What is Top Contributors in Brad's Group Mean

I noticed a list of Top Contributors from day one. Just curious what is this about in this group.

> the people who post comments the most in a particular discussion

Brad, is it supposed to show the folks who have posted the most in the discussion that is currently open (to the right of the TC list in the main pane) or the folks who have posted the most in the group overall?

I posted something about this before... to me it looks buggy :)

it should show something like "HainKurt (24 posts)" when hovered... instead of just an icon, which means NADA, unless that user has picture set as his avatar, or someone clicks and goes to his page...

Good idea HainKurt  like "HainKurt (24 posts)" at least this would bring a reason why they are here in the groups, as it is clicking on them now only shows the expertise levels.
How many avatars do you see? under Top Contributors

Is there an advantage to seeing who has polluted the thread the most? I might get my icon over there for interjecting often, but I may not have contributed any useful content.

I always see 5 (so far) :) most of the time 5 EE default icons, which does not tell me anything unless I click and open them...

This list will first display random members of the current group who are in your network (e.g. you are following them or they are following you). Once your network connections have been filtered through, it will show the most recent members to join the group.

Long story short: "Top Contributors" is a bad heading. We'll rename it to something more accurate.

Great ideas on how to make this display more useful everyone.
