Better late than never. Our German approver and ranking frea... I mean, contributor Wizo recently went over 30,000 points. When he did so, he mentioned it meaning less for him than he would expect (well, his exact words were "I've wasted way too much time with all this crap and when I get hit by an Eastern European truck with a nearly non-existing braking system tomorrow, the achievement that I entered more MobyRanks than anyone else or that I achieved 30000 points here, doesn't mean anything"). I know those words sound bitter, but Wizo should know that his work here at MobyGames sure means a lot to us. As many of you may know, MobyRanks were a somewhat recent addition to the site (well, they're 2 years old now), and the weight of Wizo's contributions to that part of the site granted the same as more than 6,100 games with a MobyRank (that is, the weighted average of 5 ranking per game). With a database currently comprised of almost 45,000 games, that means 13% of the entire database.
We know you're tired Wizo, 'cause everyone who's done as much work as you (not only contributing, but also approving) should be. But please, keep up the excellent work. We at MobyGames thank you.
I love the MobyRanks, and I salute Wizo for his efforts. Be extra careful when crossing the street and listen out for runaway trucks. Then you can make 100,000!
Huge congrats to you Wizo!!! Keep up the great work and here's to another 30,000!!! I tell you what though, you have a great achievement there with the Mobyranks, lord knows I try everything I can to catch up, lol.
Thanks to all the volunteers who contribute to Moby! It probably feels a thankless task, but I know a lot of people who use moby to check out facts on the industry, trace people's credits, research games and that couldn't happen without you guys and gals.
On behalf of everyone who uses Moby who never gets round to saying it...
THANK YOU! :0)
Congrats to Wizo, you have really big patience.

I hope you'll just take a break and return refreshed, Wizo, you deserve it!
Cheer up, Wizo. It could be worse. You could have ALREADY been hit by a truck.
Congrats! Given your chosen path of earning points, I'd say an extra big congratulations is in order... 30,000+ mobyranks is just insane! :)
Congratulations from me too. :)
And while you are probably right with "the achievement that I entered more MobyRanks than anyone else .. doesn't mean anything", "that I achieved 30000 points here" is something completely different. 30000 points translates into a huge percentage you done for the - for our - site. So, thanks for helping out. =)
I also say, take your break - for how long it takes. But in the end, I bet you come back. ;) We will be here waiting for you. :)
Excellent job! Congratulations, and keep on the great work.
