to ;) )

I should hope so!

I'm glad someone already did the research, 'cause I was just about to post that I didn't have a top-20 finish -- when did I get 13th? Interestingly, I also signed up on the 13th ...

Well, with only 22 entries in the challenge, the odds of a top-20 finish were rather higher than usual ... : ) Thanks for looking that up!

Whatever happened to that postcard project, anyway? With something like VistaPrint, the cost is not unreasonable (about $35 for 100) -- maybe people could download the image and order their own supply, or groups could order together for better pricing.

If you use that link, you can get 25% off your first order.

1702 Days.
01/19/2007 10:35:22 PM · #23
1180 days without... even a top 20.

best placement 33/200
01/19/2007 10:44:16 PM · #24
I don't know how y'all are counting the days, but if we're talking about active accounts, I bet it's 21.gif agrimace, who joined DPC on Feb 11, 2002, and has me beat by five days. His best is 56/122; mine is 21/108.
01/19/2007 10:49:02 PM · #25
Oh yeah, I was forgetting that council was listed before regular members, not by date joined. I guess you're right! (technically..)

I still vote for GeneralE, cuz he's got sooooo many entries :D
