    Default Tracking global number of thanks

    Since the thanks feature was implemented a while back now, I was curious on a number of questions:

    1. Who has the most thanks as an individual?
    2. How many total thanks have been given out?
    In all these papers we see a love of honest work, an aversion to shams, a caution in the enunciation of conclusions, a distrust of rash generalizations and speculations based on uncertain premises. He was never anxious to add one more guess on doubtful matters in the hope of hitting the truth, or what might pass as such for a time, but was always ready to take infinite pains in the most careful testing of every theory. With these qualities was united a modesty which forbade the pushing of his own claims and desired no reputation except the unsought tribute of competent judges.

    @TinCow

    That is a bit incorrect. The individual totals can be seen on the profile.
    However, there is no spread sheet of who has the most and the like.

    The individual totals are displayed, but not the stats the OP requested. A person could deduce the results from those if they manually checked the stats on all 26,439 member accounts, but such work is probably so time consuming that the result would be out of date before it was even calculated. The requested stats could probably be pulled with a direct SQL query, so if you'd like that done you should bug the TAs relentlessly until they give you what you want.

    There have been 17,593 thanks given out for 10885 posts.

    The most thanked member is @Major Robert Dump with 403 posts thanked 743 times, narrowly pipping @JMRC (225/739) and @Lemur (407/708).

    @Maltz has the most thanked posts, with 441 posts being thanked 519 times (it's then @Lemur and @Major Robert Dump).

    @Gelatinous Cube is our top thanker by a country mile, giving out 1817 thanks. That's more than twice his nearest rival.

    LOL. I knew GC​ was the biggest thanker. He is such a slut with those.
    In all these papers we see a love of honest work, an aversion to shams, a caution in the enunciation of conclusions, a distrust of rash generalizations and speculations based on uncertain premises. He was never anxious to add one more guess on doubtful matters in the hope of hitting the truth, or what might pass as such for a time, but was always ready to take infinite pains in the most careful testing of every theory. With these qualities was united a modesty which forbade the pushing of his own claims and desired no reputation except the unsought tribute of competent judges.

    I don't want to add on to the above statement because I have already expressed my approval with a thanks.

    I'm pretty sure 75-80% of my thanks come from Gelatinous Cube.
