A few ideas on forum ranking, these are just ideas.

I am excluding forums that allow guest posts as there are far too many forums that have been left by their owners and taken over by spammers, until this is addressed guest posts should not be counted.

(I am going to be putting forward my suggestions to deal with this problem elsewhere)

 There needs to be a few categories discussed / mixed up / combined for the ranking system in my opinion. 

1. For most active diamond forum,  highest page views / posts combined / % active members?

2. For Most active free forum, Highest Page Views / posts combined / % active members?

3. For forum with most active % of Members? (has to have over at least 30 members I reckon) but isn't a high page view forum?

Now the next one is a bit more complex in some ways and easier in others (as there is no actual programing needed)

4. For Most adapted forum (Showcase?) (excluding forums using external skins) loosely  based on the old masters format / design, ease of use, colour use etc. This is a hands on ranking system, not automatic and can only be done with the correct usage of whatever criteria we decide on and that the people tasked with this are, 1 happy to do so and 2 have an agreement with aimoo over some form of reimbursement (however big or small that may be) as it would be time consuming and needs to be talked about before it starts, if it does. 

I am not saying the above is a good idea or one that anyone would want to take on, my thoughts on this are mixed as I don't like forums covered with massive icons of scantly clad cartoon women or glitter flashing borders etc..... so I am not sure if I would be a good choice BUT who knows eh, these are just ideas coming out of my head and onto this post.

I don't actually know / remember how the showcase forums are ranked at the moment, i guess they are looked at by admin?
