It's a popularity contest. Aimfight is essentially Google pagerank for your buddy list. Compare yourself against your opponents and see who's on more people's buddy lists. Via slashdot.

I thought it figured out how many messages you've sent, not how many buddies you have?

I miss the good old days when we only compared our penis size - life is complicated these days ...

foobar wins over foobaz.
mofi wins over mefi.
good wins over evil (but it's close.)

Is there any way to determine who is number one???

I think that would be fascinating. Also... by adding the number one person to your buddy list, you would beat them, right?

woops no, adding buddies does not increase your score, my bad

Holy crap. mathowie = 19124.

It would be nice if the scores were explained better on the site.

I wish there was a good way to find out who had me on their buddy list through this...

a friend of mine hit the top 5% of most popular AIM users, based on this little app.... Like he needed the ego boost.

I find this program alarming accurate.

A strange hint to how this works....

What’s AIM® Rank?

If your score happens to be in the top 5% of all AIM users online, we’ll show you where you rank in comparison to the others in the top 5%.

If you don’t see your rank, it means you’re not in the top 5%. Remember, not ranking doesn’t mean you’re a bad person. It just means that people who have you listed as a buddy might not be online.
