Snail Man and I just spent seven hours putting together a chart of how many times each person has entered the jam. You can find the chart HERE.

 

  • Nearly 57% of all entrants have only entered once.
  • Only 3% of people have entered 10 or more jams
  • 422 unique people have entered the jam
  • Jools64 has a 100% win rate, with a sample of one jam!
  • Snail_Man has the most consecutive jam enters with 15 and counting

 

Top 15 Jam entrants.

 

1. Yal (16)

 

2. Snail_Man (15)

 

3. Chance (14)

 

4.

TerraFriedSheep(12)

Interesting statistics here. So I'm not in the 57%...

You're the minority. the odd one out. We're underdogs, you and I... along with 43% of the sample.

Great effort putting all those together! I'm afraid I've got a slight spanner to throw in...

I mentioned in the Jam topic the 1000th entry had occurred, however the sum of all the entries you've added up comes to 1068 (and there were only 55 entries in the latest Jam...

This lead me to double check the number of entries I have noted in the first post of this topic. The number of entries is based upon the full list of rankings at the end of each Jam (except for Jams where the full rankings weren't posted, in which case it's the number of entries added up from the lists of entries posted by the respective Jam organisers).

Firstly, it seems the number of entries I had for Jam #6 was out by one (I had 70, but checking again, there are 69 in the rankings list)... So that means I'm sorry Sirham, it seems the 1000th entry by post number is actually White Mist by The M!

 

And adding all the number of entries together after Jam #18 now gives 1040 entries in total- 28 less than your list suggests... *runs and hides*.

We counted double-entries as one, so that's probably it.

Yes. To be clear, this isn't the number of entries, it's the number of entrants. This means that people who entered two games are only counted once, and members of teams are counted individually.

It's also possible that there are some errors, seeing as the entire list was compiled and copied by hand, but I don't think we'd be off by that much.

Ah of course- sorry I don't know why it took me so long to realise your point! Good stuff, I've added a link to the post in the original topic post :thanks:

So here's a few facts to put the time of the first GMC Jam in perspective

 

At the time of the first Jam:

  • Nailog was still listed as a moderator.
  • Nocturne was called "Mark13673" and was only a lowly Reviewer.
  • The Sandbox was still YoYo's main website.
  • The YYG Forums were still alive and thriving.
  • GM8.1 was still several months away.
  • ragarnak was the only user with over 9000 posts.

 

I'll add more if I think of any

DAN'S GMC JAM LEAGUE TABLE

 

SPONSORED BY CHEQUERED INK, LOL*

 

Anyways! what I've done is created a spreadsheet showing the number of entries each user has beaten per jam, and added them together.

 

For the purposes of the table, drawing with an entry does not count as beating it.

 

How many entries have you beaten in total in your jam entering days?? FIND OUT NOW!

 

P.S if you've changed username at any point and I was unaware of it your points may be split between the two names. Let me know and I'll fix it :)

 

*Not actually joking, this took me ages when I totally should have been working :whistle:

Very cool! You forgot my Jam 7 entry though. ;)

 

I was kinda curious what would happen if the points were done on fraction of entries beaten per Jam, only for Jams entered. Check it out.

 

((I didn't see it until after I posted, but the number of entries was off by 1 so that's why 1st place isn't a 1.))

 

Everybody

And for the heck of it, only people with more than one entry
