I took this from Google's cached version of the site, as lugnet currently seems to be down

Since lugnet is back up for a bit...

Code:
'm said to be a prolific parts author, so I wanted to verify the truth
behind... A few find in files, some Excel work and a bit of manual cleaning
gives the result below. This was done on the full collection of official LDraw
parts + unofficial ones up to march 2011.

Have fun!

Re: Top 30 LDraw parts authors - Travis Cobbs - 2013-08-12

Congratulations Philo on surpassing James. 139 new files in the latest update seems like a lot even for you.


Re: Top 30 LDraw parts authors - Santeri Piippo - 2013-08-12

I'm still that far down..? oh well, my parts are way more complex than your puny bricks and patterns anyway. Tongue


Re: Top 31 LDraw parts authors - Steffen - 2013-12-24

Counting only the \PARTS folder of our parts collection up to and including parts update 2013-02,
and leaving out all trivial "=" alias and "~moved to" files yields as top-31-authors:

James Jessiman       685
Steffen              429
Michael Heidemann    408
Chris Dee            398

EDIT: re-counted numbers by leaving out trivial "=" aliases and "~moved to" files.


Re: Top 30 LDraw parts authors - Rolf Osterthun - 2013-12-24

Hey Steffen,

thanks for the analysis. But I have one suggestion for improvement: In my opinion the alias files should not have the same weight like the original files (suggestion alias weight=0).
