Wikis allow other people to adjust your definition as well. I think all 
of Relle's points are valid, I wouldn't want to create/maintain an 
"a-list" of IRC people any more than I would for anything else. It's 
exclusionary, elitist, emotional, and I think it will cause more trouble 
than it's worth. If people on IRC are looking for more recognition may 
we could do something different, like have a poll on the most helpful 
IRC users and then send them a WP t-shirt or some sort of prize.
