Re: [Robert_B] plugin to calculate "points" for users In reply to
Ian and I worked on something like this in his UserMonitor plugin several years ago to rank users on their interaction with the site. The score I had, included number of logins and how many helpful votes their reviews received. I think it was just updated everytime the profile page for that user was viewed - this was on a dynamic site.

One way to update on each build is to use your sub as a global that doesn't print anything (either in the globals list or as a separate sub in your plugin). Then you can just call the global on the homepage and every time the homepage the global will invisibly do its stuff. (If I haven't explained that properly let me know).
