A little bit ago, I started talking about ways that we could measure the success of the community without using pure "answer count" as the only barometer for community health.  I decided to do a little bit of data mining today and looked for the people who have received the highest number of "Helpful Votes" over the past three months.  Below that is the chart of the top answerers over the same time period.
