We have designed a new reward system, to honor the top users and moderators in our forums. Once a month, we have an engine that will crunch the forum statistics for the last month, and rank the users based on their activity. These calculations consider the following parameters:
All of these are computed, averaged, and then used to calculate the top 5 contributors to our community. These members will receive the following:
1) A email message notifying them, and thanking them for their contributions to our community.
2) A special graphic that will appear by their posts, signifying them as one of our contributors of the month.
3) Their name in this thread showing the top contributors for the month.
In addition to regular users, the same above calculations plus moderator activities (editing, moving posts/threads, deleting/banning/warning spammers etc.) will be done for our moderators, and the top 3 moderators of the month will also receive the above 3 items.
Thank you all for your hard work and dedication to our community!
