Hall of Fame module
This isn't anything that's integral to the core of the site, but I thought I'd install something "fun" for a change.
The module is called "Hall of Fame" and can be found at:
It simply prints up statistics of whom the most active users on the system are.
Anyway, comments are welcome on this module. If anyone finds it particularly useful, do let me know!
Awesome! Something for people to strive for!
From my experience with other forums I have always seen something that gives a reward, in this case being listed on the Hall of Fame, to posters for posting in high amounts as a dangerous thing. Many may strive to be on it to the point of potentially spamming, or creating seperate topics for things that shouldn't have one.
Any sort of reward system will be abused. Forums are no exception.
That being the case, it's one of the reasons I implemented comment moderation. I'm also going to look into hacking on Hall of Fame so that the average score of a poster's comments is displayed.
Anyone who causes serious enough problems to get my personal attention will be dealt with in creative ways.
