Top Posters thing, etc.

Post  mposiblisnothng on Wed Jun 25, 2008 2:05 am

I found out how to add a Top Posters thing, along with some others. These are all the ones that can be added:



The only problem is that they don't go at the bottom, they go at the top right: I colored over the names



So if you would like any of these added, please vote. If everyone likes the idea, I will add another poll, asking which ones should be added. For now, just decide if you would like them or not.

I say no, because post count doesn't matter.

And if anyone says it shows active members, the thing that shows active members is if you see their posts, and recognise their name when they post.

I like the idea of constantly reminding me of my top posting.

First of all, your grammar is awful.
Secondly, that would be fine if you deserved over 50% of your post count.

Not top posters, also gives people more of a reason to spam.

The spamming isn't gonna stop now.
Too much of it and too many people who enjoy spamming.
Rep would be a good idea I think.
It'd show who the good members are, and allow people to shame spammers with -rep which may stop them.

Spammers spam becuase they want a high post count.

If they got even more rewarded to get a high post count, they will hit the posts to the extreme trying to be the top.

Which is total opposite reason for a forum, not the post count, to reply with meaning and not "lol" "cool" "1951" etc.

Yeah but if there is also a top Reputation list, they'll realise that spam gets them -rep and they might find the right balance for being a good member/poster.

yes.
So then people will want to post a lot to boost their post count, but will also want to make good quality posts to boost their rep.

Nah..Not going to happen..

The way to do it is top rep list, then people will want that so they will post helpful replys.

and no top posters at all.

But we do want a lot of activity here.
So post count helps raise activity, but even if there isn't a chart. People will still be comparing their post count, why not make life easier for them.

You're bascially saying make life easier for spammers, let them get a million spam posts so they can have a postion as number 1 poster and be shown that.

Well they're not necessarily spammers.
And if they do compare that often, then they'll want a high rep too and to get that they'll have to make high quality posts.

605 posts in 4 days with a commuity of 20-ish people isn't spam?

If you think it's possible to get almost 150 posts a day with such a small forum?
