Custom Comment Leaderboard - ideas?

Hey everyone :wave: I had this idea, but I’m not sure if it’s feasible. I’d like to build a leaderboard for top comments where people can spend coins or points to be in the top 5 comments.

Context: We have a live stream for pool players and cast the score onto a TV in the room. Their friends and family often ask us to pass along messages via chat and social media, while they are playing. I’d like to create this top comment leaderboard so that people can send their own messages and it will display on the TV next to the score. This way players can compete without us interrupting and their friends and family can deliver their messages.

What do you guys think?

You have to be more explicit about the process… make a step-by-step workflow

What happens when the 6th person spends coins? Which 5 among the 6 will be displayed?

Here’s what I’m thinking:

  1. User creates account, purchases coins
  2. Completes form with these fields: comment (short text field), coins (dropdown selector - number is calculated based on remaining number of coins)
  3. Leaderboard List Display: top 5 comments, username, coin spend (highest number of coins spent)

“Bumped Comments” that were out bid by new comments or higher coin spend is not displayed for “anyone”. To start users will need to resubmit the form with a new wager to out bid others. In the future, might be able to re-wager new coins to repost comment.

I would say only the top spend comments will display. Users will need to resubmit their comment/coin spend in a form to get back on the leaderboard.

Very simple… sort your comments list by the number of spent coins, and limit the list item in options to 5…
The only problem is that if positions 5 and 6 have the same amount, you would have to make a restriction not to enter an existing amount or display more than 5
