Ahhhh, order has been restored to the universe, and my plan worked flawlessly. Better get to work @gideonfrost

Not surprising he was #1. @cowboydann IS a major player in the cowboy scene, after all.

I think some of you need to worry about something other than your # on the leaderboard. If being #1 is the height of your day/week, you may want to revaluate yourself.

congratulations on the achievement

They're just haters. Nicely played, Cowboy Dan.

Whoo!!!!!! How bout those cowboydans!!!!

@cowboydann:

Ah well, not sure if it would have been more cool or scary if you were camping with my friend this weekend...

Either way, enjoy. Or if you're already incommunicado: hope you enjoyed.

@cowboydann: sorry, was painting our old house -- still hasn't sold. GRRR!

So, it looks like the Dictator has been dethroned at last! Of course, he pulled a clever move by posting a question about it -- and will most likely be back at the top this time tomorrow.

Congrats @lichme for doing just that (who wants to place bets?).

:)

@cowboydann: Np, hope you enjoyed it. I wanted to see how long I could ignore the meters before they got mad, so I decided to not ask a question and see how long it would take. Yesterday I was bouncing between 3rd and 5th top questioner. After 7 days of not posting, I went down to 88%, allowing you to take over. (I also noticed you had not asked one in 7 days, which is probably why you have dropped as well). Now, with the awesome turnout of your supporters, I shall skyrocket my way back up! At least that is my plan.

@caffeine_dude had me pegged when he asked if upvoting this question would put me back at #1.

@lichme: I told you it would be short lived :P thanks a lot for the thread though, it was very nice of you to do

vote-for3vote-against

Congrats, @cowboydann

One day, I'll be dedicated enough to make it.

@baqui63: sounds fun but it's just the girl and I and a tent. No boats.

@Teenracer6: Thanks a lot and enjoy the extra QP's while you can- ill be back on Monday and we'll be able to team up in again- rockin woot proper with the ol' one-two cnet/youtube review punch :P

As for everyone else thank you so much for all your nice (and not so nice ;) words. You all crack me up and it's nice to have all the time and effort recognized. Thanks all so much <3 you're all wonderful people

sorry for any typos this was made from my mobile phone.

@cowboydann: 'scuse me sir, shouldn't you step aside and let women and children be first?

;)
Congratulations!

vote-for4vote-against

@cowboydann:

Hmmm... a question: does your camping trip involve a pair of boats, one a rental and the other a recent purchase, made by you and three other guys?

If so, it is amazing how small a world it really is.

vote-for5vote-against

Woot should send e-mails to daily #1-ers.

Congrats @cowboydann!

vote-for6vote-against

I was #1 once... tis' a fleeting thing.

vote-for4vote-against

YAY! (I made it up to 4th once last summer and remember how excited I was by that.)

vote-for6vote-against

Make sure you capture the moment with a screencap. I made it all the way up to #8 somehow and by the time I took a screencap of the leaderboard, I was already down one spot to #9. It still looks pretty good on the T-shirt I had made to commemorate the occasion, though. Just kidding, it was actually a coffee mug. ;)

@cowboydann \m/ You rock! Congratulations bud

@lichme: though you're my sworn nemesis, i still root for you. although, i sometimes shake my fist and yell (http://bit.ly/JTKX3H)!

vote-for7vote-against

@cowboydann: I know why. I have exactly 3 people that are rooting for me, the rest are happy to see me fall.

vote-for8vote-against

@pemberducky: How did I miss that one? must have been typing up my post
Love? :D :D It's nice to be loved.

@barnabee: There are always haters on threads like these. Can't tell you why- there just are.

vote-for9vote-against

@cowboydann makes my <3 flutter! Then it spits out black smoke and dies. Congrats Cowboy, sooo proud of you!!! And, sorry, can't make it to Dann Chat Tonight. You know I would love to come and be quiet while chatting on the side with @anotherhiggins :(

@cowboydann: have fun and beware the snipes! Load up on ghost stories for there and here next Wednesday.

@gideonfrost: I said I would let somebody else takeover, I didn't say for how long

vote-for10vote-against

And here I was struggling so hard to get to number 2 so we could have an all Des Moines leadership.

vote-for9vote-against

Haha glad I saw this, reminded me I needed to do something..thanks lichme :D

@cowboydann I'll be sending out that "piece" of those "things" before the end up the week. So it should be "there" before "then." If you "know" what I "mean."

You're pretty much down the street though, so it should get there in a day or "two."

vote-for11vote-against

@cowboydann: Congratulations!
If I upvote this question will it put lichme back at #1?

Do not forget to take the picture (screen shot).

vote-for10vote-against

@cowboydann: I don't get it. Why would anyone want to downvote this question? Anyway, congrats cowboydann. Way to go! And @lichme, when you get back up to the top, I'll volunteer to hold the ladder to help keep it steady.

Now, I apologize for going off topic, but I'd like to post the following message:

@agingdragqueen,
I stole this thread to thank you:
Calendar arrived!

(Think maybe I should go back to Haiku school.)

@cowboydann: When the time is right, I will reveal the secrets...

vote-for51vote-against

haha thanks @carl669 and @gmwhit for letting me know this thread existed. Unfortunately my time at top will be very short lived, I'm leaving to go camping for 5 days (and won't be at woot chat tonight, play nice while I'm gone, handing over the keys to @psaux tonight, I hope he doesn't go mad with power) This is indeed a good day, 200th Quality Post, #1 on leaderboard and I get a 4 day weekend.

Thanks @lichme you're pretty cool dude, and a fantastic character. Where the heck is @capguncowboy? we need another weekend of cowboy deals! (Please let there never be another weekend of cowboy deals, once was enough :P)

My brother also made a for . It's to all the haters that will downvote this question.

vote-for25vote-against

Congratulations and I love you.

@gmwhit: Because victory doesn't taste as good when it is given up freely. Now he'll be forever in my debt.

vote-for7vote-against

@lichme: LOL Was just coming here to say the same thing - both #1 congrats & the Weds. IRC chat. Nice of you to offer congrats, too!

Wondering why he isn't crowing?? Maybe it's the old "SBD" (silent, but deadly) approach. Where the devil are you @cowboydann? @capguncowboy's movin' up, too. ;-)

vote-for9vote-against

Glad to see the leadership change over was free from strife.

vote-for30vote-against

It should be noted from this post that it was fully my intention to allow the takeover to happen.

"You have no idea how hard it is for me to stay up there, I have a fear of heights. In all reality, I might just let somebody takeover soon."
