It's the Christmas week chart and the last chart of 2017 - for the 15th time, here are your Weekly Top Posters!
Staying very steady week on week, the total number of posters that signed in to access their UKMIX accounts stood at 709
(+0.4%) this week.
In a shocking turn of events, our impact rating
drops below the magic 50.0% mark for the first time since week 6 (when it stood at 49.5%). This week, the impact rating stands at a depressing 47.2%
- though this isn't the lowest rating we've seen thus far (that would be week 4 @ 42.3%), it does make for disappointing reading! I suppose this is just the ugly side of Christmas! Driving that depressing impact rating was a shockingly low figure for the total number of posters that made at least one post
- that figure stood at 335 this week, the lowest we've ever seen
(previous low was 345, achieved in week 1).
And completing a trio of bad stats, we have our total posts figure
(which declined for the 2nd consecutive week), which falls to 6,693
What's that, a brand new #1 - someone who's not previously topped the chart?! Since we started this countdown 15 weeks ago, only 3 names have topped the chart - Nippian93 (a record 9 times), MusicRecords (4 times) and BlueScorpion (1 time). This week, that number swells to 4 as heppolo
joins those illustrious ranks; he ranks #1 with 360 posts made - that is the 5th highest weekly posts figure we've seen thus far and it takes heppolo's 15 weekly tally to 2,581 posts.
Trailing #2 with a post count declining ever so slightly by 2.3% is Nippian93
- that weekly post count stands at 332 posts this week. Incredibly, this is the 14th week (out of 15 total) that Nippian93 has topped the 300 posts mark. His 15 weekly tally stands at a phenomenal 4,947 - just 53 posts shy of becoming our first Diamond certified poster.
At #3 this week - and breaking the record once again for the longest time spent at a single ranking position, as he clocks up his 10th week at #3 - is our very favourite charts legend borderwolf
, having made 283 posts this week. This week, he also manages to gain a new certification, becoming only the 2nd poster to score 4x Platinum (with 4,248 posts made).
At #4 for the 3rd time (and spending a 10th consecutive week inside the top 10) is Benjamin
with 209 posts made (a decline of 5.0% week on week). He remains the top ranked moderator for the 3rd consecutive week and his 15 weekly tally stands at 2,362 posts.
Closing out the top 5 and ranking #5 for the second consecutive week is Australia's favourite son SummerPeur
boosting his post count by 12.4% to 208 posts. SummerPeur has had a pretty awesome few weeks after a quiet first few weeks and at his current posting rate, he might make it to Platinum next week (with a 15 weekly tally of 826 posts)!
And a special mention must go this week to kingofskiffle
, who increases his post count by 17,800% - I'm still not convinced by the maths if I'm being honest.
(he made 1 post last week, he made 179 posts this week). Either way, huge numbers - congratulations Lonnie!Top 10 Ranked Moderators#1
