LQ should come up with a smarter way of ranking users

Posted 05-29-2009 at 05:39 AM by rob124

I have looked at how LQ ranks its users. I was astonished to notice that users are simply ranked by the number of posts they have. While this is a good way of recognising long time members, I find that misleading to especially new users. Of great concern is the title "Guru" that is given when someone reaches 5000 posts.
