I know this isnt really a big deal, but should the positions of the top posters not be calculated from their overall rating, as opposed to their positive ratings, cause some people have total rating which are negative, and are above people with quite high force ratings.
Just a suggestion.

I think ( might be wrong here ) but the top posters are just from the last 7 days, so these change every week (depending if people get +1's ), but in the funboxes the highest force stays the same.

I think he means the fact that negative post ratings don't effect your position in the Top Posters list. This was done deliberately because we want to reward good posts but we don't want to make people fear negative ratings. Negative ratings have always been a lot more debatable than positive ones, so we'd rather not make their consequences too harsh.

Of course is someone gets a huge amount of negative ratings we will take more drastic action than bumping them down charts.

Ok, thanks. All makes sense now.
