I think he brought a bunch of subscribers from his Metacafe presence.

Probably Tim Andersion (818). Giannyl has 770. Kiteman has 470. These numbers are as of 15 November 2010.

You could write yourself a Perl script to figure it out. For each Instructables user, access their "statscard" data (.../member/statscard/?screenName=username), and parse out the numbers after "Subscribers".

Given the number of Instructables members, you should contact Staff directly before hammering their servers with this sort of query.

I would say that subscribers aren't everything, but I have already designed a special patch for #500...

Yes, I know, but,,,

Nothing wrong with that. Whether you put value on the number of your subscribers, the people who do the subscribing are putting value on you, and such a patch is a recognition of that for the person who receives it.

True.

Or, possibly, "word".

*ahem* woops

A perl script like this would take a LONG time to run, there are thousands and thousands of instructables members :)

On the up side, though, I don't believe there an easy way to get them all, so the hypothetical script kiddie would have a pretty short input list :-) Security through obscurity, always the best defense!

Said script kiddie would be wise to scrape the top 1000 ibles by views/rating to get his/her list of eligible contenders.

Maybe. I just did a quick by-hand check -- of the top ten in views, only five of the authors have more than 100 subscribers, and only three are major targets (of which one is The Kipkay). I'm sure there's a correlation, but you're probably right that the top 100 or 1000 I'bles would be needed to get a decent distribution.
