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.

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

I don't know how y'all are counting the days, but if we're talking about active accounts, I bet it's ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) .

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
