Hi,
it just came to my mind:
There are people (like me I have to admit...) who are posting into newsgroups because the need help. Other people offer help. I don't know if anyone is interested in that difference ;) but if so you could count the replies AND also count replies to threats which weren't started from this user...

Ehh that would mean rewriting a big part of the board (which was written by a whole team of php programmers), so I don't think they'll be doing that...

Then again, maybe they have some free time on their hands ;-)

Progster may be right when it comes to actually finding a place to store the information and a way to display it, but figuring it out is not so hard, I don't think. I'm not sure whether topic_id is unique across all forums or not, but assuming it is,
Code:
select poster_id,count(post_id) from phpbb_posts, phpbb_topics where phpbb_topics.topic_id = phpbb_posts.topic_id and post_id = topic_first_post_id group by poster_id;
...should give you a list of posters and how many threads they have started.

But all these numerical measurements are rather cold. Let's just try to follow "give what you can; take what you need".
