Turtle Talk Tallies: Biannual comments and recs report (2014 - Q1 & Q2)

New, 18 comments

Jake Nazar, SpinningGamera, & Daniel Hamilton take home the half-year commenting awards.

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

I thought it would be fun to give everyone an opportunity to see how they are doing with their commenting statistics for the first half of the year. Not surprisingly, SpinningGamera killed the Rec/Comment ratio category as well as nearly doubling the individual in second place in Total Recs. Jake Nazar came in with almost 400 more comments than the person in second. Finally, Daniel Hamilton narrowly edged out Molly Geary, receiving the Most Rec'd Comment Award.

In an effort to keep this article from being impossibly tiresome, I created cutoffs for each category. If you would like to know your personal statistics, let me know in the comments and I will gladly share them with you.

Anyway, here is this biannual installment of Turtle Talk Tallies.
