We're introducing a comprehensive member ranking system on NowPublic. Essentially it's a way to identify the most active and effective newshounds on the site.
Your stats - number of stories, comments, “good stuffs” etc.- will be counted and compared with other members to create an extensive leaderboard. Each action on the site will be weighted differently in determining scores (hint: the most influential stats are stories, comments, good stuffs, and front page stories).
Details will be tweaked as we go along, and we'll be looking for feedback to improve it. Let us know your thoughts in the forum once you've checked it out.
Good luck, and may the best NowPublicans win - or at least rank fairly high.
