A popularity contest is based on competition and can be exclusionary. In this case, it’s not about saying “which user is better than X user”, it’s only about thanking them for their contribution (at least that’s how I have interpreted it).

I personally don’t see it as a popularity contest. I see it more as an opportunity to show appreciation to other users of this community.

In your comments you show that you know a lot about free software, programming languages and the Fediverse in general (I have learned a lot here thanks to people like you) and you seem like a friendly person :D

It’s a shame that this has happened, and I hope that at least someone will take over Elementary OS so that the same thing that happened to Antergos doesn’t happen to it :(
