XF 1.2 Remove Most Messages Tab in the Notable Members List

Hello, is there a way to remove the 'Most Messages' tab in the 'Notable Members' list? I am looking to just display the 'Most Likes' tab as the landing page under 'Notable Members' so members are listed based on most likes.

I tried removed the following line from 'member_notable' template but it's not working:
<li class="{xen:if '{$type} == "messages"', active}"><a href="{xen:link members}">{xen:phrase most_messages}</a></li>

You will actually need an add-on to do this, since the default action is most messages. (Basically, just fetching say most likes as a default).
