My Secret Askville Identify Revealed

I just logged into my account on Amazon's Askville, their Q&A site where you answer peoples' questions and get "gold" that you can use for coffee mugs and the like. I found that I'd gotten a bunch of compliments online... it ends up that I'm the "Askviller of the Day". In the last week, I had six answers of mine make the "best answer" list, and I it looks like that put me on top of whatever ranking system they use. To be honest, I'd never even noticed the little recognition box on the bottom of the home page; I usually find interesting questions through the topic-based RSS feeds. Still, it's an honor... maybe I'll stay interested enough to earn enough gold to get the Askville coffee mug; I'm halfway there right now.
