Re A few questions from a newbie
James --
At a guess I would say just to do the VLs around 80 - 90 days. I am not aware of anyone doing the VLs on consecutive days.
Simon Byrne (simoburn) did the VLs + Arderins in 101 days walking (not consecutive days however) and shared the entire campaign as 101 gps tracks, all up on the website for anyone to view to find routes.
Based on his experience I'd say to put up a good time you'd want to be prepared for 3000m+ 30k days.
The Community=>Summiteers Hall of Fame list is configurable. You can select which columns you want by clicking on "List Options Show" which allows you to pick which lists such as the Vandeleur-Lynams you want to view.
The VLs are definitely considered a list in their own right. 13 people have done it (or earlier versions before a particular summit was found recently). MountainViews issues certs for list finishers at an annual ceremony held in February.
