This is quite a generic question, but I want to know who is the best programmer in each section, I know every person has their own thing they are good at in programming but it is matter of personal choice who do you think is the best programmers in each section.
It could also be useful for employers to see best programmers here so that they can contact them.
LOL Script Coder, whats the point of that , it will simply just make it longer I would say we should have a Programmer of Week in which the best programmer is nominated every week to get award called Programmer of Week that way not only it would encourage other members to get more active but also to try harder.
Well it is my idea personally,
On topic, anyone think andywestken is quite a good programmer here. He is quite mature here and also helps.
I wouldn't go on the number of posts a person has necessarily as a guide to their knowledge. What about someone who has 40+ years of industry experience and 10,000 posts on another forum, but they have 20 posts on this forum?
I have over 2k posts, but I mainly help beginners & sometimes intermediate problems.
BHXSpecter has mentioned his posting profile, but I think he has more knowledge than he is willing to admit. In other words - Back yourself BHX, all info is a help - don't worry about what other people say. There are people who might value your replies, but don't say so.
On topic, how is it going to work given people post their topics seemingly anywhere - even beginners questions in the UNIX section? Also how to gauge someone's ability based on the questions they answer - their actual ability may far exceed any question being asked. Seems to me that you would finish up with a list of posters that people trust. But that is just my view.

I get what you mean, but as a general rule of thumb more posts shows a person has been here longer... and... sorry I don't really know where I was going with this thought.
Anyway I agree with TheIdeasMan, it's difficult to judge people's skill levels (at least accurately) without actually seeing much of the code they produce.
