We start this year's countdown with a big tumble. BodyShop is one of the most prevalent Maddy fans on UKMIX, but has recently grown frustrated with the Madonna thread as it's becoming uncomfortable and less fun due to tensions between the fans.
(133) 99. Mr Leonix [20 points]
From one Madonna fan to another. Mr Leonix is active in several forums, most notably Chart Analysis, where he often rubs people up the wrong way. However, his posts are appreciated and he climbs into the top 100 this year. He's also a big fan of Britney Spears. One of his highlights of 2017 was being caught up in a sex tape scandal.
(111) 98. luckyONE [21 points]
Also entering the top 100 is luckyONE. This Taylor Swift fan is best known for their phenomenal music collection (check out their instagram for proof!)
(119) 97. Mr Diva [21 points] Despite taking an extended break in 2017, Mr Diva is another new entry. He was embroiled in drama during 2017 involving other forum members, but it seems to all be water under the bridge now. Mr Diva is perhaps the original drag race fan of UKMIX and often performs herself as Victoria Fox
(85) 96. NoAngel [21 points)
NoAngel is another Maddy fan, but is also looking forward to seeing Britney Spears on her upcoming tour. Also a big fan of Jennifer Lopez!
A brand new entry for greek_boy. He is active across many forums, and is a big fan of Jennifer Lopez and Justin Timberlake. He's not sure what he thinks of 'Filthy' just yet though.
(106) 94. spiritboy [22 points]
This controversial member sneaks into the top 100 this year after picking up points from 4 different members. He is perhaps best known for being a Madonna fan and a Madonna troll at the same time! This long term UKMIX member loves Margherita pizza and enjoys political discussion.
(99) 93. YouMakeMeFeel [23 points]
A nice increase for YouMakeMeFeel, formerly known as iloveamerie. However, this Amerie fan is probably more recognised as being a huge Kylie Minogue fan, and is also becoming a big Janet Jackson fan too. In fact, the Janet Jackson thread is their most active topic.
(105) 92. sonia85 [24 points]
Another one joining the top 100 this year is sonia85. She posted a lot during 2017, but activity slowed down a bit toward the end of the year. Her favourite artist is Scott Walker, for whom she hosted an epic artist survivor for, which spanned over 5 months! As long as she continues posting, I'm sure she'll rise higher up in the countdown in the future.
(144) 91. Odyssey [25 points]
And to end this positive update, it's another climber. Odyssey is an outspoken member of the forum, and is most admired in the 'Photo' thread due to his bulge and poses. He's also active in several artist threads, with Mariah Carey being his most used one
Entering the top 100 this year, graham76man is mostly found in the TV forum, whether it be reminiscing about the golden days of 'Top of The Pops' or discussing the latest series of 'Big Brother' and 'The X Factor'. He's also active in Chart Analysis.
(192) 89. Frederic [26 points]
Frederic is one of the long term users of the forum. Although he doesn't post as much these days, he has a legacy as one of the sexiest members in UKMIX history, and has been awarded several 'Sexiest Male' awards. He's most active in the music forums these days, particularly Dance and Urban
(162) 88. grooveboy [26 points]
The run of climbers continues. grooveboy is a frequent player in the FSC game, and also have a very furry cat. When it comes to music, he's a big Maddy fan!
(89) 87. Marcthemike [27 points] Remaining fairly steady this year, Marcthemike has just 474 posts to his name, one of the lowest out of anybody in the top 100. Despite that, he picks up 27 points, largely down to his participation in the Personal Charts forum
(NE) 87. beso [27 points] 99.83% of beso's 1156 posts are from Chart Analysis. In particular, he is dedicated to posting the German charts, something he has been doing for nearly a decade!
(107) 86. Robbie [29 points]
And we end this batch with another climber (that's 10 in a row!) Robbie joined the site in 2001, making him one of the longest serving members of the forum, and he is mostly active in Chart Analysis, particularly discussing the UK charts.
Last edited by biscuits on Fri Jan 19, 2018 9:53 am, edited 1 time in total.
A small rise for android this year, a user who spends most of their time in the Retro forum. He's also a fan of Roger Federer and is one of the few members to contribute to the Sports forum
(23) 84. Era [31 points]
A steep drop for Era, who was our #1 member in 2014-2015. This of course alludes to a lack of activity in 2017. For those of us who were around a few years ago, we'll remember Era for his generosity and hard work, particularly when it came to design
(155) 83. Controlfreak [31 points] Controlfreak is perhaps the biggest R&B fan on the entire forum. His favourite artist is Mya, but you'll find him in a magnitude of threads, from En Vogue to Toni Braxton.
(126) 82. zeus555 [32 points] Another one without an avatar! zeus555 posts a lot in the Retro and Chart Analysis forum, with the ABBA Sales thread being his most frequented.
(100) 81. jszmiles [32 points]
Another climber is long term member jzsmiles. He's one of the biggest dance music fans on UKMIX, but that doesn't stop him branching into other genre forums. He's also one of the most popular contributors to the 'Photo Gallery' thread due to his dedication to obtaining a muscular physique!
Due to hardly any lambs voting this year, they all suffer harsh drops. SmartIsNewSexy still remains one of the highest ranked lambs, but settles for #80. He is happy that Stella is no longer Mariah's manager and believes 'Hero' is the anthem of Planet Earth
(9) 79. MrRager [33 points]
After spending 2 years in the top 10, MrRager aka Garf plummets 70 spots. He has not been active on UKMIX for a few months now, since theArmy was banned permanently. That's a real shame as he was clearly well-liked on the forum, but he chose to banish all those who liked him for the sake of one poster (who had broken the rules). I'm sure he would be welcomed back with open arms.
(59) 78. thebigham [33 points]
thebigham recently surpassed 50,000 posts and is almost in the top 5 posters of the forum. He is one of the most avid chart analysts around here, as well as being a huge Maddy stan.
(93) 77. UKMusicLova [35 points]
Former moderator Carly rises this year. These days, she's busy commenting on various Personal Charts, as well as updating her own, and is always active in the Urban forum. She likes Cassie's new song
(76) 76. Affillate [35 points]
Remaining steady this year, Affillate hosted the 'Songs from Soundtracks' and 'Dance Anthems' countdowns in 2017. He's a big pop fan and is a regular in the Games forum.
Despite only making 186 posts since joining in Sept 2016, JahWomble impacts the top 100 this year. He is mostly a fan of Rock music, which has won him some fans on the site. He also has a popular personal chart which he updates weekly.
(80) 74. Marius [36 points]
Another rock fan to climb this year is Marius, although he likes a variety too. He's been on the forum for over a decade, but activity continues to slow down each year. Now he almost only posts in the Retro charts - his favourite song 10 years ago was 'Don't Stop The Music'.
(RE) 73. AlphaMale [38 points]
It was quite tragic when AlphaMale was completely overlooked last year, but now he's back in the top 75. He's one of the most prominent Maddy fans on UKMIX but is also up for discussing other artists and the latest news
(53) 72. Shaka [39 points]
The Mariah Carey thread is the #1 thread week in, week out, and a big part of that is down to Shaka. He is perhaps the biggest contributor to that thread, with nearly all of his 20,000 posts stemming from there (not an exaggeration). Whether it be posting the latest news or live performances or discussing her vocals and fashion choices or debating over her back catalogue, Shaka is in the thick of it. He's also dishy!
(60) 71. Magnus [39 points]
50% of Magnus' posts come from the 'Personal Charts' forum, whether it be updating his own chart or commenting on others. He also takes part in the Forum Song Contest and is a fan of pop music
A harsh drop for Rihab this year. They're a big fan of Rihanna of course, but also an avid poster in the World News and Celebrity Gossip forums. His forum activity has slowed down in the past few months, as well as some of his fans fleeing the place, which could explain the drop.
(118) 69. borderwolf [41 points]
borderwolf has been getting a lot of attention lately thanks to the 'Weekly Top Posters' chart, where he remains stable in the top 5 every week. Most of these posts come from the Chart Analysis forum, where he is always posting the latest chart and sales info for various artists.
(77) 68. SilentDreams [42 points]
SilentDreams was interviewed earlier this year and wowed many of us with his handsome good looks. Aside from that, he is a fan of various 'alternative' female artists, such as Paloma Faith, Tove Lo and Lily Allen. He'll always sleep with a blanket.
(95) 67. himc15 [45 points]
Although a lamb, this user posts in a lot of thread outside Mariah Carey. He frequently asked questions in the interviews thread and takes part in lots of games too. He also thinks Brandy is underrated as a vocalist.
(226) 66. oasisbobo [47 points]
A massive climb of 160 places for oasisbobo this year. As the name says, he's a huge fan of Oasis and is perhaps the biggest contributor to the Sports forum. He's also active in Chart Analysis too, where he enjoys discussing the sales for rock acts.
Although he posts drastically less than he used to, Undercover rockets into the top 100 this year. He's another one of the rock fans of the forum, and has a popular 'Undercover's alternatives' thread.
(69) 64. Erotica [49 points]
Erotica has been with us for 4 years now and climbs with each countdown. He's a Maddy fan and is active across several forums, most notably Games. He is not impressed with Kylie's new single and thinks it would be terrible for her to work with Taylor Swift.
(86) 63. camdwntownjohn [50 points] Another climber. camdwntownjohn is a chart analyst and rock fan, like many of the people who have appeared thus far. He also runs a popular personal chart.
(109) 62. jpguy [50 points]
After a decade on UKMIX, jpguy enters the top 100 this year (although he might have appeared years ago, idk). His favourite artist is Christina Aguilera but he's also a huge fan of K-pop. He is known for being very outspoken and so you'll find him in the News forums quite often, as well as Chart Analysis.
(66) 61. oldbloke [52 points]
oldbloke is one of the most famous chart analysts on the site thanks to his input on several threads. In fact, his 3000+ posts all come from that forum.
Spartan is the first moderator to appear on our countdown this year. He recently made a very handy TV Index so it's easy for us to find the threads for each TV show. He's most active in the TV forum, especially the 'Eastenders' thread and is currently trying to make Scattergrams happen on UKMIX. He's been posting a lot more recently, hence the surge
(73) 59. SholasBoy [59 points]
Although he doesn't post much these days, SholasBoy is one of our administrators. There was a time when he was one of the most active members of the site, but he found love. However, you'll still find him in the Dance/R&B forums, as well as running his popular personal chart. He has so much power that his name is on auto-correct - thou shall not put a C in there.
(84) 58. JimJim [60 points]
3 in a row for the moderation team. In 2017, JimJim flopped in the Top Answer Game, although it was intentional and he still managed to outperform some genuine members. He's a big fan of pop music and is the one of biggest contributors to the Tech forum
(NE) 57. Fan [62 points]
Compared to 2016, Fan is a lot more active on the forum these days, and so climbs into the top 100. He's active all over the forum and he comes from Spice World. He enjoys the show 'Chewing Gum' and is a big fan of pop music, such as Kylie Minogue and Girls Aloud
(48) 56. Jesper [63 points]
Jesper is a Beyonce fan who is active across the board. He's looking forward to Kylie's new album and also loves cheesy R&B/pop ballads
RayRay is one of the more positive members of the forum, and shares wonderful stories of his life and experiences. He's a fan of many female artists and is lucky enough to have seen the Big 5 (Maddy, Janet, Whitney, Mariah and Celine) all live in concert! He also posted a picture of his mammoth CD collection recently.
(36) 54. abi [64 points]
abi just celebrated a decade on the forum! In addition to K-pop, he is probably best known for being a huge fan of R&B, hosting the annual 'R&B Album of the Year' countdown. He also creates HQ avatars for us. Massive contributions all round from this guy!
(29) 53. Michiel [68 points]
This big drop will allude to Michiel not posting much during 2017. However, he's back on track in 2018, and recently stunned and impressed many with his long posts on racism in America and ghey dating/experiences. He has a lot to say so let's hope he sticks with us this year.
(33) 52. FreakyFlyBry [69 points]
Having spent 15 years on UKMIX, many of those years as an administrator, Bryan decided to step down last year. However, he is still a moderator in the Retro and Survivors forum. Bry is probably synonymous with survivors around here and his hard work is still very much appreciated.
(62) 51. MusicLover88 [70 points]
Just missing the top 50 (but still climbing year on year), MusicLover88 is a Madonna fan, but also a fan of music in general. Although, he certainly is not into Justin Timberlake's 'Filthy'. He much prefers 'You're Still The One' by Shania Twain and is another member looking forward to the new Kylie album!
Despite joining in 2016, it wasn't until the latter half of 2017 that this user really began interacting more on the forum, and it's resulted in this new entry straight into the top half! Despite being a Kelly Clarkson fanatic, their most active thread is 'Mariah Carey'. BB now posts all over the forum, whether it's to discuss politics or just the latest scandals in Eastenders.
(81) 49. bluecherry [70 points]
bluecherry's presence was erratic in 2017, owing heavily to starting university in September. However, his contribution to the forum, in particular his survivors, is much appreciated and he climbs into the top half. He is a fan of R&B, old and new, and is open to exploring a lot of different artists.
(28) 48. flopho [73 points]
flopho (pronounced flow-foe) drops, perhaps due to decreased activity. However, he hosted the popular UKMIX Ranking Thread last year, with the Nickelodeon Animated Series being a standout. He has a lot of sass and is active in several forums.
(39) 47. CZB [74 points] For almost 9 years, CZB has been running the 'UKmix Parade' which combines everybody's personal charts. This is a huge contribution to the site and very much appreciated by several members. He's also active in The Retro charts, where he displays quite an eclectic taste in music
(79) 46. JakeP [76 points]
JakeP is most active in 'Personal Charts', with a whopping 59% of his posts coming from that forum. He is currently counting down his top 100 of 2017 where he just announced Niall Horan's 'Flicker' at #28
BrainDamageII provides us with most of our Billboard chart information, such as weekly charts and album sales. The Billboard 200 thread is one of the most popular threads on the forum and it's largely thanks to this guy.
(91) 44. GreekGeek [78 points]
This Greek stud stans for Kylie and is perhaps her most visible fan on the forum. Kylie has just released a brand new single from her upcoming album, so expect to see a lot of excited (or disappointed) posts from this user over the next few months! FYI, he loves her new single 'Dancing'!
(155) 43. TheRealest [80 points]
Chile...it's TheRealest! This controversial member ascends into the top 50 this year, thanks to her fierce attitude, cultural solidarity and her shady putdowns. She is a big R&B fan, with her favourite artist being Mariah Carey.
(42) 42. Guru [84 points]
Preyan remains stable at #42 this year. He's another R&B fan, posting in several artist/single/album threads. His favourite singer is Deborah Cox but he's not feeling Justin Timberlake's new material at all. He recently became a vegan.
(49) 41. Grybop [86 points]
Just outside the top 40, and celebrating his 15th year on UKMIX, you'll mostly find Grybop in The Retro charts or the Forum Song Contest these days. He does venture out of those forums though, to tell us about his love for avocados for example.
Due to some of her favs leaving the board last year, there's a drop for KokoCollins. She recently had a minor meltdown when she found out the Top Answer Game was coming back, because she's on a social media diet right now, so she can't take part. Actually, it means we may not see much of Ms. Collins for a while, but come back soon pls!
(70) 39. phoenix98 [89 points]
Another user who celebrate a decade on UKMIX in 2017. Although only 6 people voted for him, they all put him in their top 6! And that's surely down to his interest in personal charts - it's always nice when someone comments on your personal chart.
(51) 38. Blondini [89 points]
Blondini is the #3 poster on the forum in terms of total posts. Most of these posts can be found in Chart Analysis, particularly when concerning the UK charts. Blondini is one of the strongest contributors when it comes to the OCC. He also has a popular personal chart and votes in the weekly retro charts
(27) 37. toni_pest [91 points]
A drop for this former top 10 star and former host. He doesn't post as much as in his heydey, but whenever he does post, it's usually something iconique, kinda like that avatar he's been sporting for years now.
(75) 36. urbanmusik [94 points]
It was a big year for urbanmusik. He crossed the 20,000 post barrier but more importantly, he was upgraded to moderator for our music forums. Of course, he's a big fan of urban musik. He's currently playing as a judge in the 'Song Collectors' game, and recently confessed that he's never been a fan of lasagne
(144) 35. TIfan [96 points] This user will aggressively defend her favourite artists, who include an array of R&B acts. In fact, she says her life has 2 chapters - before and after the death of Aaliyah
(50) 34. Hugo [100 points]
Aside from Beyonce whom he stans for in every thread, Hugo actually likes a lot of alternative artists and is very proud to be Portuguese. He is excited to watch the live action remake of 'The Lion King' in 2019
(64) 33. SummerPeur [101 points]
SummerPeur is a lot more active these days and that's sure to continue with the release of Kylie's upcoming album in April. He is responsible for an iconic post in the Grindr thread.
(19) 32. Serby [107 points]
Serby is also more active now, compared to when voting was open. He's been a popular member of the forum for years, and in 2017, he became a vegan which is fast becoming his UKMIX legacy. In 2018, we still don't know what truly went down between him and MusicRecords in 2017.
(38) 31. matthew_dixon [107 points]
The face of UKMIX for many, matthew climbs this year. He is currently running a 'Glam Rock' survivor, but that's nothing compared to his 'Ultimate No.1 Survivor' - an epic survivor containing 1367 songs which ran for almost 4 months last year!
thankfulforkelly is a fan of Kelly Clarkson or Kelly Rowland. He also likes Kacey Mugraves but thinks the new Justin Timberlake single is terrible (don't we all?!) After starting university last September, his forum activity decreased, but he seems to be gradually back in the fold now
(NE) 29. BlueScorpion [110 points]
After taking a long hiatus for most of 2016 and the first half of 2017, BlueScorpion returned last August, and has been wildly posting since. In fact, there have been several weeks since August where he's posted over 200 times a week. This is spread across the entire forum. He's a fan of the divas, with Mariah and Janet being his faves - good taste!
(11) 28. CrazyCrazy (117 points]
Former top 10 member CrazyCrazy reaches a recent all-time low this year. This is surely down to him disappearing towards the end of 2017, in a move which I think was never explained. However, he's been back recently in order to attend to his personal chart and take part in survivors. Still, it's a far cry from when he would spam the forum.
(15) 27. Colbie [119 points]
Colbie loses her position as our reigning female this year. She's one of the most positive members of the forum, often posting in the 'Grateful...' thread and 'How are you feeling?' thread. She also enjoys travelling, so posts in that thread too - she'll probably be going to Blanes in the summer.
(25) 26. Noahh [120 points]
Noahh's chart run for the past 3 years has been 26-25-26 - what kind of stability...? A fun fact - 2 people voted Noahh #1 and a further 3 people put him at #2. So that's automatically 97 points just from 5 people! Quite a few UKMIX members have met Noahh in person and have left him fantastic reviews, even better than 'Glory'.
He thinks female artists are inferior to men, he thinks rock music is the #1 genre and he thinks there's no better music than that from the 60s-80s, yet he's a Mariah Carey stan.
(32) 24. tdc2000 [125 points]
Dustin is best known for hosting the weekly Retro charts these days, to which he puts in a lot of work. He also has a popular personal chart - his weekly top 100. He's been on the site for 13 years and has spent many of those years as a moderator
(187) 23. meninme123 [127 points]
Making a huge climb this year, meninme became a moderator towards the end of 2017. He's also been on the forum for 13 years, and is now in the spotlight. He's a big fan of Maddy, but is perhaps more popular for his activity in the Entertainment forums, particularly because he can discuss British TV with other UKMIX stalwarts. He also loves the Queen.
(45) 22. navi [129 points]
navi is one of the 'alternative' members of the forum, owing to his unique music taste. He posts mostly in the Retro charts these days, where he often votes for songs I've never heard of in my life. He also takes part in several survivors, and is always open to listening to unknown songs.
(35) 21. Benny [130 points]
Despite missing the top 20 by a whisker, Benny can celebrate 20,000 posts later this year. He posts all over the forum, mostly survivors and personal charts. He's a big fan of ABBA, but likes a lot of artists. One of his favourite songs is Haddaway's 'What is Love'
