    I don't know where the best place to put this is, so I picked here. I hope enough people see this.
    If a moderator thinks it is worthy of being moved, please do so.

    I had a couple of ideas for fun distractions on the website, that I am hoping someone who is inclined will want to do.

    First is the "Mileage Leaderboard". Make a simple form to enter your EV mileage ( you do it every few days ), and then it tells you your ranking compared to everyone else on the site, and there is a leaderboard page where you can see everyone who participates.
    I know that I don't drive a lot of miles and am nowhere near the top, but I thought it would be fun. It would also be fun to see the total go up.

    The second I call "Paint the World Green". You enter cities or towns you drive your EV to. The data gets aggregated and we collectively try to fill in the whole world. ( We can start with a small set of countries and expand. ) As an alternative, instead of a destination, you enter a route you have driven and paint that way.

    Anybody interested?
    I volunteer to help PM and test, but I suck at web dev. I am an old C programmer.

    Not advocating for or against the distractions, but I would think wh/m would be a better leaderboard. Some people just drive a lot. Some people have had their cars years, while others have had theirs for a month. Not exactly a fair competition.

    I suspect the Wh/mi chart would just be a merging of climate and terrain maps.

    Lowest Wh/mi would be 'Who's enjoying their car the least?':)

    That's really funny. So highest Wh/mi is enjoying the most...

    Highest Wh/mi probably has shares in Tire Rack.

    I was just thinking it would be fun to know the total miles driven by TMC members.

    Add the date the car was delivered, and calculate miles/day. That's what the what the ActiveE guys did for ActiveE East Coast Versus West Coast Mileage contest
    (TMC's own MPT did the programming)

    Or a rolling total of the past 30 days or similar.

    Not that TMC needs to be any more distracting. In fact I would probably take less distracting if I could. I know my boss would.
