Seemed like the rating has quickened of late so tweaked the stats page to include the total # of ratings each day, here's the result:

So yes, the rating has been accelerating - on top of the top 8 continuing their hard work, a few others have been adding to the workload (check out Mark R's hockey stick!) So I've expanded the header leaderboard and stats page to include the top 11 raters:

Kudos all, we should cross the halfway mark within the next day!

Holy crap.  I'm glad you expanded it, because Mark is about to knock me out of 8th place!

Does that mean you're going to deviate from the metronomic 50 ratings per day?

No.  The only thing I have going for me is consistency, damnit! :-)

Plus now I've got to work on that Douglass & Knox comment.

All the hares will have tired themselves out before we get to 24,000 ratings, meanwhile the metronomic turtle will plod right past them :-)

And you should win the "smallest uncertainty in the rating trend line" award.

Well, I'm glad you expanded the leaderboard, because with Mark's astounding effort, the only way I was going to make the top 8 was to beat not only Dana but someone else as well.  :-)

As I write, there are only 357 papers that haven't had at least one rating yet.  Not bad!
