Recognize x number of members each month on the front page using numbers from either like, trophy, points, activity, etc. etc. It'll encourage contribution.
Hopefully the suggestion will be accepted.I'm kinda diggin' this idea. This would be a nice way to automatically recognize members and keep them posting and active!
Exactly. Who doesn't like active participation? ;-)Definitely a good idea. Activity rates go up, participation goes up.
Yes you did.I suggested something similar which was a random member block.
Once the template and code is set up, it should be easy to switch the criteria such as random, time based activity, etc.This idea is in reference to activity vs time period. I can think of a couple of things that would help me in that regard.
Forums, in general, remove all concepts of time period. Posts can be separated by short or long periods of time. Besides the 28 day thread marking timeout I am unaware of any time based information kept track of. As opposed to the awstats my hosting provider gives me where I can see activity vs time.Once the template and code is set up, it should be easy to switch the criteria such as random, time based activity, etc.
I just posted my link as I think that 99% of the work required on both of these suggestions will be identical and it will just be a template edit to switch between the 2 types of block.
Sorry, I can't see how it is similar. My suggestion is targeted while your suggestion is random.I suggested something similar which was a random member block.
The overall template will be identical.Sorry, I can't see how it is similar. My suggestion is targeted while your suggestion is random.
A query is scheduled to run against the database to determine the most active users in the previous 28 days. These users go on the leaderboard.Forgive me. How would rolling 4 weeks work?
