Word count in user profiles?
Just a suggestion, but for some communities (such as fiction ones) having a total tally of their word count in profiles would be cool. Perhaps as part of a general "user analytics" type plugin, maybe, with other totals such as images posted, characters posted, etc? But certainly in a way that's also made available to plugins like Member List.
I suppose it would need to have options to ignore stuff in blockquotes, too. But even if it could never be particularly accurate, it seems like a great alternative to postcount as an indicator of participation.
