A new feature I'd like to see
I know that I've left comments about this potential new feature before in other areas, but I wanted to put it here as well - partly to gain community feedback, partly to test out The Town Square, partly to lessen others' fears of posting here.
I like just about all the new innovations I'm seeing lately. I hope to have said farewell to all those single-post blogs permanently; I've noticed myself that there were a lot of people who were posting one blog after another without realizing that there was a key marked "add new post" at the top of each blog. I also like the feature about using unique-visitor hit counts to judge our popularity rankings as well; BN's policy on unique hits and how they affect popularity is far more generous than that of many other sites, in my experience.
The only feature I feel to be lacking is the Most Popular Reviewers feature. I can currently go onto each member's Member Profile to find out the rankings of their blogs, and how much money they've earned on BN, but there is no area on BN to determine how members stack up against each other. Who is the top money earner on BN, and how do I stack up against them? Where can I compare Member Profiles against each other to see which member consistently has the most popular blogs with the highest unique hit counts in a 24-hour period? Only a public ranking system in which this information is included in a chart for member consumption could answer that question for me.
Thanks for allowing me to "vent."
