Simple question, do you guys want to keep the activity system or not?

The poll is open for one week, until then it stays active.

Description
vBExperience is an advanced level and activity system. It will calculate an activity and experience score for every user based on their activites on the forum. Now your users will see how their level is increasing by participating on your forum.
This mod was developed by me because I was never satisfied with the post count. Communities are not only defined by post count, they need much more parameters: Are the postings the user creates helpfull? Are his threads frequently read? Does the user participate on the community by posting pictures, attachments, leaving visitor messages, tagging threads? All this can be answered with this mod.
Calculation of the score
Taken into calculation are these things:
Threads
- Created threads
- Thread views of own threads
- Thread replies of own threads
- Thread votes of own threads
- Thread tags (vBulletin 3.7)
- Replies to own threads
- Sticky threads

Posts
- Created posts
- Views on attachments

User
- Days since registration
- Referrals
- Received infractions
- Reputation
- Visitor messages on profiles (vBulletin 3.7)
- Members of own social groups (vBulletin 3.7)
- Albumpictures (vBulletin 3.7)
Calculation of the activity
The system calculates the activity by taking the average post count of the ten most active user and comparing it to own post count. This can be set to count only the last X days, f.e. 21 days (controlable via AdminCP) .

I like the idea, but I think it's gonna be overused by people determined to be the master's of forum activity. Which could get annoying.

I don't like the forum telling me that I'm "not active" based solely on the number of posts I make. I check the forums basically every day.

I'm a little more pessimistic than others when it comes to post-count based incentives, but, as Sub said, if it stays, I won't lose sleep over it.

Like you said in another thread Maj, it's showing quantity over quality. I have more points than people like DJ Ready and Skyrider, you know.

I don't see a point to it. It doesn't encourage me anymore to post or anything. They just look like the PL and KI bars in the game.

I like it. Though it can be very inaccurate, its kinda fun to compare and watch your bar go up (or down) over time. If only if it was more accurate.

How do they judge reputation.

So far alot of people voted no, which is a shame, but I think if we don't get atleast a 75%+ like, just remove it.
we can do without and that beats having people annoyed or w/e by looking at it :(

For this reason, I think the bars suit the forum, as this is the ESF forum, but as for Forum purposes, I don't really think it adds much.

It's alright, I guess, but I don't care if it stays or goes.
