Odd. My post-count is higher than a few people at the end of that list, yet no props for the J-to-the-X. Perhaps I should change my name to J.(ason)Lo.

I hand't realized quite how active you (top 20) are. Just below the Top Posters it says:

"This data is based on users active over the past five minutes"

Yeah, the numbers don't match up. IIRC Chaos said it was something to do with PMS.

At the risk of looking like the world's biggest dumbass, where is this 'index page' again? 8-[ [-o<

Scroll down to the bottom of the main forum page... You'll see a table row that starts with this icon: http://www.thechaosengine.com/phpBB2/templates/subSilver/images/top_users.gif

I took a look at the code and it's weird how they actually count posts. I'm not sure which is the right figure. There are several places in the code where they count up posts; the forum code, user profile, the top posters MOD etc. They all do it slightly differently. The code on the profile page does it in the weirdest way. They query SQL by grabbing a table of a users posts from the entire database. They then simply count the rows. It's strange because there actually is a 'user_posts' DB entry which is updated every time you submit something, but only a few places use that included the top posters MOD.... that's why the totals are different.

You frickin' perfectionist brain crippled donkeys.

Make sure you're using the 'subSilver' scheme. All site mod's are only guaranteed to work under the default scheme.

What did the close relative of the LLama say he prepared for a picnic with his son?

Alpacas a lunch.
