  • I think this is how it is supposed to work - for all threads in last 30 days in that forum it counts number of answers per person and then select top 10 from that statistics. It will be better to get the actual query by the forum's admins. Say, how do they resolve ties - is the second order criteria by last name?

  • Also, there are really two cuts of this data. All msdn/locale. On category pages and home pages this is all answers in the past 30 days for MSDN English (for example...or TechNet German etc etc.). On Forum pages the numbers reflect ONLY what's happened in that particular forum. So low numbers at the forum level typically just mean not a lot, volume wise, has happened in a particular forum re: answers.

  • Really? That seems like an awefully low number to be in the top list :S
    Do you have to answer a few times before it starts counting?

  • If it's not a trade secret, can you show the actual query? I'm just curious how do you resolve ties.
