Hi Nino, all

Having "false-positives" ist bad, of course.

Couldn't agree more :)

There were at least 3 guys that were particularly helpful on the second Bug
Hunting Session while I was online (probably there were many more). I
thanked them publicly on IRC (not the same as a BoD member doing it but
still...) but then there wasn't even a nice Thank you post on the TDF blog
like for BHS 1...
I have already commented with Cor that this was really bad.

That is ugly. I think that rather than showing counts (although it could be
sorted by counts)  it would be much nicer to have something like

Rainer Bielefeld (Since Oct 2011)

or if someone stopped contributing for over a month

Rainer Bielefeld (Between Oct 2011 and Dec 2011)

Eventually people that stopped contributing for e.g. 2 months would be
moved to a linked "Former contributers" (or something similar) page as new
more active people would be more visible. If they returned the original
date would show up (of course the break would count as being active but it
would be petty to reset the starting date...)

This would put more weight into being active rather than a rat race to have
more points over time... Top contributors would still show on top but
without showing the numbers.

Just my 2 (non-dev) cents
