If I am in a forum, I'm using this one as my example, it says I am fourth on the "top posters"...



BUT, if you search (because I know I've done way more than four posts in there)...



You see I've made 107 posts in this forum. I've also started 37 threads, with this being 38th. So my question is, is this broken or is there some time limit around the calculation that limits me to only having four posts? Like "Top Poster in the past 30 days". I care because I feel like I find and report more bugs than anyone else and I don't feel comfortable constantly saying, "I've already reported that, no one cares."

Top posters shows threads posted, not comments - I believe.

Not sure about this one. The forum software takes care of most of that stuff.

Looking through your threads, it looks like more than 50% of them have been fixed, several more of them probably could have been marked fixed. So I would say your input is taken and somebody cares...

Let's look at the recent badges as an example. I listed 30 badges that should be created, you edited that down to 20, and Eric said he was going to create your list and thanked me for doing that leg work. That's awesome. But (sorry there's a but) he only created 5 (so one sixth of what I suggested, a quarter of what he said he would deliver) and most importantly that was nearly NINE MONTHS after I suggested it. That's a black hole. I tell my team this all the time, "It's fine if you can't get to something right now, but at least acknowledge you saw the request and try and estimate when you will get to it." Eric is very quiet and other than being diligent about thanking premium members (which is probably scripted since it reads the same), he is rarely visible on his own site.

Bumping this back up so Fshguy can see it (since he seems to be investigating issues). Also I'm hopefully adding clarity that I haven't previously in the thread.



I've switched to a smaller forum so it's easier to see. As you can see, I've started 9 (of the 13) threads in the premium users forum. As you can see, in just the most recently active thread I have 7 posts. Yet when you look to the right to see who the top poster is, I have a 4 next to some conversation bubbles.

  1. Does that 4 represent the number of posts?
  2. Does that 4 represent the number of threads started?
  3. Is that number, limited by some time parameter that isn't represented (like past 30 days)?

I cannot think of another way to explain this problem or ask these questions so if I get nowhere this time I will give up.

I'll see if I can track down what the number means, but not sure how far I'd go to try to fix it unless the fix is obvious, this would be part of the forum software.

It is past 30 days. Fixed the heading...

You can see it in this one when nobody posts it tells you:

I was really wanting to use the Retro forum as an example for that, but Futiles saved it...
