I am presenting this Top Commenter of the Last 6 Years award to a group of unbelievable persons. In the last 6 years, my readers are with me and created this great community to talk about important things in life, setting a bridge between China and the rest of the world.

These people wrote most comments in the last 6 years, since Sept 11, 2002, to Sept 10, 2008. The first line of the list is the name of the commenter, and the number behind it are the number of comments this person posted on this blog in the last 6 years.

As you may already realize, two or more different users may use the same name, I have a small feature that use different color to represent different email addresses (without disclosing the email addresses) for the same name. Click the name to see their comments to find it out. I ever thought about whether I should use email address to sort and count, and then map it back to display name. Finally, I think, since the blog is all about share and contribution, it does not matter to have many people rewarded under the same nick name. In the case of my blog, most of the comments of the winning nickname are posted by the same person.

When I celebrated my 6 years of blogging, I said I do want to do something special for this community. There is at least one thing I can do – to get a small award to my readers who contributed so much to this blog to make the conversation going, so it is not a one way street. For many topics that I don’t have enough knowledge on, I just started the thread, and my passionate readers completed the rest. What is wonderful.

Congratulations for this “Top Commenter of 6 Years” Award.

  1. Aha, it’s interesting. what a lovely image! I’m expecting to be awarded this golden medal specially designed by Jianshuo one day.

  2. can’t believe i am on any top 100 list!

  3. Hoho – congratulations to the winners… I feel special making the Top 5!!!

  4. Thanks everyone for your comments, and AussiePB, you are definitely in the top 5, and you just joined the community in the later half of the journey, which makes the number even more impressive.

  5. Also, for the icon, I designed it 5 years ago in May of 2003 using Microsoft Word.

  6. Much regret we cannot meet each other in person, I was in Shanghai for a week and left on 14 Sept., you took UA858 for SFO at 1PM and I took AC026 for YVR at 4PM, yes, it is a small world, we are so close, yet so far apart.

  7. It seems that I should post my schedule on to the website so we can find time to meet with other somewhere, even at the airport.

    BTW, I am flying back from Seattle to San Francisco on Sept 22, via UA1203, and getting back to China via UA857 the same day.

  8. Oh crap ! I lost to AussiePB !

    Thank you JS for keeping this place open for so long.

    I think it is the interesting subjects you brought up that keeps us coming back.

    Good Job !

  9. I admire your writing willpower for six years like one day very much.

  10. I am surprised that I am on the list, too.

    Thanks Jian Shuo, your blog really helps me surviving in Shanghai.

  11. Wow! This is totally making me smile from ear to ear :-D

    I had no idea I was so far up there. Even though I’ve been away from my computer for the past three weeks, (I can really relate to your report of that long travel time!) I’ve been thinking about you, and was eager to check back and catch up with your blog as soon as possible.

    Glad you had another good trip to the US. Once my head gets back into the correct time zone, I will become a “regular” here again.

    Thanks for the “award”, Jian Shuo. If I had a blog of my own, I would absolutely be displaying it proudly on my sidebar.

    Big hugs to you and your good family…

  12. pretty cool that you have built such a tight knit group on the internet. I’m sure posting your list will invite more members to be active.

  13. I have been surfing on-line more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is lovely value sufficient for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the net might be a lot more useful than ever before.
