When it comes to contributing some people specialize in a certain kind of item. Some people contribute mainly cover scans, others rather contribute screenshots, others prefer to revise descriptions and so on. Our German approver Wizo is a MobyRank specialist. When it comes to it, he's literally second to none, as almost half of his recently reached 20,000 points come from MobyRanking. Congratulations, Wizo!
18206 Moby Rank submissions so far (among others contributions) kinda makes you feel dizzy, no? Well done Wizo!
Herein find Wizo's explanation of his Moby Rank strategy, which I still find suspicious, and I think he has a secret crew working for him :)

lol that's hot Fräulein-terrorist Brigitte Mohnhaupt, member of left-wing nutjob group Red Army Faction.
Like many games, she hasn't aged that well.
How embarrassing, I thought it was Avril Lavigne (sized down!).
Ha ! I thought that too !
I tried to get points using MobyRanks as well soon after it was added to the site. After adding 273 GameSpot reviews it had become very tedious (add, next, add, next, etc. etc) so I stoped and started doing something that was a bit more interesting like adding games. Well done Wizo for keeping it up (over 18,000 wow).

Contributing MobyRanks is such monotonous and boring work, I amazed how someone could add 18219 of them. For sure, Wizo doing this even when while sleeping.
Theoratically this would be possible. If a website has a reliable pattern in their reviews, you could create a script-controlled bot that adds the MobyRanks fully automatically.
It's this strange passion for statistics that pushes me to submit or approve them, though I don't have that much time for the latter any more. But 18000 MobyRanks aren't that much. There is a lot of potential in that area. I still have about 100 issues of German magazines to add and currently there are more than 4500 URLs in my MobyRank bookmark file. These strange Germans, huh?
And yes, my avatar doesn't show Avril Lavigne, it's Miss Mohnhaupt, the best example for the beauty of female punks, anarchists, communists and left-wing terrorists. Venceremos!
Plenty of kids would probably describe Avril Lavigne that way too....
Bloody hell, that was fast! Now that's what I call German efficiency.
Makes anyone who has 100 points or so look bad, eh? :p

Hey, that was mean. I may be not that efficient, but I don't look bad. But never mind. Congrats to Wizo.
Oooh....hit right on the target without looking. Sorry mate.
P.S. contribute more...1,000 points does wonders to your nerd moral
Congratulations, man. At least you weren't forgotten when you have reached a milestone, like what happened to me.
Aw man, I'm sorry again! I mean, it isn't as if I am the official milestone newscaster around, but it seems people expect that from me since I've been doing it for some time now. As I said earlier, I may have overlooked your milestone, but I remember checking for any other contributors with similar scores and only seeing Oliver there.
Anyway, you won't be forgotten on your 40,000, at least not by me, I promise.
Edit: it feels just like when you forget someone's birthday. =(
Congrats Wizo! Nice job and keep up the good work.
