Add 2 more columns to the leader board:

1. date/time or "minutes ago" of last comment

2. first 40 characters of that comment...

Most of the people I like to follow are already on the leader board. It sure would be nice to know who's on-line right now and what they're talking about without having to drill down 20 times.

Possible additional benefits of this enhancement:

1. People may take an extra moment or two to examine their comment's quality if they knew it would shortly be on a "master" page for all to see.

2. An additional route for people to join a conversation they're interested in.
