The one I consider the best around here is Helios. Not for his post count, but because I happened to read some of his answers that showed great knowledge of algorithms, physics, statistcs, etc.
Granted that there are other users who are really good, his posts are those that striked me the most.
Hard to group into "best" sections. There are people who consistently strive to give helpful answer and advice.
Generally speaking, I find Disch gives unparalleled clarity in his answers. Has a way of wording things in the best possible way that I'm envious of.
I've noticed chrisname give some excellent advice on games in the past.
LB also stands out, but mainly because I've become aware that he is not only younger than me, but also much, much smarter. This is, in a manner of speaking, cripplingly depressing.
That's not to overlook anyone else out there, by the way. This forum is the best C++ resource on the planet, no exceptions (tee hee). It's just that the individuals above have, in some way, stood out to me in posts in the past.
I vote for the days when this forum didn't have users like devon(Less so then Fredbill) and fredbill posting useless clutter in every single thread.
Sorry to derail this thread even further but my god its fine to joke around every now and then but when you guys post useless crap on every single thead it get very annoying very fast. So can you guys please tone it down a bit?
Btw fredbill you need to learn the meaning of sarcasm. Everytime you say something that makes you look stupid you can't just blame it on being sarcastic. Acting like a fool and sarcasm are not the same thing.
Sarcasm can only really be interpretted through body language and/or tone of voice. Neither of these exist in printed text on the internet. Therefore if you are being sarcastic in a forum post, there is absolutely no way for anyone else to know you are being sarcastic.
Another protip: One way to denote you are being sarcastic in a forum post is to mimic body language and/or tone of voice in the text. This can be done by adding a smilie... usually the "sticking your tongue out" :P smilie -- possibly with a wink ;P.... or by emphasizing words in a sarcastic manner similar to how you would if you were speaking them (although the latter method is harder to pull off as it's still difficult for people to tell whether or not its sarcasm).
An even easier and less subtle way is to put in a </sarcasm> closing tag.
