Been at 39 one time, but that place is currently 107 checks away, so it might take a while to get there, especially since he (tourdesb) is active as well.

2019 for me can be summarized with just a few rank-related events, most of them not of my own doing:

- In the first few days of 2019 I passed rkzk, bringing me to 18th place
- In mid-May thoughtrepellent (AKA Cobac AKA Fori) went dark, bumping me to 17th place
- At mid-year I passed winds and reached my highest ranking to date, 16th place
- Right around Halloween thoughtrepellent returned from the dark and knocked me down to 17th place
- In mid-November winds suddenly came to life after nearly three years of inactivity, checking hundreds of titles and kicking me back to 18th place, my current position

So in the end I've moved up one place in 2019. Here's a year-by-year breakdown for me:

Year # checks gained # official checks gained Pos. at start of year Pos. at end of year Max. Pos. Min. Pos. Range Avg. Rank (polled weekly)
2012~700~600704970482255.5
20131198968493050282240.7
201493476530223122925.3
201574289222212421323.0
201662344221212219320.9
201782258521202220220.9
201877855020192318520.0
201976959419181916317.2


Looking at the last five years (to cherry-pick some stats by using the end-of-year numbers), I've gone from #22 to #18 by adding 3062 official checks or, in other words, on average I needed 765.5 official checks for each rank I advanced (using the average rank column it's a slightly more reasonable 527.9). The front page is not for the faint of heart! As for next year, if blueboybob and Spocksbrain continue checking the way they have been, they'll pass me easily, while there are two or three ahead of me that have been taking it easy of late, so all in all I think I should be able to advance one or two positions in 2020, with a bit more turbulence than I had this year.

2018 updateShow
2018 was the roller coaster I was expecting it to be, with the largest range of rankings I've seen since 2014. It's also the first time since 2015 I've dropped to 23rd place, a result of the noir list adjustments made earlier in the year. It's no surprise that Xianjiro flew past me in July and never looked back. Jeroen0 going dark and Burneyfan returning (welcome back!) were bigger surprises, but they canceled each other out in terms of most people's rankings, including my own. JamesCameronScholar's meteoric rise in June was also a surprise, as was 3rd's sudden departure in December. Despite all these events, I wound up advancing one place in the rankings, though, so I can't complain.

Here's a year-by-year breakdown for me:

Year # checks gained # official checks gained Pos. at start of year Pos. at end of year Max. Pos. Min. Pos. Range Avg. Rank (polled 1/week)
2012~700~600704970482255.5
20131198968493050282240.7
201493476530223122925.3
201574289222212421323.0
201662344221212219320.9
201782258521202220220.9
201877855020192318520.0


(2015 looks a little funny in that my number of official checks exceeds my total number of checks, but this is because of the adoption of the TSZDT list, which netted me 228 new official checks)

It looks like 2019 will be a little calmer than 2018, with just a couple of people making a push for the front page and not a lot of activity at the bottom of the front page currently. There are a few users ahead of me that have slowed their checking or become inactive, so I predict I'll advance one or two spots by the end of 2019.

2017 updateShow
2017 didn't quite go as I expected - the updates to the TSPDT and Brief Encounters lists along with the newly adopted lists didn't work in my favour, and Gremlo shot up about 80 checks relative to me in February. As a result, we spent the rest of the year neck and neck (in May he passed me for a day or two, but otherwise I maintained my lead). Julliette appeared from out of nowhere, passing me in March and offsetting the rank bump I had in February when Robot2xl went dark. And, in the last couple of weeks, I passed Laydback, kicking me up from 21 to 20 in the rankings.

Here's a year-by-year breakdown for me:

Year # checks gained # official checks gained Pos. at start of year Pos. at end of year Max. Pos. Min. Pos. Range Avg. Rank (polled 1/week)
2012~700~600704970482255.5
20131198968493050282240.7
201493476530223122925.3
201574289222212421323.0
201662344221212219320.9
201782258521202220220.9


(2015 looks a little funny in that my number of official checks exceeds my total number of checks, but this is because of the adoption of the TSZDT list, which netted me 228 new official checks)

Compared to 2016 and 2017, 2018 will be a veritable roller coaster for me. With the More Noirs update I'll fall two or three spots in the rankings, back behind Laydback, Gremlo and possibly Johnlocke (with Gremlo's advancement I'll be the 2nd ranked Canadian in the list for the foreseeable future). And I have a feeling xianjiro will leave me in the dirt this year at the rate he's checking (he's a machine!). But I'll likely regain two or three spots as well over the course of the year from some members that have slowed down of late, so I'll probably wind up next year right around the rank I start it with.
2016 updateShow
2016 was a pretty nasty year for me, with half my weekends taken up by at least one day in the lab on average, but still managed 442 new official checks (including 52 from the addition of new lists early in the year). That wasn't enough to advance in the rankings; I started the year tied at 21st with Swoon, and finish this year still in 21st. If you consider I was 95 checks from 20th place then and 119 now, I'm actually slipping a bit! Not much activity during the year, dropping as low as 20th place (or 19th briefly if you count the small window in which Allison went dark in July/August) and as high as 22nd.

Here's a year-by-year breakdown for me:

Year # checks gained Pos. at start of year Pos. at end of year Max. Pos. Min. Pos. Range
2012~6007049704822
20139684930502822
2014765302231229
2015892222124213
2016442212122193


I predict 2017 will be more of the same, with little chance of catching 1SO (this will be the first year we haven't traded positions at least once since 2013!) and not a lot of pressure of being caught, for now at least. It's forever 21 for me, I think.

Here's my ranking in the beginning of the year. I'm not actively lowering it, but my TSPDT platinum project (little over 200 checks) and my fondness of shorts might contribute to it somewhat anyway. tehe

Shorts are your friend

#500 on this list is only 6 minutes long, so, you could get to under 4000 in less than a couple days, if you really wanted to.

As a point of reference, watching 500 off that list, will put you around 2500, a vast majority of the real short ones are available on Youtube.

Some pretty crazy ranking shifts in the latest update.

The result of the box office lists expanding to 1000?

I'm up two spots myself.
