Active Level Bar

I imagine it would depend on the creator of said plugin yes? Could simply be hrs per day online.
Could be posts per day.
Could be a mixture of both. Really is dependent on the creator. The image above i have seen on another forum i go to.
Not sure how it calculated the meter though. Could even be amount of keystrokes made in posts perhaps. Like plaza does for payment.
Dunno still i think its a good idea that has worked for VB.

That's not a default VB feature and I gotta say I have never come across it in any forums I visit.

I know the old RPG plugin which showed HP, MP, and some other parameter was based on this type of concept. It's not difficult to make a plugin that does what you are talking about.

But for me to create something I need to understand not just how it works but why it's needed. I just don't build plugins because someone wants it. I have to have a use for it. It has to make sense.

What is "activity level" and why is it important to know?

Hmm...I might have some ideas on this. Let me think more on this but feel free to continue discussing. Maybe something will come out of this thread.

Hmm this can be a good plugin. Shows activity of a user and encourages the lazy / inactive members to post.

It's going to require a task be run if this is to work. That could be an intense query as each members activity bar would need recalculation.

Isn't that what post count, star level, and a point system does anyway?

Yes imho it does already but I understand they want something that's more immediately gratifying and quantifiable. It's not a bad idea in concept it's execution that's an issue. For me I never want to create fluff that's going to be heavy load and high impact on the database.

If I'm not mistaken the way these work is that there's several full bars in different colors, so from let's say 100-200 posts, there would be a green bar that has to fill up and then from like 300-500 posts there might be a blue bar and so on.

I'm not sure if it's really based on the amount of posts though, it could be threads or even online time...

Hmm...based on Online Time imho makes the most sense. That's actually easy to accomplish. Maybe that's the route I will take.

I like that, Time Online would be good. But when would it be filled?
