What does this hack do?

This hack shows the top poster in each forum, in the forumdisplay template (so when viewing the forum, you can see the top poster for that forum).

The line that displays the top poster for the forum is in the template, so you can move it anywhere you want it to show up!

View screenshots for examples!

Instructions

Thanks! Now, is there a way to put it in a table (something simple like the "attached thumbnails" box). would make them look more organized.

I agree, also installed this hack, but even with the database fix it created too much server load.

Is there any way someone can mod this hack into the vb2 style of showing a forums top posters? I want this hack but it doesn't really fit the way it is, I would prefer that it would make the forums 'replies' on the forumhome a link, so when you click it a vb3 style dropdown box opens with the top however many posters.

I could possibly mod this hack myself to do what I want, but I'm fairly new to this and I'm not sure if A: It'll work o.o, or B: the loading times that it will add to the forumhome.

I think you could make this code more efficient by grabbing a template once, instead of grabbing it for each user in the list...

But I'm not sure if that would reduce the amount of queries though, just seems logical.

Nice hack, I'll play with it!
