Easier view of total points? Can the "Top answerers" list the number of answers per user for that period? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Most things in the new forums are much nicer. My only complaints are:

    1: Could you list users total points with their names or in a more prominent place. One thought I had was if you hover over the "medals" it could be an ALT or Title in the HTML so that it appears as a tooltip.

    2: I miss the number of answers listed next to users name in the list of Top Answerers. Also, I think the list is sorted differently than it used to be, folks that were near the top are now further in the list in the new forums.

  • Months ago we had made a few updates to the leaderboards. We addressed a few bugs around ordering by total points and we also added the number of answers in the last 30 days. So I think the main issues are resolved.

  • Re2: I have the feeling that the order of people is based on the order since the move to the new forums took place. That's why migration user is first and why all my 30-day points don't seem to be being considered.

    I.e. while it is annoying, (very annoying!) I suspect it will go over.

    But yes, I already sent e-mail saying that they should lists points next to the names (per forum) and also that they should bring back the top 100 list (of posters to all forums). 

    At the moment there's no real incentive to post good posts that others will mark as answers because you don't see yourself climbing (or falling) in the tables because of them.

  • Mike, while your theory is sound, I'd still love to see the number of answers in that forum. I personally am convinced the order is not based on number of answers in that forum. I've talked with John Ross who is above me in the sharepoint design forum leaderboard and he doesn't remember getting very many answers in that forum since the switch over... while for me, thats really the only forum I hang out in regularly, so almost all my answers are in there.

  • By the way if you don't believe me that the forum by forum leaderboard is sorting on total answers (not answers in the forum) just view source on the page, all the data is there. Here are the top ten listed exactly in the order that they are on the page, note the descending total answers number:
