New: Leaderboard

We are excited to announce the Leaderboard as the latest all new feature of IPS Community Suite. The new Leaderboard is designed to better highlight your most active members and content based on reputation and other metrics. The Leaderboard will greatly enhance both member and content discovery on your community.

Leaderboard Home

First you will notice the new feature of member leaders based on a specific time frame. In the example above it is set to All Time showing those members with the most reputation overall on your community. It also shows the content with the most reputation for the same timeframe so you get a snapshot of both popular members and popular content in one view.

Past Leaders

The Past Leaders tab shows the "winners" of each day in a history. The system counts all reputation made each day and logs the members who had the top reputation counts that day. Using reputation rather than post count encourages your members to post quality of quantity which is really important to any site.

Winner Profile Badge

Those who win the day also get a badge on their profile page to highlight that they were the member with the most reputation for a particular day.

Top Members

Top Members shows you a list of all members sorted by various metrics. By default you will see members sorted by reputation but you can also easily sort by total post content Suite-wide or per-app. All of these views can be linked directly to so if you wanted a menu item to show members who post the most files in Downloads you can just directly link to that sort view.

Leaderboard Settings

There are various settings to control the default behavior of the Leaderboard. You can define the default view and how many members to show which is helpful to tailor it to your needs.

We hope you enjoy this initial launch of the new Leaderboard feature. We are excited about the new content and member discovery abilities this offers and look forward to adding new options to the Leaderboard as we continue to develop!

 

This change will be in version 4.1.17 which is scheduled to be released in early December 2016.

Well i think its quite nice but its not for me because i think it promotes quantity over quality really... (  party pooper me sorry)

I think its because we cannot exclude certain groups ie management  which gives it a bit of an unfair edge maybe... .

iits a good start and maybe it can be adapted in some other way???

It emphasizes the number of "likes" that a person's content receives, so it does emphasize quality in that way... It is not just "post count!"
