  • This is not intended. I'll look into how it's planned on releasing in a few weeks and make sure that MVPs are in the general list.

  • It still seems to be the case.

    (I don't know if 17 days counts as a few weeks ...    and I anyway came in to ask about this but first, luckily, checked the existing threads).

    The other thing is that the present order seems to be

    Top Posters (default)
    Current Users
    MIcrosoft Top Posters
    MVP Top Posters
    Current Moderators

    why do Microsoft moderators (who are paid!) come before MVP Top Posters (who aren't) ?  :)

    also Current users isn't at all useful in my opinion and as all of these things slow down forums which I found amazingly slow when I was paying for the minute with a clock constantly ticking down (while on holiday), any one of these things that can be dumped ought to be. (I don't much see the point of "current moderators" either)

  • Since the V4 forums have an enhanced My Settings page where you can customize the display (get rid of the Tag Cloud for example) I think we should be able to turn this thing off completely. It' always been annoying, and even more so in V4 where you cannot manually select the category.

  • Is there a new "show accurate recognition" setting?  Missed it completely.  The new version shows I've earned 36,237 points in 30 days at BCL.  Over 100 answers a day.  Well, I'm back in the list.

    The new car smell last 3 months or so.

  • Yes, it's been back for at least a couple of weeks probably more.

    There's still the problem of the MVPs Total List and the general Total List having the occasional MVP in one but not the other list (i.e. an MVP that has in the past posted a lot of answers but doesn't any more). I don't think that has changed in the last couple of days.

    Should have been fixed yesterday afternoon.

  • Looks fixed to me.  MVPs don't participate in these forums much anymore, knocking the lists out of whack.  Find them back at sites like Stackoverflow.com.  I assume everybody knows why.

    It's possible.

    As has been mentioned earlier the new system of not being able to quickly go from one list (say Vistiors) to another list (say Top Answerers) is a nuisance.

    Most of the time I can't be bothered to wait until it slowly scrolls around to Top Answerers and Top MVP Answerers. So I won't have seen both lists for at least a couple of days.

    (The present default of a list of Actual Users is completely pointless in my opinion - who cares?)

  • There is a workitem to add the next/prev functionality back, it's just a matter of time/priority.

    With the MVC release, almost everything is available partial html via a url. That's how the system composes the UI and performs user actions.

    For instance you can get the all-up brand leader info via this url
    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/user/leaderboards

    and a specific forum, via this one (forumName would the same as the address bar for the forum you are interested in)
