" So, someone rated 914 would be a High IQ brain, with little common sense, who has average gaming knowledge."

Sounds like a fair rating, at least for me !

Test One would be an IQ test


That should drive away some current members, and most of any new, perspective members.



now that's irony.

I remember flunking out of dog trainer's school. Some silly requirement that your IQ had to be higher than the dog's !

I'm glad that thread ranking gets almost no use. And member and/or post rankings can and will get horribly abused if implemented, with lots of hard feelings; been there, done it, had to disable it or nuke the forum, it got so bad. I would suggest we leave the rankings part alone.

Also would like the Top Posters to link to a list sorted by post number, since I'm not making requests. ;->


Babs, In case you didn't read the first couple pages of this thread, that's exactly what I've created here (see links below).

How about listing who has the most posts in the least amount of time?


Now that request is feasible. I could add a "average posts/day" metric or somesuch to the table. I'll put it on my backlog.


I have released a new version! The list now includes an additional column: "Posts per day (approximate)." This calculation was actually pretty easy to do (especially on a *nix system with the `date` command). If any nerds are interested in the Perl code for the whole kit-and-caboodle, I have made it available here.

I also changed the schedule so that it updates at 3am PST/6am EST and the timestamp at the top of the page is in PST (since that's where I am; and that's where the forum is hosted).

Additionally, I stopped listing members with 0 posts. This cuts down on the page size, and really, what's the point of seeing those names? I could make the cutoff even higher (only list posters with more than 10 posts, maybe?), which I'm considering.

WOV members by post count
DT members by post count

If you have other feature requests, feel free to mention them here. If I find it interesting I'll work on it.

I've read through this thread and am considering the issue. A question to be addressed is if I get rid of the "top posters" list, what do I replace it with.

I also don't think we need the list of the "newest members." Personally, I've never paid any attention to it.



Please don't get rid of that, quick way to check new Members for duplicate accounts.

Aces,

I did see it and I really appreciate the work you did on it. I'd like to see your macro on a button somewhere I can find it, rather than digging it out of this thread, for those who care how many posts each person has.

I think the biggest missing feature is a rating of individual posts. A basic "+1" feature that rewards users for quality replies. Then you could have a top rated users list which I think would be more relevant than just most posts.

Yes. The best forums on the Web all have ways to reward good posts. A thumbs up/thumbs down button is a must.
