March 2020 Member Leader Boards - Custom in College Wrestling Posted Thursday at 05:42 PM · Report reply 3 hours ago, jross said: The purpose of this topic is to announce and discuss the community self-defined, top March 2020 Member Contributors. The results are in and the recognition will be rolled out over time when I darn well feel like it. To qualify for March recognition, the member must have contributed 0.5+ posts daily OR received 22+ content reactions (one reaction per March weekday). As in wrestling, there are levels to forum membership. The top tier members deliver higher quality content, where quality content is defined as the quotient from dividing the reaction count by the content count. The tiers are: Tier 1 - 50%+, Tier 2 - 25%+, and Tier 3 - < 25%. 852 unique members accessed the forum in March. 484 members contributed content. 155 members qualified for recognition consideration. 368 members accessed the forum and did not contribute any content. Guest access was significantly higher from spot-check observation and was not tracked.

As a new member to the forum, I observed interesting and fun discussions but also negativity, drivel, and endless debates. There were member contributions that I routinely appreciated and other contributions that did not resonate with my tastes. I stumbled onto the leaderboard and discovered it favors quantity versus what I perceive as quality. With my software engineering background, I wondered if I could, through automation and at scale, scrape website member profile information to define, monitor, and measure quality metrics. I baselined member contributions weekly through March to put all members, regardless of tenure, on a level playing field. This was in part inspired by @tigerfan and is follow through of earlier comments. One of my learnings was that in order for people to improve their performance, they need to receive constant and continuous feedback. Based on that, I would like to request that you publish this very important analysis every hour on the hour, so the posters can make the necessary adjustments.
