Trophy points - what's the point?

    I didn't find any kind of statistics for trophy points or likes, and then I asked myself - why would people be interested in that if they cannot see who got the most? I mean, some points here and there doesn't tell much until they are sorted in a sidebar where everyone can see them.

    This should be something built into XenForo.

    They're linked to the user title ladder, in much the same way post quantities are in other software.

    That's the main point of them I suppose.

    They don't on other software, unless I'm mistaken.

    A sidebar showing the 10 users with most 'Likes' and/or most 'Points' would make it much more fun for members to try and get more of them. You know, many people are quite competitive - and this would make more people post more.

    but how should the user understand the "points system" and the use of it when he does not know that the points will increase his "user status" or "user title ladder" ?

    You can always request an add-on to be coded to display most liked posters, etc.

    There's probably already one available.
