    Okay, this is a good one that took off well on the other forums.

    Obviously we have a bunch of tags. But they're user-specific, and most you need to apply for and be of a certain type of plumber within the industry etc.

    I've created a new tag. "Top Contributor" that automatically gets applied based on post count. And post count alone.

    Currently set at (and I might change this from time to time) 50 posts in 30 days.

    So if you have posted 50 posts in the last 30 days, you get the tag. (It recounts every 20 minutes so if you don't get it instantly, wait a bit.)

    So staff, members, arms members, sponsors, trusted guys, everybody can equally gain a tag based on their post count alone. :D

    No worries Dan lost my top contributor flag been on each day posting whats all that about cheers kop
    It's completely automatic matey.

    Current rate is 100 posts in 50 days. Runs a count every 20 minutes to reissue the tag. Or remove it.

    Even staff can lose it.

    It's the most fair way. :)

    Which of the above is it 50 in 30 days or 100 in 50 days just so we know where we are up to?

    You may wish to consider "Active Contributor" as an alternative label for this badge. I think that many people's intutive interpretation of "Top" won't match the metric that it represents.

    I believe it was 100 in 50. Perhaps it would be better once you got the badge you shouldn't loose it that's just my opinion
