Top 100 Photography and Fine Arts themes

Watch the Top 100 list for Month 2 at http://goo.gl/qsxoq
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are hundreds of Photography and Fine arts theme here on G+, but which are the top 100 ones and the top of the tops? To know the answer, I designed a system that tracks the submissions to various themes and it ran for full 4 weeks between 2012-04-14 00:00GMT and 2012-05-12 00:00GMT (28 days so that all weekly themes get same number of theme days) and here is the result.

351 themes were tracked for 4 weeks. There were around 50000 mentions of 340 themes and the Top 10 themes recieved over 30% mentions. The daily themes, i.e. those with no specific day, secured the first 5 positions, not surprising as they run for 7 days a week. Among the weekly themes, those on Mondays recieve the highest number of submissions followed by Wednesday, Friday, Tuesday, Sunday, Saturday and least submissions for Thursday's theme. Instead of listing the themes in 1 to 100 order, they have been categorised according to days they run on and the global rank is mentioned in the brackets (GR: Global rank)

Did I miss mention of a deserving theme here? Do let me know so that I can add it to the list tracking for which is starting next week (precisely 2012-05-17 00:00GMT). To beat the theme at 100th position a theme must have at least 30-35 average weekly photo submissions (reshares not counted) and to rise to the top it must have more than 550-555 weekly submissions.

To see the number of submissions each theme received in 4 weeks check this link https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AlHsrKnhDN3CdHUtaXQ5d3pTUWtRTl9rYkhXYTRKckE

Update: The next round of tracking started at 2012-05-17 00:00GMT with 403 themes, and the result post is planned for 16th June
