@dennismsmith Hi - as well as enabling the stock reputation system, I am usingnodebb-plugin-reputation-rules nodebb-plugin-user-level
For the leaderboard, you could usenodebb-plugin-leaderboard
I personally do not use this, but it's there.
I use the nodebb-plugin-night-mode to switch off the light but noticed that with the Cerulean Skin many buttons show with a glowing white background color which of course is not compatible with a dark mode theme (mod).
It works just fine with Cosmos and some others skins I tested. It is possible to get that fixed with Cerulean ? I think that skin just looks best on NodeBB.
