We wanted to make all of our members aware of a few recent changes to the Forums here on Codebearers.com. After much discussion with our fantastic Moderators, Allan and I have decided to make a few tweaks to improve the community interaction within the Forums.
First off, we have renamed the "Leaderboards" page to now be referred to as "Most Active". That's essentially the only reason we have that feature enabled on the site - to show members what topics are being talked about the most and what members are the most active. There's no award to be won there. Hopefully that shift in terminology will curb the desire to add posts JUST to get a "leader" recognition. We still wanted to try keeping the page up since it can be a great way of members finding out where the discussions are happening so they can join in the conversations too.
Second, we decided to define a few new rules for Forum participation. In short, the rules are: No double-posting and No one-word posts. You can read more about what each of those rules mean on the "Forum Rules & Guidelines" post (at the bottom).
Thanks for creating great discussions and friendships on this site. We hope you continue to enjoy your time spent here on Codebearers.com.

You guys are great, I really appreciate all the efforts you make to keep this site fun and safe, so *ahem* Thank you:)
Erm. How does the system work? Because some of the most inactive people are on the 20.
Great question, CandyBlazeX)! We actually had to check the settings on this feature ourselves to be sure. The answer is that the "Most Active" ranking is based on the last month of activity. It is just meant to be used as a snapshot of where the most "action" is happening on the site at any given time.
Based on your question we tweaked the "Most Active" page to include a "(during the last month)" description to make this answer more readily known to all members. Thanks for asking!

And it restarts at every month? So if Lexi were to post one hundred things(Forum posts,page posts,blog posts..) then she'd be at the top of it if everybody else posted twice?
Is that a challenge? :P jk
We shall see!
I posted 3,000 posts last month and I'm nowhere on there.
Danny. Our contest moves from forum page to most active...
G'luck ta you.
Good luck catching up to me. :P
Nope, resets every month. X)
True, but I will always have more posts than you.
