I'm still bitter about the community scoring being changed a year or so back, I'm sure I ended up lower in the league table when that happened. I have been awarded a "surfing panda" badge (or something similar) several times recently though, so it's not all bad.
Currently lingering just outside the top 100, I guess I should follow a few more people if I want to break through that barrier.
Following people isn't worth nearly as many points as being followed. Having content marked helpful or correct is also a great way to earn points if that's your thing
