No public API yet. You will have to screen scrape to get this info. Please see this.

iwamoto's avatar

i wonder if i’m anywhere in there, haha, let’s hope so, been working my ass of for the last 2 months

eambos's avatar

I think those of us who are 1500+ might be in it =) Jp is número uno at the moment, with gail as close second.

jlm11f's avatar

here are some who probably make the list.

jrpowell's avatar

This would be a much easier if the URL’s were http://www.fluther.com/users/1327/ instead of http://www.fluther.com/users/johnpowell/

I could scrape the users is the first was used.

eambos's avatar

Cmon PnL, I’m ahead of ben by 5 points!

;p Just messing with you. It doesnt matter.

beast's avatar

@pnL

Thanks for the list. I am making one as we speak, and only had about half those.

jlm11f's avatar

@ beast – no problem :) oh and i forgot to add “sferik” in my list.
@ eambos – sorrryyyy

beast's avatar

jlm11f's avatar

beast's avatar

scamp's avatar

I’m curious to see what you will do with the info once you have it.

iwamoto's avatar

prance around ofcourse

eambos's avatar

Its so he can see who to take out in order to become number one.

beast's avatar

beast's avatar

My bad. I missed Mirza.

iwamoto's avatar

Andrew is the boss, he doesn’t count…

jlm11f's avatar

of course he counts! its not like he has been artificially raising his fluther score .

iwamoto's avatar

we’ll never know….

playthebanjo's avatar

maybe he will tell us?

iwamoto's avatar

no, and if he did, he’d have to kill you, you know how he is…

PupnTaco's avatar

Top 15! What a proud moment. :)

jlm11f's avatar

congrats PnT :)

El_Cadejo's avatar

@beast forgot me :( ..... wait if im put in there that would bump out PupnTaco sorry to take away your moment. :(

Still top 20 though ;)

iwamoto's avatar

damn you jackson, how come you have more points than me? ... i demand a recount!!!

eambos's avatar

I say battle royale for the top 15.

Iwa better not use any kamikaze attacks on me.

iwamoto's avatar

Iwamoto Tetsuzō actually instructed kamikaze pilots, like wiki tells us

Iwamoto served in home defense and trained kamikaze pilots

but he was way too good to be one himself

El_Cadejo's avatar

well iwa i have more points because im clearly twice as awesome :P

iwamoto's avatar

because you’ve got zombie stats on GTA4 ? well, i must say, vladimir is clearly an advantage you have over me….

Randy's avatar

Im working my way up there. =)

beast's avatar

I apologize to you, uberbatman

thebeadholder's avatar

You left out Marina there in your top 30.

beast's avatar

Oh dear, I did. I also forgot nikipedia.

Randy's avatar

Haha, this seems like a tough one to acomplish. On the other hand, yay! I’m in the top thirty! =)

beast's avatar

…and buster

gailcalled's avatar

Why are so many people so invested in this?

TheHaight's avatar

Top 30? I’m in it? Yay!

thebeadholder's avatar

They all want to “have their name in lights” (or should I say numbers)! We want to know who rules the collective.
@beast: stay a while and it becomes very apparent.

Randy's avatar

@gail- anytime people are handing something out, people want the most. I can remember when I first came here. I was very impressed when someone with lots of lurve answered my questions.

gailcalled's avatar

And the ruler of the collective means what? Eternal life, no hair loss, a trip to the moon on gossamer wings?

playthebanjo's avatar

eternal hair loss on moon wings.

gailcalled's avatar

@Banjo: Just one of those things, I guess.

playthebanjo's avatar

I thought I saw something about the king jelly getting free mcdonald’s coupons.

Randy's avatar

Nothing in the grand scheme of things. If you’ll notice though, anytime questions are asked about favorite flutherites, its always the regulars who have a very high amount of lurve. To me, that says that people take more notice to users who have more lurve. Although I look at all answers to questions I pay more attention to the “regular’s” answers. Maybe thats just me, but I mean, who doesnt want to be someones favorite?

beast's avatar

About what I was going to do with this list; Once I can confirm the top 32 or so, I can go on with the fun.

eambos's avatar

Yes! Locked in top 30! This is one of the greatest moments of my life.

You like me! You really like me!

thebeadholder's avatar

@gail: oh you are right. here are some links to prove that being at the top doesn’t mean a darn thing. Like this and this. I’m sorry, I forgot to put the ~ at the end of my answer. Also, I agree with Randy.

thebeadholder's avatar

@banjo: thanks for always having my back ;-)

bulbatron9's avatar

Nice!

I’ll have to admit, it makes me feel special!

wildflower's avatar

Damn! That makes it look like I don’t have a life!...........which is correct, but that’s besides the point!

Trustinglife's avatar

I was amazed, looking at PnL’s jpg, that Wildflower, Shilolo, Marina, and Allie, have all made Top 30 while they’ve only been on Fluther for less than 3 months! Wow – that’s a lot of lurve for great Fluthering!

wildflower's avatar

You can find a lot of interesting (and/or worrying) information with this cool toy that paulc made

Okay, here is the final 32 that I need for the game. Please tell me if I forgot anyone.

wildflower's avatar

I actually don’t want to encourage this ranking (it just makes me look too pathetic!), but I’m sure you’re missing a few lurve high-scorers like: richardhenry, hearkat, squirbel and paulc…...there might be more.

beast's avatar

and brownlemur

Babo's avatar

And the point of this is…?

wildflower's avatar

@babo
I think it’s to embarrass those of us that spend too much time on here….

Babo's avatar

Oh! Um, okay.

eambos's avatar

Aww… I was knocked out of the top 32 :(

playthebanjo's avatar

Originally wasn’t it supposed to be the top 50?

beast's avatar

I changed it to 32. playthebanjo, you were in there. The reason I changed it to 32 will be revealed later today. I want to do it (I’ll ask it in a new question) when most people are on. Does anyone know about what time that is?

wildflower's avatar

While I’m sleeping, I think – there’s always like 20-odd alerts when I check in the morning. So that would be in about 8–10 hours from now?

playthebanjo's avatar

it seems like it varies. some days it’s a lot around 10 pm EST, some not so much

gailcalled's avatar

@Wild: I did wonder whether certain people on this list ever slept.

wildflower's avatar

not as much as I probably should…

paulc's avatar

@beast, if you plug your list (separated by spaces) into my app (sorry, doesn’t work on iPhone) you can see some interesting things with the numbers. Not trying to plug myself, I just figured this would be relevant. It’ll display a lot of users so they might not all fit on the screen properly.

Here’s the list “spacified” for your convenience:

Johnpowell Gailcalled Kevbo Delirium Wildflower sndfreQ Scamp uberbatman Riser Mirza Sferik Peedub Bublbatron9 robmandu Andrew AstroChuck Pupntaco syz Shilolo Randy TheHaight Soundedfury Susanc Allie ezraglenn Eambos Ben playthebanjo judochop Iwamoto

beast's avatar

@paulc

Yes, that’s how I came up with the list, by using your application. Thanks a lot for it. I would’ve been lost without it.

beast's avatar

Thanks for the suggestions, wildflower & playthebanjo. I’ll post it around 8:30–9 EST.

mzgator's avatar

What about Gooch?

Babo's avatar

Whatever happened with this?

beast's avatar

I posted the question, and for some reason, Fluther moderators took it down.

scamp's avatar

So what’s the big mystery? Babo and I want to know! LOL!

TheHaight's avatar

Scamp & Babo; he wanted to do a competition on who is the “ultimate Flutherite”. Got taken down because to many complaints.

scamp's avatar

Thanks for explaining it. I can see why there were complaints. We are a collective, so each one of us is the “ultimate Flutherite”. That’s part of what makes this place so wonderful. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

gailcalled's avatar

I agree. There are some peculiar Claques at work, too. Really very silly.

playthebanjo's avatar

what’s a claque? Is it the past tense of a clique? Or is it members of a clique that always talk? CLAQUE CLAQUE

scamp's avatar

Not a good idea. We don’t need sycophants!

playthebanjo's avatar

found the definition

I like mine better : )

gailcalled's avatar

@Play: ah, but you now have another word to play with.

breedmitch's avatar

Removed by me

gailcalled's avatar

Claque, in the primary meaning was a group paid to applaud or cheer, usually at the opera or theater for a performer who was losing his/her edge.

Sycophants volunteer to be hrrm toadies or suck-ups. Usually guys like Charles II, Henry VIII or Louis XIV was surrounded by sycophants.

gailcalled's avatar

@Play; feel free to redefine any word that strikes your fancy. Chaos already rules.

gailcalled's avatar

Let me mention also cabal – a secret political clique or faction.

playthebanjo's avatar

But how do they wrap the cabal onto the spool? Language sure is confusing!

gailcalled's avatar

edit: 4 answers ago; guys were.

@Play: I agree. I sometimes wonder how we communicate at all. Often I would find it so much clearer to poke someone with a spoon, as I was wont to do as a kid. (Love that wont).

wildflower's avatar

See I don’t think Beast’s idea was all together bad…..some sort of Fluther tournament could be fun (I’d sign up for the silly or weird discipline). As it was when posted, it didn’t have much of an objective.

playthebanjo's avatar

I still vote for the best response…one liner? To be voted on by GA’s

iwamoto's avatar

@wildflower, i bet i’d win in the perverted discipline

wildflower's avatar

I’m not taking that bet!

iwamoto's avatar

i understand, i’m already assured of victory anyway, so i’d raise the stakes into the pervertedness…

playthebanjo's avatar

you stick with flying the helicopter and leave the rest to the adults.~

iwamoto's avatar

but….the helicopter shows my passing into adulthood….after all, to be a real man you have to be unfrendly to women.~

wildflower's avatar

No. That makes you a real woman…..

playthebanjo's avatar

well said. Wasn’t there something in the last couple of days about women being catty?

wait- how exactly does a woman perform the helicopter?
