Another favorite widget for my forum, makes it easy to see who the biggest contributors to the forum are every week, and if any newcomers are in the list each week!
I used an addon like this in XF 1 and was happy to see it available for XF 2. I like the styling of the widget and didn't feel like I had to "fix it" at all. Also I've found that this does encourage people to post because they like to see their avatar up there. I had no problems on the install either.
