Best of the Mac Web survey results posted Site News has posted the results of their Spring 2002 Best of the Mac Web survey. was included on this survey as a result of its 2nd-place showing on the Rest of the Mac Web survey last fall. This was our first time on the main survey of 50 Mac-related web sites.

How'd we do? was ranked 15th based strictly on number of votes received, which was higher than I had expected but not all that important to me. On the more meaningful "quality of the site" criteria, however, macosxhints ranked 8th overall, with a score of 4.220 out of 5.000 (the superb site squeaked into 7th place, ahead of us by .002 points!). Visit to view the full survey results.

These results mesh with my objectives for -- I don't care if we're the most popular, but I do care that people find the hints posted here informative and useful. With a score of 4.220, it appears that most people think we're doing a pretty good job in that category. Thanks to everyone that took the time to complete the survey; I'm once again humbled by your ranking of the site!

Hard earned and well deserved. My congratulations. You sum up the philosophy of your site well in your own comments. To be in an essentially "dead heat" tie with ResExcellence speaks for itself.

When one considers the large, active staff of those who work on "Hints," which consists of a crew of one volunteer, your accomplishment is amazing.
