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



I couldn't agree more but let's not stop there. How about removing the thread and post count that are there every time we post? If it's that important to someone they can keep track of it themselves.

I changed my sign from Buzzpaff to Buzzard to not show up on the top 5. Just to shut Josie up. LOL

I've been posting drivel for months now, and I still can't catch up, even with a 2 year head start.

Yup, that should go to. It serves no purpose. I prefer
rankings, like with numbers of stars, that tells how
long a person has been a member.

I for one like seeing how many posts and threads a user has created. Here's an example:

Some person makes their first post telling some story. I'm less likely to find it credible and spend time thinking about it/helping them with math etc. if they aren't an established member and are instead just a troll looking for attention.

On the other hand, the guy who yesterday asked questions about his dealer audition, I took time to respond to that because while I didn't recognize his username, I noticed that he had over 100 posts and had contributed to the forum over the years.

There are people who made accounts in 2010 but never post, so I would take opposition to them having several stars next to their name while someone who joined in 2012 but is very active and helpful is made to look like a newbie.

Damn, just realized my script has a bug of not counting admins, due to their green color and the regex I'm using to scrape page data. Whoops! Ran into the same problem with blocked members and fixed it, but there are a lot more blocked members than admins.

Since I'm SURE everyone is super excited about watching this list and where they fall, I'll try to fix it :p

Also, strictlyAP, you never answered my question as to whether you were just joking, are or WAY more efficient than me at hacking :).

Finally fixed the admin problem, list has been updated today! One thing I noticed from adding this fix is that either the Wizard specifically (or more likely all admins) don't show up in the "Top Contributors" list! I'm guessing this is by design, but it is interesting to note that the Wiz would be between Nareed and pacomartin in the top 5 were he included.
