Alkaren already said it's disabled because people look at the top 10 posters, and it encourages spam.

There is also a vulnerability relating to the members list which can reveal peoples passwords and such... not nice.

Someone close this thread and give it a proper topic so it can be looked at in the future.

It's pointless, and promotes spamming even more.

You'd be surprised, my friend. People will/did spam just os they could have a higher 'ranking' in the top posters.

the hell? How are we suposed to catch up to Kamuii with his 10000 posts? No one will do it and Avatars and Personal Titles encourages spam more than to be the top posters!

How about you enable the memberlist, but disable the toplist?

The memberlist also easily reveals AIM names, e-mails, and ICQ, so it'd be easier to spam those communication systems.

It takes up more db space as well, I believe.

I think it's worthless to turn it back on. Is it really necessary? Think about it.

If you and others are worried about that then why do most people put them in there name?
