Forums  /  The Site  /  Who has the most forum posts list

I post here way too much. It’s a shame that I’m addicted to posting things in these forums. It’s been a year of me being on the site and I’m still struggling with becoming a respected user. I’m not quite there yet, but that is something that I want to achieve. I started posting in the site forums almost 5 weeks ago. I liked posted things in all the different threads that went with the thread topics. I posted because I was semi addicted to posting things. Then I made this list that tracked who had the most forum posts, and that was the straw that broke the camel’s back. A day afterwards my post rate went up a ton and I was making dumb threads. I was the last person to have posted something on all 6 subforums and maintained that for like a whole day. Every time I posted something, I thought about my post count. Finally after some backlash in the empty posts only thread (which copied another thread in the same subforum made by @Sizzyl), I made a thread where I apologized for wrongdoings on the site, and in that post I mainly apologized for mishaps as a game moderator. Not as a forum poster. I did show down on making threads, but I still have kind of post farmed since then. I also want to make this clear. If you post more frequently then @Merl_Merl_ and I do, you may want to think twice before posting. It helps.

The leaderboard has been moved to https://posts.mcbe.wtf

For those curious about the code behind the site (It's just a super tiny static-site generator): https://github.com/Mango0x45/src-forum-posts-leaderboard

If anyone finds a user with 500+ forum posts not listed, feel free to either send them in this thread or make a PR added them to the "users" file.

The site now displays your posts per day as well (its calculated by dividing your total posts by your account age)

You can now sort by either total posts or posts per day

How does this work? Even if you have 10 posts a day you don't appear on the leaderboard even if you filter by posts per day. I don't see it being fair.

How I think it should've been done is you literally should've just tracked the amount of posts of the users posted in a single day instead of what you did (I don't know how it works).

Only users with more than 500 posts appear on the list. Posts per day is your number of posts divided by your account age in days.

 
  HiHi

Hm, can't you make it so people that have more than 100 posts show up? Is there too many people with more than 100 posts?

Also I'd be curious to see the site showing the most posts in a day instead of the "posts per day" thing. Even if people can farm posts.

There are way, way, way too many people with 100+ posts

we probably don't even have all of the 500+ people, adding 100+ would probably quadruple the size of the list, maybe more

Yes, but it means that for every person we find there are 500 more that we haven't found yet. Ideally we could just use a bot to check every account but the /users/ endpoint is dead meaning that the only alternative to get every single user on the site is to manually check every single possible combination of legal characters with the lengths 1 to 21 which with modern internet speeds is just not feasible.
