    It doesn't make sense to me. Front page, right side. Says LEADERBOARD and some members names, but no rhyme or reason for those names to be there because it changes now and then. So can someone explain what that is?

    It looks like a listing that goes in reverse numerical order, probably of members who were online during a specific amount of time in the last hours, according to number of postings in that time frame. But I agree, it makes little sense.

    i could be wrong as i occasionally have been

    but it looks like the posters with the most posts

    for a time period

    with peach being number one with the most

    followed by the second then third

    and so on

    I was kinda dorking around the place, looking at stuff. Noticed it and wondered what it was.

    dorking around is a good idea. It's like sniffing, but using more than one bodily part to do it...


    lol...
