Welcome to 'Know Your Site', an every Monday Worldbuilding trivia feature where I use the Stack Exchange Data Explorer and maybe some python parsing to find out interesting things about the site.
I will post a question on Monday, and people have until Thursday at noon to guess the answer! To be clear, using the Data Explorer to get the answer is cheating. If you use that to find the answer, feel good about your inherent superiority, but don't post it! Also, absolutely do not look at my Data Explorer profile, because that is definitely cheating.
After three consecutive weeks of having my question answered in about 30 minutes, you guys have forced me to take extreme measures. For this week's question, Who is the highest reputation user whose highest tag score is a a certain tag?
Difficultly worded question, so here are some examples. Who is the highest reputation user that has reality-check as their highest tag? How about for science-based? Looking at the list in order of reputation:
Name Reality Check Science Based Cort Ammon 2526 1489 Thucydides 1592 1494 JDlugosz 1417 1675 Separatrix 1953 1236 Tim B 1028 1906 Will 1724 1897 HDE 226868 845 1402 kingledion 1841 2340
Cort Ammon has more rep in reality-check than any other tag, and is the highest rep user for which this is true, so Cort Ammon is the answer for reality-check. JDlugosz, Tim B, Will, HDE 226868 and kingledion all have more science-based than any other tag; of these, JDlugosz has the highest rep, so he is the answer for science-based, even though other users have a higher score for that tag. Make sense?
For these other tags, which user who has their highest tag score in each tag has the most overall reputation?
The user must have at least 10 not-closed answers in a certain tag to count. Thus, if you have 581 score from one post in computers, for example, you don't count. I made this limit because one-off answers with 100+ votes tend to skew things oddly.
Please post partial answers; you probably need it on this one :)
