It would be cool to be able to see the "Top Contributors" past just the top 5. I don't know if this was intentionally left off or just an oversight. But when you click on the "Top Contributors" link above the top 5 listing, it just takes you to the alphabetical list of users.

Not important, of course, but I'd like to see where I fall in the list :)

Nice, did you just crawl the website or are you joking?

If you are joking, maybe I'll work on that...while I'm at work...not working...

I think that is a terrible idea. Why give people an incentive to just post more without regard to quality. I think the whole idea of showing how many posts users have is counter-productive.

I don't know what forum software Mike uses, but I noticed some sites use software that allows members to "vote" on the quality of a person's posts; which affects their ranking.

I vote for getting rid of that function altogether.
Who cares who the top contributors are, it has
nothing to do with anything.

What's the incentive? Prove to others that wouldn't care anyway that you are "King of the Internet"?

On my private poker forum, I was the 3rd most verbose in my posts I think, so I am never making high post quantity.

This forum software is custom written by JB.

I understand the opposition to the idea, although I don't agree. I think it's harmless, people are going to run their mouth off on the internet regardless of anything. So without further ado, I present to you: The ranking of members!

Took me about an hour or so to hack it together in perl. Note this list is not auto-updating, it is a snapshot

So either you were joking, or you did the same thing I did and confused me with aceofspades :). If so, props for hacking it together in 14 minutes, a paltry amount of time compared to me.

Typical computer guy, counting from 0 :)
