More on the Most Active User Algorithm

Posted by John July 17, 2007 in the Group General Discussion .

In case you missed it, the current algorithm (slightly restated to be easier to understand) is:

<i>[Your total lesson comments (including Extra)] + [Your total new posts +  Comments left on your new posts + Your total comments on others' new posts]</i>

The above only refers to activity in the past 7 days. 

I'm just curious if anyone has any other thoughts on it.

We could, for example, add in number of times a user has been added to others' watchlists, but that gives admins an unfair advantage (and I, for one, am totally against such evil manipulation of Most Active User totals), or it might lead to people changing their Watchlists to affect Most Active User ranks, and that's kind of dumb.
