    Using the Activity Bar a thread is not need to track it, however a new thread detailing all the requirements, goals and rewards would be a good idea.

    The activity bar is screwy. I went from 44% to 10% in seconds. What is up with that?

    It only updates every so often when you aren't actively online and doing things. You are now online, so now it's moving. Your average posts per day has been going down, so your activity bar went down to reflect that.

    I think this is how it works, so you were last online on the 3rd, at that time it gave you 44% activity based on the 21 days before. When you logged in today it recalculated using the last 21 days from today which equals 10%. The reason for the jump is it doesn't recalculate your activity until you log in, it might wait until you earn points... or it might take a little bit for it to re-figure that's why you seen the 44% for a few minutes.

    That thing has came up with so many odd surprises over the years... I'm not convinced we'll ever fully understand it lol.

    Seems like a good incentive to keep members active :)

    I would suggest something like a monthly 'guestbook' thread. I've seen this being used in many other forums. The admins/mods create a new 'Guestbook' thread at the 1st of every month somewhere at the main page, if possible, so it will be hard to miss.

    Members who log in just have to post in the guestbook once a day, and you can create subforums for individual days if you are concerned about time zone differences. That way, a new day would only count once there IS a thread for it.

    The public attendance thread was basically the same idea, however the Activity bar won the vote. It's possible in the future a similar thread could be used along side of it for added bonuses but for now we have to just getting the system up and running using the Activity Bar before adding in any extras.

    True that. I didn't know that the activity bar had won over the attendance thread before. but since it has already happened, then the best thing to do now is to optimize how the activity bar works. (Since it was mentioned that it may act a bit weird sometimes, lol)

    Yes, the activity bar is strange, but also quite easy to check :)
    Maybe we can combine both?

    Make a thread with all the possible bonuses and activity needed for those, this thread would be open for 24/48/72 hours each month, everyone who wants the bonus has to post there to get the bonus in that time (this way you prevent giving people bonuses who haven't logged in for almost a month)

    Well it changes rapidly so a few days of absence can cost you a lot :)

    Every day would be good. Think the ones who come and contribute to the forum everyday should be rewarded in that system somehow:).

    Agreed, rewarding daily activity is ideal. Using some of the ideas in this thread I've came up with random bonus days to help cover this, also got a further defined concept for the activity system (well the base anyways) using pretty much everything in this thread:

    All %’s seen below will be determined via the Activity Bar. The Activity bar will be checked every two weeks, points will be awarded shortly after. You must post in the activity thread once at some point during a cycle (two weeks) to be eligible for the cycle. (this is due to how Activity Bar works and to save time)

    Please keep in mind these are rewards for active users and not requirements.

    Ogre Regulars:

    -If activity is 35% and Above - 75 points

    -Every % over 50% = 1, up to 50 total points

    -90-100% 25 points

    Total Possible: 150 (300 a month)

    Ogre Royals

    -If activity is 65% and Above - 150 points

    -Every % over 50% = 1, up to 50 points total.

    -90-100% 25 points

    Total Possible: 225 (450 a month)

    If fail to reach 65%, dropped to Ogre Regulars Reward tier for the cycle.

    Moderators

    -If Activity 90% and Above - 75 Points

    This bonus is on top of Ogre Regular or Royal Ogre bonuses. In the rare case a Mod is not a Ogre Regular or Royal Ogre, the Mod will be put in the Ogre Regulars reward tier.

    Bonus:

    Post in this thread on random bonus days (valid 24 hours starting from the announcement) - 100 Each Day

    I'd also like to see this bonus, however it's highly opinion based so I think it comes down to if Ogreman wants to judge it or not... could be a monthly bonus to ease work load:

    Participating in the community by adding helpful threads, creating some very informing threads, videos, blogs, etc. - ?

    Also thought maybe the results of Member of the Month could be used to determine it... while not perfect, maybe something like this:

    For every Vote add a 0 then divide by 2, so 16 would be 160/2 = 80 Points - This would be monthly, after voting closes
