Clearing Things Up
To clear some things about the Top Poster check based on some of the issues brought up:
1. The check is made based on 24 hours at 12am GMT. Do not confuse this with your time zone or daylight savings. GMT is always the same.
2. When you check the Top Poster page it updates the time and numbers of each Poster (Including what is shown on the columns). When no one checks it then you see the last info based on auto updates made on the hour.
3. This is how the check is made to see who is the Top Poster: The system looks for all the Posts made since 12am GMT and creates rows of info based on who is the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. There is no "Reset" on the Post count what does reset is the timer or count down clock that tells you how much hours and minutes are left.
4. Now this is the part I think confuses some people. If you made 100 Posts before 12am GMT then those Posts will not be part of the final count at 12am GMT the next day but they will show up to the times you Posted it once it was within a 24 hour period prior to the check.
Some Updates To This - The 20 mark.
In preparation for some changes in 2017, I will be changing this Contest slightly starting tomorrow 30 January, 2016.
First, the Top Poster will get 125 FP!
Second, you must have a minimum requirement of 20 Posts in order to qualify for the 125 FP. In other words, if you are the Top Poster of the day but only have 19 or less Posts you will not be rewarded the top prize even though you are the Top Poster of the day. This also adds balance so regular Posters can know who is contesting against 'Runaway Posters' for the win.
Those who got over 20 Posts but did NOT get the Top Poster spot will get 50 FP for their attempt. This is in addition to the FP you are getting for Posting anyway. In this way, Posters do not have to feel bad for losing or feel their effort was wasted.
