    just a suggestion

    the forum could run an all time post leaderboard, basically a league of the number of posts a member has, so the posters with the highest amount of posts at the top and then running down

    there is no point setting up a table for every single member, so maybe the table starts at e.g. 1,000 posts

    Its a good suggestion mate but unfortunately top posting boards just encourages people to try and boost their post counts and make the forum then look like its got loads of pointless posts, this forum has always been really good compare to other spurs forums because there isnt loads of short , pointless posts mainly because we dont make a big deal out of having a high post count and the kids dont want to spam the place to hell .

    that's why you could start the league at a high number of posts, so no one can be bothered having to try and make up 1-2k worth of posts

    The older versions of this forum gave people's average daily posts. Forum upgrades have seen this function disappear. Thought others might want to know :302:

    Think the best way to do an all time posters league would be to work out the correlation of a number of posts been made, by the number of posts thanked and how many times the post has been thanked! :D

    A much simpler way is the number of posts thanked divided by the number of posts. This measures the percentage of a users posts other members had found useful. But not all debates and disagreements are thanked neither are laugh out loud posts nor last post - I win.

    ...or we could forget this idea of a league all together ?:eek:21: would be much simpler.

    p.s I don't need a league to tell me that I'm shit at one more thing in life lol.

    Should it be by number of posts thanked or thanks in general? Many posts are thanked more than once...

    Number of post thanked. It shows the number of posts people had found useful. Though it is still an unreliable measure because who would thank a counter-argument?

    Or how many times have people been thanked for little one word quips that aren't exactly useful just funny.

    Exactly - another way of testing whether a member's posts are useful is to randomly select a number of his/her post, read then, then score them on usefulness.
