I would not recomend 100% reliance on any formula.

However formulas can be very comprehensive. If banning wars become a thing, then diminish the value of people that have simalar ignore lists.

I have no access to the inside numbers, but if 30% of your posts are to a single board, and 70% of the readers of that board have you on ignore, then you might be a problem.

After I made this suggestion, I saw a request that number of posts to certain boards be limited. This I suspect would be a very good idea.

Analysis of the existing posting trends would need to be done, but I suspect that you could find that even the most valuable posters only post 4 to 10 posts per day.

Each board is different, and some could be set to unlimited.
