    I was just checking it out, and I noticed that the "number of buddies" top 10 lists people by how many buddies they have in their buddy lists. I don't really see how that's an accomplishment. Shouldn't it be the number of people who have you in their buddy list? The query shouldn't be any more complex, just a little different

    What do you guys think?

    That would be much harder given how vB stores buddy lists (a space-delimited list of userids per user row; my script just counts the spaces).

    LOL... I can't believe vB would store buddy lists that way !!!! I've really lost so much respect for forum programming upon seeing how they designed the damn things.

    What's wrong with storing it that way? Makes sense to me.
