Have each Leaderboard have three tabs...

Overall
Yearly
Monthly

This would keep in place an overall leaderboard, while having one that is constantly updating from month to month, and year to year.

This would keep a more up-to-date set up, so you don't have to have years of history to be one of the best members of that month. It would also keep a changing Leaderboard, as many Leaderboards on this site isn't likely to change. This way, even if you aren't the greatest member ever, you can be the greatest member that month, or the greatest member that year. And if you are the greatest member ever, you don't out shadow everyone who is, at that moment. doing much better than you.

(Greatness is relative to which Leaderboard you are reviewing.)

If someone (Airmax) could delete the other post, that'd be great... The thing glitched, and returned me to the editing screen instead of the Forum, saying the topic was not unique, I didn't know it had actually posted it.

Seems like an interesting idea. And not too hard to code.

That way newer members could have their time to shine on certain boards if they're especially active.
The wise have eyes in their heads, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realizethat the same fate overtakes them both.
Then I said to myself,
"The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?"
I said to myself, "This too is meaningless."
For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!
- Ecclesiastes 2:14-16

I'll throw a suggestion out there too.

I'd like the topics count to be clickable, linking to a list of that person's topics. While NOT doing the same for posts.

Lol, this is something that has been proposed to Juggle (but doing it quarterly, every 3-months) and doing it for all categories, debates, votes, and posts.
